What saddens me, Mr. Nohe, is that you are a student (I believe you have
identified yourself as such several times here) and I offered to help you
learn something. But what absolutely depresses me is that you seem proud of
your ignorance.

I'm afraid your hopes have been dashed. My sincere apologies for my

amazing lack of education. Would you like to continue to insult me

further? Please, really, I like being belittled.

Unfortunately, my professor made it clear during my 1750-present class

that several composers would be rather glanced over, as he felt 3 hours a

week was hardly enough time to cover everything he would have liked to.

We did however, spend two classes on Wagner alone, and two classes on

Brahms alone. Perhaps he felt that the musical developments that Dvorak

made were better presented in Brahms and Wagner. But what do I know,
