    Takes a while to download? Shucks, just put on the complete Ring cycle, and you won't even notice the time pass. And metadata? We don't need no stinkin' metadata!

    I'm listening to Rattle's version of Szymanowski's Stabat Mater. I was right; it isn't as special as the Marco Polo recording.

    An amazing Tosca ... Act 3 is just starting but I'll definitely stay with it to the end.

    A bit like Xenakis, in the weird hole between electronic music and avant-garde classical.

    Really entertaining, though.

    e) as someone who's not a huge "soundscapes" fan (especially those of the "bleeps" variety versus ambient, which I do like) I definitely prefered the second side, as most people I've seen seem to. The introduction of a heavy, relentless bass beat that synthesizers play against in different rhythms and timbres - that was as vicariously thrilling for me as listening to Chuck Berry recording "Maybellene". Something big was about to happen, though it would take a decade or so to get there.

    That's an interesting one! IIRC it was performed much more often back when people thought it was possibly one of the purported "missing" Schubert symphonies, and it really does sound fabulous orchestrated.

    Indeed, and yes it does! The history of this work is pretty interesting.
