  1. Classical Music Discussion
    I was wondering how you rate classical music radios. By radio I mean radios with a host, real radios or internet radios like Classic FM or BBC. I'm not personally a big fan of radios, since I find them distracting. First of all, music changes from artist to artist all the time. When I've just...
  2. Classical Music Discussion
    There's a new on line classical music station that plays 24/7 the works of the classical music world's greatest Black classical music composers and the performances of Black classical music artists. What I like about it is that these are composers who most folk have never heard of, let alone...

    Hi there. I've just heard this piece and I want to know more about it. I would thank you so much if you help me with its identification. It was recorded from the radio, so please excuse me for the bad quality of the audio. I think it is an extract of a first part of a symphony. Thank you so much!

    When using VLF AM radio, one will hear a strange whistling sound that descends rapidly. That would be lightning. There is lightning going off somewhere on the earth every second of everyday. A lightning flash penetrates the plasma bands surrounding the planet creating ripples which then race...
  5. Classical Music Discussion
    Hello everyone, *I'm new here, hope this is the right sub forum* I'm looking for ways to discover new classical works and composers. So far I'm searching YouTube and looking into the "influenced by" or "similar artists" sections on allmusic. Could anyone kindly recommend blogs, internet radio...

    The Callas fans on this forum will no doubt have heard of 'Nina Foresti'. The claim is that Callas appeared on Major Bowes Amateur hour (a radio talent contest) before she went to Greece. John Ardoin looked through the archives of the recordings of the radio broadcasts and thought that the...

    My local radio station, KBAQ, plays what I consider to be a good variety of composers. I am curious to see how this compares to the experience of other people on this site. I looked at last Friday's playlist, which seems to be a fair representation of the station's usual broadcasting practice...
  8. Recorded Music and Publications
    I found this..... http://www.amazon.com/Arturo-Toscanini-The-Complete-Collection/dp/B006VKKAWQ They include concerts that were broadcast on radio. I was wondering if there are any other box sets that include either all radio broadcasts or at least a good selection.

    Not just on radio, as who listens to radio anymore? But anywhere. Glad I quit flying BA as I actually used to like Lakme What would you be glad never to hear again at this point? Canon in D - Pachelbel Vivaldi's Four Seasons Debussy - Clair de Lune Strauss - Blue Danube Dvořák - New World...
  10. Non-Classical Music
    This could just as well go on one of the Classical forums except... I blame this on the radio but there seems to be an increasing preponderance of "Smooth" FM stations that take favourite pieces and repeat them over and over again. It's not the artists fault but I find I can only hear simple...
  11. Opera
    My brother told me this evening that Ms. Juntwait had died. I was very surprised as I had no idea she was ill, or even that she had stopped hosting (I haven't heard a complete Met broadcast since last December, when she was still working). Though I've always been partial to the previous host...

    There are a few good internet radio stations I listen to mostly AVRO De Klassieken, I believe it to be computer generated random list so there's no dj's but they can also be randomly repetitive the other is Radio swiss classic (in French) they have dj's but french is so soothing its not as...

    Just heard this on the radio and as Touchemoulin has no threads, I thought I'd post it :)
  14. Hi-Fi
    Hi everyone, I'm currently considering buying a new (portable) radio player. I have been using a 5.1 sound system for a while on my computer now, but would like a back-up when my computer isn't around. Here's what I would ideally want: - CD player (possibly with MP3 CD support) - USB support -...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Here in the States, holiday music (including Christmas carol and other well-known gems) are played endlessly not only in stores and public places but also on the radio of classical music stations, including our local public radio station and on the classical station on satellite radio (Sirius...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    I have vivid memories of the classical music radio station when I was a young kid in Bowling Green, KY. It was marvelous to be introduced to Mozart, the Boston Pops, Met Opera broadcasts, Beethoven, Strauss, etc. and recording those using cassette tapes. Today's world is more based on streaming...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi everyone! Some days ago I started to look for one web radio dedicated to J S Bach, but the results were very few. Then I decided to create a web radio with this purpose. So here it is! http://bachradio.org There is a lot of more work to do! Currently, all content had come from open...
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    well, first of all please forgive my english. Im a natural spanish speaker xD I´ve a question for you guys. Anyone knows radiostations online with live concerts? I did remember that the opera channel on Sirius has MET live performances almost every week. But Sirius isnt an option for me...

    It's a very old recording and very low mp3 quality, so I apologize for that, but you can still hear it clearly and it's over 3 minutes long, so hopefully someone can identify it. I listen to a lot of classical music from all eras, and scoured the internet trying to find out what this is, but...
