  4. Identifying Classical Music
    I recently attended a string camp in which the faculty played the most beautiful song I have ever heard. It was so romantic, so lovely. The only part of the title of the song I remember is, "Variations on an English _____". I faintly remember the last word started with "P", although I may be...

    Hey. So I'm loving that rather dark/depressive mood of Requiems, but I was curious if anyone knows of any in English. I search on Google and all the results are about English translations of the text (which I've already looked at). So does anyone know of any? Thanks in advance.

    Hello, I am looking for a good website that streams operas with English subtitles. What is the best site? Is there a free one? Many thanks
  8. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I know many people aren't a fan of translated operas, and it wouldn't be my primary method either. But as a side niche it interests me a bit. So what versions of these (or other English translated) operas do you find to be of reasonably good quality? And if you can't actually understand the...

    Links of FULL operas with ENGLISH subtitles. Hello, I would like to create a single thread in order to bring some convenience to those looking for online links to operas but are needing English subtitles. I know I would appreciate it :) Hopes for posts: 1. Full performance or clear links to...
  10. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Thought it might be nice to list them here for English speakers like me. :) I'll start with the Boulez/Chereau Ring and the Jurowski/Glyndebourne Meistersinger. What other youtube operas have English subtitles? :tiphat:
  11. Opera
    Greetings, Could you tell me which venues in Europe will perform Tristan und Isolde during season 2015/2016? And if they have English supertitles? Thank you very much. Cheers
  12. Opera
    Well I know I'm be a little specific and picky here, but I'm curious if anyone knows of any Operas from the Classical Era that were originally created with English libretto. I know this is a difficult time frame to find such a thing, but I'd like to try. The Classical Era is my favorite period...

    This is a question that comes up from time to time: http://www.talkclassical.com/805-under-rated-english-composers.html 2006 http://www.talkclassical.com/5489-best-english-composer.html 2009 http://www.talkclassical.com/21080-your-ten-favorite-british.html 2012 But I think it's worth...

    William Shakespeare is widely acknowledged as the greatest writer in the English language. So the only fitting way to truly honour his legacy is a truly English endeavour: a good old quiz. How well do you know your William? Are you brainy about the Bard? Take the quiz and find out.

    The link below is an interview that Daniel Barenboim gave on Elgar. Barenboim says that he gets mad at people calling Elgar "that English composer". This could be due to his music being a key part of the Last Night of the Proms. However I agree that his works should be put into the wider rep...

    Henry Purcell was one of the greatest English Baroque composers before Handel. He wrote beautiful Baroque music that was characteristically English. No other English-born composer came near his stature until perhaps at best, Edward Elgar. (Handel was born in Germany.) What do you think of this...
  17. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I am looking for a great opera box set of Britten. I don't care much if they cover all operas or not, but English libretto is the top priority (I am not a native English speaker, so most of the time I can't understand anything without following the libretto :p ) TC members, do you recommend any...
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    There seems to me to be a correlation between the music of a composer and the style of architecture common in their lifetime. France, Spain and indeed much of Europe bar the UK is built in what I like to refer to as an antiquated style. Some people call this the rustic charm of paint, plaster...
