    Okay folks, I wont lie, swear to, I absolutly love NONSUCH offerings so far, there LP's are said by some I know to be so-so =medium, I think it's wrongful to say that, since if you put some treble there fine-sounding, I have at least 10 NONSUCH they never disappointed me, In ancient lore...

    Hildegard Von Bingen was a Saint, anymore Saint in ancient lore , canonized. Or mister perfect, he did not offend, commit crime, steal,, or whatever, he was christic in a way he or she was born a clean slate, died a clean slate and everyone cry when they were dead. Think of people whom, sibling...

  6. Today's Composers
    Hello friends! I wanted to share a piece for those that love film music fused with typical orchestral colors and want to go on an adventure! All I can say is and since I'm sort of not good with self promoting here (or words to say to make you all listen to it LOL) if you guys liked it, I...

    Movie recommendation thread Hello there! I thought maybe this thread could become the official movie recommendation thread of TC. Everybody could help anyone, and we would all benefit from that. Now let's begin! It has occurred to me that here might be the perfect place to ask for a...

    Are there any that not only have good music, but good choreography and production values, on blu ray? Bonus points if the music is dark and/or atonal, though I'm interested in classics as well if there's anything visually stunning.
  9. Solo & Chamber Music
    So I'm thinking about getting a nice set with the 4 concertos for piano. Any suggestions?? I have seen a couple of editions with Ashkenazy playing the piano. Are they any good?
  10. Today's Composers
    So, I have a rough draft performance of this piece ready to share complete with kitchen sounds. Over the course of this week, I will have a better one, but this should give you a good idea of what kind of a piece it is. It's a bit of an odd one:
  11. Today's Composers
    Hello, I have recently written a one movement string quartet that I am pretty satisfied with. Are there some good competitions right now? I want to submit this piece. Thank you

  13. Strings
    So I've played guitar since I was very young, but in the last year or so I've become very interested in classical music. Guitar is sorely underrepresented in classical music. Mainly there's just obscure pieces and transcriptions for guitar. In the past, I've been able to pick up violins that...

    This goes back to the "Classical music is so gay" thread. I think that there is a common perception that not only CM, but most High Art is effeminate or elitist. And I think many Americans have no idea how often they are exposed to art, nor, in some cases, how fortunate they are. Yes, the...
  15. Opera
    What opera would you most like to see in a good production with good singers, but don't think you will? Mine would be Norma. I just don't think we have a soprano who can do te role justice like Callas did. Truly great Normas are rare.

    Hi, my mother has this on an EP, scratched and all, and I wonder if anyone has a good digital copy of this. Willing to pay for it. Thanks, Daan

  18. Classical Music Discussion
    My question is really about Shostakovich's 2d and 3d symphonies, but I like the alliteration in the title :devil:. I'm a big dsch fan, but I'm familiar with only a few of his symphonies. They vary in accessibility and, I'm sure, in quality. The standard line on his 2d and 3d symphonies are...
  19. Recorded Music and Publications
    I like picking and choosing particular composers and performers as much as the next guy. But, I also appreciate a good bargain, and some of these Complete composer, conductor, and record label box sets look too good to pass up for the price. So far, all I've gotten is Vol 1 of the Mercury...
