  1. Classical Music Discussion
    I asked a question in a thread about Sibelius which applies more generally. It was prompted by an interview with Sir Simon Rattle and raises the question about the extent to which conductors' interpretations can ever be plain wrong. Here's the post and the link to the interview (thanks Becca)...

    Hello, Are there any good resources online for learning classical music history? I get physical books whenever I can but don't know of anywhere on the internet to go (except Wikipedia). Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section. Thanks

    This sounds like a troll question, but I promise it's not. I'm also writing from considerable ignorance about very recent music, so I look forward to others setting me straight. It just occurred to me that, in the last century, it's likely that everything you could possibly think of was tried...

    I had trouble saying Celibidache in fact when I first learned of him. I said celeri-dash-ee which was wrong. I know that Rachmaninoff is another name people get wrong... I even heard Ratch-man-nee-nog once over the phone. Facepalm. Any others that people get wrong?
