Title: Re: voyager music

I am surprised that Beethoven IX Ode to Joy didn't make the cut. Looks like Karajan didn't make the cut either. I thought he was generalmusikdirecktor of the universe. J


Thanks Elmer for the joke. I (italics added) thought is was funny. If I were an alien I would have asked for some Mahler and Bruckner too.
