I just listened to some of Orff - Carmina Burana, and yeah, it's a lot of fun. I'll have to go through the whole disc this weekend.

JohnK must get a commision check everytime one of us buys a "classical" CD. \:D

Once I learned to take the time and listen to them my enjoyment level has grown. In fact, there is only one classical music radio station in Southern California and I find myself tuning into it more and more. Very relaxing for the stressful driving down here.

Tom, I've only heard a couple tracks from that disc. I'll have to purchase more or buy the whole thing. What I have I like, though.

Robert Plant sings everything so straight, and their voices meld beautifully. Particularly compelling was a version of "Black Dog" that I think appears on the CMT special but not on the album. I was amazed that - after singing it one way for 35 years - he was able to interpret it so successfully in a completely different way.

I did not like a Brandi Carlile special I tried to watch last night. Overwhelmingly earnest. Perhaps I wasn't in the right mood.

I thought the Foo Fighters Skin and Bones was very enjoyable.

Lots of gypsy jazz via Pandora lately.

Tom, I agree with you on Brandi Carlile and Foo Fighters. While I enjoy her album I did't like the special they show on TV all the time.

I'm a sucker for Foo Fighters. I've got the live album but not the DVD, although I watched the show on TV over the weekend. One of the few times I wish my DirecTV was hooked up to my system.

Yeah Sean, I usually listen to Jim Svejda's program on KUSC(7:00 to Midnight, Pacific, weekday nights)streaming to my M22s from my computer. He usually plays interesting music and often has interesting guests in the studio.

I'd have to say KUSC is my primary listening station right now. Tonight as I was driving home it was John Williams and the Boston Pops Symphony playing the theme to "Star Wars." Yeah, maybe it's not the definition of classical music, but I cranked it up. Star Wars was my thing when I was a kid.

Uh, still is, I guess. . .

I did a little listening to Cecilia Bartoli - Gluck: Italian Arias on SACD which someone recommended somewhere here. Ha ha. It's pretty cool. I see she has an HD DVD out, too. There were several classical HD DVDs that came out. I'm tempted to pick some up if I see a price drop on them.

The final item on the program tonight will be Ormandy's Carmina Burana, which Svejda apparently really likes.

I just listened to Segovia's "The Segovia Collection" 4 disc box set. My jaw has dropped and I need bandaids for my chin.

I really prefer violin or cello music, and I have read and heard that David Russell and Jason Vieux are better than Segovia. Sharon Isbin also seems to make it to the favorites list of many listeners.

But this set is stupendous through my M22s (with QS4s and a Hsu stf-1 sub). Especially disc 2! It doesn't sound quite as good through my Sennheiser 595s - but I need an amp to see what they can really do.

On another "note" I just ordered the TMBG two dvd/cd collections. Thanks for the tip.
