    Hi! I saw Mozart's Don Giovanni at the Opera house in Oslo the other day. Amazing acoustics, by the way. I don't know much about Opera, but it was one section of the opera where a part of the really stood out to me. This is all I can tell you about it: The orchestra were playing pizzicato...

    In another thread, various posts expressed divergent opinions re contemporary violin soloists. Most comments focused on sound, but I think that there is another factor at work. Hilary Hahn is technically superb and has produced breathtaking performances, but has an impassive facial expression...

    Hi folks! Way back when I was a kid, I used to play the family organ, and learned a bunch of Bach tunes. I found some old recordings of myself -- and forgive me, I know my playing is just awful in these, but I had no formal training! -- and for the life of me I can't figure out what the exact...

  13. Woodwind and Brass
    Hi, there - I started a thread in the strings forum to ask people how they 'got into' playing their instrument. But I love hearing other people's life experiences, so maybe you woodwind and brass players could tell us how you became 'hooked' on playing your instrument, and what sort of music you...

    ...but I do compose some music... :D So, here is the explanation. I never learned music notation and I never went to any musical school, but I always wanted to learn to play piano or something similar (synth), so I didn't want to wait anymore and half year ago friend gave me some old synth from...

    Hi I am a 56 year old medical doctor -if you at 37 years are 'old' I hate to think what I am. I have written an app for iphone/ipad just for someone asking your question! The app allows you to play classical piano pieces (limited to this because of copyright with more modern music). It provides...

    Ha! I've talked a lot on here about how hard it is to get an electrical transcription of an acoustically recorded 78. Now I've been able to capture it. Here is "Qual volutta trascrorre" from Verdi's I Lombardi. The singers are Enrico Caruso, Frances Alda and Marcel Journet. It was recorded on...
