Classical Music Blogs or Personal Webpages

Please post links to intersting Classical Music blogs and personal webpages! :)

My first contribution - mainly of interest for those who read French... :-\

A very highly sophisticated blog, covering all aspects of art, but music in particular - with main focus on Early Music & Baroque. It includes reviews of recordings and samples.

   My  blog,  the  horn,  at  blogiversity.org, which  has  blogs  and  forums  on  a  wide  variety  of  topics, covers  all  aspects  of  classical  music,  and  is  aimed  at  explaining  and  mystifying  those  who  know  little  or  nothing  about  classical  music  but  would like  to learn  more.
  The  URL  is  http://www.blogiversity.org/blogs/the__horn/default.aspx
 
   You  can  also  just  click  on  the  upper  right  corner  of the  home  page  on  Recent  Blog  Posts,  or  reach  it  through  links  at  these  blogs :
  http://www.mahlerowesmetenbucks.blogspot.comhttp://www.horndogblog.com
or  http://blog.onopera.com  . 
 
   My  blog  covers  orchestral  music,  opera, chamber  music,  choral  works,
etc, any  kind  of  classical  music,  and   I  also  discuss  famous  composers, 
conductors,  instrumentalists,  singers,  music  history, elementary  music  theory, definitions,  classical  music  news,  recommendations  of   classical  masterpieces  for  classical  newbies  to  try,  classical   CD  and  DVD  recommendations,  classical  music  humor,  profiles  of  different  musical  instruments,  including  my own,  the  Horn,  descriptions  and  plots  of  famous  operas,  comparisons  between  classical  music  and  politics,  and  much  more.  I  hope  you'll  find  it interesting.  Please  leave  any  comments.

I'll be linking to my fledgling classical music review blog in my signature very soon, but here's the URL for anyone who wants a preview before I launch the site on January 1st 2009: www.aneverymanforhimself.com

Those interested in classical music blogs will find links to others from my site. ;)

Many interesting links already posted - many thanks! :)

Here's another Baroque "Jungle" run by an Italian (but you can navigate in English) - fascinating and totally absorbing.
Don't get lost! ;D

Blognoggle is a very good aggregator tracking about 100 classical music blogs, here.  Chris Foley maintains another aggregator that displays them slightly differently, here.

Hello,

I am sorry if it is in the wrong section but I thought it is the good one... I started recently a blog (non profit one so I am not advertising to make money) about 18th century music blog (well, actually more between 1650-1830, but 18th century remains my principal interest). I propose some music samples from good recordings. I invite you to check out.

Thanks

Handel.

Jusr a plug for my own blog, Liberated Dissonance, though given the compeition listed above, it's getting harder to see the point. 

Blog includes links to my music previews and non-musical, weekly newspaper column.

Bruce, I sent an e-mail to blognoggle, asking to be listed on their classical music page, but I never heard back. How do you get their attention?
