Continued from here Welcome! This thread (and the 31 that have preceded it) is for all things that relate to Classical Music. Feel free to post what you're listening to, recordings you recommend, recent classical purchases, classical concerts, discuss classical works, classical composers, classical performers, etc. Beginners are especially welcome. Feel free to post any questions that you may have about classical music and/or classical recordings. This includes requests for recommendations for recordings of particular works/composers, etc. We have lots of friendly and knowledgeable members who will be glad to help you out. It came up in the previous thread that it would be fun to post our favorite Classical finds from 2011, including new recordings, reissues and recordings that are simply new to us. I think this is a great idea! Here's some useful links for other people's lists for 2011: The Best Classical Music Recordings of 2011 - Posted by Alex Ross New York Times Gift List Washington Post And as always, I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to all of the regulars (you know who you are) that have made this such and enjoyable and informative experience thus far! You guys are still the best!
