Bach cantata notationEdit

thanks for correcting me on my edit to the new year cantata article, however now seems that https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bach-Werke-Verzeichnis (and other articles of works with both notations) needs a clarification on that same point. 94.253.248.92 (talk) 09:33, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Go ahead, do it, wherever you read that the traditional BWV numbers are of the past. I am busy, so can't help, sorry. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:35, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147a - when I see it in articles I watch I correct it. Today, I have several more urgent things to do ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:59, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

2019Edit

...Als festlich hoher Gruß, dem Morgen zugebracht! Many thanks and very best wishes to you too. I am still stuck in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Belcea played the Cantabile from op. 130 wonderfully at the Wigmore Hall and I haven't quite shaken off the reverie yet. Why should I want to? Eebahgum (talk) 21:41, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Indeed ;) - Monteverdi for us next, - come 1 September, you'll like it! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:44, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks and congratulationsEdit

Dear Gerda
Thank you for your New Year greeting, and how appropriate to have Die Zeit, die Tag und Jahre macht as the featured article. Your contributions here are priceless.
best wishes, --Michael Goodyear   22:46, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you, so are yours, regarding Hannah Arendt. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 22:49, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
I came here to say mostly the same thing as Michael. Congratulations on starting the new year with a featured article! 78.26 (spin me / revolutions) 23:08, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Raymond ArrittEdit

PanydThe muffin is not subtle 00:01, 12 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for the good news, Panyd, and good to see your name again. I wanted this hook for 1 January, including its good resolutions, but then wasn't sad about having our music pictured instead. Not too late for resolutions, New Year or not. DYK that he probably kept me on Wikipedia, by the line - which brought him to my attention - that I added to my editnotice, in fond memory? Happy New Year! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:11, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the link. Happy New Year to you too.Thoughtfortheday (talk) 15:45, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Arritt had a great beard and a wonderful smile. I'm sure I would have liked him. Finetooth (talk) 18:24, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
So am I. I forgot to mention that he wrote the ultimate guide to arbitration, - if only I had known that ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 19:33, 12 January 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for the Happy New Years card! Felt good to get stuck in on DYK again and I loved the quote! PanydThe muffin is not subtle 10:31, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

SchicchiEdit

I didn't know other Wikipedias were not trusted sources since I've seen references for using translated materials. More interesting to me is the difference between the two Schicchi images: same costume, but one is sly and sleek, the other cheerfully spry and clownish. Thank you anyway. Cheers! Shir-El too 20:40, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

PS as you love music, suggest you look up "BIRD SONG OPERA" - and have a Good Year! Shir-El too 20:43, 14 January 2019 (UTC)

Shir-El too, translating is fine, but it needs references. Translate an article without coverting them to inline citations, and you get into trouble, - just ask LouisAlain. The police is more after new articles than established ones, but Gianni Schicchi is a featured article = highest quality class. The Italian Wikipedia should have an independent source that can be used, instead of citing only that Wikipedia. And if not, you can hopefully find one ;) - Thank you for the bird song opera! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:41, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
Adding: the topic "infobox" is hot, - I won't know why. I try to stay away, and recommend to avoid discussions. You will hear the same things again and again. My thoughts were written in 2013: help those who don't read English so well, are vision-impaired, need a certain information fast, - it doesn't hurt. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:31, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

HelloEdit

Hi Gerda. It's me really, alt account, don't ask! Whilst trying and slightly-failing to take a break I have done one good thing on-wiki – please see a lovely new photo of Emanuel Hurwitz that I just added a day or two back. Well when I say new, I mean yes obviously Manny died 12+ years ago so new to the article! But I do feel it's nice to have. It's not even a good photo technically but I do like what it captures. Thanks for the messages – I have emailed you in Real Life or what I like to think of as somewhat related thereto. Cheers DBaK-photo (talk) 21:37, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing. Reminds me of my earliest days on Wikipedia, when I filled the red link for a friend whose father was a member of the Melos Ensemble, and then created some more about other members, receiving nice comments from their relatives (the violist and an oboist). Hurwitz, however, had an article already, so I didn't touch that much. Today I'm expanding a hymn, and what do I read in one of promising sources? My older version of the article ;) - It's in honour of my dad for whose funeral we sang it, as for weddings in the family. He died some 15 January, DYK? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:53, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Fallt mit Danken, fallt mit Loben, BWV 248 IVEdit

 On 23 January 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Fallt mit Danken, fallt mit Loben, BWV 248 IV, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status.

