I've been craving restraint so classical and baroque have become even more appealing.

Well, if you can make a credible argument that he is a Classical composer, without resorting to Newmanesque methods, then we'll allow him in. Otherwise, he has at least 10 threads already.... but hey, he had kids. Lot's of 'em. Pick one! :D

Heaven forbid, no! I'm glad he's Baroque. :D

But I can probably..., maybe attempt to give you enough reason to not prevent his mention here.

Well said.  JSB should probably just have a forum dedicated to him, or a Parent forum within "The Music Room"

Gurn, what's the period again? Do you count Schubert, Weber and Arriaga in or out?

In. I also count pre-Classical. Schubert is on the cusp, and so is Weber (well-chosen names!) but we give them the benefit of the doubt. And we like to consider how their music changed things, which is difficult if you can't talk about them... "Well, S&*^%$*# was interesting...." :D

I would rather crap in Gurn's thread. ;D


You have no shame, none at all. >:(    :)

I think you will be very pleased with those, Dave. I got them one at a time, took years. But I'm pleased with them even though they have been supplemented since. :)

Sweet, Dave!  :)

Yes, I finally dropped the cash on this one. I'm sure it will bring me much pleasure in my remaining years.

Yes, I've owned individual discs from this set. I think I still have one at home. If anyone wants it (in the US), let me know by PM.

If you go back to the first post in the thread, I tried to give at least a little bit of my reasoning. Anyone is free to agree or disagree, but that's just me. :)
