    How is listening to Hans Zimmer close to listening to Classical?

    Hi Corno,

    Your reply to Fredrik Sjoelund reminded me of Victor Borge's humour - simple yet lusciously effective.

    Cheers,

    Giovanni


    Today I listened to a CD entitled "Bouquet de France" performed by Bernhard Leonardy on the world's finest organ at St. Sulpice. A thoroughly delightful program adeptly interpreted on a ravishing instrument.

    Today it's been Johann Hummel's Rondo "Retours a Londres"

    Nice, Beethovenian music if a touch lightweight

    Hi there JohnM,

    You certainly have listed some interesting works there- from what you have mentioned, I only know the Beethoven (although not that transcription) and the Chopin, lol! Oh well, one can`t know every work...

    Btw, feel free to introduce yourself on the intro. board; then we can give you a proper welcome!

    Hi Rojo!

    You should really try to have a listen to the transcription, it's beautiful and I'm firmly of the opinion that it's more effective than LvB's own transcription of the concerto for piano and orchestra. As far as I am aware there is only one commercially available recording, by Michael Collins on DG records c/w Mozart Clarinet Concerto (chestnut maybe, but still lovely)

    Today it was Sviatoslav Richter playing Ravel`s Alborada del Grazioso, followed by Chopin`s Revolutionary Etude. Wow, very impressive. Great technique, flawless playing. I found these two pieces suited his playing style well. Or vice versa.

    Right now I'm making my way through Bach's Brandenburg Concerto's, after just finishing Beethoven's 7th and 8th symphonies.

    I'm listening to Chabrier: Piano Works at the moment. The current track is Improvisation Andantino. It's excellent.

    Today I listened some baroque music (J. Leclair, B. Ferrari), Renaissance music, romantic music (G. Merkel - 4 hands organ Sonata in C minor ) and classical music (Mozart - Requiem in D minor).

    Today is Beethoven Piano Sonata day, I started at the beginning and we'll see just how far I make it. Currently the 4th mvt. of his 4th Sonata in Eb.