Günter KrämerEdit

Bravo for your interventions on this one but don't put yourself in harms way. There are some happy triggers around here. I'm sorry to cause you so many troubles.   LouisAlain (talk) 21:04, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

That last one wasn't caused by you, but someone who didn't look for a moment at the content, only at "no reference". You could do me a favour: when you see an article with all these details a loving fan thinks are neccessary, summarize brutally, and only what can be sourced, for a first step. Ute Vinzing was the first example, and Krämer will not be the last. - I've been through the hell of arbitration enforcement, nothing can frighten me any more. Did you know that Martin just sat his last block out, so did Joe with his last ban, - only I will not understand what good it should do to block and ban content editors. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:29, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
It has a whiff of Überwachen und Strafen in it. LouisAlain (talk) 04:55, 1 February 2019 (UTC)
... and the problem is that it's people who should be equal and colleages who do it. When missing any references, instead of writing a note, they could simply find and add one. Too practical? Less feeling of superiority? "Baking a cake is an act of love" - adding a ref the same. Do it often! (I mean everybody reading this, please.) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:40, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Im Frieden dein, o Herre meinEdit

 On 2 February 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Im Frieden dein, o Herre mein, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that when Friedrich Spitta (pictured) revised "Im Frieden dein, o Herre mein", a 1530 German Lutheran communion hymn based on the biblical Nunc dimittis, he completely changed the meaning? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Im Frieden dein, o Herre mein. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Im Frieden dein, o Herre mein), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000.

Nun bitten wir den heiligen GeistEdit

This [1] is the version I am listing to. The way the choral voices come in...wow. Ceoil (talk) 23:56, 9 February 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for sharing, - the choral Kyrie is extra, of course. Nite. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 00:03, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Morning. Ping when there has been more work and a further review would help. Ceoil (talk) 08:41, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Ceoil, yes, I will, but ... -Today, besides real life, I want to expand the boys' choir that the bishop founded who introduced "spiritual discourse and open dialogue" in his diocese (which is where I live). "spiritual" = "geistlich" is a difficult word, in German not the same as "spirituell", while "Geist" means "spirit" or "(Holy) Spirit", and "inspired" is close. Then we have the biographies which (blocked) LouisAlain started (blocked because he tried to help me, but admittedly in a way seen as disruptive, and what can I say? AGF is sometimes in short supply, as we already know), and the articles need copyediting and referencing before going to DYK (and some were sent to draft space). Then (probably also not today) I'd like to expand the article of a great singer whom I heard yeaterday, Christopher Maltman. I also want to finish the Rossini-PR. I'll see when I'll get to what I want to do ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:55, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
He he, know the feeling...so many articles and interests and so little time, and priorities change day to day. I always like reviewing your pages as it means new music, so whatever:) No pressure or rush Gerda. Ceoil (talk) 09:00, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Feel understood ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:45, 10 February 2019 (UTC)
Ceoil, and then Tomi Ungerer died, and I changed all my plans ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:31, 11 February 2019 (UTC)
Seems like he was an interesting man. New to me. Ceoil (talk) 00:09, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Ceoil, he made the many illustrations for Das große Liederbuch , the great songbook (really!), which I recommend to everybody who wants to introduce a (German-speaking) child to music. Now Hans Stadlmair dies whom I met and whose article I began, in 2011, DYK? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:59, 16 February 2019 (UTC)
Very evocative indeed...only got around to properly looking this morning, not been a great week :( You are giving coverage to a great many significant artists and works that otherwise wouldn't be covered on an English language wiki. I hope you know people see and understand this. Ceoil (talk) 12:45, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for saying that. I just wish I'd "catch" them before they died. For those "recent deaths", typically I did nothing but add references. I saw another one on the list of nominations, but it's just too far from my knowledge, and a problem of an article, flowery prose, practically no lead, way to poor referencing ... Peter Tork. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:57, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
St Fin Barre's main page splash turned out to be quite stressful, esp as I was on holiday and could only bear to peak on phone rather than really edit, but was glad that the Pärt article went well. Kudos. Ceoil (talk) 06:05, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, Ceoil, to hear about the stress. I watched some exchanges that day. - Listen to Tim's and PumpkinSky's recommendation the two other times scheduled: not even look the day and rely on your friends to fix it. (Sorry about Easter, my fault: some dark helmet was chosen, and I asked for something a bit more lively ...) I watch the TFA every day, regardless of who wrote it. I noticed that the topic of accessibility came up, for St Fin Barre about images, and I explained that its a word from a foreign language for some FA writers ;) - If I learned one thing here it's patience. - We are alive, Jörg Streli is not, so let's be thankful for what he did and we can do. Distant family, DYK? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:04, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for all the kind words on my talk page! It's exciting to see all that old work get recognized even nowadays. I can't believe it's been 12 years since I was sitting with my laptop on my kitchen table trying to conquer the world, haha. Tempus fugit! —Deckiller (t-c-l) 02:50, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Deckiller, thank you for coming over! I remember my first editing, filling a red link and thinking that would be the one and only article, only then it came with a red link for Siegfried Palm, - I couldn't believe he had no article, and ... --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:38, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

