    This issue came up on the Popularity thread and Dogen suggested a poll. :tiphat: I wonder what the range of musical education is on TC. I know the range includes professional players, academic theoreticians, practising composers, music teachers, amateur instrumentalists, those who studied it at...

    Anyone living in Montreal? I'd love to connect with some people to occasionally attend concerts together. I'm 39 and I have interest in most of the repertoire. Perhaps if there's enough interest we could form a little meeting group. So many great concerts in this city!

    I'll kick off with this possibly mispriced Brilliant box of 65 Handel CDs for $20.99 (in the US anyway). http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0106UFMP6/ref=cm_cd_asin_lnk Not available yet, but if you have an interest you maybe should order it now. Amazon has a price guarantee that applies even...
  4. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Here we have the 7 lowest scoring composers of the previous poll. ..wonder what that means... Hopefully this'll spike some interest on the poor dead fellas.
  5. Today's Composers
    I thought I might post something I released earlier this year (April), or rather two related things, which may prove to be of interest to some people here. I hope they do. Bit Player (mp3 / FLAC / stream) is a composition in the vein of Frank Zappa's Lumpy Gravy (1968). Both pieces combine...
  6. Classical Music Discussion
    Participating on TC invariably exposes most of us to the names of composers we've never heard of or, at the least, never heard any of the music of. If you are like me, you have loads of music to listen to and your musical plate is heaped beyond your capacity to digest it all and you've already...

    Any interest in having a top 100 American classical works thread along the lines of Turnabout Vox's String Quartet 100+ thread? I thought I might organise a similar undertaking and that a thread based on nationality rather than genre might be entertaining - although restricting it to...

    Much to my delight today, my 2.5 year old niece showed some interest in my violin without being frightened off. She was ok enough to touch, and pluck at the strings a little bit. I've got a half size and three quarter sitting in the back of the closet collecting dust, what can I do to help...
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    Suppose you have a close friend who likes good music (good jazz, rock, etc.) but has never shown any interest in classical music. Suppose you want to buy him/her one/more CDs or, better, a CD box set for Christmas, the one you think is the most appropriate to try to arouse his interest in CM...
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    I recently read Kim Stanley Robinson's "2312", which included a character witnessing a wind ensemble performing the Appassionata (on Mercury no less) to supposedly great effect. Out of interest I have searched Itunes, Amazon etc for a recording of such but could not find one. Does anyone know...

    How did we all get here.... as in liking classical music opposed to, or along with, pop music and such that modern society seems to push for these days? What got me interested was a want for intensity and passion in music that was full of emotion, opposed to the passion being placed in lyrics...
  12. New Member Introductions
    Greetings! I'm 19 years old and I come from a completely non-musical background. I'm currently studying something very contradictory to music in college, or so I thought. Cross out business, accounting, engineering, architecture, law and arts of any kind. What do you think is left? Anyway...
