    Default 18th Century Music Blog

    To the interested, I have started a new blog on 18th century music. Yeah crazy idea since the classical music blog market is saturated. Anyway, I do that for the fun. At the menu, I will present some pieces (but also classical music news) based on themes or thematic days. Welcome and forgive my english (not really fluent in english). I want to reach the most people that way.

    Interesting work, my fellow Handelian. Nice looking blog.

    I would suggest you could expand the Handel section by listing Handel's favourite genre; operas and oratorios, with a selection of favourite/recommended recordings. At the end of the day, people will only reach out to a composer by listening to their works, which they may not have ever done before, rather than reading about it.

    Thanks for the comment.... Well I try to keep the writing to minimum since my main goal is to share music. But I agree it would be a nice idea to have some "best of" entries for each composers.

    The Biber article is awesome. I really want a recording of that beautiful Requiem.
