Classical Music for Every Day


#1

My wife bought me for Xmas a book written by a friend of hers

It’s rather good - it simply has a page per day, with a classical piece (mostly single movements) described. Most have a connection to the day itself - composer’s birthday, say - and it’s very diverse, covering all periods and composers I had never heard of.

For a commitment of ten minutes a day it’s well worthwhile.

#5

#6

Got this from the wife, after dropping far too many hints.
@AmDismal how did you get on finding the pieces?
I have tidal but I think it’s not up to much for classical


#7

its not up for a lot of stuff which is why i don`t use it


#8

Such as?


#9

Tidal isn’t great for classical searching. The library is actually fairly large, and you can find most stuff just fine, but if you want a specific performance it’s sometimes tricky.


#10

Any tricks you can pass on?


#11

Not really, the tagging is so bad you can’t redeem it through clever searching. But you can usually find the piece you’re looking for, even if a specific performance might be elusive.


#12

Yes very little berlin school of electronica such as gert emmens or ron boots etc. Got hundreds of albums in this genre and very little on tidal so i stick to spotify

No Gert Emmens on Qobuz either. I had thought that being European Qobuz might have done better, but no!
