The Phantom Serenade: A Mad Genius
(This is actually a piece by Greek-born composer Iannis Xenakis, an avant-gardist of the first order whose organ compositions are full of dark horror. And a random sampling of his work sounds like Dr. Phibes' songbook.)
Happily, Lipsius is so absorbed in his playing that we're able to shimmy out of our bonds and escape with some of the Russian treasures he'd stolen recently; we're too outnumbered to capture him. But at least one of his lairs is known to us and he won't dare to come back...but will he be after us?
(And obviously, I'm back. My power was restored late Tuesday but I haven't had time to blog until tonight...)
