Suppose you have an insane amount of recorded music and suppose you want to sit down and really focus on an entire work and not just have it play as backgorund wallpaper -- how do you go about choosing your focus for an evening's serious listening?
How do you decide whether to explore an unfamiliar piece or revisit a cherised masterpiece?
When I'm not just letting the computer / stereo choose things at random, I have this problem in choosing what I want to hear. I even stew over it a bit -- but then I consider that part of the enjoyment too. For me, it's a ritual I suppose.
