  2. Recorded Music and Publications
    I've read a lot online about this OIBP release being inferior to the original pressing. Does anyone have any experience of this they could share?
  3. Orchestral Music
    Which version do you like the original or revised?
  4. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hello everybody! As I've already said in another post, and this night I encountered a cheerful piece that struck my facial musculature activating one levator anguli oris (not two, just one), both orbicularis oculi and both zygomaticus minor; probably you'll ask "and so? why should it be a...

    Does anyone know this piano piece? I'm a little bit afraid it is an original composition. But maybe not :)

    At about 2:36, they transition from Dido's Lament by Purcell to some piece, which I assume is Bach. I would greatly appreciate it if someone were to inform me of the original piece's title.
  8. Recorded Music and Publications
    As a person who is interested in getting vinyl cheaply but wanting the best sound quality... is it better to get the original pressing if possible or the reissue? Just curious. Today I scored nearly 18 old DG vinyl releases on vinyl for dirt dirt cheap. I know that DG is doing re-pressing of...
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    for the sake of time I'll forgo greetings, im searching for a few classical pieces to whom the original composers escape me and my efforts to piece together the song/composition to their creators. while my search has yielded success on some fronts im still amiss on my original goal and would ask...
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    So, as I talked about in the thread "Pieces that have blown you away recently", I recently listened to Mussorgsky's original version of "Night on Bald Mountain" and I loved it. It's way different from the Rimsky-Korsakov version. Mussorgsky had a lot of original and unique ideas and I can tell...

    To be honest, some of these don't even seem to be music. For example, the score of "Piano Piece for David Tudor #3" consists of the sentence "Most of them were very old grasshoppers." Compositions: 1960, #10 is "Draw a straight line and follow it." And then there's Compositions: 1960, #13...

    I am a huge fan of transcriptions. What are your favorite transcriptions? And also which transcriptions are better than the original? Which transcriptions are worse than the original? Liszt's transcription of Schubert's vocal piece. So moving.
  13. 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...

    A new thread for the same subject matter. The previous thread, Current Listening Vol II, has become another huge file, and to prevent any problems we were having in the original Current Listening Vol I thread, we have created this new volume to continue posting. Krummhorn, :cool: Administrator
  15. Today's Composers
    Hi ! This is the job : to compose short soundtracks, with a popular pattern. It's not original but I hope efficient. Here is the 7th opus. You're the judge now :
  16. Vocal Music
    Does anyone have a source for this vocalise? This appears in book of Marco Bordogni vocalises adapted for trombone study by Johannes Rochut. However, there appears to be no original source for the very first one in this set, excerpted below, in any known Bordogni collection. The current...
  17. Music Theory
    How common they are in tonal, non-serial music? How many can really hear the connection between the "original" melody and the retrogade version on intellectual or instictual level?
  18. Opera
    Some few years ago I published a brief article on S&F titled Wagner's Business, Not Ours that set off a storm of protest on a Wagner Usenet Newsgroup the ferocity of which was unexpected but on second thought shouldn't have been as the article seemed to call into question (although it actually...
