Re: Saint Saens Cello Concerto

Your Cello Concerto question is the topic for another form. As for your post-script, the piece that started my love for classical music was actually Schoenberg's opera Moses und Aron .

Re: Happy 200th Birthday Frederic Chopin!

Chopin is a very good composer. The polonaises are my favorites. but it's hard to beat a Victor Borge Minute Waltz. :D

Re: Happy 100th Birthday, Samuel Barber!

Barber is great. Vanessa is my favorite of his, but also like Knoxville: Summer of 1915, and his Excursions for Piano and Summer Music Quintet is great as well.

p.s. Barber's home is 5 minutes from where I live. Pretty cool, huh?

Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

Gerald Finzi - Eclogue for Piano and String Orchestra. I don't care much for Finzi's songs, but this work of his is great. Him, Frank Bridge, and Britten are my favorite English composers.

Re: What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

Larsson: The Winter's Tale - Epilogue. I don't think he is a particularly good composer, but this movement is phenomenal. It ends too soon, I think. I'm always longing for more at the end.

Re: Fast, Beautiful, Fun Piano Pieces Needed

Perhaps maybe Mendelssohn's Variations Serieuses, or the easier Rondo Capriccioso?

Re: Finest Melodies

Started working on Saint-Saens 1st Piano Concerto, in D Major. The first movement's main theme is so simple, yet so powerful, it really pushes the piece forward.

Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A Majr, K. 622. David Shifrin on clarinet, Gerard Schwarz conducting. Nothing beats the classics. :)

Mis-placed Wagner file

I noticed the music "Song of the Rheinmaidens", listed as being in the fourth scene of Rheingold is actually from Act 3 of Götterdämmerung. If someone could please move the file to the appropriate location, that would avoid any confusion. Thanks.

Re: What is your favorite aria for a coloratura?

Would Gliere's "Concerto for Colaratura in F Minor" count? I know it's a stretch, but it is a nice piece of music.
