Peter Tchaikovsky Nearly Loses Head!
The magnificent Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky was yet another in the line of geniuses who sometimes came unhinged. Tchaikovsky loved to compose, but he hated to conduct. Unfortunately, conducting opportunities came up way too often for him — including the gala opening concert of Carnegie Hall in 1891. Neurotic to the core, Tchaikovsky conducted with one head firmly on top of his head, in the desperate belief that otherwise his head would fall off.
Шары, как рукописи, не горят. То есть, совсем не горят. Даже если их злонамеренно поджигать.
Хорошо, что не горят. Это избавляет от страха перед полётом.
