Fpr a cheapskater like me, Youtube is an endless treasure trove. It makes up for more than 90% of my listening sessions this year.

It's also a great way to self-promote or promote talented loved ones!

I'm sorry..but Tatia frightens me a little bit... lovely performance though!

I discovered Ohana's 'Cantigas' on You Tube. I cherish my old ERATO-recording ( with Isabel Garcisanz). But it is great to see the work performed!

I have to admit, the same thing happens to me sometimes. As much as my music collection is an important asset to me, I gotta keep exploring more and more, lol
Some days I've gotta go "Look Alien, you've payed valuable money and spent lots of time getting this collection together, why can't you just damn listen to it!"  :laugh:

Youtube is a godsend to classical music fans. A friend of mine swears by score videos.  8)

Even the New York Times has a weekly "youtube classical music finds" digital column!

Does anyone else read this as "You Tube, the world is a neanderthal"?

No?

OK.

Thread duty, then, I guess. I've been at a place in Zagreb that has a wide-screen tv. And as listening to music on headphones is fatiguing, I've been seduced into turning on the set and living with the tiny (tinny) sounds of the tv speakers.

Youtube.

It's interesting to see what the youtube programmers know and what they don't know. How they choose the items in the left column is interesting. On a Prokofiev roll awhile back, I chose Yugi Wang playing the 3rd. And now whatever else I choose--Simon Steen-Andersen, Bruno Maderna, Andrea Neumann, Martin Tetreault, whatever, there's Yuja Wang playing Prokofiev's third. There's one other thing that's as ubiquitous, Mvravinsky conducting the 6th symphony. Why those two among all the other things I've listened to, I don't know. But it's interesting.

Also, I just remembered. Whenever I get too far afield, into turntablism or other live electronics, it doesn't take too long for Novak's Slovak Suite to show up. It's as if Youtube is telling me, enough of this noisy, grating, crackly electronic stuff. Don't you want to listen to some nice Novak, huh? Don't you?

Well, no. No I don't. I like the Slovak Suite alright, but it doesn't wear well. One listen every five or six years is more than sufficient. If I want late Romantic Czech music, then Suk is my guy.

Still, it's nice to know that auntie Youtube is looking out for her favorite nephew, eh?

I think youtube's "suggested videos" on the left column (surely you mean right?) uses deep neural networks to find recommendations based on your activity. Heady stuff...deep neural networks are at the core of current AI research...

Haha, of course I mean "right." (My other left.)

So the deep neural networks think I should give Bill Schuman's 10th a listen. No matter what else I call up, it keeps throwing that one into the right (RIGHT) column. Nothing else by Schuman. Just the 10th.

And I've never called up any pieces by Schuman to listen to. Maybe the previous tenant of this apartment was a big Schuman and Yuja Wang fan. Hah. That must be it.

Never mind my insistence on listening to Otomo Yoshihide, it's gonna keep putting the 10th in the column until I click on it. Which, be fair, I will do some day.

Oh yeah. I've seen that table music thing live. That was fun.

2009 was a good year for me. Over 300 concerts that year, including this one.

Thanks for the lovely memory. :)
