Gotta listen to Vivaldi's Four Seasons Winter before the scenery disappears. Version? Gil Shaham. Deutsche Grammophon.

A pleasure to meet you all. I suppose I should list a few composers which I listen to frequently and greatly admire.

Erik Satie: Truly unique; subtle and somewhat mystical.

Gerald Finzi: His works speak emotively well/honestly.

Gustav Mahler: There is a lot of depth in these pieces.

- Kind Regards, J.S.

Two good resources...online listening WDAV and WCPE. Somewhat different personalities, but I like them both.

My sister is having some friends over. They make A LOT of noise, talking very loud and so on, which makes it difficult to relax and focus on anything at all. 

So I just plugged in my headphones and started listen to some Wagner. I can highly recommend Pilgrim's Chorus from Tannhauser.

I just started it, so can't really offer a full opinion, but it seems pretty good so far.

I'm another choirman and organist and pianist. Great love is Elizabethan and Tudor music - great composers like Gibbons, Purcell, Byrd, Tallis, Morley, Dowland. Been singing in our village church choir here in England for 66 years!, from treble to tenor and now bass. We have a good choir and a fine Harrison 2-manual organ. Also enjoy Victorian Parlour music. My Grandma played piano to accompany the silent films at a cinema in London in the late 1890's/early 1900's. I like to play some of her "party pieces".

I'm an eclectic man when it comes to classical music I love composers from every era like Josquin des Prez, thomas tallis, Purcell, Haydn, Berlioz,Wagner, Mahler, Schoenberg, Yann Tiersen, Philip Glass and Steve Reich.
I perform in many styles as well as write in these styles as well hopefully I'll be able to upload some of my stuff soon
