  1. Opera
    We are studying at Copenhagen Business Academy and we are researching the Opera Cinema concept. We would love to know about your experience whether or not you have ever actually seen it. We have a few questions we would like answered and you are free to elaborate as much or as little as you...
  2. Recorded Music and Publications
    I've read a lot online about this OIBP release being inferior to the original pressing. Does anyone have any experience of this they could share?
  3. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    By "get" I mean to understand and or to enjoy listening to the piece. How hard do you try to "get it"? Whether a Bach piece or a Cage piece, whether Mozart or Mördorj. This is very subjective. There is no right nor wrong. There is only open discussion (sharing) of your own experience. It is...
  4. Keyboard Instruments
    Imho, opening the following link will let one experience a tasteful interpretation of the "Goldberg""
  5. Classical Music Discussion
    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...

    Here we have the 5 highest scoring composers of the previous poll. You can vote based on your personal experience, what you've heard about them, what looks most interesting to you, etc, whatever. meh
  7. Opera
    There doesn't seem to be a shortage of tenor or baritone roles. Basses don't seem to get such interesting parts in my (extremely) limited experience of opera. Please, show me how wrong I am.
  8. Classical Music Discussion
    Listening to music is like reading, and that's why it's a dying art. Listening to music demands attention, involvement, imagination, and introspection, just like reading. To watch a show on HDTV, a mainly visual experience, all you have to do is sit there and watch. Every blade of grass is...
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    I have had this experience a few times, where I will accidentally fall asleep while listening to music. I will sleep like normal and dream but the music will be present while I am dreaming, seeming to somehow influence the dream. This happened just a few nights ago as I was listening to...
  10. Opera
    I loaned out the DECCA DVD 1996 Houston Symphony with Bartoli, Dara, Gimenez, Corbelli and Pertusi over the weekend. This was my first Rossini opera to be viewed. The DVD did not come with a libretto, only a synopsis of the acts. The subtitles were available in English. I was impressed with...
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    I was watching this wonderful short portrait of the composer and current musical director of Ensemble InterContemporain Matthias Pintscher. At about 14:30 in the video he speaks of a fascinating experience he had when meeting a 17/18 year old African boy who was having a first experience with...
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    As I continue into TC here, I am inspired to look at some very old school recordings. Like turn of the last century old from the late 1900's and early 2000's. So I ended up finding a really good website for these recordings at http://www.marstonrecords.com/ Do does anyone have experience with...
  13. Classical Music Discussion
    Please list some of your types of musical experience with some examples of the pieces that evoke that experience for you. Of course, there are as many musical experiences as there are human emotions, but that is not quite what I mean: see my examples below.... The "Contrapuntal brain overload...
  14. Classical Music Discussion
    As lovers of music, we often find ourselves trying to enhance everything with it. Movies, games, even museums incorporate rhythmic sounds to strengthen the mood of a piece, or even as the main device to define the mood. It isn't just up to the artists what we apply our music to, however. We...
