    Which are your favourite films/series about composers?
  2. Classical Music Discussion
    For those of you who can't be limited to ten or even to one hundred. For those of you who don't think a vertical perspective is at all useful for thinking about the arts. For those of you who are just generally inclusive. This is your thread. Every once and awhile, post a composer or twelve...
  3. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I have just purchased the discs of the Decca Verdi / Nabucco / Gardelli and was somewhat dismayed to find the libretto now has to be obtained on line instead of being in printed form with the discs. I have done what the booklet and the website suggests but there is absolutely no way I can access...

    I imagine it's one of his piano sonatas. I haven't really listened to Beethoven's piano works in great depth (shameful I know) so if someone could tell me that would be great. If anyone's interested this video is part of a fantastic series of lectures Bernstein gave at Harvard in 1973. You can...

    Okay, so I have no clue if this thread has been done before but because I have been having a very nostalgic week I though I would post this.

    Daniel Barenboim has designed his own piano. "Barenboim launched the instrument at London's Royal Festival Hall, in advance of his Schubert recital series. He intends to perform the entire series on the new piano." Interesting article.

    Pardon me if this already has been discussed, I did a short search but couldn't find anything. Has anybody seen this yet? What do you think? Last night I watched the pilot for this TV series (using that term loosely), which is a soap opera about the lives of the employees of a world-famous...
  10. Orchestral Music
    Herbert von Karajan - Austria (1908-1989) A controversial figure all his life, not least for his membership of the Nazi Party in the 1930s, Karajan nevertheless rose to be the most prominent conductor in the world. In the process he left a series of breathtaking recordings, some of which have...
  11. Orchestral Music
    A new series with no fixed interval. To kick off this tentative series, I've picked one of my all time favorite conductors: LEONARD BERNSTEIN (American - 1918-1990) State your favorite recordings! __________________________________________________...
