Alternative to Baseball

Ok - here's what some people who are NOT baseball fans do while their TV is occupied with World Series playoff games: they watch YouTube! ... sad, I know, but what can I say?

Anyway, after checking out a Japanese tin whistle player employing circular breathing, I started viewing what YouTube designated as "Related" videos. Soon I stumbled onto the only flute quartet I've ever heard that didn't sound like a calliope. Listen to the whole thing - it's quite beautiful (despite the fact that it's not Irish). While you're listening, read the comments to learn a bit about the circumstances surrounding the composition of this piece. Nice, right?
