  1. Opera
    I don't remember anymore the tenor or the opera house. But once I read that a tenor who had sung Otello the previous night participated on the next days production of La Boheme as a waiter in the second act. If I remember correctly both the audience and other singers where quite surprised. Quite...

    Hi all. I have two pieces that I know I know, but there names won't come to me. I've tried to play bits from them on the piano (sorry about the sound quality). So the first one: I remember this phrase being so moving in this orchestral piece (I'm guessing Rachmaninoff?) The second: I feel...

    I have had this experience a few times, where I will accidentally fall asleep while listening to music. I will sleep like normal and dream but the music will be present while I am dreaming, seeming to somehow influence the dream. This happened just a few nights ago as I was listening to...

    The prime of soprano Cheryl Studer was before my time, but I've just started listening to her as Salome on DG's recording from 1990/1991 (it's the one with Bryn Terfel as Jochanaan). This recording and Studer's interpretation have been highly praised. Has anyone here actually heard Studer live...

    López, "an avant-garde experimental musician and sound artist" according to the current Wikipedia entry, was the "talkclassical composer of the month" in January 2015, and I believe most of us who participated listened to the recordings available in the fairly popular Kairos set (which appears...

    When I was probably 12 or 13 ( I'm now 30). I was listening to some sort of npr station. They were playing their hour of classical music. And this piece came on that as ridiculous as it sounds I could swear the host of the show said, and now, "lots of instruments" by vivaldi. The piece had what...

    Remember Collins Classics? I've wrote a small article about Collins Classics and a playlist of some favorite recordings: I can still remember that a Dutch warehouse had these records for 10 guilders each (full price...

    I ought this might be an interesting idea for a thread. I don't always get in touch with what's new, but on occasion I do, and I always try to get to concerts featuring world premieres. The most recent piece of music I have heard was in fact Olli Mustonen's Sonata for Violin and Orchestra, the...

But for the life of me i can not find a single thing about it online, nor can i remember the composer, it had EXTREMELY awkward note spacing throughout...

    It is eighty years ago today that Elvis Presley was born in a wooden shack in Tupelo, Mississippi, on the 8th January 1935. This is a thread for those who would like to remember this great artist, and a place to post youtube links and discuss all things Elvis! I will start by posting what is...

    Still an hour (on the Left Coast anyway) to remember that Saint-Saens passed away today, on Beethoven's birthday in 1921. Play something by him and remember!
