Sorry my bad. I should have said “version” not “reworking”.What Classical elements have been reworked to create either performance? (cf. comments about William Orbit and Pieces in a Modern Style)
Not in a bad way, I trust. For what it's worth, I've done similar myself countless times.Sorry deleted it by mistake!! It’s been a long day!!
Hope you find something you enjoy, dude.Yes Puccini, I would often turn the music/TV off in my own house to listen to her’s playing at full blast!! It was never the same when she switched from Vinyl.
I’ll be binging out on your thread this xmas.
I absolutely love The Bridegroom. Will give the others a sniff later, cheers.
Ditto this - I don't really know much by Brahms. On the subject of symphonies generally, one of my Christmas voucher acquisitions was a much-longed for Vaughan Williams boxset featuring all nine of his plus sundries conducted by Andrew Davis with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. It's flipping lush and I know you're partial to a bit of Lark, so consider this a recommend.I really don't know nuffink about classical but I've been listening to a lot of symphonies over the last couple of years and this one is my favourite.
