  1. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    How is Rathaus, spiky and modern or more on the romantic side?
  2. Concerts: previews / reviews

    Tonight in fact!
  3. New Jazz Festival Balver Hohle 11-CD Set

    I got both of these, I was pleasantly surprised by some of the Czech jazz on 74-75.
  4. Bird's Eyes. How many volumes are there?

    Philology CDs seemed very hard to find in the US even they were still an active enterprise.
  5. Concerts: previews / reviews

    No live concerts in Baltimore/Washington until some outdoor concerts by the Baltimore Symphony in June, to say farewell to Marin Alsop. But the BSO plans a full 2021-2022 season.
  6. Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding make an appeal

    The Kennedy Center is presenting it in the coming season, not sure if they have had a funding relationship. Sonic Portraits: Iphigenia Sonic Portraits tells the story of legendary women through song in brave theatrical stagings. Iphigenia, co-commissioned by the Kennedy Center, is a new operatic collaboration between two of the most visionary and daring musical voices of our time: 11-time Grammy Award®–winning composer and saxophonist Wayne Shorter, and four-time Grammy Award®–winning bassist, composer, and vocalist esperanza spalding. Architect Frank Gehry, a luminary creative force of his generation, will create set designs for a production by award–winning theater and opera director Lileana Blain-Cruz that will play in the Eisenhower Theater December 10–12, 2021. Improvisation becomes a living metaphor for choice as compositional hierarchies are disrupted in Shorter and spalding’s adaptation of the Greek myth that is also an intervention into myth-making itself, and an intervention into opera as we know it.
  7. Ellington Small Groups on Columbia

    @AllenLoweScrew IP ownership, you should make these available!
  8. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    For those contemplating the digital release, be aware when you buy downloads from New World you have to download each track individually tediously.
  9. New previously unissued Horace Tapscott

    Wish I could get the vinyl only Tapscott stuff as downloads.
  10. New Sam Rivers and others on No Business

    Not sure why Dusty Groove never got copies, so I am ordering straight from the label. Glad to hear they seem to have no issue getting their CDs to the US.
  11. I've listened to everything that Vol. 1 of the book covers-- can't wait to dive into the rest when Vol. 2 comes.
  12. Erik Satie's Vexations

    I like the new Noriko Ogawa recording, she varies each repetition just a little so it doesn't get boring. 80 minutes flew by in fact.
  13. Orchestras in the Pandemic era

    Baltimore Symphony has been doing hour-long streaming concerts, with interesting off the beaten path repertoire. This is Marin Alsop's last year and it's such a kick in the gut to not be able to see live music. \https://www.offstage.bsomusic.org/en/bso-sessions
  14. Lafayette Gilchrist

    Gilchrist has several archived concerts on demand from Baltimore venue An Die Musik. https://andiemusiklive.com/
