Anybody here likes classical?

Problem with classical is that what is available on p2p is more than often shitty versions of the classics, ripped from some "classic for noob' wall-mart compilation cd. Most of them are not labelled properly. Also, 128 is just not suitable for that type of music.

Anybody has some good quality recording ? Maybe we could meet somewhere. I have quite a few, ripped from my cds, high quality, properly labelled.

Anyway... my favorites : Dvorak, Beethoven (of course) - all the symphonies -, Belà Bartok, Wagner.

I have all kinds of classical music...and am capable of getting anything I want (music major access to music library...mmmmm....). I seriously have ALL kinds of classical music...I always get a professional recording of stuff I am performing (which after like six years of doing orchestral stuff is quite a bit) and plus that crazy musician word of mouth.

My faves: Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Hindemith, Copland, and BERSTEIN...oh man he is awesome.

Currently listening to one of the most beautiful pieces ever written:

Morten Lauridsen - O Magnum Mysterium

Give it a listen...I promise you will be moved.

If you are serious about downloading classical music, you should get emule and check out the verified downloads on a few sites.

The following links to pages on fileheaven.org are well worth checking out: you may have to register first but its well worth it. They feature a crapload of excellent classical downloads, many in lossless and all high quality rips, usually with covers included.

Another useful resource is newsgroups, in particular alt.binaries.sounds.lossless.classical - not all isp's carry this newsgroup though so you might not have decent access.

There are also some hubs on DC which specialise in classical music rips, if you have the patience and time to look for them.

Well, exploring a bit the back yard of that forum, I arrived here, and really don't know if after that time it is still in actuality, but anyway, if you get that post (or someone else!) you are welcome to PM me about any music CD or even musical parts you'd hope to have... I don't garanty I've got it all, but I may... I spent my whole life playing for the public, so, I'm used of giving music away for the plesure of myself and the others.

You for instance, mentionned Dvořák, I've got lot from him (symph, str quartets, overtures, Requiem, Opera... played by Czecks)... Bartók, I've got himself playing at many occasions (including home recordings)... but also most of his str Quartets, concerti (vln n°1 & n°2, pno...)... of course, many Barocks and classics, but only when played correctly (respecting what is written, and the correct way to do it according to the period!)... In fact, from middle-age till contemporary...

And appart of all that, lot of unknow masterpieces from unknown composers (Onslow, Litta, Woolett, Lekeu, Ysaÿe...)...

    • 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...
