Quote from: vers la flamme on April 23, 2023, 01:58:30 PMExcuse my ignorance; I have heard the term but do not know what it means exactly (though listening to his overtures, of course, I hear them). What makes a crescendo Rossinian?
Quote from: Lisztianwagner on April 23, 2023, 02:44:32 PMIn the Rossinian crescendo, a theme is repeated for some lines, growing more and more in intensity and starting at the beginning with few instruments, which then increase progressively in number every time, to arrive at the climax of the crescendo at full orchestra.

Quote from: ritter on May 15, 2023, 11:22:56 AMI suppose he'll find Strauss' Elektra particularly soothing...
Quote from: Brian on May 15, 2023, 11:57:26 AMSpeaking of which, the Dallas Opera is performing Elektra in early 2024. Perfect date night?
Quote from: vers la flamme on June 18, 2023, 02:44:14 PMI'm considering going through my music library and listening to every single 20th century violin concerto that I have: either that and nothing but, or say, one or two a day over the course of however long it takes me to get through them. Someone talk me out of it... Has anyone ever done this kind of concerted genre binge-listening? I guess the idea came to me after I realized how many great ones there are, and how not familiar I am with the majority of them.
Quote from: Brian on June 23, 2023, 12:25:35 PMI'm pretty sure I did a 20th century piano concerto binge listen a few years ago. Another very rich field. Only a few months ago, I went looking on streaming services for nonets combining string quartet and woodwind quintet. Shouldn't be any reason why a "listening project" couldn't be a genre focus rather than a composer or performer focus!We used to have a member named Don who only listened to Bach organ works for fifteen whole years, which is the standard you should measure yourself against anytime you feel your genre listening might be crossing the line into insanity
