    My resources and life situation is such now that I can't go to some immersion school in Costa Rica or Mexico to learn Spanish. I haven't studied in a while and consequently am really rusty. I run into similar blocks every time I try to study Spanish without any tutoring. Vocab doesn't often...

    Okay this is what Liszt is often accused of (maybe not in those exact words but you get the point). So is it?
  3. Woodwind and Brass
    Who wrote your favourite flute concerto please? I am looking for advice, point me in the right direction if you please?
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    This goes back to the "Classical music is so gay" thread. I think that there is a common perception that not only CM, but most High Art is effeminate or elitist. And I think many Americans have no idea how often they are exposed to art, nor, in some cases, how fortunate they are. Yes, the...

    What was Schoenberg trying to achieve? I've seen a bunch of articles on how he intended it to be performed but what I don't seem to understand is the -why-? Did he ever write about what the point was? What he was trying to express?
  6. Non-Classical Music
    A spin-off from a discussion elsewhere. A thread to share some of your favourite German pop/rock songs and bands. Bonus points for those singing in German. I'll start with my fave:

    Hi - I am a classical music beginner. I was recently watching this Joshua Bell interview and need your help in identifying the piece that is playing at the very beginning of the interview. It's time point 0:00 to 0:16 (16 seconds long) and at the very beginning of the video - Joshua is...
  8. Opera
    I'm learning Italian for an upcoming trip to Italy, and after about a month, I realized I might start to be able to listening to opera, if I learned the proper words. Now I'm not to that point, I just realized hey there will be a point that I don't need subtitles anymore. My question is, how...

    This is just a dorky, stupid little idea, but... Schubert: Sherbet Faure: Far, Aye? Beethoven: Bait Oven (an upcoming trend in the crossover genre of fishing/cooking) Bach: (too obvious) Myerbeer: My, um, er, Beer? I think you get the point. Now if you are infinitely bored, let's see what you...

    It took me a long time before enjoying it, but i think it's an œuvre majeure, a surrealist ufo among classical. I have the Robert Craft version but is there a better version out there?Would like to point out le pierrot lunaire is pitch black in term of darkness, but infuse whit ''comedie...
  11. Opera
    It's official, we have a date and a place agreed! Everyone is welcome. Theatre seat booking isn't open yet. We'll try to get seats close together if we can, although that's a minor point really. We'll have a meal and drinks beforehand, probably during and after too! Currently committed...

    How about a thread in which we post recordings that we want but can't find? (or are only available for extreme prices.) Perhaps members of the forum would be willing to sell a copy or point to a source. I'll start with this one: If anyone has it and is willing to part with it for a reasonable...
