Classical Convert Website - Classical Music For Non-Classical People

Recommended Posts

Classical Convert is a website devoted to why you should listen to classical. It has a special page for beginners, a page devoted to composers, useful links to other classical bloggers, and tons of musical gems to listen to. Highly recommended. Here's an intro from the blogger:

Rap should not have a monopoly on being blasted from car stereos. Although classical music isn’t typically well suited to in-car listening — you lose the ability to hear about half of what is happening, and what you can hear is pretty wet and muddy — there are some pieces which shine when the volume is cranked up. This automotive appreciation is not your typical classical listening experience. Gone is the following of themes, the stealthy interplay of instruments; all the delicious subtleties are shot. You have no hope to hear what is really going on with the music when the windows are rolled down and the engine is revving a few feet from your lead foot.

But the pleasure of driving is visceral, and the appropriate soundtrack is feeling, not thinking. Parsing apart a piece is for headphones, for an easy-chair and mug-of-tea; not for rollicking and rolling down the roads. A good classical driving piece is still full of power even when you’ve skinned off the top of the music — when you’ve compressed the hell out of it. It’s probably already pretty fortè. It’s oozing rhythm. It’s got so much drive it’d be out cruising the streets if it wasn’t already in your car.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
