  1. Sorry if this has been asked and answered elsewhere but does anyone have an mp3 of the studio version of Cars Can't Escape (the one that Wilcoworld was giving away for free) that they could post? Thanks in advance!
  2. Some Glass favorites: Einstein on the Beach Kronos Quartet performs Philip Glass (string quartets 2, 4, 5) Violin Concerto (with Gidon Kremer: essential) Music in Twelve Parts Symphony No. 3 Mishima soundtrack Dracula soundtrack Piano Etudes Glassworks Etoile Polaire I also highly recommend Bruce Brubaker's recordings of solo piano music by Glass (which include pieces by John Cage and Alvin Curran).
  3. How are there so many posts so far and nothing about classical music? (Whiskeytown? Camper van Beethoven? Sigh....) The sonatas and partitas for solo violin by Bach are the obvious place to start.......any recording really but violinists like Gidon Kremer, Hilary Hahn, Arthur Grumiaux, Christian Tetzlaff, Thomas Zehetmair, David Oistrakh, etc. are all worth checking out -- you can't go wrong with any of these..... From there, Beethoven's violin concerto is highly recommended (Itzhak Perlman recording on EMI with Giulini conducting and the Chicago Symphony I think?). There are also famou
  4. Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom: "Days of Mars" How did I go so long without knowing about this? Dios mio.

  8. All you fans of Steve Reich and Gavin Bryars and "The Sinking of the Titanic" absolutely *must* check out a composer named John Luther Adams and an album of his called "The Light That Fills the World." I cannot recommend it strongly enough. Here is one of its three movements: http://goodvibrato.org/?p=49 Some other favorites/recommendations Takacs Quartet - any string quartet recordings by Beethoven, Mozart, Dvorak, Haydn, Schubert, etc Arditti Quartet - amazing modern/contemporary music group, their recording of Webern/Berg chamber music is great Leon Fleisher - a pianist with many won
  9. Nice thread. The classical peeps are definitely in the minority here but are an enthusiastic bunch. Here is a half-classical blog I maintain with lots of mp3s of favorite recordings: http://www.goodvibrato.org I have way too many favorites to name a top 10 but here's a few off the top of me head: Glenn Gould: Bach French Suites, Goldberg Variations, WTC, Preludes Partitas & Fugues Radu Lupu: Schumann & Schubert piano music Keith Jarrett: Handel & Shostakovich Piano Music Terry Riley: "In C" (any version, although I have been enjoying the Bang on a Can reading of late) Wilhel
