  1. The Classical Music Recommendation Thread

    A very fine modern take (2012) on a Mahler style symphony.
  2. John Williams' The BFG (2016)

    It looks like the special effects have been improved from what we saw in the trailer: https://www.yahoo.com/movies/cannes-report-the-bfg-is-giant-sized-visual-153716911.html
  3. General Harmony/Orchestration/Theory Questions

    I agree with you that the tenor clef is unnecessary in that passage. It is ultimately a judgement call to make the note identification easiest but it breaks this rule from Read's style guide: "The notator should avoid a frequent change of clef signs. If a few ledger-lines, or the brief use of one of the octave signs will suffice, that is preferred. It is better to use the clef change for longer or extended passages."

    I enjoyed this tone poem by a composer I never heard of before. Jiri Jaroch's Old man and the Sea. Some Vaughan Williams in it but also Jerry Goldsmith mystical and action music.

    Cool thanks. I found a green pickup service that will wipe the drive and green recycle itfor $35 or free if I drop it off. Thank you.
  9. The Quick Question Thread

    One of my computers is worthless (going for $25 on eBay) so not even worth selling since the shipping would cost about $75. What should I do with a worthless computer? Just throw it in the dumpster? Are there recycling places or give it to Good Will? Schools don't want it...it's too old.

    Why not D7(+9#5). That is D, F#, A#, C, F.
  11. STAR WARS general thread

    This looks like it might be interesting...a documentary about the extras from Star Wars IV called Elstree 1976.

    I still think she's HanSolo'skid. He doesn't recognize her because he shacked up with a one time fling. We already have precedents for this since he didn't recognize Shia LaBeouf as his sonbecause of a one off fling either.

    In honor of one of my favorite composer's birthday today (April 23, 1891), I present the clumsily titled "Cantata for the 20th Anniversary of the October Revolution". Happy 125th birthday, Sergei!
