    I have a great interest in the Baroque period and particularly that of William Boyce in the English Baroque. Boyce tends to be obscured from popular classical because he has been relatively eclipsed by Handel. There are many however, who still appreciate his music as much as I do. Do we have any Boyce listeners?

    Did anybody have the pleasure of seeing Michael Ball woo the crowd at the proms?

    My Mum caught it: the only comment she had on the concert, however was "ooh he's got really fat you know"....

    I went to a awesome performance of Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini and Mahlers 5th last night. The Rachmaninov was incredible, it was the first time I'd seen that piece performed live, Peter Donohue was astonishing on the Piano.

    Hello. I love classical music and my favourite composer is Chopin followed closely by Bach. However, I also enjoy Mozart, Beethoven, Handel, Schumann and Lizst. And for some reason, I have a fondness for French composers, namely Ravel, Faure, Debussy and Satie.

    OMG, you watched Peter Donohoe live?!! I have his recordings in one of the compilations. I like his Rach very much.

    I have 28 days to prepare a piano concerto from scratch. I can practise for up to two hours a day, but I'm only a piano player and not a pianist. Anybody have any suggestions for a concerto I could learn in that time frame?

    One of the hyden ones, or maybe one of the easier mozarts. I dunno, like you I am no Pianist, only a player :p: I have, of course, played a concerto in concert, Vaughn Williams concerto for two pianos, in which I played the second movement (the easy movement), and the second Piano (the easy part)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think I should add that, due to my nature, I would prefer the concerto to be in a minor key... :p:

    I think I'll attempt Bach's Keyboard Concerto #1 (Now I just need to find the score!)

    Look at the "fingering" he uses for the bass notes at 2:11 in this video! :p:

    Well, I like hearing him, watching videos is another matter... his technique is just so different from what I've been taught, it's slightly depressing watching him.

    No, you may have a point there. his Bach however is excellent.
