    Today it was excerpts from Carl Maria von Weber`s 'Oberon'. What lovely music!

    Earlier, it was an excerpt from Holst`s 'The Wandering Scholar'. Odd to hear opera in english, when you`re not used to it!

    Wow; busy busy, Kromme!

    Am currently listening to Magyar Abrand, Hungarian Fantasy for violin and orchestra by Franz Lehar.

    Charming work! I don`t know who`s on violin, but it`s great.

    Coriolan Overture by Carlos Kleiber-Bavarian State Orchestra.

    Was Carlos a demigod or something because as far as im concerned Furtwangler,Karajan,Walter,Klemperer were at the humanly possible top of the conducting yet Carlos's Coriolan outclasses theirs.What freshness and spirit.Unbelieveable

    PS:Thanks Youtube!!!

    Yes indeed; lots of good finds at youtube. I`m going to check that one out, Kromme.

    Suite L'Arlésienne numéro 2, mvt 3 by Georges Bizet. There`s that lovely flute solo.

    Strauss – Johann II, that is – on my iPod to and from work, on the grounds that I'm in an exceptionally excited mood, after having booked tickets for next Saturday's performance of Die Fledermaus by the Glyndebourne Touring Company at Sadler's Wells.

    In the evening, Mozart's concert arias, followed by Haydn's 103rd (the 'Drum Roll'), then Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade and some Bach toccatas and fugues – the latter of which bring back memories of a concert in the Westerkerk in Amsterdam during the Prinzengracht Festival a few years ago.

    Tickets to Die Fledermaus- that sounds great, Sybarite!

    Symphony in F, 'Triumph and Peace', 2nd mvt. by Koscak Yamada.

    Nice, but I`m not sure about this one yet...

    Now it`s the Prelude from Massenet`s opera 'Werther'. Pretty heavy so far. In a good way, of course. Wait, it`s lightening up now... This is good.

    Two versions of Mozart's requiem one by Sergiu Celibidache-Münchner Philharmoniker and another by Riccardo Muti-Berliner Philharmoniker.I liked Muti much more in Sanctus and Benedictus and slightly more in Dies Irea but the rest Celibidache is more sentimental and his slow tempos really helps him in giving a spiritual performance

    The second movement of Symphony No.3 'with organ' by Camille Saint Saens. Lovely.

    What classical?

    Hi,

    None. Perhaps that says as much as listing what I listen to.

    Even though I studied classical music for years (first in Chichester, then at London University), I rarely choose to listen to it. The only exception to this general rule is French music around the turn of the nineteenth century (Ravel, Debussy, Satie) and some of Mozart's work. Occasionally I listen to my own - but that is an even more rare experience than listening to Ravel.

    Your question provoked a memory. I remember sitting in a class listening to Schubert songs. Interesting as they were, I simply could not wait to leave the classroom and resume listening to Thomas Dolby songs. I listened as lecturer waxed lyrically about the musicality in the Schubert (he almost looked as if he was in pain). But when I put on my Walkman, I just could not see how Schubert could compare to the music that I was listening to at the time (in terms of musicality, impact or listenability). Maybe it is sacreligious to say this, but that is how I felt.

    This week I thought I'd do something about this. I took out 'Amadeus' to try to interest my children in Mozart. I thought the scenes in the film explaining the beauty of the music might interest them. The result? Not interested - they were more interested in listening to Elvis Presley......

    Perhaps the most interesting question is "why?" Why do I now choose not to listen to (or write) classical music after studying it? What turned me off it? What turns my children off it? What turned me (and my children) onto other music?

    Has anyone else had this experience?
