That's what I thought you meant. I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't burn. Maybe the files are wet.

Will they dry if I blow on them?

Seriously, was it that you had trouble unzipping them?

That could be the problem, I'm not totally sure about this archiver I've been using. Hm.

Seriously, what happens is that when I right click on it the Burrn program opens up. I usually slip the file in the Burrn program and click start burning. But with these, they just don't go into the Burrn. Here's a message I got from a more savvy computer user than I:

The files Manuel sent you are a movie file (avi is a movie format) divided into 2 parts. I can send you more detailed instructions when I get back  - essentially, you can make a DVD or Video-CD out of these, though it won't happen in one easy step...

But my friend is away right now, so I'm still waiting. And the last sentence is just what I feared :P

I think if you download these files, they will work fine: (these were from beclemond, not Manuel)

http://rapidshare.com/files/51934123/Mahler_2_Pt_1.zip.html mvmts 1-3
http://rapidshare.com/files/51941873/Mahler_2_Pt_2.zip.html mvmts 4 and 5

I am burning mine right now.

Will try. BUT: it's not the same piece of music... ::)

This is Mahler 2 (who's conducting?) and Manuel's were of the Turnage Trumpet concerto ;)
And of course I have to wait 115 minutes to download part 2. Skata !!

I'm sorry, it has been now confirmed I joyously send all type of files to everybody, but the lack of information on how to play them makes it a very disturbing experience for everyone.   :P

@Lilas Pastia,

when you something like this:

Quote
http://rapidshare.com/files/58499516/Giulini.Bruckner.9.rehearsal.avi.001
http://rapidshare.com/files/58438401/Giulini.Bruckner.9.rehearsal.avi.002
http://rapidshare.com/files/58458076/Giulini.Bruckner.9.rehearsal.avi.003
http://rapidshare.com/files/58475927/Giulini.Bruckner.9.rehearsal.avi.004
http://rapidshare.com/files/58486115/Giulini.Bruckner.9.rehearsal.avi.005

It means the original file is in avi format but it was split into five files. Once you download all of them you need to run Hjsplit (here is the Windows version) to join the files*: the original .avi file will be created from these others.

*In the main screen of Hjsplit you click the JOIN button, you should navigate through your disk and choose
the file with .001 as extension.


You may find .rar files sometimes. Those files don't need to be joined with Hjslplit. By unzipping the first file you will get the whole set decompressed.



I think Boulez conducts that Mahler.

Ever heard Neschling?

Quote
Conductor: John Neschling
Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo (Sao Paulo State Symphony
Orchestra).

Cláudia Riccitelli, soprano
Mariana Pentcheva, mezzo soprano
Coro da Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo (OSESP Choir)
Coral Lírico Municipal de São Paulo (Lyric Choir of Sao Paulo City)

Recorded in July/1999 in the Sao Paulo Hall.

Bit-rate: 192 kbps

I have a great idea. Why don't we have a thread in the Beginner Board that gives simple explanation about how to download, unzip, join, use and burn all sorts of types of files?

Just reading the above makes me think: is there a Nerd Board? This sounds like advanced stuff to me :P

Dear Manuel, I really appreciate the effort. But I'll have to get into that kind of rocket science veeeeery slowly.
And yes, I have the Neschling Sao Paulo Mahler 2 on disc ('t was  a simple mp 3 file - THAT I can manage :D). But it's waiting in the wings until the Mahler bug stings - so many Bruckner recordings, so little time ;D.

You'll find music to download at this new site (only visible and downloadable if you register however, which is free).

Methinks your experiences here (and perhaps elsewhere?) prompted you to create your own forum:

Quote from: Rod Corkin over at ClassicalMusicMayhem
Regarding 'mayhem' the idea is that topics that would be hounded out as unacceptable at other forums will be encouraged here (eg the anti-establishment notion that Handel was a greater composer than Bach, something I wholly agree with) ...

But these days people seem less keen to argue any point or discuss artistic merit. These are sad times. All we need is a few opinionated people, that is enough to fire the others into action.

I spent 10 years at two other more popular forums than this before I even knew GMG existed. But now I have ideas of my own and I want to manage them myself. The idea is for a form of presentation focusing more on the music than chit chat, encouraging the use of music tracks to illustrate points rather than mere monologues. Also it will be a free platform for anyone with anything to say, however radical, even if the management disagrees with it. The management style will be completely different to the popular forums currently on the net, and lots of music tracks there for members only (you can't even see them unless you register). If I can get the publicity it will be a success. It depends if I can find enough people who want something more out of CM discussion than the usual chit chat. Why not join up and try it for yourself. What have you got to lose?

Chit chat is dialog.  Your idea for using music tracks is great... in theory.  But in practice it will be too time consuming and tedious for people to track down, upload and link samples for every little point they would want to make.  I think that we'll see  people just using the forum for sharing music instead.

Hold your horses!  I infer from your post open hostility towards the other music forums, this one included, and an implied allegation that the admins censor what they disagree with.  That is highly untrue!  And secondly I am very skeptical that someone who is obviously not neutral, has an ax to grind that starts a board with an agenda will act totally cool and unbiased.

I have no idea who you are, but I can guess that you're pissed.  I wish you luck in getting your board off the ground, but you don't have to advertise it by putting down other boards, especially putting down the message board that you are using for free advertisement, it really doesn't get anymore hypocritical than that!!

Well have a look around for yourself, I've only been going a week but there enough topics going for the moment, but you won't see most of the music tracks unless you register, they are invisible to non members.

Some people outside of Beethoven forums seem to find my opinions rather unpalatable. And I've seen enough people barred at CM forums in recent years that I would have kept on-board when I was a moderator years back. PC madness is strangling discussion. Heck I've even got non other than Robert Newman on my books already! Why everyone hits the panic button at the mere mention of his name is beyond me. He's good entertainment as far as I am concerned, even though I disagree with many things he has to say.

On the contrary I was the epitome of calmness when I wrote the above post. I've been involved in other peoples projects for over a decade, now I've got my own ideas for something different and want to get them on the web, whats wrong with that? My opinions relate to CM forums across the board, I think they have to loosen up a bit, I made no reference to GMG directly. But if anything the tone of YOUR message sounds rather aggravated. I'm quite happy with my Mrs sitting at home with a beer, about to put on a Columbo DVD (I've got all 7 series). What that says about my taste I don't know, but just one more thing...

I never meant that you were merely temporarily enraged, I know that clearly it's a deep seated resentment.  As for the rest of your post please don't peddle your own romanticized version of yourself, we will be our own judge of your character thank you very much. :D

No bassoon tracks here, but currently Bach v's Handel harpsichord tracks, some Handel opera and oratorio, Beethoven v's Mozart's piano/wind quintets. And a fancy new front-end...

Rod, could you please stop spamming this sticky? Promotion of your site is NOT its intended purpose. >:(

I'm locking this thread for the time being. My apologies to others for the inconvenience.
