    It's been a long time since I've read something of this nature, I'm afraid my literary evolution has been halted for some years now :( Figured I'd start with something small and this'd be a good place to ask ;) Oh, and a couple more questions - did you keep evolving/ expanding your literary...

    I'd be interested to read your recommendations.
  3. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Part of a continuing series of polls, which simply asks: Which of these works do you like? My goal is to build a general picture of the musical interests on TC. Please vote for *all* of the pieces you like. Options are available for voters who don't know any of the works, and those who know...

    I've come across lots of conflicting information about whether or not Chopin liked Beethoven's music. I read a quote earlier in which he praised Hummel, Bach and Beethoven as being the great examples to strive for. Also, I know he admired Beethoven's 12th Piano Sonata, Op 26. But then I've also...
  5. Opera
    Hello! I just joined yesterday, but I had read the forum before joining for a few months. There are very diverse threads, but one was missing. There were discussions on many singers, but not about Pippo (nickname used by fans, family and friends). And yeas I know about the Del Monaco vs...

    Of course, he was one of the gigantic writers of the 20th century. I adore his works like Tremor of Intent(regrettably I read it in Japanese translation), A Clockwise-orange( I read this one in English), which was well-known over the world when filmed by Stanley Kubrick. Somewhere I once read...

    This is not so much an ad (I don't make any money to speak of), but an informative blurb because I think many people here would enjoy it. My musicological novel, available as an e-book, is soon going out of print -- and it's a good (but hardly prizewinning) and entertaining read for people who...

    I'm curently reading "A History of Opera" by Carolyn Abbate and Roger Parker. A great read so far.

    I'd like to humbly request a name modification. Please, shorten my current username from "TheProudSquire" to simply read as "ProudSquire". Thanks for all your help. TPS

    I think it would be interesting to know what your favorite books are. You learn a lot about a person by knowing what music they like and what books have been meaningful/enjoyable to them. Plus it might give me some ideas about books to read. Thanks!:)
  11. Music Theory
    Can anyone please suggest a good book for a gentle intro to music theory? I can read music notation, but I don't think I'm looking for anything too hardcore. Just something I can read by the bedside. Many thanks,
  12. Recorded Music and Publications
    I sometimes buy CDs that were printed ten or even twenty years ago. They're not necessarily used, they may be CDs that were printed a long time ago and then not sold until I bought them. A few of them show black deterioration at one or two points on the edges. I've read that this is due to...
