If you find threads in the old GMG, which is slated to go poof! in a few weeks' time, which you think are interesting and are worth our while, then please post the links here.

Thank  you, Marc. And to Brian and Karlo, as well. :)

We can get an extension, can't we, since the board was down for so long? ;)

The quoted Luke Ottevanger posts on page 1 of this are so illuminating on Chopin's mazurkas that I copied them into MS Word. Strong recommendation.

I guess we can relax -- for now -- with the news that old forum won't be going away soon. :)

I'd be relaxed, old forum or no old forum.  I never go visit it.  I'm sure I can't be the only one?  ???

Interesting contribution, thanks a lot.

Of course you're not the only one.

I myself don't even visit a huge load of threads on the new forum.
Imagine that.

It's rather funny though, that you bother to visit this particular one, and even post in it.

Originals of current threads
Karl Henning's HQ
Ottevanger's Omphaloskeptic Outpost
Todd's new music log


These are crucial for all sorts of reasons, mainly because the works discussed are of great interest and value!

Rereading this old thread I notice, that I in the very last post of the thread by mistake wrote Codex Faenza but meant Buxheimer Organbook .
It is true, that Codex Faenza contains some of the oldest keyboard arrangements, but the arrangements of the DuFay and Binchois works are contained in the Buxheimer Organbook.

I am with Ray.  I play my wine philosophy here.  Too many new posts that come through to worry about the old ones that I have already been part of.  If a topic disappears, just ask the question again.  Folks here are friendly, so I never worry about topics that are rehashed.  Save Gurn's Haydn thread, I believe we can always recreate.  Plus with new members coming on all the time, it may be wise to so anyhow.  Just my take.

With all due respect, a large amount of posting that happens these days is that of album covers, which I'm hardly interested in and which, IMNSHO, hardly adds anything of true value*. (Okay, maybe I'm missing good posts in certain threads I don't follow... ::))

Some of the lengthy discussions or debates that you can find in the old forum or even in the older threads of the new forum is hardly seen now. Not every thread can be answered with "Richter, Serkin and Schnabel".


To put you argument in a different way: why bother with music from 100 of years ago, when you have more than you can handle today?




*Seriously, the "it makes me go back a recording I haven't heard for a long time" card is overused. :P

I guess I have just not found myself looking back.  There are a few threads I will re-read here (EMC, Chopin Recordings, etc.), but not on the old GMG.  Maybe if I did, I would benefit from it.  Like I said, just my take. 

If there is one thing that I do not care to read, however, is the posts that review a cd, but the review is just lifted from the web.  I am guilty of this as well and try to avoid it.  As far as posting album covers on the listening thread, you are correct in that they rarely lead to further discussion.  That is why I sometimes post my listening in a topical thread.  Probably should have put that last Benstein platter into his thread. :-[

Things you will miss if you don't visit the old forum: Gurn recommending recordings for Bach on harpsichord! :o
