Classical Music

For something pleasant to talk about, I was curious if there are any classical music enjoyers here and if so, what song or songs do they usually have stuck in there head... or consider their favorite at the moment.???

Here is whats been going through my head since yesterday as I was floating on my back at Crestasee staring up at those magnificent mountains.

Re: Classical music corner

Good thread. Slightly off-topic: I'm going digital. Any suggestions on how to sort classical music in iTunes? By composer, performer (artist), or etc? If by composer it will mess up all the other non-classical music sorting.

I sorted stuff manually, created groups. But I think you attach a style to all pieces, then sort by style? Say, classical, electro, indierock..

Today it is this for me

Re: Classical music corner

This thread has inspired me to check out some stuff by an old friend. So glad he plays cello and not sax.

Was that for my benefit? Thank you very much!

And just to say I remembered what the word for "big gong" was - tam tam. Phew, that feels better!
Gong and tam-tam are actually two distinct instruments. The difference is that a gong is tuned to a certain note, while the tam-tam is not.

Re: Classical music corner

I'm reviving this thread after a year or so as I'm currently thoroughly enjoying Mozart's Piano Concerto #22 as a bit of early Sunday afternoon chill out time.

And this is the exact version I'm listening to.

Re: Classical music corner

César Franck, Dextera Domini. So beautiful. Listen at least up to minute 2, when all voices have joined. Not singing bass, it is so hard to wait, but when you are finally allowed to sing, it just feels so good.



No, this is not our choir singing, but just imagining to sing at Notre Dame - aaah!

Re: Classical music corner

I was cleaning up and cooking today to the Bulgarian National Radio Children Choir, really nice. Made me really miss my old choir, it' s interesting we share the same national folk music traditions.

Very nice, MC. And this one is from their neighbours from North of the Danube, although not folk music. I love our National Radio Children Choir.
