1  Preliminaries / Greetings / Re: Is this excellent forum 'dying' ? on: June 07, 2018, 11:11:14 pm
One thing I like about this forum is that it is totally driven by the contributors.. we don't have a moderator posting topics and then arguing with the members about what is or what should be..  it is somewhat like sending a message out into outer space and getting a response months or weeks later... but that is the beauty of the forum....  enjoy !!

Funnily enough I was just about to post on a new topic when I read your comments Smiley  Never mind, I can so I shall............ Grin
2  Little-known music of all eras / New recordings / Re: Unknown Martinu on: January 14, 2018, 08:36:01 am

Please remember our second rule and stick to Martinů, about whose music it is assuredly possible to say a great deal more. Thank you members.

I didn't see anything about that posts about Shostakovich were not allowed??!?

They are allowed, but in moderation, because he is certainly not "unsung" is he. What are not allowed are copyright recordings of performances of his works. Personally I cannot abide any of his wearisome stuff, but that is beside the point.

Just a reminder to members: please don't forget our rule 2:

"No discussion of the personal characteristics or motives of fellow members - courtesy must come first."

As is stated on our home page, this forum is devoted to little-known composers, long-forgotten compositions, rare non-copyright recordings, and discussions of the arts.

The man Shostocovitch does not really qualify.

6  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Links to videos of compositions by little-known composers on: July 25, 2016, 01:53:59 am
Personally I would have no objection. All forms of commercialism - buying and selling - seem wrong to me; not activities to be supported. So please feel free to do whatever you yourself feel right. The more (high quality) links you post the merrier! And there are many alternatives to Mediafire; is just one example.

(Sorry for very very late response.)

Adding to David's dilemma, I see he has music posted under Germany and Austria here at A&M.

Thanks for pointing that out JR. I have inserted a note to that effect in the Austrian music department.

"The Bin" is advertised as the correct repository for threads which do not fit neatly into any of the other categories listed. I do not take it to imply by its rather awkward title that such threads are "unworthy" in any sense . . .

Precisely . . . so I've changed the name to "miscellany."

9  Various / Miscellany / Re: Composers and "Morality" on: March 14, 2014, 07:49:27 pm
I think this should have been in the Bin 

True. And now it is!
10  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: Abuse of Dr David Wright on: March 09, 2014, 01:01:58 pm
In view of our rule number two, I would like to ask Members contributing to this thread in future to refrain from using the words "you," "your," "yours" and "yourself." Doesn't the House of Commons have something similar? I count no fewer than sixteen instances in the preceding post!! I hope it can be edited. Thanks. . . . And let's all warmly welcome our new Member!
11  Little-known music of all eras / Discussion of obscure composers / Re: David Wright's article on Rob Barnett on: January 21, 2014, 04:42:28 am
A master of the ad hominem, you, - not inappropriate on an internet forum I suppose.
Inappropriate on this one though; here we eat our cake with a fork!
12  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: 250 Piano Concertos on: January 13, 2014, 10:50:20 pm
. . . it sounds sooo romantic. . . .

Be that as it may, it is not by any stretch of the imagination a piano concerto . . .
13  Little-known music of all eras / Downloads discussion / Re: Turkish Music - a question on: December 29, 2013, 01:34:26 pm
Hello Wiktorio30, and welcome to the forum!

If you want to put the mp3s here, good. You may. And we thank you! (But not mp3s taken from commercial CDs, please.)

OR, if you want to put only links to other sites, that also is good; and we thank you for that also! Perhaps putting links to other sites is easier for you at first. But the choice is yours.
14  Various / Computers and Programming / Re: Is there an email digest available of all new posts? on: December 03, 2013, 12:46:28 am
There seems to be no obvious feature of that kind. But have a look at the SMF for Free support forum:

The question may have been discussed there.
15  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: Medtner in Oxford on: November 01, 2013, 01:28:24 pm
It's rather a strange link, because of the square brackets embedded in it, and so simply clicking on it doesn't work, unfortunately. But I have experimented with it a bit, and I discovered that replacing "[" with %5B, and replacing "]" with %5D seems to do the trick, so it should be working now. Anyway, good luck with the concert!
