    Default Hello!

    Nice to be here. Look up what a shirime is if you don't know it already. It's my favourite mythical creature. I aspire to be one, one day. I hope that day isn't too far off. When I do become one, I will let you know, for sure. It will be incredibly exciting for me. I also like music. I listen to a lot of it. I want to post about music I like on this forum. I want to read about music other people like on this forum as well. I often like to listen to things I haven't heard before. There is so much music out there and life is short. I am not a fan of Christian Thielemann. I think his performances are, on the whole, less interesting than other ones. I enjoy socks with interesting colours and patterns. One time I ate a whole piece of paper in an exam in school. I don't store my belly button fluff in a jar, although I did think about that today.

    Welcome to Talk Classical, odd sacred creature. This intro is amazing, and don't take those gifs too seriously please. One does not read these things in Talk Classical often...

    I'm laughing really hard.

    How do you listen to music? Stream or CD? And who are your favourite composers?

    Download, CD, stream, radio. Radio is amazing. Free music, interesting music where I don't have to go through the trouble to actually choose something. I ripped a heap of CDs to my computer where I listen now. Lately I've been enjoying Wagner, Chris Dench and Lachenmann. I have been known to indulge in Mitterer, Mindry, Neuwirth and Boulez.

    I'm surfin through the entire Operatic discography. I've finished listening to recordings by Richard Wagner and I'm immersed in French Opera, in love with Gounod's Faust.

    I mainly listen to Romantic composers in the Symphony and Operatic world. I own lots of Bruckner CD recordings (my favourite composer) and a handful of Mahler symphonies. I'm finishing my Beethoven challenges without much enthusiasm.

    Oh, and my most hyped Bruckner cycle is the one conducted by Christian Thielemann with the Staatskapelle Dresden...

    You know... you can edit posts...?

    Oh, it's Shirime. I thought you were referring to the kid from Peanuts. Sorry.

    From the fact that you have recently listened to Mozart K355, I assume you are an immigrant from GMG.

    Hello, yes as it happens this is correct although I would prefer not to use the term 'immigrant.' I have not left GMG! (You probably can work out who I am from my musical interests, and later when I get my cat avatar back)

    I think I can make a good guess.

    My favourite Bruckner recordings are by Jochum and Young. I love Wagner and I would he curious to hear your thoughts on each one. Lately I've been interested in all the terrific productions happening around Europe in recent years (and particularly at Bayreuth); some of the stage directors have really great interpretations.

    My collection (minus the Wand Lübeck recordings).

    I've written plenty of posts about Wagner recordings. You can find them in Opera on CD and DVD threads under the name: Wagner opera on disc...

    I don't usually like the new Bayreuth productions, but I'm really fond of the Rat Lohengrin and the Oriental Parsifal.

    VERY nice! I like these DG Jochums, but I think the ones released on EMI are even better.

    My girlfriend loves the Rat Lohengrin, and so do I. Aside from the fact that Klaus Florian Vogt is perfect for the title role, its one hell of a cute production, exactly the kind of cuteness that opera needs.



    Wow, this is so cute I could cry
