  1. News, Concerts and Events
    Is there anyone on this forum in or near Fort Worth? The wife and I are going to the Sunday matinee performance, August 30, at Bass Hall. It would be great to meet a kindred spirit from the TC boards.:tiphat:
  2. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    In light of several polls posted here lately, I am forced to post my own. How about that Beethoven fella? Is he worth the praise his flacks and media people churn out? What say ye?
  3. Opera on DVD, Blu-ray and CD
    I have this one (and listened to it 12 times over the weekend :)): Which is very good (Clips from the remaster edition), but I am not a big fan of either Pavarotti (but I do like his eight high Cs in La Fille du Regiment), and Freni's voice seems to heavy or dark to me. I would prefer a...
  4. Orchestral Music
    I have the Jochum box-set of Bruckner's 1-9 symphonies which I love. I've heard about his 0 00 etc. symps :confused: Are these just studies or are they worth investigating for their own merit? Thanks, Dave

    Just saw this: and curious if anyone has ever used them before? I love iTunes but curious to see if anyone think it's worth the extra expense for "higher quality" sound? :)

    What rare recording or unusual pieces would you like people here to know about that they aren't familiar with? Here is one: Korngold's Die tote stadt worth it.
  9. Classical Music Discussion
    I see that a Gauguin pointing has just sold for about $300 million. Wow! What piece of music can match that? Original manuscript, sole rights, whatever. Why is a painting worth more than Beethoven's 9th? Speculations welcome!
  10. Recorded Music and Publications
    Just to inform you guys, selling off used CD's is bad. They used to be worth so much more, particularly pop and rock and rap but now they are not worth much used. Just like $.25-$.50 per disc for the compact discs. Very terrible devaluation of CD collections. Which is why when I buy CD's I am...
  11. Off Topic Pub
    Is there a major difference between what you get from the free version to the premium?
  12. Opera
    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.
