    Funky Music - FounKation - Marcus Nalgaber - Guitar Solo Improvisation with D'angelico Excel Mini DC

    That is some impressive guitar music, though I have never been a big fan of jazz. Here is some funky music I like. It is queued to start about 2:38 where the guitar solo (two guitars) starts and goes on for a couple minutes.

    Wagner opera question

    I think there are swome instrumental pieces associated with Wagner's 15 hour long musical drama called Der Ring des Nibelungen.

    Any folks here have this opera? What set do you have? How do you like it? I have Tchakarov and Gergiev sets. Both follow the Shostakovich orchestration. Shostakovich tried to orchestrate close to what Mussorgsky would have done had he finished the opera before the bottle finished him. The...

    My first post

    Hi, was excited to find this site. It came up when I was researching Boris Godunov, my latest opera excursion. I delved into classical in the 1980s and then was pretty much out of it for a long time. About 2009 I discovered MP3 players and proceeded to pursue ever disk I could find for my...
