    Is there a way for me to access this?
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    The lectures are sold here: http://www.teach12.com/ttcx/CourseDe....aspx?cid=7250
    But I wouldn't pay that much - they will for sure be on sale for much, much less at some time in the year (I have never paid full price for any lectures, always wait for their sales). When you buy the course via a download (as I did), you affirm that you will use it for yourself only, and not copy it to others. If it were purchased in DVD, CD or audiotape format, I don't suppose there would be a problem with sending someone the medium.

    lynnifer - only buy courses that are on sale. All courses go on sale during the year. I just look at the 'on sale' section. If you call the teach12.com people they are helpful.


    Raven - the movie 'Ten' almost spoiled that piece(Bolero). But it really is good and that video adds the pyrotechnics that is , well, missing in boring classical music. But if you like Ravel, check out his piano concerto with Argerich, I think it is on youtube. Good stuff.

    Just got back from the concerts today.
    Heard Bach violin sonata #1 BVM1001
    Chopin's - cello sonata
    Janacek - String Quartet Kreutzer Sonata
    Mozart - Dissonance quartet
    dohnanyi piano quintet - totally beautiful. I will get this on iTunes
    mendelssohn trio - crowd pleaser
    Great day to hear all that live.
    Okay,Hlh, So violin , viola, cello ? What do you play?

    About op.132 movement 3 being played at my funeral, the music is for those alive to really listen to it. My gift to them. To let them know I felt strongly about this movement and for them to be happy they are alive.. I won't enjoy it then, I probably won't hear it !

    THe last chamber music festival concert was last night.
    3 stand out pieces
    Brandenburg concerto #3 - at breakneck speed and joy and accuracy and ecstasy .
    Shostikovich - Octet - it is on youtube and worth listening too. The 2nd movement is insanity - a self portrait for me sometimes...
    Smetana - Le Moldeau - it was a piano quintet.
    Back to listening to the ipod .....

    rfbdorf - are you a fan of Brahm's horn, violin, piano trio? I read in your bio that you are a french horn player.....
    It is especially beautiful .

    Brahms' trio certainly is a nice piece, and quite playable, but I've always thought it has a feeling of sadness to it - very effective, of course - and the faster movements seem a little empty to me, perhaps because Brahm's romantic sound doesn't seem to fit real well with his use of the natural horn for the piece. I've never really tried to analyze that.
    It's extremely different from his friend Schumann's exciting concertpiece for 4 horns & orchestra, or the adagio & allegro for horn & piano - both of those strain the limits of playability, particularly the concertpiece, and I always feel a sort of thrill when hearing one particular spot in the concertpiece that requires that the second horn have lips and nerves of steel! Far beyond my range of talent, I'm afraid.

    Now only in a brass quintet, composed of other engineers. We've been together about 10 years now, meet every Thursday. It's a lot of fun.

    This is a list of the arguable top 100 chamber pieces of all time. I actually used this list as a tool to start my wonderful listening journey. I wondered if there were any opinions, glaring omissions, mixed up orders - or if someone sees something that I have to listen to right away !

    The Trout quintet would be my desert island disk. But I'm surprised to not see Dvorak's Serenade for Winds in the huge list.