Thought of dropping by and saying thanks as well. I used to be quite obsessed with editing until things in RL started getting a bit rough (hopefully things will change for the better). The precious messages reminds me of the cool things I've achieved in the past - there are numerous websites that currently uses images, diagrams, and information which I contributed on wiki, on their websites - mostly about renewable energy. Your periodic messages keeps boosting my motivation to return to full swing as soon as I am able to. Thank you, Gerda. Rehman 13:15, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

A well deserved award. I am among those who find your well written DYK articles on music interesting and informative. I see you've also recently helped to bring three articles to GA and one to FA. Precious work indeed. And your enthusiasm never seems to wane.--Ipigott (talk) 10:41, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Lasting ImpactEdit

Gerda, I was reminded tonight of your giving me a Precious and it remains perhaps the nicest and most meaningful thing someone has done for me on Wikipedia. I have my Wiki friends who are great and who I get support an encouragement from but to have a "stranger" take the time to really look into me as an editor and capture the good I try to do here meant, and means a lot. I know I thanked you at the time but wanted you to also be thanked for the last impact. Best, Barkeep49 (talk) 02:57, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

For your enjoymentEdit

Hello GA. I thought of you when I saw today's Google doodle in honour of JS Bach's birthday. I'm not sure how you'll feel about a computer algorithm composing music but it is a bit of fun anyway. Best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 08:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for coming over, and I decorated above in different style ;) - With Francis Schonken blocked, and Mathsci missed, I feel rather lonely on the topic, but promised myself to expand a cantata today, an Italian one for the lighter mood of a birthday ;) - Did you know that 6 years ago on this day, I started a discussion (his talk archive) that hopefully would not happen again these days, after we all grew up a bit? GFHandel left because of it, which is a sad loss. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:09, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
ps: we celebrate today, but it's kind of wrong, as an old-style date, was actually 10 days later. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:11, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for all the info and the links. You are right about the sad losses. Your mention of the dates reminds me of an esoteric joke I heard long ago - What happened on October 10 1582? - Absolutely nothing :-) MarnetteD|Talk 09:17, 21 March 2019 (UTC)
There's a musical, Der kleine Tag (can't give you its German article, - they strike today, in protest to less free access to information), someone little experiencing several not-so-unusual events on a 23 April, which later turns out to have been a special day: peace all over the world!

Six years! Congrats on that gap and I'm glad that it wasn't actually about you :) On another Bach note I still have my vinyl of Switched-On Bach that I received as a child. It is amazing to think that all the elements that made up a Moog synthesizer (and more) can now fit in my phone. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 11:56, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Jacques LoussierEdit

Ach, I hadn't realised Jacques Loussier has recently died (I saw a comment you left elsewhere). I had the pleasure of attending a concert by the Jacques Loussier Trio at the Sheldonian in Oxford many years ago. I note our Wikipedia article says "The group was commercially successful but less popular with critics and jazz purists" - how I hate critics and purists! Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 11:43, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Out-of-place examplesEdit

