  1. Classical Music Discussion
    The 3rd movement of Jacques Ibert's orchestral work "Escales" came up on random play yesterday and for the first few seconds (before the strings came in) I thought I was listening to something by Steve Reich. Anyone else have examples of music that can (momentarily) disorientate the...

    Could someone please help to identify the background music in the first 2 minutes from the following link? I can't put my finger on it? At first i thought it might be Beethoven, then i thought it might be Mendelssohn, and now for some reason i thought it may be Schubert?

    Just thought I'd ask.
  4. Solved Cases (archive)
    Hi, I've been on here for 30 minutes and have learned so much. I would greatly appreciate help in identifying this. I hear it every day and it is driving me nuts just being able to hear only 6 seconds of it. I want more! LOL It plays in the first 6 seconds 0:01 - 0:06 Here is the link: At...

    Just heard this on the radio and as Touchemoulin has no threads, I thought I'd post it :)
  6. Strings
    With the failure of my previous thread asking for outfit recommendations, I've been told to go to real shops and try the violins instead of buying online. I completely agree with the suggestion (I'm just used to online shopping nowadays), so I compiled a list of string specialists in London. I...

    What constitutes music? What constitutes not-music? What aspects can be teased out - acoustic, psychological, rules, no rules, control, random, aesthetics, physics intention, process, objective, subjective... Are there universals? Are some or all constituents culture- or time-bound? There...
  8. Orchestral Music
    I am quite sure that a few "Favourite Mozart Symphony" threads have already been posted, but I did not want to unearth a random one just to say that my favourite one is number 36. I thought that this poll is somewhere between this forum and the Community forum, so feel free to move it there if...
  9. Opera
    I was absolutely unimpressed when I first listened to it, but I thinK I've changed my mind. It's really growing on me. It's far from the self-indulgent and joyless undertaking so many thought it to be (in my opinion). What say all of you?
  10. Musicians
    I saw a thread about playing string instruments. So I thought what about us wind, brass and percussion players. I play the bassoon.
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    This is just an idea a had a while after the String Quartets thread started, so I thought I'd wait until it reached 100 before suggesting this. There's a Modern Classical Music recommended list, but I assume that excluded neoclassical and film music, and included 21st century. I might be wrong...
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    This I suppose is a broader and hopefully less controversial thread about what YOU, the PEOPLE would like to see more of in classical music concerts when it comes to repertoire. This ain't a thought experiment or anything, or an authoritarian "should," but rather just an expression of our own...
  13. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Do you think that music is ultimately a mean of self-expression or is the artist "simply" a vehicle for the spirit of the age? How about other art forms? Paintings, literature, etc. I have always thought it was the former. I do appreciate reading quite a bit.I've always thought that honest...
