Wilberg, composer and arranger
By Jeffrey Borinsky
|Listening to BBC Radio 3 (the main UK classical music station) I heard some incredible music for 2 pianos with 4 hands. I have no info whatever on the composer/arranger called Wilberg. He composed "Fantasy" on themes from Bizet's 'Carmen' and arranged Sousa's 'Stars and Stripes Forever.' These works would make _great_ piano rolls. Has anyone already cut them? Does anyone know anything about Wilberg? Thanks in anticipation.|

[ Stripes.' Maybe those are are Wilberg's inspiration. -- Robbie
I'm sure glad I don't have the kind of power line problems that afflict some MMD members. In my work designing various bits of electronics I often specify MOVs or other surge protectors but without any real experience of seeing them work (or not). Some of the experiences sound frightening. The key seems to be defence in depth. MOVs, gas tubes, etc., will limit the initial surge and a fuse will limit the total energy 'I squared t' that passes to the surge limiters. If the MOVs are sometimes expendable that seems a small price to pay.
Thanks to Jody and Robbie for all the good work.
[ And thanks to you for participating by writing, Jeffrey! -- Robbie
