One of the biggest mistake a newbie makes is starting a thread that already exists. So I checked this out so I hope this a new idea
My music library is based on breath instead of depth. Instead of fifty recordings of Beethoven's Fifth I would prefer to have fifty recordings of different symphonies.
Since I am always on the lookout for new composers and music one of my favorite threads in another forum is "Pieces that have blown you away recently". This is a thread where a person can post their experiences with a new work they have never heard before or a new composer.
This would not be a thread for a person who already has fifty recordings of Beethoven's Fifth and he just acquired his fifty-first. This thread is for a person who had never heard Beethoven's Fifth and his initial exposure to it was awesome.
I will start by talking about recent discovery for me.
I subscribe to the BBC Music Magazine
. One of the there CD's had some piano music of Ravel and Faure. I am not a fan of Faure. When the Faure train left the station I was not on it. This recording of some of his barcarolles and nocturnes blew me away.
