Continued from here. Welcome! This thread (and the 70 that have preceded it) is for all things that relate to Classical Music. To access any of the old threads, please click here. Going forward, this will be the only thread needed, as a Gort has informed me that we no longer need to limit threads to 1,000 posts. This should make following this thread a bit easier, as we will always be here, no new threads. In addition, it will be easier to search for prior discussions. Beginners are especially welcome in this thread. I hope that everyone will feel comfortable 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, respectful and knowledgeable members who will be glad to help you out. Feel free to post what you're listening to, recordings you recommend, recent classical purchases, classical concerts, classical works, classical composers or classical performers. Please discuss audio hardware, music formats and software audio players (such as Spotify and Tidal) in threads dedicated to those topics. I suggest the thread Best Hardware for Classical Music for audio hardware discussion. And as always, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of the regulars (you know who you are) that continue to make this thread an enjoyable, civilized and informative experience! You guys are still the best!
