    • What Classical Music Are You Listening To?
      Exactly. And sometimes I don't mind dealing with it like that. But sometimes I do. As a musical philosopher/conceptualist, I am totally into him. But there's more to music than just philosophy and concept. If all you had to to was think (or not think...)...That's an excellent destination point, but a horrible starting point. imo, of course.
    • What vinyl are you spinning right now??
      First spin of a new-to-me LP: My buddy Ken Dryden had an extra copy of this LP, and he was kind enough to give it to me. Thanks Ken! 
    • What Classical Music Are You Listening To?
      That's a tough one. Most "accessible" recommendations would be the S & I for PP by Ajemian and various "early" percussion works. I think that to get deeply into Cage you have to share his aesthetic philosophy of randomness to some degree. And that's far from a common preference. I had recordings of some "classic" instrumental performances like Grete Sultan's Music of Changes (Wergo) and Irvine Arditti's Freeman Etudes (Newport Classics) but didn't care for them. I can get into Roaratorio if in the right mood. I generally enjoy the late "Number Pieces", but frankly haven't found it necessary to acquire many recordings thereof. Don't know if you'd care for them; maybe you could try some samples/clips. These are some "number piece" recordings I like:   The latter is really great (oop but maybe you can buy it direct from Goldstein), and if you don't like the Cage you at least have an excellent Feldman recording. This is an intriguing new number piece recording I intend to buy but haven't yet heard (waiting for USA release): Two^2 is different from the "standard" number pieces (which involve time intervals and stopwatches), and allows more performer discretion re. tempi.
