New Music (new to you)

Postby mmichaelson » Fri Jul 23, 2004 9:18 am

I purchased a terrific cd last night and thought it might be worth it to start a new thread for music that's new to you. . .that way others can appreciate new music too.

Last night I purchased my third Yo-Yo Ma cd (I already have the Bach suites and the Silk Road Journies). I purchased Classic Yo-Yo last night, and absolutely adore it. I haven't decided which cd will be my next purchase, but as I already have the soundtrack to Master and Commander. . .who knows.

Anyone else buy new (to them) music recently?

I always thought Duncan was the classic yo-yo....


:D


PS. SB, you might wanna check out the "Recent Listening and Purchases" thread. Lots of juicy info on what the true classic music appreciators(not the novices like me) buy and listen to.

Duncan is the classic yo-yo, but the "Silver Bullet 2" by Tom Kuhn represents the epitome of yo-yos

My latest music purchase is a CD of American music, played on Davy Crockett's fiddle. I purchased it at the Colonial Williamsburg (VA) gift shop.

Among other tunes, it has the Star Spangled Banner on it. I sent Dan a copy about a month ago. You may have heard it some noontime.

I just got a Naxos CD of 3 Jewish tone poems. One was by Aaron Avshalomov, father of Jacob Avshalomov. Another was by a guy named Meyerowitz: Midrash Esther. The third was by a woman named Silver. It was for strings, and somewhat dissonant. The other 2 reminded me of Bloch's music. Never heard of this music, but glad I got it.

The Essential Leonard Cohen. You'll recognize some of his songs and, as a collection, it is quite amazing.

I'm finding Hummel very interesting at the moment. I came across him first in a collection of trumpet concertos, and was very impressed with his. Now I have some piano concertos as well. They're good listening.

I think it was Mr. Hummel's very bad luck to be a contemporary of Beethoven. Even worse than Salieri & Mozart.

Neither had I, except that Aaron was Jacob Avshalamov's father. I do have an unusually named piece by Jacob: The Taking of Tung Kuan. The family spent years in China. They settled in Oregon later in life.

Silver and Meyerowitz were totally new to me.

Wasn't there a stubbing on that freeway recently? I heard it was really bad. Must be an awful lot of sore toes there.

What? Stabbing?? Ohhhh, that's very different!
Never mind.

No, it wasn't a stubbing or a stabbing, it was a shirting! And, for the life of me, I don't know what those silly people are doing out on a freeway full of speeding cars(okay, we're in SoCal, parked cars), messing around with shirts ! It just doesn't make any sense!

:mad:

What's with all these Southern Californians shirting all over the freeways? Couldn't they hold it until they got home, or at least to a gas station?

Sounds like bullshirt to me.

Stubbings? Shirtings? I'm confused. :(

Low speed car chase, anyone?
