Do you pick randomly or does it take some time for you to decide?
I couldn't help but notice that many of you here on this forum have pretty large music collections, whether in digital download or in CD format. I wonder if you guys ever had problems choosing from your collection a particular piece/disk to enjoy. To be frank, my collection isn't very big, but not infrequently I suffered this difficulty of pulling out a record to listen to decisively. The following scenario would be typical: Hmm, now I've got some time to deal with a Mahler or a Bruckner symphony at last, but a Schumann or Wolf song recital would be nice too--I could read the booklets to improve my understanding of the words. Oh no, I just received the Stravinsky box not long ago; perhaps I should investigate that set. Or, shall I be easy with myself and stay with my favorite Bartok. Then I would probably run into panic, panting and sweating and need a lot of snacks and water to revive (of course, I'm exaggerating). Do you have similar experiences like mine, or can you see the essence of my strange behavior and tell me how to get rid of it?
I'm looking forward to your replies.
