    Who loves King Crimson and what are your favourite albums, line ups, players and eras? I bloody love Lizard, so strange and out of time, nothing sounds like this in rock. Probably their most classical and also jazzy, the only word for it is "rococo". Next Larks' Tongues in Aspic, one of my top...
  5. Today's Composers
    Since I've written in popular idioms my whole life as an occasional hobby, all my attempts at "classical composition" are still works in progress to one degree or another.

  6. Solo & Chamber Music
    I grew up with Gould's interpretations of the 6 partitas. Recently, I discovered the late Arrau's performances. It did take me some time to appreciate Arrau playing Bach in slow tempi (for example the Gigue of the first!!!), his thick sounds, and a bit excessive uses of pedal. What are your...

    John Cage is unfortunately too often made fun of or neglected... and this is a huge mistake. He wrote some powerfully meditative music. His sensitivity towards musical timbre, his integration of pitched and unpitched sounds, his narrative medium of chance... Here are some outstanding works that...

    Handel, or Händel was born in Germany, but moved to London in his twenties. To my ear, his music sounds incredibly English. I'm no musician at all, so forgive my rudimentary describing that his Dixit Dominus sounds 'stiff' 'stilted' and 'rigid' - Like the cliche stiff British upper lip! His...
