Hello:

Les presento un foro para compartir música (de manera altruista, siempre) y debatir sobre ella; especialmente de música antigua (antiqva), hasta Monteverdi (más o menos).

I present a forum for sharing music (so unselfish, always) discuss it; especially early music (Antiqva) to Monteverdi (more or less).

this blog looks like some sort of scam uh... not very genuine and written to attract links, not a devoted readership... and if there's any ranking involved, I obviously disagree with it... but perhaps of interest all the same:

For those interested in classical recordings on ECM Records' New Series imprint, feel free to check out my ECM blog, which contains a growing number of reviews and short essays. I am currently in the process of reviewing every classical release on the label and welcome your comments and/or suggestions:

http://ecmreviews.com/

As of this posting, my most recent review is of Giya Kancheli's Magnum Ignotum, featuring the great Rostropovich.

Thank you,
Tyran

What do you think of my Blog?, my Blog is now one year old, and i wondered what people think of it on this forum, i'm quite biased for it, but would like to get an idea from anyone seeing it for the first time, my Blog is a personal journal of my listening activities, and yet it's nice to have an audience too, my Blog is roughly 75-80% Classical.

So take a look, http://octoruss.blogspot.com/ tell me what you think, im very much interested in, Questions / Improvements / Criticisms / Advice / Suggestions / Praise even, feel free to comment, i won't get upset if you don't like it, i just want to get a feel for what others think.

Well my tentacly challenged friend, I like the style and layout of your blog, and your side notes give it gravitas.  Your present seems well informed.
Weakness:  Spread over too many genres, but its always good to read intelligent, well informed reviews.

Your blog is positively lovely! Kudos on the Elgar recommendation, by the way. My only suggestion would be to change the white-text-against-solid-black layout, if possible, as it gets tiring on the eyes rather quickly. Otherwise, blog away! Now that winter break is ending and a new semester awaits, I'm afraid I won't be able to match your listening rate of 3 to 5 discs a day until summer rolls around.

A recently started blog by a very inspiring Czech scientist & bona fide music connoisseur: Smell of Sound. "Read what I'm listening to," writes the author, "365 recordings for 2011." Audio is provided as well. I don't understand where does he find the time to thoroughly listen to all those recordings AND blog about them as well, but he used to work at CERN, so there might be quantum tunneling black magic involved.

I'm make my contribution, too.

My site is www.classicalweekly.com.  It started out of my realization that as I explore more and more music, I discover fantastic works that I've never heard of before; and then I say "I can't believe I didn't know about that work before".  So now each week I post an excerpt from a work that I think is interesting for some reason (with my non-professional musician comment), as well as a YouTube video of an example of the work.   I found that people new to classical music find it much more accessible to hear a single movement first as opposed to listening to the entire work and then waiting for the proverbial "good part"

I also have on this site an eBook that I wrote, "A Digital Workflow for Classical Music and Opera CDs: Creating High-Quality Archives of your Classical CDs for iTunes, the iPod and other Management Software and Players."  You can get an excerpt at www.classicalweekly.com/eBook

Please check it out and let me know what you think (or if there's a work of classical music that you think that people MUST hear).

Thanks!

Hi,
I am doing some experiments producing classical music digitally. I invite you to listen some examples on my musicsite (http://klassik.s-fahl.de). It is all CCC, since it is just my joy to do things like that. You will find mostly Pianomusic, but also pianochambermusic, a few string quartetts, orchestral compositions and even some Works with orchestra and choir. I also do like to make rarely heard and recorded composers audible this way. You might find on my page compositions never recorded bevor, but naturally I also trained my knowledge in "digital interpretation" in trying to make recordings of traditional repertoire like Bach, Haydn, Liszt etc. Working together with a frined, who produces samplelibraries of historical instruments I also enjoy to produce recordings of music that historially fits to the sampled instrument. You will find a whole section on my site just for historical keyboards. My just finished Project was to produce Recordings of tha 120 canons and fugues of A.A.Klengel, which is absolutly incredible good music. So if you are interested, just listen. best

I ran across this yesterday, while doing some Beethoven research:

This appears to be a one-man labor of love, and it's probably the most interesting and wide-ranging LvB site I've yet seen.

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.

Que, very interested in seeing this one. I think the Google translater might work good enough. Unfortunately it's coming up with a blank page. I'm using IE9.
