In the stereo sweet spot

Ginger is auditioning the Carnival of the Animals from Sony's Sir Malcolm Arnold: The Complete Conifer Recordings. Sir Malcolm's Carnival of the Animals is a supplement to Saint-Saëns’s eponymous work and portrays six zoological species which failed to make it into the Ark first time around. My thanks go to all those readers who have supported my plea for Malcolm Arnold's music to receive a wider hearing. Let us hope that one of his symphonies makes it into the Ark known as the Royal Albert Hall next time around.

Can Ginger hear Chiroptera?

Yes John, when we take him out late in the evening with his harness on he spends a lot of time with ears pricked up looking up into the sky. As a post here said, classical music can learn a lot from our feline friends -
