  1. Opera
    Hello! Does anybody have suggestions for operatic repertoire for baritone/bass in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish or Finnish? There is plenty of art song repertoire in those languages, but Nordic opera arias seem harder to find... Here's what I have so far: ''Flickor skynden er'' from Estrella de...
  2. Solo & Chamber Music
    I'm going into sophomore year. I have started learning Liszt's Un Sospiro, Chopin Op. 10 no 12, Beethoven 1, Waldstein Sonata, and Bach Prelude and Fugue no 5 from book 1. Is this enough for someone aspiring to become a professional pianist and to go to conservatory? If not, any suggestions for...
  3. Opera
    Hello everyone! I am a 21-year-old coloratura soprano about to study with some new teachers/coaches after finishing my undergraduate studies. They would like to know what five arias I want to work on with them and I am a bit at a loss as to how to create the most varied and interesting program...
  4. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hello We've been asked to play on a graduating ceremony. The university asked for some light classical or film music for string quartet. We've already got a few possible pieces, but we'd like to have some fresh ideas (not too difficult, we've got a certain level, but are not professional...

    So I have another thread about my current college audition repertoire, which I would use in a year from now since I am a junior in high school. My teacher recently brought up Schumann’s Kresleriana, does anyone think this could possibly be an appropriate piece to audition with under the...

  7. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hello everyone. I am a somewhat advanced pianist. I have just started learning Mozart's Concerto No. 21, as well as Weddingday At Troldhaugen of Grieg (which is somewhat below my level). However, I would like to play another solo piece (or two), but I have no idea what to play. I am 14 years...

    21st Century Listening Chain The idea is simple: One person adds a youtube link (or other link) to a short piece of music, or segment of a longer work. The next person must listen to (or already know) the first piece before adding their own link to a different piece of music. The following...
  9. Vocal Music
    Hello, this is my first post. I am also searching through old threads but am hoping some of you will have suggestions for repertoire, or can point me to specific threads where this may have been discussed. I am putting together a recital. My church's organ has just been refurbished and sounds...
  10. Music Theory
    I am compiling examples for a Theory/ Reading class I teach of pieces in certain meters. I'm looking for examples from the great composers- symphonies, operas, concerti, or art-songs, preferably with melodies that are singable. It's to teach how the meter is used in context, how to count it, and...
  11. Opera
    Hello: :tiphat: I'm an aspiring academic singer (singing opera/art songs; from Bach and Mozart to modern music) and I encountered a problem that is connected to the repertoire studies. I'm trying to understand if this problem is peculiar in my case, or may it be familiar to the others...
  12. Woodwind and Brass
    Not sure what demon inside me, but I just bought it home and enjoy every millimeter of it. Playing it also. I have playing chinese flute (dizi) since childhood, so "creating" the sound and embochuring is already known to me. Overall, learning new instrument is not alien to me, as I posted in old...
  13. Opera
    Hello, I am a young man currently studying musical theater. I have a range that goes from the lowest extreme an F2 and to the highest extreme an E5. Since I most recently have expanded my upper range and since I most recently have discovered my head voice, I have to concentrate on really...
  14. Solo & Chamber Music
    The Beaux Arts Trio complete Philips recordings has lobbed in my mailbox, and what an amazing collection. The group was founded in 1955 and ended in 2008, with some personnel changes along the way. Get this 60-CD set and you get virtually the classical repertoire for piano trio, with earlier and...

    Most orchestral concerts consist of established masterpieces which have been staples of the repertoire for at least a hundred years or so, although there are exceotions . The concerts by Leon Botstein and his American symphony orchestra in New York have been concentrating on truly off beat...
  17. Opera
    The title refers to how opera houses weigh the importance of its creatives and how it influences the choice of productions. I stumbled across this article from a couple of years ago. http://www.limelightmagazine.com.au/blog/making-opera-now The second paragraph reads... While these audience...
  18. Beginners
    As an amateur composer, I'm curious to know... are you frustrated by lack of repertoire for your instrument... or lack of repertoire for a particular type of ensemble? ie: looking for duets with your particular instrument, but find very little music. Just curious to know what kind of...
  19. Opera
    Confession: I love baritones. Those beautiful losers! I always root for them to get the girl, and they never do... I'm always looking to broaden my bucket list of operas to see, so, I would love to hear people's opinions on what the greatest baritone roles are. (in different repertoires, or...
