Rich, you're probably referring to the corruption of the Bach "Gigue" Fugue in G Major, BMV 577, usually played on the organ, but also arranged for other instruments.

Thanks for the lead, John.

Bwv 577 may be the one!!

The piece I remember from the late 70s was a happy sound more likely in a major key rather than 845, which is in a minor key and is so little liked that I couldn't even find a snippet to listen to!!

I listened to a snippet of 577 and while it was an organ piece rather than guitar, it didn't sound "exactly" like what I "think" I recall, but it's an extensive piece, and since it is a fugue, the part I'm familiar with(sorta)may have even been an inverted portion!

Anyway; thanks for the lead! Sure could be the one at that!!
Rich.

I listen to a lot of Classical Music.For a beginner I recommend the DELOS cd label.They are well engineered CDs. They have some excellent samplers to whet the appetite such as The Symphonic Sound Stage,Engineer's Choice 1 and 2 and others.Punch in DELOS CLASSICAL under classical music at AMAZON and find over 100 recordings at modest prices [4-10 dollars or so plus shipping].The above examples also talk about how each selection was engineered,mike placement, how many mikes,acoustic problems to overcome etc.Read the reviewers' comments for each cd in Amazon and in the DELOS booklets which come with the cds.NAXOS label has some fine samplers and short pieces. I get my NAXOS cds through Amazon and ARCHIV MUSIC on the web.The DELOS are wonderful listening experiences for you and how well your equipment works.

I listened to a new SACD last night that I would highly recommend. It was Mozart's Piano Concertos #9 and #25 recorded on the Philips label with Alfred Brendel on piano backed by Sir Charles Mackerras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I ordered this SACD on Mozart's 250th birthday.

That must sound very good indeed, David; I'm familiar with Brendel's earlier performances of those with Marriner.

Today the mailman brought another Romeo and Juliet DVD which I played immediately. A very lavish production using choreography by Nureyev which differs a bit from the MacMillan version(Eagling-Ferri)I've had, with of course the same glorious Prokofiev music. Great music, terrific dancing.

John et al,

I have 2 new M80s hooked up to Denon 3805 and played 2-channel on one of my favourite piece: Prélude from Suite No. 1 in G Major for Cello, BWV 1 performed by Yo-Yo Ma The Essential Yo-Yo Ma

While listening to the piece, I can't help but notice some very light but swift pops (sounds to me like fingers pressing on the cello strings), and also what seemed to be sound of inhalations.

Am I hearing these correctly as recorded in the CD, or is it something else I should be looking into (maybe the Sony CD/DVD player etc)?

I am very glad to invest in the Axiom speakers. I am hearing many details I have never heard before from my CDs on lower and higher frequencies.

Thanks,
Ken

It could be "worse"!
I've heard some recording of Glenn Gould on piano where he would hum along with the music.
