Anyone interested in starting a weekly listening thread/group
« on: January 31, 2021, 08:33:34 AM »
Been a weekly string quartet listening group running for about 9 months on another board - each week there is a rotation with one person getting a turn picking a work for the week then everyone discussing it.  Any takers for something similar here?

I like the idea. I'm wide open as to genre.

Actually, no reason to restrict it to any particular genre

Interesting idea, but not for me. I don’t like having any kind of regimented listening schedule. I really just go with the flow in my own listening. Some days, I’m in a ballet mood. Other days, all I want to do is listen to solo piano music. It varies day-to-day.
