Quote from: arpeggio on September 09, 2016, 02:36:58 PMOne 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 ideaMy 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.

Quote from: Rinaldo on September 09, 2016, 03:27:00 PMHenrico Albicastro's 12 Concerti a Quatro, which nobody seems to give a damn about, so I'm probably mad when I call this work a baroque masterpiece, on par with the greats:

Quote from: nathanb on September 10, 2016, 03:50:19 PMAs a side note: I'm always thoroughly happy and amused to see how much jessop name drops any great composer he's only just discovered. The guy cherishes every new thing he finds in a very inspiring way.
Quote from: arpeggio on September 09, 2016, 09:31:46 PMI am all of the time running into Baroque composers that are not among the big three (Bach, Handel and Vivaldi) whose music I enjoy listening to.
Quote from: jessop on September 09, 2016, 08:37:31 PMI find the vocal writing to be delightful in particular. Having heard it only once, i recall being very attracted to the orchestration and found the pace thrilling (especially during the first three minutes and similar moments to it). Do you like it as well? I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.
Quote from: Rinaldo on September 10, 2016, 04:56:00 PMSame here, but they usually don't blow me away like Albicastro's concerto did. Last time a lesser-known baroque composer stopped me in my tracks was William Lawes.
