Hi everyone ... Here to pick your brains again!
I'm doing a filming project about the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square in London.
I need some accompanying classical music. Ideally from London based composer (or English born), relaxing yet pensive and something that captures the atmosphere...
I travel to new York and London quite a bit from Ireland. Any recomendations for either location (Im more interested in high quality headphones and Amp/Dacs)

I'll be in London for a couple of days in November, and MAYBE I'll have some spare time, MAYBE an entire afternoon (fingers crossed... :)).
Any recommendations for a classical record shopping tour?
When I had spare time in London I used to to go to HMV in Oxford Street (now closed I believe) and...
On a happier note. Time to
I would love to see the current production of Falstaff

With the failure of my previous thread asking for outfit recommendations, I've been told to go to real shops and try the violins instead of buying online. I completely agree with the suggestion (I'm just used to online shopping nowadays), so I compiled a list of string specialists in London. I...
James Oswald was a Scottish composer and publisher. Oswald was born in Crail, Scotland in 1710, being baptised on March 21, and died in Knebworth, Hertfordshire on January 2, 1769.
He worked as a dancing master in Dunfermline until 1736 but, realising that it was poorly paid moved to...
Not all of Haydn's symphonies may be "great" symphonies, but at least half of them are. And those that aren't are still very good. Yet whenever it's time for symphony recommendations from our esteemed panel of Haydn aficionados it seems like he wrote nothing but Paris and London. Those are fine...
Over the years that I have been listening to classical music, it has been fascinating to encounter the occasional resurrection of an early version of a work which the composer withdrew and replaced. Two such examples are the 1913 version of Vaughan Williams London Symphony and the 4 movement...
Been playing the cello for almost 1/2 year now. Is there anyone in London who is at a similar level or even more advanced, who might want to chill out / play together?
Let me know,
I thought I'd post a summary of my concert year. I'd be interested to read other people's
My concert year 2014.
Ilkley: Frith Piano quartet (Suk, Martinu, Dvorak)
London: Boris Berezovsky recital. (Debussy, Rachmaninov)
Leeds: Cello Suites Natalie Clein (Britten, Bach)
With the sheer diversity of British music, I am often at a lost why it's not being as promoted, let alone, discussed, as, say, German classical music (or Russian, which I have the strongest affinity for). And with me listening to a number of British symphonies this past week, I...
I am a Spanish student currently working on my final thesis project which will consist on a deep analysis on classical music Tv and Radio programmes in some key cities around the world.
I am currently focusing my research on London and New York but it has proved quite hard for me to find...
Have you seen this man before?
I found this picture on Google, and I remember him from Covent Garden (London, in case you don't know). I missed the chance to buy his CDs when I was listening to him. Does anyone know where you can find this guy's music? I really want to enjoy it! :)
