Steve, it would probably be simpler to convert FLAC to MP3 and not be hampered by a parochial format like AAC, no?

Yes, it would be much simpler to do this, but when he said iTunes format, I assumed .aac.

While I was cleaning up some of my browser bookmarks earlier today, I came across this one:

http://www.recitals.alexeisultanov.ru/

If anybody is interested there are quite a few recordings of Sultanov's recitals/concerts in there.

This is exciting for me, as I have never heard this composer.  :D

George, just remember to take your anti-depression meds. Oh...and give someone your belt before you begin listening. It's a good idea, too, to have a trusted person stand by to keep an eye on you that first time. (Suicide watch). Okay, you're ready now. Good luck.

8 was a breeze, I am about to put on 10, I'm guessing that is a bit more sucide-inducing?  ;)

Seriously, to me intense music helps me get through and validate difficult feelings, rather than make them worse. My girlfriend seems to avoid any form of entertainment that is "depresssing," as if we can avoid our feelings.  ::)

Okay, it's a small start, but another site has begun selling very high quality downloads. I found this after just a cursory glance: MusicGiants.

Although this was posted in the old forum (by Tony if I'm not mistaken), I found out that it is still available for download for those who did not, or who werent here:

http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/music/2006/12/gavrilov_on_chopin.html

Gavrilov's live Chopin nocturnes performance from 2006. Probably not to everyone's liking. But I listened to them again yesterday, and I like them very much. The op 15/ 1 and 2 in particular.

Can someone help me. I downloaded music, and some idiot misnamed all the files to have the wrong file extensions, and the files won't play. The solution is obviously to rename the files, but when I right click them, there is limited options, basically just to play the file not delete or copy or rename or anything. Is there anything I can do about it?

Have you tried clicking on the file(s) and pressing your F2 button?

Check that your files don't have more than one (dot) in there.  I have downloaded a few recordings where the file name is something like:

01 - Allegro ma non troppo.001.mp3

where it should read

01 - Allegro ma non troppo.mp3  (deleting the.001 bit) as an example

Take out the (dot) and the extra garbage before the .mp3

Its hard to say without seeing the file.  F2 should work, maybe?

Yes the problem is an extra dot, and f2 doesn't work :( The files named are ridiculously long and I have tried also to highlight the files and click once to rename and it just make a noise clink and does nothing. I guess its a worthless download.
