  1. Orchestral Music
    I know this poll has been done before, but it simply gave a listing of each symphony, with no other choices. I'm not the only one I know who finds all 4 to be equally amazing, and I know (sad to say) that there are some who don't like the Brahms symphonies, or Brahms in general. But this is a...
  2. Orchestral Music
    As in the title. My top 30 favorite piano concertos from 19th century are: (in chronological order) 1. Lessel, Franciszek - Piano Concerto in C major, Op. 14 (1801) 2. Hummel, Johann Nepomuk - Piano Concerto No. 4 in E major, Op. 110 (1814) 3. Hummel, Johann Nepomuk - Piano Concerto No. 1 in G...
  3. Opera
    Dream casts Do you ever imagine when listening to records, "if only you could join those recordings together it would be brilliant"? I think the most tantalising examples are when recordings were made within a few years and combined they'd be terrific. For instance, I wish that the Aida...
  4. Solo & Chamber Music
    Which are your favorites? These works certainly need the proper treatment.
  5. Solo & Chamber Music
    Just thinking about Bach's 2 book masterpiece. As much as I love them, I'm still not familiar with the set enough to have many specific preludes and fugues to stand out as "favorites". I'm still at a point where, excluding maybe a small handful of sets, I can't easily distinguish the works apart...
  6. Opera
    Hi My name is Gaby and I am new here in the forum and Opera is one of my passions! I just recently heard the very sad news that the wonderful Jon Vickers passed away at age 88. He was an excellent Tenor and in my opinion, one of the greatest as Otello, along with Placido Domingo. He was also...

  11. Non-Classical Music
    Lately I have gone back to my Lisa Gerrard discography and as I listen I start to calm down. :cool: I have listened to just about every thing she has done. She is definitely one of my favorites that is not necessarily classical. Does anyone else like her music?

    Haha, I know I'm being a little specific here, especially due to a shorter number of minor-key pieces in this era, but what are some of your favorite Minor-Key Concertos from the Classical Period. This is my favorite era of music, and I'm particularly fond of minor-key pieces, so what are some...

    What are the best recordings of Shostakovich symphonies? The most famous? The most popular? The "greatest?" Or, more simply, which are your favorites?
  14. Classical Music Discussion
    In the pop music industry there is the "Top 40", which represents the 40 songs that get the most air time, so I thought, in classical music, for you personally, which 40 pieces of music have YOU listened to the most? (most "ear-time" :))
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Well I know he didn't quite excel as much in this genre as he did with Symphonies and String Quartets, but I still find them enjoyable. Anyways, I think it's safe to say that Haydn's most famous concertos are his two Cello concertos, Trumpet Concerto, and 11th Keyboard Concerto. But other than...
  16. Non-Classical Music
    One of my favorites :)
  17. Opera
    I have many Wagner recordings, but am a bit light on the great mono historical recordings. Which are the ones I need to get? Your favorites? thanks

(3 for each) 3. From a compositional standpoint, such as theory-wise, etc..., what do you feel are...
  19. Orchestral Music
    I personally love Clarinet Concertos, and have recently done a bit of searching to find some quite charming works that don't get the same recognition as others. So I think we can all agree that perhaps the most popular, or at least most performed, concertos nowadays are the ones by Mozart...
  20. Non-Classical Music
    imo, symphonic metal is the only electric guitar-heavy musical genre which successfully manages to sound elegant and melodious (even soothing at times, which is extremely unusual among metal pieces in general). some of my favorites are: PS: no, not all symphonic metal bands have female...
