  1. I actually use those to mark my study scores, books etc. I don't mind one of the colors being pink so why would you?
  2. It was time to up my headphones game so to keep company AKG's K702 Reference and K271 Mk II and Sennheiser's Momentum 2.0, I got the mighty Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 Ohm cans matched with Swissonic's HAD-1 High Performance DAC/headphone amp. Match made in audiophile heaven indeed! JW Live In Vienna now really, really does sound like the very next best thing to being there.
  3. Received my copy of Live Edition today. I have the Blu-ray/CD combo and last year's regular digipak CD but I still love this one since it helps me in reliving that unforgettable day - no need to turn on the TV and the blu-ray player, I just put my headphones on, be it home or on the go, and listen to this baby Surely this has been discussed before but I can't find where and when exactly - does anyone know if they took most of these CDs (and Blu-ray) performances from Saturday's or from Sunday's concert? (I was there on Saturday only.) Probably they also combined both where it was
  4. Received mine yesterday after almost three months' wait - and Friday is one mighty fine day to receive such fine merchandise! For anyone interested, here's my short first impressions "review": the score arrived perfectly packaged and protected. The book itself looks wonderful; engraving and printing are first-class. Since UK has left the EU, I had to pay import costs and Slovenian VAT, all of which raised the complete price of this score to almost 100 EUR, making it one of the more expensive scores I own - BUT I daresay it has been worth every cent since I'll now be able to finally
  5. And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time The greatest gift they'll get this year is life Where nothing ever grows No rain nor rivers flow Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

  9. https://www.classical-music.com/magazine/issues/christmas-2020/ In the Christmas 2020 issue of BBC Music Magazine, we meet the iconic film composer John Williams to reflect on his illustrious career in Hollywood, his concert works and the thrills of conducting the Vienna Philharmonic Merry Christmas! In this month’s issue, we meet the iconic film composer John Williams to reflect on his long and prosperous career in Hollywood, some of his greatest scores and concert music and his thrilling forays into conducting.
  10. By the rivers of Babylon There we sat down Ye-eah we wept When we remembered Zion.
  11. Does anyone play/has anyone played Train Sim World? Would you recommend it? Or if you have any other train simulator to recommend.
  12. I must say that I find this approach to determine whether you like a pianist or not a bit funny - you make your decision based exclusively on two minutes of music by a single composer - or did you actually mean the most famous 1st movement? In my own 25 years as a musician, I learned that broadly speaking, at the end of the day there's no such thing as "too quick" or "too slow" in the music (excluding those most obvious, notorious and greatly exaggerated deviations), there's only different interpretations - and all of them may be fascinating for one reason or another. One of the most famous ex
  13. Rediscovering the good old Ropeway Simulator 2014 these days, having finally bought a new gaming PC after almost 9 years. Great fun to play and being a huge fan of ropeways, I LOVE that game! With all graphic settings maxed out, I think it actually doesn't look all that bad even in 2020. Also, playing through the CoD: Ghosts campaign for the first time and installing Battlefield 4 after that.
  14. Been a fan of the series ever since probably around 1990 when I saw my first F13 film. Jason gave me quite a few nightmares back then and I remember repeatedly checking before going to bed whether somebody was lurking under my bed after seeing Kevin Bacon's demise in the first one I'm even a proud owner of the 3D poster of the first one! My favorite movies are no. 1 and no. 6 but I love the music even more than I do the films which is why I was EXTREMELY happy back in 2012 when I managed to be fast enough with my order to obtain a copy of LLL's box. Even after all these years, I listen to th

  16. So far, I've only had the time to listen to a few most obvious ones (Moonlight, Appassionata, Pathétique, Waldstein), but I've been very happy with what I've heard so far. Been Say's fan for 15+ years, already heard him live many times and has not yet disappointed me.
  17. A piano genius from Turkey. His own performance of his own most famous and beloved composition:
  18. One of my all-time favorites! Great, great music and a fantastic release by LLL. Get it while you still can! I wonder how much this will fetch on the used CD market after 5 or 10 years ...
