  1. Non-Classical Music
    I've been a Jazz fan for awhile but it's always taken a back seat to Classical. However, lately I've been enamored with Sharrock's album 'Ask the Ages', which has recently been remastered and put back in print by Bill Laswell. Anyway, the said album is a visceral masterpiece that rocks like no...

    I am quite greenish :tiphat: but only when it doesn't lessen my enjoyment of life :o I do think about these things: how to lessen useless waste of resources, how cities could be better (see the recent urban development thread), how space can be shared with other species so that all can survive...

    Those of you who are devout classical music collectors will no doubt know about the Berkshire Record Outlet, which for many years now has offered some great deals on thousands of CDs and LPs. For some months the Outlet has been unavailable for selling due to warehouse relocation. Apparently...

    Hello everyone! I'm afraid I haven't been on recently because of a combination of exams, performances, a holiday and a bad internet connection. But I should be back now, hopefully. Until the next set of exams/performances/internet failures. So, what has happened in my absence? Anything exciting?
  5. Opera
    I heard her last night in Seattle and to me she is the real thing! She harkens back to the golden age of singing in my youth back in the 60's.

    I've recently begun to explore some composers mentioned by some of the TC members ( George Crumb, Bohuslav Martinu, Karlheinz Stockhausen to name a few) some of these composers I wonder if you had an immediate liking for or if they presented a challenge for you but you just had to keep coming...
  8. Non-Classical Music
    This saddens me greatly. I remember seeing him for the first time back in late 1968 and got his autograph. We go back a long way. His soulful voice will forever be missed. http://www.cnn.com/2015/04/14/entertainment/percy-sledge-dies-feat/
  9. Non-Classical Music
    My most favorite rendition of "Danny Boy" I've heard and probably the most underrated musician. I bought this album probably mid 60's and decided I needed two just in case. I'm glad I did save one back. My sister was enthralled by his music and I made her a cassette of the album. The audio of...

    "Les Patineurs" was a very early recording my parents gave me one Christmas when I was maybe 5. What a beautiful melody! It still fills me with delight. A couple of years later at a carnival, this clown had a popcorn maker/barrel organ that played it which intrigued the hell out of me and I...

    One of those stars who was popular back in the 1990s then left to care for her mother and family and now is coming back. Any other fans?
  13. Non-Classical Music
    Not only one of the most beautiful but one of the most talented women in pop music. The Hounds of Love is a towering masterpiece which I never tire of. Continue to enjoy all her music just as much now as I did back in the day. 50 Words for Snow shows she hasn't lost her abilities in the...
  14. Solved Cases (archive)
    Back in the '60s, the was a syndicated hour-long classical radio show called "The World of Adventure in Music." It was hosted by a Frank Waldecker, and sponsored by TWA (Trans World Airlines). I listened to it on WCRB, Boston's commercial classical station, but I'm sure it appeared all over...

    I fell a couple of days after thanksgiving and have finally gotten most of my motion back in my hand, I still can't lift very big things without pain, though it is less. I started with the Hannon exercises to get my left hand back up to where my right still is, my hand is still swollen a bit in...

    Have any of you violinists on TC ever been to a violin-playing summer school or weekend course etc? What was it like? Was it difficult to settle in? Did you enjoy meeting the others - or did you feel trapped? Did you come back with your playing improved? Would you do it again? It would be...

    I really have enjoyed Alfred Brendel's performances when I was younger as a kid. I heard his piano sonatas on cassette tapes way back in the day. I hope as I am returning back to classical music collecting that I can procure some more of his recordings. What do peeps here think of him?
