Wow, this thread is quickly becoming my new favorite!!!   :-[  :-*

It looks like I might have found an outlet for part of my output, namely some of my CD reviews. Not going to jinx it, so I'll wait until I see my own on-line, before I blurt.

It should be high time for some positive discrimination...

Hmm, not sure if this is the right thread to bring up this topic, but here goes...

GMG has a nice folder for different composer with an excellent index. Why don't we have an similar folder for conductors and one for performers? Right now everything seems to be spread out across the forum based on themes, but would it not make sense to create (over time) a similar index specifically for conductors and performers? Just an idea....  0:)

Do you mean an index that would collect mentions of said performers or conductors? Or just for threads that are already dedicated to specific performers or conductors?

As a separate folder in the "Music Room" (just like we have the folder 'Composer Discussion' right now) but devoted to threads focusing on conductors and/or performers.

It annoys me that most melodie can be sung by male or female voice, but when you buy "complete melodie of so-and-so" each work is more or less arbitrarily assigned to a male or female performer. I'd like to buy the complete melodie of so-and-so where all songs that can be sung by a female are sung by a female. (This thought occurred while looking at my complete Melodie of Faure edition.)
