    After 2 covid19 years at last I had the opportunity to attend the live concert of our local (national) chamber symphony orchestra last nigh with the guest piano musician. Program featured a bit from contemporary music, Haydn symphony and Beethoven piano concerto. And I didn't like it, despite...

    Hi, my friend and I are attending for the first time a Classical Music concert in a theatre. How should we behave, what could possibly go wrong if we sit on a balcony? Would Daniel Barenboim yell at us for taking pictures at the end? How loud can a mobile phone be if it sounds from the gods...

    This answer in the Karajan.... poll thread led me to open this new thread. I do think that Karajan recordings have a lot of mastering on them and sometimes it sounds unnatural, but if he could be different on Live Concerts, I wonder... Do some of you praise Live recordings over Studio versions...

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2013-01-03/nazi-past-female-phobia-afflict-vienna-philharmonic It's billed as the biggest classical-music concert of the calendar, which starts the New Year with two hours of sweet, innocent waltzes. And this year especially, the orchestra at the heart of...

    I guess this became the fashion after 9/11 in the US. I have never heard any Canadian orchestra do it. Glens Falls plays it at the start of the season and only then. What do you think about that practice? Is it a distraction? Should they do it or not? I just read that the Fort Worth Symphony...

    Starting off a new thread to cover the RLPO 2015-16 concert season, launched last night in style by Vasily Petreno in his usual good humour. A very popular programme, featuring the Rachmaninov Second Piano concerto but was given an immaculate performance by Ji Liu, who I think quite wisely did...

    I got myself a month's subscription to the Digital Concert Hall and so far've heard one concert and was very pleased. I was wondering from other subscribers: What's your favorite concert from the archives? Now it is very large, so I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't a single common submission.

    Say you have tickets for a full season of piano concerts at you local auditorium. Imagine that for every concert the pianists play the same pieces, on the same piano, tuned the exact same way and placed at the same position on the stage. Furthermore the public that attends the concert is always...

    Hi all, I recently went with my brother to a Marilyn Manson concert in Sydney, and before Manson appeared onstage, a piece of striking classical music was played to build excitement. The best I can provide is an iPhone video that somebody else took from a show in Milwaukee. It's tough to make...

    Which metaphor works? For me, the orchestral (specifically) concert experience should be like a stroll through the Art Institute of Chicago (or somewhere similar). In this wing, we have the French Impressionists, and in that wing, Modernist painters beginning with Gauguin and Picasso. Over...

    Of all the groups I remember while growing up in the mid-late '50's, the Everly Brothers stand out. I wore out a lot of 45's and LP's of them from 1959, when I turned a teenager, till I got out of high school. Many of their songs still bring back precious memories, like "Like Strangers", "Let it...
