This week's tunes #2: Barenboim does Bruckner

I COULD say that I spent the week listening to Daniel Barenboim's conducting of the Berlin Philharmonic doing Bruckner as a tribute to French anthropologist and originator of structuralist philosophy  Claude Levi Strauss who died last week aged 100.
The old boy was apparently very partial to the 19th Century Austrian composer, but I don't know much more than this. Alas I was listening to it merely because the symphonies are a magnificent noise as background to writing. Very inspiring. One and all should, as the kids aver, check them out, innit.
