The Scene: Reception Desk at the Pearly Gates.
St. Peter: "And you, sir, what is your name?"
Kondrashin: "Kondrashin. I was a conductor."
St. Peter: "Are you the same conductor who made that wonderful record of Rimsky-Korsakoff, Kabalevsky, Khachaturian and Tchaikovsky for RCA back in 1958?"
Kondrashin: "Yes, I suppose I am."
St. Peter: "It's a pleasure to meet you, sir! Many folks up here speak highly of your work. Several of them have even told me that YOU are directly responsible for their being here."
Kondrashin: "How can that be?"
St. Peter: "Well, they said that after listening to your record, they died and went to Heaven. Please come in!"
Listen to this record ..... if you dare!
