  1. Solved Cases (archive)
    Hi! I am having trouble figuring if these fall into basic use of period or replica instruments use or no. Thanks greatly for any help! :D 1. Bach (JS) - Organ Works (Walcha) 2. Cavazzoni - Complete Organ Music (Del Sordo) 3. Jacquet De La Guerre - Chamber Music From The Brossard Collection...

  2. Opera
    I've been thinking about HIP lately, especially when it comes to opera singing. I've been listening to a lot more Baroque opera (which I used to think an insufferable bore) through historic recordings. Reading the reviews of these recordings, I'm struck by how consistently I read something like...
  3. Orchestral Music
    General introduction to the threads. Ignore if you have already seen it. This thread is one part of my Beethoven Symphonies Challenge. It will be divided in six episodes or "tables", and will compare a number of Symphony cycles in terms of performing quality and sound. The content of the six...

    My birthday's coming up and I think I'll ask for a set of Haydn symphonies in the HIP school. Can anyone recommend the sets by Bruggen, Pinnock, Weil or other? (whether London, Paris or 'Sturm und Drang' is not so much of an issue as I like them all). Specifically, I'd like a set with plenty of...

    Just saw the news in today's Telegraph Spanning both modern and HIP music, he may be most remembered for his completion of Mozart's Requiem. See also the wiki article.
  6. Recorded Music and Publications
    I'm in the process of thinning down my music collection and I am contemplating Hogwood's Beethoven Symphony Cycle to complement the set of Piano Concertos. My question is this - would it be worth picking up or would it simply overlap or compare negatively against the two HIP cycles I already...
  7. Classical Music Discussion
    For the longest time I've been listening to Immerseel's HIP Beethovne set. But I recently started listening to my old set with the Staatskapelle Dresden with Blomstedt, with fairly restrained performances. My set with Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin arrived today. And I have to say, I...
  8. Classical Music Discussion
    Are there any of you, who like me, think of a specific person in your life when you listen to a particular piece of music. For me I always think of the Tristan und Isolde prelude when I think of the love of my life (cliche as that may be, it's the truth). I always think of my father when I...
  9. Recorded Music and Publications
    Well, TC, I must admit that I still don't own a single recording of Bach. Help me change that by recommending me your favorite recording of the Mass in B Minor! I am heavily leaning in favor of HIP recordings, but I'm open to all suggestions! I'm thinking of the Gardiner recording, but my mind...
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    HIP is now mainstream and widely accepted. But do you go all the way with HIP? I don't. I prefer almost everything after Bach on modern instruments, and I vastly prefer Bach's solo keyboard works on modern piano. I also wish HIP groups didn't use countertenors everywhere - I prefer female altos...
  11. Non-Classical Music
    ive been reading various threads on this forum and it seems that heavy metal is held in little regard, yet I notice Hip Hop seems to be held in high regard. I find this interesting that such bands that appeal to me within the heavy metal spectrum such as Lost Horizon, Opeth or the heavily...
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    The idea about going HIP has fascinated me a lot ever since I joined up with TC last month. I am definitely a champion of the freestyle interpretation of classical pieces without regard for the scholarly nature of the work. Examples including Glenn Gould (definitely not HIP) or Fazil Say...
