    Vote for your favorite orchestral works (other than symphonies) composed by Jean Sibelius. As the Valse Triste is the shortest and probably the most famous orchestral work composed by Sibelius, I have deliberately omitted it due to constraints on the number of choices.

    Hi everyone. After last week's events in Christchurch which affected the whole country a great deal, I was moved to write another Waltz. It's not intended to be programmatic, although it does contain some eastern-ish themes. Hope you enjoy, and criticisms welcome.

    Lately, revising some conductors that were going to feature in my Beethoven Challenge, I came across some symphonies conducted by Otto Klemperer, famous for the "architecture" of his cycle. I have read that it has been out-of-fashion, but I enjoyed some movements of the Eroica. Also, Mozart 29...

    On Friday night (11/3), Ballet West, Utah's pro ballet company, put on something rather unique. The first half of the performance was George Balanchine's "Serenade." Very well-done. The second half of the performance after the intermission was something I've never experienced before. It was the...

    Maestro Byckov has reminded me something - Tchaikovsky 6, 1st movement, the passage beginning 9 bars after rehearsal mark Q - In about half of the recordings the brass enters obviously earlier than it should. I've been wondering why. What do you guys think, please?

    What are some orchestral pieces Mozart composed that you feel don't quite get the recognition they quite deserve? And it can be anything involving an orchestra as long as it is purely instrumental (concertos and opera overtures count, but not works with vocals). List a few. They can be works as...
