Braveheart Music

I love the movie Braveheart, especially the haunting Scottish music. Thanks for playing the end credits music by J. Horner. I can really work well listening to your station. Keep up the good work.

Welcome to the BBB, Mrs S. I found Beethoven Radio good for working as well - I'd listen to it every day when I was revising for my exams.

Andy, how do you rate Beethoven.com compared with ClassicFM and BBC Radio3?

Compared to ClassicFM? It's way better. Beethoven.com just feels more natural, less commercial. To me, ClassicFM always felt like they were only playing the music because they think you'll like it. I'm not saying I like everything on Beethoven.com, but I prefer the general taste. (I have often found myself struggling to bear the pap that they'll put on Classic FM sometimes; some of the stuff they play... it just makes you wonder why anybody would want to listen to it.) But ClassicFM did introduce me to Vaughan Williams' "The Lark Ascending," my favourite piece ever; although hardly anyone seems to play the only really good recording I know of, the one with the almighty Sara Chang, God bless her.... also Ludevico Einaudi, a minimalist pianist/composer, who's minimalism, unfortunately, has some how leaked into all of my compositions... So basically, I think ClassicFM is good, but not great.

As to Radio 3, I've never really listened to it - I really don't know why. Even when the Proms are on, I'll just watch 'em on TV. That's odd. I think I will listen to it more.

But basically, Beethoven is definitely top of the pile for me, as concerns classical music stations. Thank you for asking, David. :D :cool: I'm assuming you prefer B.com too?

Yes. When I am working, I generally find B.com to be the station playing the biggest selection of my favourite pieces over extended periods. Sometimes one of the other on-line stations I am familiar with (eg BBC Radio 3, Classic FM etc.), or the local on-air classical station, schedules a few hours of compositions that I like, so I go over to them for a while, but sooner or later get back to B.com (in this sense it is my "home" station).
When I am off-line, I listen to the local station, cable music channels, or (especially when driving) CD's.

If I could ignore work to listen to B.com more, I would.

Whatever I am doing, I do it better if there is good music of the B.com type in the background - "...when you sit in your house, when you walk (or drive) on your way, when you lie down, and when you rise." (Deut vi, 7) - and when you work.

I'm very fortunate. Most of my work is on the computer. The only time I am away from my desk is when I must go to meetings, so I get to listen to B.com most of the day.

Oh, hi Piq, thanks for asking :( But fingers crossed, I might get my ideal part: Claudius, Hamlet's uber-evil uncle.
Thanks for asking, piqaboo. :cool:
