Intimidating, ain't it?  I got an incomplete (dammit, serves me right) mp3 of
it someplace because it's not on the  Adler CD I own.  Adler makes me mad.
He was too good.  I had no idea who hard a chrom could be to play even
passably, much less like that.  Adler in truth is one of the reasons I picked
up the chromatic as a "starter" harp.  "Hey, I wanna do that."  But for me,
that's like Broderick Crawford hearing Jussi Bjoerling sing "La Reve" from
Massenet's Manon and deciding he wants to be an operatic tenor.
