  3. Identifying Classical Music
    I only know part of this piece by ear but don't know the name of it.
  4. Off Topic Pub here is an article. It´s not about homeschooling even though it´s published on this site. It´s about importance of handwriting. What do you think about that? I´m just a bit worried, because I type too much.... "Writing has...

  6. Today's Composers Not sure if "Heart Beat Pleasure" works as a title.
  7. Today's Composers
    Greetings, I've been on the board about a year but haven't introduced myself as a composer. Been composing since childhood, just "improvising" like most musically precocious kids do and then writing on paper starting around ten. Like many here, I didn't go to music college but kept composing...
  8. Keyboard Instruments
    With the large number of keyboard players on the site, I thought it might be helpful to have a central place for discussions of keyboard sheet music. With a healthy CD collection, and in the age of streaming services, I find myself more interested in expanding my sheet music collection than...

    Luzzaschi was a pupil of Cipriano de Rore most well-known for his madrigals and keyboard music. La Venexiana has released a recording of some of his madrigals: Matteo Messori has recorded his keyboard music for Brilliant:

    If you could only own 3 Bach solo keyboard recordings what would you choose?* * Including harpsichord, piano or organ recordings only please.

    I'm looking for something more portable than a digital piano so I could use it other than at my house, (also modern computer connectivity would be nice) but I also want a full size keyboard. Does something like this exist?
  12. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    The keyboard is an essential instrument of western classical music from solo music to concertos or just in the background as accompaniment. Many of the very greatest composers were either virtuosos themselves with their preferred keyboard and or great composers of the instrument. But which...

    Imho, opening the following link will let one experience a tasteful interpretation of the "Goldberg""
  14. Solo & Chamber Music
    We are looking at CPE Bach and beyond, and their works that can be most expressively played on the clavichord. We are looking for recordings of these composers and compositions on clavichord; which are your favorites? WF Bach is an obvious one that can be interpreted this way. He wrote...
  15. Solo & Chamber Music
    CPE Bach, is for the most part, neglected... even if he is one of the "upper" and better off" "neglected" composers. It's TalkClassical so I expect everyone is familiar with him but I talk of the other 99% public. Anywho, I came across a gargantuan set of all his Sonatas for Keyboard [on...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    This sort of thread may have come up but here it is again for my pleasure… According to genre, who is the undisputed master… in other words dividing up music into as many (or as few) categories as you can and name one composer the master of said category… Why don't I kick it off, so you see what...

    A clavier is a generic name for any stringed keyboard including the piano. An organ, however, is not a clavier, although some say the keyboard portion of any instrument that employs one is a clavier. The term comes from the Latin clavis or key-bearer. It is related to clavichord (literally...

    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...
  19. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hello guys, how can you define chamber music exactly? For example, can WTC or Goldbergs or English Suites etc. kinds of solo keyboard works or solo violin sonatas & partitas be defined as "Chamber music"? Or Bach's concertos, trio sonatas?