Re:Out-of-place examples Hi - I think I might have just misunderstood the wording. I read it simply as "There were five symphonies. Tu Solus and De Profundis were two of them." It just seemed odd to me to name a seemingly-random two of the five (since nothing in the article seems to indicate there was anything particularly special about these two). The specific wording - "some of which carry titles such as" - also threw me off. It kind of made it sound like it was literally saying "titles similar to these," i.e. pithy Latin titles, which the other three do NOT have. But I honestly don't know anything whatsoever about this subject and it's totally possible something's going over my head here. -Elmer Clark (talk) 05:30, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Elmer Clark: My thoughts: when I updated the article of Heinz Winbeck, an article I had started in 2011, about another great person who recently died (Friedrich Achleitner the day before, Hans Günter Nöcker the day after, look above for "Another one bites the dust" - and had no article!) I was hit by Winbveck's last symphony being named "Jetzt und in der Stunde unseres Todes" (now and in the hour of our death, - nunc et in mortis hora, from the Ave Maria). I would have loved to mention THAT in the lead, but found it too long and too German. So I tried by the short Latin and familiar phrases, whoich could tell readers different things on different levels o understanding:
  1. He named symphonies, like a program. Rare, the names of symphonies from Mozart to Mahler were usually nicknamed later. Bernstein named one Kaddish.
  2. He chose Latin names, showing erudition.
  3. He chose phrases from Christian texts, showing background.
  4. He chose one from the Creed: "you alone [are the mmost high ...]", showing faith.
  5. He chose one from Psalm 130, "out of the deep [have I called unto thee]", a call from the misery of human existence.
I thought it was a lot of meaning in few words. RIP. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 07:42, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Ok fair enough, feel free to revert me :) -Elmer Clark (talk) 07:56, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Well, I restored, with links which perhaps help understanding the choices. DYK that the DYK for him was (in 2011): ... that Dennis Russell Davies conducted the premiere of the Fifth Symphony Now and in the hour of death by Heinz Winbeck, which reflects Bruckner's Ninth Symphony? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:40, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

I wonder how many got Precious several times without me knowing. I am hopeful that the crats can see what Iridescent and Opabinia regalis wrote. I don't want to be an admin, I don't get the article work done that I would like to (and sometimes don't like but feel have to like this wonderful singer mentioned above and had no article in English), and I wouldn't want to cut back Precious even if I misjudge at times. I smiled when I read Opppose when I searched for the triple p ;) - some like it seasoned. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:28, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
I've never seen you do anything that didn't have the best interests of the encyclopedia at its core. More than that, you explain why you do what you do. I use cooking salt even for seasoning - it's harsh but teaches restraint. -- Begoon 14:46, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
About time to blush again ;) - Restraint: I said (RexxS talk) I'd rather bite my tongue than return to the RfA, and it's partly bitten, I can tell you. Words such as "whitewashed" make me so angry ... - have music about guardian angels on the Main page, much nicer! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 15:05, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
I do try to be restrained. Sometimes I fail. -- Begoon 15:30, 6 April 2019 (UTC)
"I wonder how many got Precious several times without me knowing." That doesn't matter. I open doors for people all the time. It's a habit which makes me feel good for doing it and the recipient feel good for having it done. If someone were to tell me that I just opened a door for someone who might not 'really' have 'deserved' it, for whatever 'good reason', I doubt I'd change my behaviour. Nor should you. -- Begoon 13:53, 7 April 2019 (UTC)

Assessment request for Adele Spitzeder re. FAC chancesEdit

Hi there. Since you are one of the most prolific writers on the project and listed as a mentor for WP:FAC, would you mind giving me an opinion whether there is any chance to successfully nominate Adele Spitzeder (recently GA'd) for FA status? The pinnacle of my content writing are the seven GAs I collected so far but I never tried for FA before. Regards SoWhy 11:14, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

I will but not right now. Busy real life and sad things (see top). For FAC, I am a latecomer, and without one for this year so far, - you may be better off asking aothers. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 11:50, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
At a glance: looks good. Details to follow later. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:00, 15 April 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the first glance. If you are busy, I completely understand, I just looked for someone who speaks German and thus can understand the references without needing translation.   So if you don't have time to do it, feel free to point me in the direction of someone else you think qualified and I won't bother you with it anymore   Regards SoWhy 08:11, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
I am busy, see below, the week with singing four days in a row, and then a funeral, but next week may work. I thought of the writer of today's TFA, and the one for the Easter TFA, but they don't read German afaik, so just patience, please. If you see me archiving this without action please remind me, otherwise I will notice every time I archive. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:22, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

