  1. 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:
  2. Site Feedback & Technical Support
    A few things: My post count suddenly decreased this afternoon from about 9,081 to 9,066 and I have no idea why. My signature (which was the sleeping emoticon) disappeared a week or two ago and I have no idea why. I can't use bold or italics or underline (and so on) in group messages OR my...
  3. Music Theory
    He said of Weber's opera, " 'Euryanthe' is an accumulation of diminished seventh chords -- all little backdoors!" I have no idea what this means. Anybody?
  4. Composer Guestbooks
    Criminally underappreciated composer by both listeners and performers/orchestras* and even record labels. Just go through the crazily intense Nine Rivers** cycle (two of which, Nos. 1 and 4 been released***), or the two explosive orchestral works Ignis Noster and Helle Nacht**** from a triptych...

    Evening, I do an online quiz and for one of the questions this piece of music is important. Does anyone have any idea who it is by and what it is called? Any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot

  7. Music Theory
    I've read various articles about how the concept of tuning developed in the 17th, 18th century. But I wonder who decided that 'C' is 'C'? I assume that the first organs were the first instruments with repeatable fixed pitches, right? Even though they may have been lower than today, the pitches...

    Any idea from what works are these two dramatic introductions?
  9. Non-Classical Music
    First of all, I would like thank Ingelou for providing this original idea here: Let's play the game with non-classical music. Her rule is: "The idea is to plant stepping stones between one composer & another, moving backwards & forwards...
  10. Site Feedback & Technical Support
    I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to have a CD/vinyl exchange/sale thread for those hunting down rare albums/box sets? A good idea, folks?

    Yes i had this fresh idea, since it dosen exist and a lot of people these days enjoy new age, like tarot reading(well maybe so?).Than an idea went in my mind a tarot for classical affecionados, the 20 first arcane would be great great composer well know, the minor arcane would be lesser know...

    scratchgolf and I are bouncing an idea of doing a mail exchange for CD's (or hard drives) so that we can hear each other's collections :). This would be pretty innovative like mail art. What do people think of this idea? :)

    I was watching a review on youtube of a guitar that I am buying soon and the guy showing the guitar played this piece of acoustic music that I really loved and I want to know what the song is. I have no idea if its even classical music but it sounded like it. 1:42-2:02

    I've always wondered what piece this is under all the sfx or where it is from... Anyone have an idea? Many thanks.

    This may have been tried before, but I wondered about this idea. How about nominating a composer of the month, people then post works or performances they particularly enjoy and the merits can be debated over. The composers place in the great pantheon can be argued and we can all follow the...
