    Anyone watch Siegfried on Sky Arts yesterday? Bryn Terfel was on there, playing the Wanderer maybe. Didn't catch all of it >_>

    Marvellous. Got to love that old skool poise.

    I've been looking at a lot of Beethoven recently as I have to write a score for romeo and Juliet set at the turn of the C19th. I'm going to do a Michael Nyman style with a mixed wind group - maybe 6-8 players. Finding it hard to find wind chamber music that is contemporaneous as models. So far I have loads of Beethoven (string and piano as well), Gossec, Cherubini, Dvorak (stretching a point) and a couple of Englanders, Attwood and Stroace.

    Any other suggestions?

    Was depressed, put this on, now **** ain't so bad.
    I'm sure I'm not the only one who uses music as a "panic room" to escape to when they're feeling down .

    Hi, could anyone please recommend me some good classical music to listen to while studying? A relaxing, not-too-loud music would be good I really like Nocturnes - Chopin. Is there anything similar to this?

    Thanks :grin:
    music with a steady and firm beat has been known to make you concentrate harder and thus aid your studies but if you like the more romantic and lyrical music, then there is definitely a large selection to choose from
    - Chopin's Barcarolle
    - Schubert's Impromptu No. 3 in G Flat major
    - Liszt's third Liebestraum
    - Saint-Saens' the Swan from his Carnival of Animals
    - Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor, 2nd movement, his Auf Flugeln des Gesanges, and his Songs Without Words (Op. 53 No. 1, Op. 62 No. 1, Op. 19 No. 1) most of his Songs Without Words are beautiful, lyrical and very relaxing.
    - Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, 2nd movement, and his 7th Symphony, 2nd Movement
    - Elgar's Salut d'Amour
    - Dvorak's 9th Symphony (New World), 2nd Movement
    - Ravel's Le Jardin Feerique from his Ma Mere L'Oye
    - Phillip Glass' 5 Metamorphosis
    - Mozart's Oboe Concerto, 2nd Movement
    - Schumann's Fantasiestucke No. 1
    - Tchaikovsky's June Barcarolle,

    I usually listen to Mozart's piano sonatas and Bach's suites, Art of Fugue and Beethoven's Piano Concertos when studying because I prefer a more light and steady environment

    Have fun listening!
