    Guess I'm going through a modern music phase. I've been listening to considerable amounts of 20th century music lately. And I'm slowly adapting to atonality. It doesn't bother me a lot any more.

    But after a day's worth of modern, I turn to Schubert's songs and some Liszt's piano to refresh my mind and soul.

    If by no. 11 you mean op. 7 no 5 you're probably reminded of the Canon because of this piece's use of a ground bass (which is only remotely simnilar to that used by Pachelbel). But anyways, this is definitely my favorite piece by Handel - maybe even of the entire Baroque era! Another great work that also uses a pretty ground bass is Vivaldi's concerto no 11 from La Stravaganza, RV 204.

    You might have only listened to it. You only really discover the work when you listen to this lectures by Andras Schiff

    Actually, I discovered the numerological coincidence rather than the piece itself.

    I only listen to pieces, and when I say that I have discovered one, I mean that I heard it for the first time. Thanks for the link. I'll go through it, but I can guarantee that I will understand it if it is technical.

    I'm surprised you haven't listened to it before. Or did you mean to post it in What are you listening to... thread?

    Nope Mr. O, I'd never heard of the man named Fred before.

    I'm in the right place.

    Okay, now I'm officially surprised. I have heard it non-zero times, but am not familiar with it.

    Today I discovered Symphonies written by Anton Fils - never heard of this composer before. He was born in 1733, died in 1760 and was - as explained in the CD booklet - one of the most important symphonists of the so-called "Mannheim school". Some years after his early death the following was written about him: "This young composer is full of spirit and fire in his symphonies, and his slow movements are full of charm and harmony."

    The Symphonies are played by "L'Orfeo Baroque orchestra" (Leader: Michi Gaigg) on historical instruments.

    It is only in the last two weeks that I have really "gotten into" classical music. i count myself so fortunate to have discovered classical music at this point in my life. Was in a bit of a rut and now I find myself excited to begin to explore new music every day.

    Today I woke up and listened to the entire of beethoven's 4th symphony. I'm sure many of you have heard this countless times, but I think todayw as the first time I gave it a proper listen.

    Anyway, the joy of hearing this music with my morning coffee!

    on a rainy morning, as a student on holiday, makes me grateful to no longer be one of the massess scrambling to and from work on a busy commuter train and instead listen to this great music, and so i wrote...

    A smile was on my face when I read this Eric, because it is almost exactly how I related to the discovery and "getting into" classical music.

    Enjoy the journey......it gets better every day!
