    Liszt - Fantasia on Hungarian Themes for Piano and Orchestra.

    There seems to be a melody inside which is rather similar to a Croatian song. It's from the region of Medjimurje (on the Hungarian border) and is called 'Stoprom sam se ozenil, vec me zena zbila' ('I just got married and my wife's already beaten me')
    ''Oh, the String Quartet - oh, the Divine Scratching!''

    Thanks! Well...thanks to my teacher, actually. I've always thought that understanding Beethoven and enjoying his music takes time and maturity.....but apparently not, i guess

    Have you listened to his string quartets yet? I've heard a few, but I'm not familiar with them all. I hear they too let you understand Beethoven.


    BTW, listening to Mozart's 44th symphony (an early one (supposedly) incorrectly attributed to Leopold earlier)

    Gah, I have yet to discover many great composers....I want to find some nice recordings of Mahler and Elgar, Dvorak, and Brahms symphonies but haven't found the time. hopefully after exams, I'll be able to go on a nice shopping trip to the classical music store downtown

    Just returned home and needed something easy and familiar so it's Scheherezade.

    I don't feel like breaking away from well-trodden paths right now.

    Please do. Would you believe, Beecham?

    Ah, the all-famous Beecham. I believe that was the first version I heard of this work.

    Ha! I came to this after hearing several other recordings and found it a better performance so stayed with it. The sound quality isn't too bad and I'd listened to a few of his Delius recordings so I had probably got used to it!



    Edit - In fact, I think I'll play his version of Bantock's Fifine right now.

    My listening for today was a CD of works by 20th century English composer Julius Harrison, and Schubert's Moment Musicaux.
