A composer’s best friend?

The ever fabulous and irreverent Intermezzo Blog has pulled out all the stops for a post on composers (and other musical celebrities) and their hounds. Please click  the Blue Text  “This is what internets are made for” or scroll down past the other two interesting, if somewhat bawdy items.

Our favorite composer is in there too – with his dog of course!

Interesting is La Scala opening their season with Lohengrin featuring Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Harteros. Intermezzo’s cynical remark about Ms. Harteros comes after the singer canceled an opening night gala recital with full orchestra at the Berlin Staatsoper. This left the Staatsoper scrambling at the last minute to refund tickets and notify patrons.

The above Liebig Card features the beautiful St. Bernard and the Newfoundland breeds.
