    I've just acquired a copy of Bizet's 'Les pêcheurs de perles', or 'The Pearl Fisher's. The recording features Björling and Merrill. Needless to say, I am very pleased.

    Hai peeps

    I'm new to the Society

    I like all types of classical music: Scarlatti, Handel, Bach, Vivaldi, Corelli, Pergolesi, Mozart, Haydn, Boccherini, Weber, Donizetti, Brahms, Chopin, Elgar, Holst, Bartok, Prokofiev, Debussy, etc. (I've probably forgotten quite a few )

    I hope you've forgotten Beethoven

    Nice to see some appreciation for Scarlatti, Corelli and Weber though.

    Yes I did forget him :rolleyes:

    I can't name any specific ones (I always forget what pieces are called! ) but I remember not liking it :rolleyes:

    If you've only been put off by hearing some of his later works, try the comparatively tuneful symphony #1 (with lengthy introduction modelled on Beethoven's 9th):



    and if you like vocal music, some of the early songs

    You'll probably like Mahler more as you get older. If you go to a Mahler concert you'd probably be able to count the number of young people there with your hand (though that might be the case for classical music in general )

    I can't believe he doesn't even like Mahler's Piano Quartet in A Minor .

    I don't really like much of Beethoven. But I do really like these two rondos.

    I just feel that most of his music is boring.

    I much prefer the 1st movement of that concerto. This is my other favourite Mendelssohn piece.

    Whoops, made a mistake; that is the first movement of his violin concerto. And yeah, that piece is great. But in my personal opinion, there is none who compares to the sheer brilliance and power of Beethoven in expressing the human condition.

    If you have other pieces to share, keep 'em coming!

    :eek: Beethoven is 'boring'? I've heard Bach and Mozart (wrongly) described as boring before, but Beethoven? What pieces do you have in mind?
