Thanks for all the support haha. When I look back on it I feel kind of disappointed with the album... but I'm my own worst critic. I'll get better.

1.5/5 It was crap, but for some reason I didn't have a hard time getting through it. Weird.


And today so far:

i started to really appretiate haydn since i studied him this semester. some of his stuff is meh. but some is great. id defiantly check out the 1st movement of his 98th symphony.
and ive really fallen in love with mozart. especially his operas.
and the eroica wa the last thing that we leanred last semester. such an amazing symphony.
i dont know brittens guitar work. but ill check it out. i do like dowland so im sure itll be interesting.
is ritten he one that wrote a young person's guide to the orchestra? thats a great peice

listening to robbie basho-venus in cancer

Haydn - you'll have to recommend me something. The problem I have with him is there's a massive glut of it without anything that's come to my attention as standing out. 1st movement of the 98th symphony - that's an awful lot of symphonies, y'know?

But then, that's true of Bach and Mozart, two composers I adore, for the most part.

The Britten guitar piece for John Dowland... I think the memorium should be taken with a pinch of salt. It's one of those ones that's good, but I never noticed Dowland treating the tonic with such ill-regard. It may be by lack of musicological chops, but I think he's taking a very episodic inspiration from what I've heard of Dowland.

Britten did do the young person's guide.... I prefer Saint-Saen's carnival of the animals in the 'kids orchestral pieces' category. Britten is always a funny one for me, goes far too close to the horrors of British pastoral for my liking.

I've half a mind to listen to Solti doing Mahler's 8th now. But I think I'll stick with my Strauss-a-thon.
