    I was about to post on ArtMusic's Christmas Shopper thread when I realised that to explain why I don't needed some history. Then I thought it would be lovely to hear what your Christmas used to be like when you were a child, and what it is like now. And how do they compare, in your estimation...
  2. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    Hi All! So sorry if this has been posted. Did a search and couldn't find anything. Does anyone know if we are ever going to see the final two installments of Gergiev's Ring? I'm dying to hear Stemme's Siegfried and Gotterdammerung. I ripped the Milan Ring to CD so I could hear her Siegfried...
  3. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hi all just had to share - no one else to tell as friends and family not into it.... I have just got home from my first experience of live chamber music and I am buzzing..... I was at the front - 2 metres away at the same level, small venue with fabulous acoustics. Great ensemble (i think) and...
  4. Non-Classical Music
    I am not sure if this is the right place to put this thread, I feel it could go under either classical music or non classical music. In light of what I have just stated, I am wondering how the people of this forums feel about instrumental mash ups between more contemporary music and classical...

    Do you hear a climax in this ?

    Yogi Berra has died at 90. He had some great comments on music. On jazz: "90% of all Jazz is half improvisation. The other half is the part people play while others are playing something they never played with anyone who played that part. So if you play the wrong part, its right. If you play...
  7. Classical Music Discussion
    Bear with me here because I'm not so well versed in the finer points of various periods of music. or to be more specific, I have a hard time putting words to what I hear. Anyway, I've heard a few pieces from J.C. Bach on the radio and get the impression that some of his work "bridges" periods...
  8. Non-Classical Music
    This could just as well go on one of the Classical forums except... I blame this on the radio but there seems to be an increasing preponderance of "Smooth" FM stations that take favourite pieces and repeat them over and over again. It's not the artists fault but I find I can only hear simple...

  10. Today's Composers
    ;) I don't claim it to be my best, but I had fun with this one. Listen to it and you'll hear why. :tiphat:
  11. Solo & Chamber Music
    So far I have tried Arrau, Uchida, and Brendel. I still feel like something important is missing. What are your favorites? Would love to hear more recommendations.
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    Sometimes I wonder, do I like classical music because I like it, or because it is seen as more sophisticated to appreciate classical music, as opposed to other genres? Right now I'm listening to this, And I really like the piano, before I was listening to this, By choice, not because...
  13. Hi-Fi
    The Ear Wars rage on! Please add your input to this question: Can you hear the difference between lossless music files (CDs, FLAC, etc.) and compressed files (such as 256K MP3s)? Please base your response on your ears and your listening equipment.

    Hi, I've been on here for 30 minutes and have learned so much. I would greatly appreciate help in identifying this. I hear it every day and it is driving me nuts just being able to hear only 6 seconds of it. I want more! LOL It plays in the first 6 seconds 0:01 - 0:06 Here is the link: At...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    You hear a lot about Bruckner's Symphonies 7, 8 & the unfinished 9th as they are generally regarded, in their different ways, as his greatest achievements in the form... and rightly so I might add. But what about 1 - 6? I don't hear a whole lot about any of these. #6 a little bit more so than...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    I am trying to determine what is the best recording ever made of : 1- Requiem k626 (personally I like very much Karl Bohm with Wiener Symphoniker) 2- Goldberg Variations bwv 988 (to hear with earphone Glenn Gould moaning tunelessly bothers me, instead I prefer Jeremy Denk´s rendition ) 3-...
  17. Solo & Chamber Music
    Had the opportunity and good fortune to see these guys live. They opened for Renaissance. Great musicians, writers and singers. Don't know why the drummer (John Wethers) insists on wearing an Oakland A's uniform onstage. He did when I saw them as well. To hear this playing at 120 dB right...
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    I guess it's difficult to explain what I mean. It's something that I hear in the music of Webern or in a piece like the beautiful Harp sonata of Hindemith, and I'd like to hear some more like that. It's strange because there's not much else that I can think of, and I'm not sure how to describe...
  19. Religious Music
    This is my first introduction in the world of religious music ,if i skip some Penderecki and Part(i am the true vine).Its quite relaxing,, the cd is an apex budget cd, featuring Maureen Forrester , Gene Tucker and the choral arts society of washington. Maybe i have a hard time enjoying the...
  20. Classical Music Discussion
    For instance I remember a poster requesting electronic music that was less about experimenting with sounds and more about melody and thematic development. Or maybe you've always wanted to hear something that will probably never exist, like a full-fledged symphony based on a favorite film score...
