  1. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi, I'm new on the forum and I'm skipping the introduction part just because I find easier to do it while I open this thread. The provocative title stands from the fact that is not so much that I like music itself (refusing general attention to virtuosity and stuff like that) but I'm easily...
  2. Ballet
    Relatively, I am new to classical music in general, as I only really started listening seriously a year ago. I have only come across two or three pieces from ballet's, would anybody be ale to suggest some good pieces/composers/ballets to explore?
  3. Solo & Chamber Music
    I've been in the store this morning and I have found this two editions of the Triple Concerto for less than 5 euros each. I know, for that price you would probably recommend me to purchase both, but I'm a little low on cash and I'm thinking of getting just one for now. Which one would you...
  4. Non-Classical Music
    Ever heard world beat or traditional music or whatever that made you have nightmare in other way not satanic music necessarly but evil music ''pure evil''. but dont wont to hear about metal genra, because it's so old school thematicI wanna here what you heard that made you had goose bumps...
  5. Classical Music Discussion
    I love this piece and I can't find anything similar
  6. Classical Music Discussion
    I'm pretty new about the music of this great english composer. Until now I've heard two concertos and the Fantasia on a theme by Tallis (which I love) but none of his symphonies. Very soon I'll receive the Slatkin cycle and I'm really looking forward to begin my listening but... in what order...
  7. Opera
    So I've been listening to the first two installments of Valery Gergiev's Ring, and unfortunately he doesn't have a full cycle released. Before I start on a full cycle, I want to listen to the last two operas. I know the highly recommended cycles. But just for Siegfried (and if you care to...
  8. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi everyone, i'm new to this forum. :tiphat: My favorite genre is metal actually, but every now and then i like to listen to something different. There are two 'types' of classical music which i really can appreciate. The first type i really enjoy is what i would call 'the virtuoso stuff'...
  9. Non-Classical Music
    I like Ghost Love Score by Nightwish. Are there any bands, albums and what not that you can recommend that are similar to this song? Thank you.
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    I love this symphony, but only have the (splendid) Kleiber disc, in tandem with an equally barnstorming 5. I feel a bit similar about B7 as I do Schubert 9, of which I now have - ulp - 8 versions. So can anyone recommend me some more brilliant versions of Ludwig's Seventh? Either as singles or...
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    What contemporary pieces would YOU personally recommend to the complete beginner? Keep in mind that the hypothetical newbie at hand has never heard any contemporary (or modern) Classical music and your goal is to draw him in, not to alienate him. I realize individual listeners differ widely...
  12. Orchestral Music
    I'd like to purchase an mp3 download of this work. Can anyone recommend a recording from the last 25 years? So far I have previewed Barenboim's version with the CSO, Zinman's version, and Albrecht's version on Pentatone. All sound good, Albrecht's version impresses me most so far...anyone else I...
  13. Off Topic Pub
    Okay, I am running out of my movie list to watch (apart from Criterion Collection). So recommend me some films to watch at home while I'm chilling out here. :) Much appreciation. Which films should I check out? I have seen thousands of films but would love to hear what people have to say here.
  14. Orchestral Music
    Hello, I'd like to get into these two. Which conductor do people recommend? My 10yo Rough Guide tells me Kubelik and Davis... Thanks! Steve
  15. Ballet
    I really loved this ballet number played by the Utah Symphony last weekend. Anyone can recommend a good recording for it? I am thinking about the Boulez DG version.
  16. Orchestral Music
    I was reading an article a couple of weeks ago that talked about Franz Berwald and his 4 symphonies. I listened to a couple of clips on YouTube and found them interesting enough that I bought a set of symphonies conducted by Ulf Björlin. This got me thinking, which non-major symphony...
  17. Opera
    I'm trying to get my brother into opera, but don't think that I could get him to listen to complete operas (at least initially). I'm wondering if you could recommend ONE ACT OF OPERA from each of: Verdi, Wagner, Mozart? Thanks!
  18. Solo & Chamber Music
    Anyone can recommend a good version of Mendelssohn's 'Violin Concerto'?
  19. Classical Music Discussion
    I`m going to cambodia in about a month. I`m going to try and absorb some of the culture and see what I wouldn`t be able to otherwise in the West. Somewhat vague question and perhaps not the right place to post, but would anyone be able to recommend classical music from Cambodia that would be...
  20. Recorded Music and Publications
    This is a great magazine for anyone interested in Analogue and Historical recordings. It can be bought by subsription and also one can have the downloadable variety which I use. Anyone who does not already subscribe to this magazine might like to see this edition for its set of articles which...
