They're only "flautists" if they're stuck up. :D

I'm a huge fan of Robert Schumann and Frederic Chopin. Schubert is pretty good too.

wow! there are people in here with classical interests!

awesome!

see, if one would call him/herself a flautist so one can charge an extra $50! ;)

What voice type are you, Sparkleystone? Do you go to school for music?

I am both a tenor and countertenor. I am being trained at the moment classically as a tenor. Yes, I am a music major :D

Well, I have sung parts of "Dichterliebe" and really enjoy that... I'm also into Broadway, particularly Leonard Bernstein (singing "Tonight" this term) and Gilbert and Sullivan. I sing baritone, for what it's worth.

I love that song! (Schubert) Isn't that kinda high for a baritone?
So, how can we make this thread more "itunes/ipod-oriented"?

I was thinking, with this "submit your recording to iTunes" thing, wouldn't every performer be able to record say the Schubert songs and sell them on iTunes? if the recording quality is okay... who needs a record label?

indeed, I think you can do that already using Mp3.com....though it'd be cool, IMHO, if Mp3.com and Itunes would join forces somehow as I'd like to look at less established artists....and there could be some 25 cent tracks (ie. classical stuff where there is no record label percentage)

I have no idea what a flautist is.

But I do love Berlioz, Harold in Italie, Symphonie Fantastique...

And of course Beethoven, Mozart.

Dvorak is a definite favorite.

Flautist=Flutist ;)

Symphonie Fantastique and Dvorak 8th is some of my fav, too!
Do you play an instrument(s)?

I find it hard to find calssical mp3s or just downloads... got any ideas?

No, not a musician. People always ask that if you like classical, why is that? My brother turned me on to classical music, he was in band. He'd always play Berlioz for dummies which had the final movement from Symphonie fantastique. That peice converted me.

I only get mp3s of songs I'm not really serious about, like Michael Jackson. If its serious music like some classical piece, I prefer to get the CD quality sound.

Of course now with everyone's recommendations I might get the MP3's first...

hmmmm.... I don't have the 8th. The 9th is an obvious great, and I love the Cello Concerto. I guess I'll have to check out the 8th.

Nah, the good baritones can hit a G natural easily.

Have a thing for Prokofiev, myself.

Stuck an entire Andre Previn 1973 CD of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet into iTunes the day I bought a pb17, and crammed it into my iPod a few days later. (The CD didn't come out in 1973, of course. :) )

Am playing it right now through the pb speakers, though it sounds better through my Bose TriPorts.
