    I just wrote a rather negative comment about Lang Lang on my blog, essentially saying that I never really found a recording by this pianist I liked. http://musicophilesblog.com/2015/11/08/hype-vs-hype-lang-lang-vs-benjamin-grosvenor/ Did I miss anything?

    Hello, I want to know the name of this classical piece, I've heard it before and I know it's well known. It's the melody found in this youtube video starting at 0:41 seconds.

    A thread looking at particular questions concerning composers active in the first 3rd or even half of the 20th century. I'm interested in those who managed to either cling to an idiom little removed from late romanticism(in the harmonic sense, anyway), or who found a comfortable spot just...

This is a discussion thread for music that you've found 'just right', as opposed to similar music that it 'too whatever'. It's only about personal taste - your...

    Please help me? :) What I need is basically a piece energetic enough to help me stay awake while I'm trying to study. I've looked into Palestrina and Haendel, and while I found them very beautiful and intense, I don't think that's what I need here. Thanks in advance! :tiphat:

    This is no query, just a follow up to my original post, 'Magnificat - Query' (Feb-March 2015), whose thread has now been archived. I finally found out information on the recording that I've got of this G. Gabrieli piece. It's in this album: http://www.evl.ch/pratique/1972-gabrieli/ Cheers!

    After I consolidated all of my 800+ cd's last year, I misplaced one of my favorites: "Chants Mystique: Hidden Treasures of a Living Tradition." Yesterday, I found the cd in a mislabeled spot. Since then, I have tremendously enjoyed hearing those incantatory cantor/chorus chants once...

    I am hoping to find the name of this short piece of music. It is probably Russian, but I can't say for sure. (It was found in the context of a documentary about Vladimir Putin, which by the way, I recommend watching.) In case this attachment doesn't work, the music can be found in the...

    Hi Everyone, Here are four nocturnes on Y.T. by Tellefsen. This is great music in my opinion - and every bit as wonderful as the nocturnes by Chopin and John Field. The pianist, Einar Steen-Nøkleberg, seems to be a tremendous interpreter of them. I first found out about Einar...

    I am enjoying exploring this genre of late, coming to it via some of Lindsey Stirking's music. I enjoy it if it's of good quality. However I'm finding so far that there is a lot of dreck to be found. Any recommendations?
  14. Non-Classical Music
    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...

    Recently I started putting what I think is a nice little CD collection together. This week I've found myself with some money to spend and bought this discs. Wanted to know your opinions on this week's purchases. The Rattle set on Stravinsky is something I've been dying to get and I found it for...
