    Prompted by a comment on a thread (elsewhere on the Web): Dvorak symphonies, a complete set ! - Do you like watching paint dry? I only really know the late symphonies of both (8 & 9 and 7-9) respectively. And how wonderful they are. Don't really know the rest, though quite taken with Schubert 3...
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    For me, there is no music from early baroque that I can like or adore. I am looking for the musics of early baroque but I couldn't like any music so far. It was like there was no good job before Bach and Vivaldi. If there are musics that you adore very much, you can share it and I will check...
  5. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    "Early" and "late" refer here more to styles than chronology. For the purposes of this poll Beethoven will be counted as an early romantic, and on the other hand chronologically middle but stylistically progressive composers will counted as "late". For the poll averse: if you really need to say...

    Early to bed, early to rise, Makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise... But it doesn't do much for me. Since I retired, I find it very hard not to spend hours slobbing round in my dressing gown instead of doing anything purposeful: I find myself sitting here posting, or reading the paper, or...
  7. Opera
    If you were one of the unlucky ones who saw Jessye Norman late in her career on PBS opening Seattle's new Benaroya Hall you were subjected to a mezzo who completely and utterly failed to hit any of the high notes. Norman achieved her greatest fame after she lost 100 pounds and looked better on...

    Hello there, this is my first posting in this forum, so I hope you forgive me if this has been asked or done before. I have quite a large collection of cds and lps, live recordings from the radio, thematical radio programs and so on, and being a biologist I like to put everything in neat boxes...

  13. Orchestral Music
    Over the years that I have been listening to classical music, it has been fascinating to encounter the occasional resurrection of an early version of a work which the composer withdrew and replaced. Two such examples are the 1913 version of Vaughan Williams London Symphony and the 4 movement...
  14. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I am seeing a CD claiming to have some performances from the late 1940s taken from 78 rpm records: Track Listings 1. Norma: Aria E Cabaleta Di Norma Dall'Atto I: 'Casta Diva...Ah! Bello A Me Ritorna' 2. I Puritani: Aria E Cabaleta Di Elvira Dall'Atto II: 'O Rendetemi La Speme...Qui La...
  15. Non-Classical Music
    Da Brudders. The pride of Forest Hills, Queens. All four original members sadly gone. They may have run out of ideas long before they ran out of steam, but the early material still stands up after all these years. Any fans on TC?
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    Not one for the night owls, but rather do have a starting point for listening to music e.g. 1700 or do you listen to music of any period? So, how early do you listen?

    I have 3 CDs of La Sonnambula and one DVD with the following Aminas: Luba Orgonasova Mariella Devia Maria Callas (1957 Live) Eva Mei on DVD (wish this were on a CD also) So I am looking at the Sutherland Pavarotti La Sonnambula and like it a lot, but people are saying Sutherland sings better...
  18. Solo & Chamber Music
    I have been exploring String Quartets over various musical time periods and still have not settled on a time period I prefer. I have also noticed that the differences are often more subtle than in other types of classical music. It also seems that typical time markers (rhythm, dissonance...
