    I was watching an episode of my favourite animated comedy show recently and they played this music in on of their cut-aways. I know this music so well, I think that I have even played it, but I just can't place the title right now - my mind has just gone blank. Can anybody put my mind at rest...
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    This is a very open-ended question. Some version of it comes up a lot, in discussions of all kinds of music. For example, in The Classical Style, which I'm slowly reading, Rosen criticizes much of Haydn's church music for adopting an anachronistic Baroque style. He also criticizes Romantic...

  12. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    A perennial issue here. Some people want the experience of great sonics; one person recently posted that they'd never buy a CD with audible tape hiss. Others place little stock in the sound but search for the most magnificent performances, regardless of the sound. Where do you stand? Click your...

    There's a piece of music played at approximately 53 minutes into the docudrama linked to below. I'm sure I have heard it somewhere but can't place either the piece's name or where I may have heard it. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated...
