Music !

In October 2004, L'Écho de la timbrologie, a French philatelic monthly magazine, presented a topical collection about musical conducting. The chance of lurking into stamp-on-what's-left-of-the-covers at dealers and into the collection of a friend (a young woman... quite unusual), made me discover that the German Post regularly issue stamps in honor of German, Austrian or Swiss conductors.

Above, what I think the most beautiful of one of the most recent stamp : issued in 1994, it represents the German composer and conductor Hans Pfitzner.
