If you search (youtube) with something like HYMN APOLLO ANCIENT GREECE, you'll find all of the musical fragments now extant of ancient Greece. In the 1970's there were exactly nine of them, as listed...

You are not alone. I listened to it only once and decided it was the last one. The pianist was to blame, perhaps. I founded it so heavy! I once heard young people enjoy symphonic music and that the...

Youtube stinks.

What a bad place Youtube has become over the years. Recently watching a picture, duration 76m, strange duration for a picture. They're generally over 90m. The cause? The speed has been incremented....

I have always said, in great cyclic works, first movements are generally the best part. This is a valid example I think. Well, last year I download the...

You mean it is not CD-DA (compact disk digital audio)? I had a Microsoft CD containing the music from The Rite of Spring and a lot of sort of games based on the score. Two of the tracks did not...

There is always a predecessor, it seems. Well then Tchaikowsky with his 6th was a plagiarizing Haydn, I'd never have thought. I can well remember that, in the case of Brahms' 3rd, ending almost just...

57 octaves below middle C? It would be nice to have the beginning of the Firebird played that low! Only it couldn't be heard.

The history of Germany in the time of Beethoven.
