Old, wise and cunning can still beat young and gifted

October 26, 2007

I got a bit carried away yesterday with four posts but this will be it for today with time off line for a flight from Helsinki to London followed by Das Rheingold this evening. Next week may also be light as I have a double red eye to Singapore between Die Walküre on Sunday and Siegfried on Wednesday, a lecture in Lancaster on Thursday with Götterdämmerung on Friday evening. More on Wagner’s Ring Cycle next week. Even in isolation Wagner is more than simply music and a complete Ring Cycle (my fifth in person) is something special: 15 sublime hours.

For the moment, for all of those over 50 I thought I would share this myth busting post on what happens to your brain as it ages. There is hope out there, and of course, there is no comparison between Die Hochzeit and Parsifal if additional evidence is needed.
