  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. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi everyone! Just joined :) So, as I begin to delve more into classical music, I've been looking around the internet for what people often suggest as the "best" recordings of various albums/suites/scores. This is important for me, as I'd like to find just one, specific version of various albums...
  3. Vocal Music
    Hello all! I am a college senior, tenor, and am putting together a recital called "Songs of Home". I have plenty of suggestions in English, but am looking for ideas in other languages. If you have any songs, or cycles, that would relate to the concept of home or traveling or going back to some...
  4. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    So obviously it's Jazz (Randy Newman's specialty), but is there a specific genre of Jazz where I could find something similar to the part ranging from 2:47 (the start of the clarinet) to 3:23? This is the theme for Mike's character in the film, and I love this style of instrumental music...
  5. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    Let me just say that this game has some of the best music I've ever heard from a video game. (The game's great too)...
  6. Classical Music Discussion
    I think Saint-Saens is right on the verge of becoming my new favorite composer. A day or so ago I heard the Alegretto from his Clarinet Sonata and have fallen in love with it. It literally made me cry. Anyways, I'm trying to find pieces similar to that opening movement. The features I love so...
  7. Classical Music Discussion
    First let me clarify, I'm not new to Classical music. I've been listening to it for years, and have in the Tens-of-thousands of tracks in the genre. I've always known of Bruckner, but never really got into him. I have heard some movements from his 1st, 4th, and 9th (yes I know it wasn't...
  8. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I am looking for suggestions for excellent performances of La Damnation de Faust. So far my favorite has been Ozawa/BSO/TFC (1973), Pentatone reissue. Thanks! I did some searches through the site and through Google with site:www.talkclassical.com and couldn't find a thread specially discussing...
  9. Solo & Chamber Music
    So I'm thinking about getting a nice set with the 4 concertos for piano. Any suggestions?? I have seen a couple of editions with Ashkenazy playing the piano. Are they any good?
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    I've just written this little post on my blog, and was wondering if people agreed with my selection, or if you have other suggestions. Warning, not only classical, but didn't know where else to publish. http://musicophilesblog.com/2015/07/09/top-10-music-that-gives-me-goose-bumps/
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi everyone, I have been listening to various classical pieces for the past 6 months. I have no musical background nor basic musical knowledge, but I love classical music—indeed, these days, the only music I listen to. Please give me suggestions to explore more. I'd like to appreciate the...
  12. Opera
    Hello everyone. Being a fellow amateur composer, I wrote a theme and variations on Non Piu Andrai a while back, and it has been my biggest hit on YouTube (probably more for the name). But anyways, I really enjoyed writing it because it's such a catchy and fun melody and nearly perfect for a...
  13. News, Concerts and Events
    Okay so for my Music Theory class we are required to attend one concert. There are two suggestions to choose from http://nmphil.org/calendars/zoo-concert-gershwin-crazy-for-you-saturday-may-16-2015-8pm-rio-grande-zoo-2/ and...
  14. Classical Music Discussion
    Haha, I know I'm being a little specific here, especially due to a shorter number of minor-key pieces in this era, but what are some of your favorite Minor-Key Concertos from the Classical Period. This is my favorite era of music, and I'm particularly fond of minor-key pieces, so what are some...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    I know that each composer has their own unique flair, but I discovered Weber not too terribly long ago, and the more I hear the more I'm enjoying his works, particularly his concertos (and not just his Clarinet ones). So I was curious if I could get some suggestions as to a few composers who...
  16. Non-Classical Music
    I've become obsessed with a piece of music lately by Michael Nyman called "Bird Anthem". I've listened to some of his other works but nothing else comes really close to me (the closest I have found is "Water Dances" from his album The Kiss). Anyone have any suggestions?
  17. Non-Classical Music
    PLEASE READ ALL BEFORE RESPONDING! This could technically go under the film score forum, but I'm just doing it here. These are two of my absolute favorite pieces, and they both have a very similar feel (in my opinion). The first is "The Scare Floor" by Randy Newman, from Monsters Inc. And then...
  18. Orchestral Music
    Hello, New to this forum, so not entirely sure if this is the right place for my query. I'm conducting Water Music in June and would like to include timps but cannot find a part that makes any sense with Handel's score. If anyone has any suggestions where I might find this (or has experience...
  19. Classical Music Discussion
    Hello everyone. I really enjoy hearing music making use of exotic scales, such as the Phrygian Dominant scale, and other gypsy scales. But I'm having a difficult time finding instrumental music that makes use of these types of scales. I suppose it's music you'd hear in like Aladdin, because it's...
