  1. Clarinetist Jože Kotar

    by , Today at 09:00 (Pierre's Tuesday Blog)
    Today's Once Upon the Inernet showcases Slovenian clarinetist Jože Kotar in works I believe were downloaded from the original MP3.COM, though my notes aren't quite as clear on that as I wold have liked. I fact, the date of the release of some of these tracks indicate either late 2003 or early 2004, which is awfully close to when the site stopped operating.

    According to the artists' official website, ...

    For those unfamiliar with our monthly recordings review - If Sound Quality (SQ) and Overall Impression (OI) grades need further context, feel free to visit earlier posts in this series.

    Since we have a "bonus Tuesday" this month, I thought I would catch up with the "collector" portion of my blog, and suggest some titles I acquired over the Summer.

  3. Vinyl's Revenge - L'Orchestre des Jeunes du Québec

    by , Sep-09-2014 at 09:00 (Pierre's Tuesday Blog)
    Today is the first of a new monthly feature (along with the Podcast Vault, Once Upon the Internet and La Chronique du Disque) which I will program on the Tuesday Blog.

    The premise is fairly straight forward: there are several YouTube Channels that feature music from old vinyl records, and I figured “why not do that too”. The idea is that once a month, I will share an album from my vinyl collection that I am featuring on my YouTube channel – my own YouTube clips or those of others ...
  4. Empty Nest

    After taking the summer off, the Tuesday Blog returns to its weekly format, and we begin with our monthly selection from the Podcast Vault, as we revisit a montage from March of 2012.

    One of the many things that was on our plate for the past few weeks was packing up two of our kids: one for University, the other (who finished in the spring) finally moving out. With these last two departures, ...

  5. Beethoven's Summer Vacation

    by , Aug-05-2014 at 09:00 (Pierre's Tuesday Blog)
    I am stepping out of "Vacation Mode" to share some music and provide some listening suggestions for August - though Trout and Oskaar have been keeping the blog space thoroughly entertained with their ongoing series, which I've taken the time to sample myself...

    Last month, I left you with a month's worth of Canadian music, and this month - as many music institutions do in the Summer - I will concentrate on a "Composer Festival" format.
