  1. Orchestral Music
    This was the most boring and unnecessary Challenge I've done in Talk Classical. There was no sense of discovery as in the Bruckner and Mahler challenges. All my preconceptions of Karajan came true and then I had to add the famous Kempe recordings. Then we add some Reiner and we complete the...

This is really just for fun and to get to know you and your musical tastes. I hope you enjoy it! Although I anticipate the use of primarily classical music, feel free to use...
  7. Today's Composers
    Hi Everyone, I wonder if I could present some of you with a challenge. I am terrible at mapping out the time signature structure of my own pieces. I composed a short lullaby a few years ago when my niece was born. I want to present the written music as a gift, but have no confidence in my...
