Who's getting married? ;D

(*Thinks to himself*: Where else in the web did I see a wedding-themed list recently?)

EDIT: No, it wasn't in the web. It was actually the quiz in the February issue of BBC Music magazine. :)

Thank you for your welcome.  For some reason the month of June is associated with weddings, and so I got into the spirit of things and focused a part of my show on that noble tradition; actually I do that every year around this time.

And yes, seeing as it is acceptable in this forum I will post my playlist here weekly.  The only time you won't see it is on holiday weekends.  That's when this station regresses to its weekday format of rock, rap etc.  I have protested, but all in vain.

A great generalist blog with some insightful commentary on many guitar and music related matters.  Great for lessons, browsing, and general entertainment.

Hi, only joined this community yesterday, so i've barely begun to go through the various discussions on here.

My blog is called 5:4, you can find it here - http://5-against-4.blogspot.com/ - & it's dedicated to contemporary/avant-garde music, although other things creep in there from time to time (i have eclectic tastes!). One of the regular features on the blog is high-quality recordings from radio broadcasts (in FLAC & MP3 format), focussing on premières of new works.

I suppose I might as well advertise mine! :D

For the Ears is where I blog about the "sound-arts" (which I consider to be poetry and music) from a neuro- and evolutionary science perspective.

Polednice, all this time I didn't know you had a blog, and I didn't know the specifics of your medical problems.

I wish you all the best, man. Good luck!

Nice blog btw.

Forum members in or near San Antonio, Texas may find my classical music event calendar helpful. The link is http://classicalendar.com
The calendar list concerts of nearly all of the major area performing arts organizations as well as some lesser-known groups in the Texas Hill Country. Of particular interest at this time is the Beethoven Festival. Beginning January 6, 2012 and continuing until February 18, the San Antonio Symphony and Beethoven Festival partners will perform all the symphonies, all the piano sonatas, all of the works for solo cello, most of the violin sonatas, as well as many other chamber works. All of the Festival concerts are now listed at classicalendar.com.

A few features of the calendar are not obvious at first glance. Hover over an event to see the concert location. Click on the event to see full program information (when available).

I hope you find the calendar helpful in planning your musical adventures!

I recommend everybody to go here and search out postings on the dumbing down of BBC classical music, written by a very knowledgeable, former EMI executive:

I recently started a couple of new review sites: www.MexicanClassicalMusic.com and www.EnjoyNewMusic.com
The first is pretty self-explanatory- there's not much information about this neglected genre in English.

EnjoyNewMusic.com is for unusual transcriptions of classical music- whether it's different instruments or jazz/rock takes on classical pieces. One of my last posts is an in-depth examination of unusual versions of the Bach Chaconne, which you can see here: http://www.enjoynewmusic.com/index.php/2012/03/03/one-of-the-greatest-achievements-of-any-man-in-history-the-bach-chaconne/
Everything is linked to Spotify, Mog and Grooveshark wherever possible.

Hope you enjoy it!

I just bought the domain name fjhaydn.com . I suppose the next step is obvious. I will send out invites to the grand opening, although I expect it will be a little while before it is ready to go. Hopefully it will be a place that Haydnistos can go to gather and share information. :)
