  1. Classical Music Discussion
    There was a series of great threads, discussing and taking votes on Haydn's symphonies, ten at a time, curated by Ramako. I loved checking back on these as I made my way through the Fischer box. But now they've gone - or at least, I can't find them by searching 'Haydn symphony'. Do threads just...

    As per the Dr Who thread: Any takers? Farscape.

    A post on another thread reminded me that in the days of old i.e. the LP era, you didn’t listen to whole albums you listened to a side of this and a side of that. Ok maybe when it was new you did, but you quickly started to favor one side over the other. A bit like an evening spent listening to...

    When it comes to beer its horses for courses really One mans poison ect and I am loathe to upset anyone here who might be upset at having their favourite tipple harangued but I do say, whilst I will drink almost anything in the beer world, I draw the line at this. To Paraphrase Robert Falcon...

    No Copland thread till now?! I just came here to read the thread never expecting that might not find it! Anyway, he could be described as the founder of "the American Sound". So how about starting this thread with discussing your favorite recordings of Rodeo, Billy the Kid, and the Third Symphony?

    I thought I'd actually go ahead and start this thread.
  8. Opera
    Have wanted to create this thread for a long time, one devoted to an organized gallery of pictures of Maria Callas on stage in her operatic roles and her colourful life offstage. Since filmed evidences of her prowess as a singing-actress on stage are only few and far between, we have to content...

    So, I am not sure if I am resurrecting an old thread. I bring this up because books have always been a huge part of my life, and have a lot to do with who I am as a person. So, my question is, as you have probably gathered from my thread title what is your favorite book. I don't know if I am...
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    Some questions are just too huge to ask, but...what topics have we discussed here so often, and with so little profit, that saying anything further would be, well, you know. Obviously this thread may go on for a while. Awards will be given.

    Both composers wrote symphonies, piano music, operas, overtures, and lieder. They both spoke German and left behind a body of masterpieces that, through misunderstandings, reinterpretations, and the burden of historical events, has continued to survive and enthrall listeners through the...
  12. Opera
    (I looked for a thread like this so as not to start a new one, but could not find one.) "Where are they now?" seems like a kinder thread title than "Whatever happened to?" I admit to being curious as to where some of my favorites and not-so-favorites from past years (as well as "Hey! It's...
  13. Opera
    In my opinion Mozart was the greatest of all opera composer. His works breathe sheer musical genius with a melodic gift that is unsurpassed. However, the purpose of the thread is not to debate this but to comment on operas or parts of operas we particularly enjoy, together with notable...

    A place to thank sweet Figleaf for putting together the " winners of the TC most recommended CD,DVD" thread. Thank you Figleaf for all your great and hard work. :tiphat: :angel:

    So it is the 150th anniversary of Sibelius' birth. Many people (in particular Morton Feldman) said that Sibelius is ahead of his time, in e.g. the musical form and his symphonic idiom as supposed to Mahler. I don't think I really understand these discourses, and so could someone elaborate what...
