Loc: It's all about the location.
I've had a classical CD sitting around for years, I think it was a Christmas present years ago. Anyway, I've always been curious about classical music and now with the M80s hooked up, I figured "what the hey!" why not dig out the old CD and give it a spin....I'm sure a number of you are quite versed in classical music, I recognize a lot of songs when I hear them, just not the composer or name of the compositions.

Here's what's on the CD...

1.SIBELIUS Overure-Finlandia

2.PROKOFIEV Romeo and Juliet

3.CHOPIN Polonaise in Ab

4.MOZART Symphony No 40 In G Minor

5.SCHUBERT Trout Quintet

6.VIVALDI Four Seasons 'Summer'

7.HANDEL Water Music

8.WAGNER Overture-Die Meistersinger

9.BACH Concerto For Two Violins in D Minor

10.BACH Toccata And Fugue in D Minor

I have to say, I'm amazed at the range of the M80s. There is such a contrast of bass/mid/highs on so many different instruments here...great range and clarity.

Yeah, Adrian, hopefully you'll be able to more fully satisfy your curiosity about classical music. There's a whole world of great music waiting for you out there to give a listen. There's been quite a few suggestions made on the board, for example in the "stunning recordings" thread, and I'd be happy to make specific suggestions that you might be interested in.

The snippet from Prokofiev in that disc that you mention reminds me of a terrific bargain available now on his Cinderella plus Glazunov's Seasons. The British supplier MDT, which I've used with great satisfaction, is having a sale on Universal(Decca, DG,Philips)two-disc sets for about $7.80 U.S. plus about $1.10 shipping. Of course, as usual, a currency adjustment applies and Canadian shipping apparently is about a dollar more, but this set is still a great buy.

Listening to Ida Maria's songs on MySpace again. I think I'm addicted. "OhMyGod" and "Better When You're Naked" are so catchy.
