    Default The Monthly Explorer

    This is a variation on something I ran a few years ago.

    I'd like to see whether we can have a monthly get together at TC to explore say 4-6 classical music works that are probably new to many of us (from any period, so medieval to contemporary).

    The idea is that 4-6 people would nominate one work each of limited runtime (say max 20 minutes), that they like very much, and that they think many people here would not have heard yet. The nominated works should be available on YouTube so everyone can access them. These 4-6 people make a commitment to listen to all nominated works at least once in that month (so max 2 hours), and write a short review, stating at least whether the work was new to them and whether they liked it or not (more than that is welcome). Of course, everyone else can chip in and listen to any of the nominated works and review them as outlined above.

    Would there be interest in this? If so, would you like to be one of the nominators (and reviewers) for the month October? No need to nominate works yet (in fact, I may ask you to do that via PM).

    I would love to participate! I do remember taking part in threads like this run by Art Rock a couple years ago and greatly enjoying them.

    I have no knowledge of music theory, and so can only express subjective opinions. So I would not be one of the Six but I might follow along as a layperson.

    Subjective opinions are perfectly fine with me, so feel free to be one of the nominators.

    Theoretically this sounds interesting, although I'm often more of the "chip in" type.

    We'll do this with five unless the others who posted change their mind, or new players pop up (I'm willing to give up my spot):

    1846
    Allegro con Brio [submission received]
    Art Rock
    San Antone
    SuperTonic [submission received]

    Those listed above can already submit their work of choice by PM (max 20 minutes duration). Please include a YouTube link.
