Music and Dogs: What's Not to Like?

Here is a piece of music for clarinet and orchestra which deserves to be better known.

I always liked this picture of Ferruccio Busoni with his St Bernard.

Wagner used to have a Newfoundland which he brought to Britain with him, but as he pre-dated the era of photojournalism we have no pictures of the Wagnerian pooch. Busoni's, though, we have. Maybe we need a website for Composers And Their Dogs.

Anyway, cool music and cool dog.
