1  Little-known music of all eras / Coming broadcasts and listen-later links / Re: Parsival from Bavarian State Opera - SUNDAY 8th JULY on: July 10, 2018, 11:21:42 am
Many thanks for this link. I have downloaded it with Internet Download Manager. Three versions are on offer: very large, very very large, and tremendously large. I chose the first one, which gives a file 5.634 gigabytes in size, and took seven and a half hours to download.

Thanks for your interest, Geronimo. I've probably still got those files, so I will look them up and repost them. It may take a few days.

All the best, Gerard

. . . Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana". This work, she claimed, embodies "the toxic spirit" of its time. By implication she clearly believes it to be essentially "evil" since it appeals (she asserted) to our basest instincts. . . .

It would be more apt to say that of the Rite of Spring ballet.

I am thinking of starting a new music magazine. What do you think would be a really good name for it

New Music

5  Various / Miscellany / Re: What are the most annoying things about modern composers? on: August 19, 2017, 07:34:03 am
The single most annoying thing about modern composers is their giving silly names to their works of music, instead of simply identifying the form. Hundreds of examples of this can be found on the B.B.C.'s modern music programme. Some one once said something about the "land without music" did not he, and this business of the silly names is part of what he meant.
6  Little-known music of all eras / Notice of interesting concerts around the world / Re: The 91st season of the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra on: June 27, 2017, 06:52:08 am
You've left out the most important element of all these concerts: the names of the works that will be performed! I am not in the least interested in the identification of the players; in a concert of serious music it is the work that is the great thing. It is a different world from that of what is sometimes called "pop".
7  Little-known music of all eras / Youtube performances / Re: Hughes,Robert - Symphony in Three Movements on: June 20, 2017, 11:49:26 am
As so many times these days: the videos are not available to us 'Europeans' I'm afraid

Well I managed to get something by using a VPN; but although they call the recording a "Video" it is actually just a picture of the record cover!
Here are the three movements; please let me know if anything isn't working and I'll try again.

9  About music in general / Members' own compositions / Re: Narcissistic on: November 14, 2016, 07:34:20 am
It doesn't work for me, I fear.

I see a record cover, but nothing happens if I click on it.

I see the title "Narcissistic", but when I click on it, I just see a page saying "Anmelden" (which means "log in" in German).

I also see your name, and when I click on that I see you sitting on a box holding a guitar, next to the word "Subscribe" (in English).

I also see, below your name, a list of five "songs" (do they mean "pieces"?). When I click on one of these I see a small picture of a youth wearing boxing gloves - is that you too? - but still no music.
No, I am not  a boxer!  Is this the spotify link? It does a setup in German.  Try the  googleplay link; it should be fine.

No, still no music, just the jolly old boxing. The first you've heard of it, what?

May I be permitted to make a polite suggestion? Drop those useless Americans and their illiterate "songs" and money-grubbing attitudes. Try to upload your work to ulozto. Here is a simple way to do that:

1) go to ulozto.net
2) click on "upload files"
3) click on the box "I'm not a robot", perform their simple verification task, and click on "send".
4) browse to select the file or files on your computer which you would like to upload, and click on "upload".
5) your upload will start, and when it has finished you will see a link to the stuff you have uploaded. Click on "save".
6) All you have to do, finally, is to copy that link, and paste it into a new message in our forum. Then every one will see your link there, and will click on it to hear your music instantly no problems.

I hope this is of some assistance.

All that begging for "donations" by the plink-plonk school is rather shameless though, isn't it?

Ha! A new Beethoven. Thanks.

Well the word signifies "sensibility" in the Teutonic. Didn't Schumann write a song or piece with that name? I have recorded yours, since it is quite sensitively beautiful.

We may well though ask whether it is not for its composer rather than its auditors to "say" more about it? Compare a) the number of comments made by so many other people upon Brahms's fourth symphony with b) the remarks Brahms himself made or did not on the subject. Yet to which would one turn or go? And why?
