    aka mstar is really kinda bored and stalling just a teensy bit. Taking a look at this, I'm wondering whether we'll ever come across "reverse evolution" somehow or another... Article summary? What do you think? Will you join the Tiger-Man? Will you keep procrastinating in leagues with mstar...
  2. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Since we don't have enough stupid polls, and we have not approached Mozart in a poll in this manner yet, so...
  3. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Have you ever searched for an opera on Amazon, only to be flabbergasted by the amount of options available to you? What makes my choice harder is that the obvious "great voices" (Pavarotti, Domingo, Vickers, Gedda, Bjorling etc) are simply not present on Blu-Ray and my limited operatic culture...
  4. Ballet
    If you would have to choose a ballet by bartok which one would you discarded... You know what i can choose between these two masterwork. Yes the miraculeous mandarin is a force majeure to be reckon whit, but the wooden prince is wagnerian in way or remind me of Wagner chromatism. The story...
  5. Opera
    I noticed while searching youtube that the modern performances always, or almost always, do not take the high note. What's up with that? Can't sing it or choose not too. I like it :)

    Three great 20th century composers, but you're allowed only one album for each of them. So which three albums do you choose? No box sets -- that's cheating!

    During my time off, I managed to work on uploading all of my classical and non-classical music into Google Music. Unlike Spotify this is incredible because I don't have to pay to play my songs from the cloud archive and I can choose any song both via TV/Chromecast and mobile phone. :) Bravo...

    Here are the guidelines, if you could pick one composer to have lived long enough to compose one more composition: 1. Who would it be? 2. What specific type of composition would it be (Symphony, Piano Sonata, Violin Partita, etc...)? 3. And would it be in a minor or major key? So, for example...
  11. Recorded Music and Publications
    I have 2 cycles, Abbado/BPO and Haitink/RCO, and I'm trying to buy another one because I love the pieces so much. I have come down to Chailly and Dohnanyi/Cleveland. I've heard the former and I know I love it; the later has terrific reviews but I can't find sample so I don't know if I will like...
  12. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Which recordings of his would you take to that desert island? TRY to choose one for each opera. :) The Ring cycle can count as 1 if you wish or you can choose separates. :tiphat:

    I personally find it hard to choose between the last and the second last option. edit: argh, forgot to make this poll public.
  14. Classical Music Discussion
    Ancient Greeks believed, that music can cultivate one's character and make him a better person, and ancient Chinese held a similar view, I think. Do you feel that listening to classical music makes you more moral? If so, which composers have positive "ethical" influence on you? If I had to...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    By just listening to a piece, is it possible to distinguish between 4/4 time and 4/8 time (or 3/4 and 3/8)? If so, how? If not, what factors would determine which time signature a composer would choose?
  16. Opera
    Simple poll. Choose one. Which do you like prefer? And why? (Story about stolen rings and returning it.)

    In parallel with 'another silly poll', detailing some luscious ladies to choose if you're marooned on a desert island, I'd like to post a thread asking which *men* you'd choose, whether you're a woman who wants companionship of the opposite sex, or a man who thinks it would be good to have some...