I got Iridescent's ping. I know nothing about the topic at all so I can't help that much but I can translate and check sources; I'll watchlist Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Adele Spitzeder/archive1 in the meantime. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 08:55, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
I understood that we are requested to say if turning the red link blue is a good idea ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:00, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, that would be super-helpful. FA is an area I've never been active in before, so I'll take any help I can get. And Gerda, please do feel free to decline if it's too much. I really understand and I won't harbor any negative feelings, I promise.   Regards SoWhy 09:15, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps look at today's TFA, also a woman, comparing to "yours", and look at that one's FAC (linked from the talk page), seeing what questions are typically asked. For preparation of any article: look for no duplicate links (unless justified), alt text for all images, proper licenses for them, full presentation of sources, a lead that covers the topic succinctly, etc. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:26, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
You might also want to ask some of the people who've written 19th-century biographies like SchroCat and Wehwalt to take a look. A few thoughts:
  • One thing that leaps out at me is the inconsistent referencing, with three instances of the wretched {{rp}} template but other references using {{cite book}} normally;
  • There are some very sprawling sentences like For health reasons, Spitzeder was incarcerated in the prison in Baader Street, Munich, where she wrote her memoirs, which included plans for the future after her release, such as opening a brewery in the Au, a large restaurant in western Munich and a horse racing track near Nymphenburg Palace, none of which came to fruition. which need to be broken up;
  • There are also little stylistic glitches like a mixture of "actress" and "actor";
  • Like all Ponzi schemes, her business relied solely on acquiring new customers quickly enough to pay existing customers with the newly acquired money may have four citations but is flat-out untrue; this doesn't describe most Ponzi schemes let alone all of them, as in almost all cases (including Ponzi himself) they start off as genuine investment schemes that continue operating rather than declaring themselves insolvent when the investment fails to generate the guaranteed return;
  • Are we sure File:Grab-Anna-Schmid-Friedrich-Schmid-Anna-Schmid-Alter-Suedl-Friedhof-Muenchen-GF-18-14-26.jpg is actually her grave? There are three names on the gravestone, none of which is "Adele" and none of the dates tally
If this goes to FAC, expect a lot more nitpicking of this kind, as I'm by no means the most nitpicky of the reviewers and the above is just from a very quick skim. I don't normally recommend it, but in this case it might be worth putting it at WP:PR, which gets this kind of nitpicking out of the way before the glare of FAC, and also has the advantage that you can invite people to comment if you think they'd be interested without any concerns about canvassing. ‑ Iridescent 20:58, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, and yes, peer review is something I'd recommend before a first FAC. I have one open, did you know? SchroCat is the author of today's TFA, recommended further up. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 21:06, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
@Iridescent: and Gerda: Thanks for the tips, I'll check on that and try PR of course. On a side note, as for the grave, the same gravestone is depicted in the ref #4, so I'm pretty sure that tracks regarding WP:V. Regards SoWhy 19:46, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
I will look at it but I now have five promised reviews so it may be a few days. It looks interesting.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:46, 20 April 2019 (UTC)

Good Friday, reverts, and WikiEdu student editorsEdit

I'm abashed that I confused you. The two different editors adding stuff to history section were "student editors" in a course partly involving WP editing. See Wikipedia:Wiki_Ed/University_of_Maryland/Introduction_to_Information_Studies_(Spring_2019) and search for 'Friday'. They were asked to spew forth on that article, so they did, and not well.

I'm looking at what a few students have done, and it's not all bad. But they tend toward essays inserted.

And one was responding to a "expand section" note. Only... is this not absolutely bonkers? Hey, we have a whole article on History of Japanese cuisine, but instead, could someone add some history to article Japanese cuisine? (Oh, and that link was already in article already).

The instructor has not yet responded to my question User_talk:Musicofasianamerica#How do you review student edits?. I'm interested, because it should be possible to have learners without requiring other editors to cleanup? Shenme (talk) 05:02, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

I confess that I didn't look into the whole thing as deeply as I should/would have with more time. There ae limits to treating a general article, such as Good Friday, around Good Friday, as a training ground, and if something is trained, WP:BRD might be a topic to learn about. We had Draft space, and a new article about some obscure subject might also be fine, but what we offer to thousands of readers shouldn't be the arbitrary product of someone learning, who perhaps didn't even understand where a topic belongs. Going to sing for Good Friday, playlist on top. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 05:59, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

DYK for Jens HarzerEdit

 On 24 April 2019, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Jens Harzer, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that Jens Harzer, a German actor with Hamburg's Thalia Theatre as well as in film and television, was chosen by Bruno Ganz to be the latest bearer of the Iffland-Ring?

You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Jens Harzer), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.
