    Ok, what I mean is this. I really wish Schubert had written a piano concerto. Surely it would have been a thing of great beauty. Do you have any similar thoughts?

    Today I noticed one thing. We have a great thread on this forum on Callas's recordings, but that's it. I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can discuss and tell what new we have discovered on Callas and what amazes us today. Or maybe has for some time. And of course anything else...

    I am wondering if any of you wear activity trackers on a daily basis. How do you find them in general? I am thinking of getting one and the more reviews I read, the more I can't decide which one to buy. Also, I thought about why we couldn't just use our expensive smartphones and Google Fit...

    I heard her last night in Seattle and to me she is the real thing! She harkens back to the golden age of singing in my youth back in the 60's.
  5. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I've been searching in vain for quite some time for a copy of a 1977 of Dvorak's Rusalka sttarring Gabriela Benackova and directed by Peter Weigl. The parts of it that are available on YouTube are beautiful and I'd love a chance to watch the whole thing. If anyone knows where it's available or...

    Does this mean they are just being polite and don't want to offend you? Even though you said it's ok to be harsh? How does one get an opinion anyway? I've been writing music off and on for almost as long as I can remember, and only my family seems to give me any sort of opinion one way or the...

    Why is it that we listen to the same thing over and over again? I never feel like trying out a piece no matter how much people suggest it, I've only heard 2 Beethoven Symphonies and 3 or 4 of Mozart and I always listen to Beethoven's 5th and Mozart's 40th. Even though when I bump into something...

    "Les Patineurs" was a very early recording my parents gave me one Christmas when I was maybe 5. What a beautiful melody! It still fills me with delight. A couple of years later at a carnival, this clown had a popcorn maker/barrel organ that played it which intrigued the hell out of me and I...

    Been watching Bonanza via Neflix starting from season 1. Dissapointed that they only have two seasons ; it ran for 14. My favorite is Adam. Cool, calm, collected - always does the right thing. I believe Adam left the show after 11 years-it was never the same after that. So who was your favorite...

    Has anyone tried this music player? https://ponomusic.force.com/ccrz__CCPage?pageKey=search&searchText=Haydn The bars at the bottom of the selections show the quality of the recordings. I wonder just how good this thing is. Also is 44.1kHx/16bit better than itunes quality?

    I do not have any clips but i can remember the name of an old piece i played in high school some years ago.... It was called Eclipse Of Mars. But for the life of me i can not find a single thing about it online, nor can i remember the composer, it had EXTREMELY awkward note spacing throughout...
  13. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Not that this is actually my first totally random poll, but it might turn out to be the first in a series. To get one thing out of the way, there is no good explanation or excuse for this poll (or its successors, should there be any). Another thing out of the way, this is not a very serious...

    Right now I'm on a huge Wagner binge and saw this documentary on DVD: Worth getting or not? Kinda love the whole thing as I nearly have the CD's of Solti's cycle.
