This I did Yesterday :

I went to youTube
online
and started listening to Stephen Montague's
Haiku for piano, tape and electronics,
a piece I like very much,
and which sounds to me like a commentary
or a reflection, a discussion
on a piece by Jánáček
in his On an Overgrown Path suite for piano.
Staying on the Montague recital,
I opened youTube in another window
and started listening, simultaneously,
to Richard Pohl, live in Brno (once Brünn),
playing Jánáček's Stationary Owl
(a beautiful sensation)

while reading the comments on the latter's
excellent interpretation.
