  5. Classical Music Discussion
    I just saw on another forum that the composer has posted the full recording of Yellowstone for Violin and Orchestra on Youtube. This concerto was a huge hit on our Classic99 station here in St. Louis. It made the listener Top 40 for number of years. I can't ever remember a living composer in...
  6. Composer Guestbooks
    No Copland thread till now?! I just came here to read the thread never expecting that might not find it! Anyway, he could be described as the founder of "the American Sound". So how about starting this thread with discussing your favorite recordings of Rodeo, Billy the Kid, and the Third Symphony?
  7. Woodwind and Brass
    Who made the Standard American trumpet, the engraving clearly says "Standard American" surrounded by a floral design engraving, which is different than the "American Standard" by King. If it's just a variation of the wording by King, OK, but I would like to know? I forgot to ask, if anyone...

    David Lang is one of the most highly-esteemed and performed American composers writing today. His works have been performed around the world and in most of the great concert halls. Lang won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music for the little match girl passion, based on a fable by Hans Christian...
  9. Opera
    French opera often seems to be everybody's unwanted stepchild here... well, perhaps not as bad as Russian, English, and American Opera (American what!? :eek:). Thus, let's put the question to you: What are your favorite 5 French operas/operettas? (Operas/operettas written originally in French...

    I'd like to get into American Classical music but I don't know where to start. I guess we can include Latin America too. Why not? I mostly just like orchestral music: symphonies and concertos. Any suggestions? Thanks.
  11. Non-Classical Music
    Hello everyone. I'm curious to know which of the following composers is your favorite composer/lyricist of the Great American Songbook. I haven't included them all but just 5 of the biggest figures I'm interested in. **Note: I know I forgot the Gershwins in the poll so just vote with your text...
  12. Solo & Chamber Music
    I've listened to Beethoven's late quartets hundreds of times to the extent that I can whistle them over breakfast, and they're among my favourite pieces, but I can't understand why they are considered in particular to be among the greatest compositions of all time. They're obviously masterpieces...
  13. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    I have listed quite a few well recognized, frequently performed and studied 20th century American composers, who I think will survive into being classical composer status, owing to their success and posterity. Sure, you may not agree, but in any case, who do you think was/is the greatest 20th C...

    I don't usually have time to listen to podcasts but my wife recommended to me a podcast called Serial which is off An American Life series. I look forward listening to it. Any favorite podcasts that peeps here enjoy?
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Any interest in having a top 100 American classical works thread along the lines of Turnabout Vox's String Quartet 100+ thread? I thought I might organise a similar undertaking and that a thread based on nationality rather than genre might be entertaining - although restricting it to...
  16. Non-Classical Music
    Hello everyone, I am a very serious classical musician but one non-classical thing that I enjoy is watching the TV show American Idol. I do not enjoy pop and rock music, but I like the show for the variety of musicianship it offers, and I am always intrigued by what the judges have to say...
