  5. Classical Music Discussion
    Just an interesting though here. If you could take any concerto already composed, and have the composer replace the solo instrument(s), what would it be? It would obviously involve some alterations to the score to fix some conflicting issues, but if the basic themes and harmony were the same...

    It's odd because I love his symphonies, chamber music - concertos inc the piano concertos but I just cant find anything of any interest in his solo piano music. Am I alone?

  9. Classical Music Discussion
    My favorite pieces by Bach are his Violin Partitas and Sonatas; I love them so much that I have been tired of them for awhile now, and so I am very happy to have discovered Telemann's wonderful music for solo violin. Excluding piano, I can't even name that many pieces for solo instruments...

    Building off of Alypius' previous threads, and using the same language/guidelines: Let's bring it to the present in his honor: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE...
  11. Keyboard Instruments
    I have been considering trying to do a solo piano performance later this year (I have never done solo piano performances, but am an experienced performer), but I have a few questions about it. How good do you need to be to consider doing a solo piano performance? Is it fine to be a reasonable...

    We have all heard Bill Conti's "Gonna Fly", the theme from the 1976 movie "Rocky". To my admittedly musically ignorant ear the initial trumpet solo sounds classical, and nothing like the rest of the theme. I dimly recall hearing a classical-music-radio announcer comment once that the next...
  14. Solo & Chamber Music
    Hello guys, how can you define chamber music exactly? For example, can WTC or Goldbergs or English Suites etc. kinds of solo keyboard works or solo violin sonatas & partitas be defined as "Chamber music"? Or Bach's concertos, trio sonatas?

    Wondering what the best solo piano works are from this period of time.

    My favorite countertenor has to be David Daniels... too bad he hasn't gotten any solo discs out lately :(. Any other favs here?
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    Just curious, what's everyone's favorite concerto or piece for soloist and orchestra? My top three are: 1) Weber's bassoon concerto I'm going to enter with this one into a competition coming up soon. It's my type because it's cheerful, quick, lively, and very dramatic at some points and...

    Hi there, I have found this piece of music while cleaning up my collection (, but it has no name, artist name or composer. It sounds to me like a movie soundtrack, but that's about as far as I was able to go. I also search the web for music ID sites, but all wanted...
  19. Non-Classical Music
    I've wondered what the title of this song is for the past couple of years, ever since I saw it as a seven-year old (I'm now twenty-six). Would anyone out there know what it's called?
