Saturday Snapshot: Saturday Serenade


"When the record finally ends he is still barking, sitting there in the oboe section barking, his eyes fixed on the conductor who is entreating him with his baton

while the other musicians listen in respectful silence to the famous barking dog solo, that endless coda that first established Beethoven as an innovative genius."

From Another Reason Why I Don't Keep A Gun In The House

by Billy Collins
