    I did this thread long ago, but it was forgotten and not many people replied. I want update! People have specialties on this forum. Some people really make an effort to contribute in specific ways either to the discussion or the community atmosphere. Some people really spend a lot of time in the...

    I was wondering if all of you here on the talk classical forums could give me some advice on which of these two techniques would get my performance portfolio to the most people. #1 Go with the Pro Unlimited Plan on Soundcloud(Upload as many tracks as I want at a lower bitrate for $135/year). #2...
  3. Opera
    Sure, it's easy enough for people to poke fun at Wagner's Ring and do parodies of it, such as the late Anna Russell , but to call its story and situations absurd and ridiculous actually misses the point altogether . I actually enjoy these spoofs myself . The Ring is mythology and fantasy . So...

    Let's see how this will go: I dedicate this thread to sketches, thoughts, brainstorming, and perhaps a polished "work" or 2 that you'd like to hear some feed back on. Specifically something other than composition (since we have a whole sub-forum dedicated to that). Writing, visual art maybe...
  5. Classical Music Discussion
    Classical fans today worry that not enough people are getting into classical music, my main worry however is not how many are taking a liking to it but how much they are actually getting out of it. It seems like plenty of people nowadays are into classical but it looks like the vast majority of...
  6. Opera
    That's a good news I think! Here a video showing how it was at the reopening in 2013 and how Iran's opera people feel about it: Seems opera has been very welcomed back to Iran; this video now shows the official footage made at Café Opéra - the cafeteria at Tehran opera house Talar-e Vahdat (=...

    ...They do things differently there. This is a thread for posting your insights into history, or for posting amazing things you've discovered about the way people thought or acted. Hopefully it is not a thread for patronising the people of the past, or for having a laugh at 'quaint...

    I've been on the phone with Apple support, and as some of you know, that the limit for iCloud Music/iMatch etc is 25k. Both times the people I talked to had seemingly never heard of a collection this large. I've seen posts online where more people than I are having that problem, so I know I'm...

    What's the stereotypical personality for a Western-classical music listener or musician to your perception? Does it vary from place to place? Is it true on the whole? Does it apply to you? Is there a reason for its existence? The sense I get is that people view you as being among the...

    I think they're all good in their own way but I'm wondering what people are partial to. Personally, I'd take any of them if they are high enough quality.
  11. Today's Composers
    I am thinking of releasing e-books of my scores. Do you think people are interested in this format? Do people prefer hard copy scores? Is it a generation thing? What I mean do people read music on ipads, tablets and smart phones?
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    Please understand that I have no ulterior motive in posing this question. I'm pretty new to non-operatic "classical" music and am not trying either to build Mendelssohn up or tear him down. I have heard a couple of his Songs without Words and like them very much indeed, but beyond that I have...

    People's agendas are what makes this forum exist at all! This thread here exists because somebody likes, or hates a piece, because it represents something to them, as an ideology, or as an aesthetic approach to life. Sure, we know that opinions do not exist "in" the music itself, and that...

    How do people here perceive vinyl rips at 24/96?
  15. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Very simple. After seeing that we have a current atonal like/dislike thread, I decided that it would be interesting to conduct a new poll that looks at two pretty maligned forms of music... "atonal" and rap/hip-hop music. I'm curious to see whether there is a crossover between people who like...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    I'm going to apply for a composition program. Right now, my main colleges are USC, Indiana, or Eastman. I will try to choose maybe another or maybe replace one because I know these are really difficult to get into. I talked to my band teacher and some professors and they all said that they only...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    I only recently learned of this concert, the details of which are outlined below (Taken from Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall) It was Sunday, 12 November 1989, and the whole of Berlin was celebrating: Following the 9th of November when Günter Schabowski, then spokesperson of the SED...
