Re: what are you hearing?

Have to confess, I have never cared much for classical voices in recital. I don't know why. I had season tickets to the Washington opera for five or six years--and I think that is the one thing I miss most down here. But then there's probably not a decent opera company south of Houston [unless LA is south of Houston].

Agree. My daughter, whose musical training was the violin, loves this
voice...he has a wide range of musical interests. (My daughter, by the
way, also loves country so to those who have never loved classical...don't
be reluctant to try.)

Jim: As an apparent fellow lover of classical music, I would invite you
to check out a young man by the name of Josh Groban...24 years old with
the voice of an angel...nearly brings me to tears listening to his
beatiful music. He does some contemporary Broadway stuff,too and brings
a great deal to that genre as well. Am hoping Santa will be kind to me
with a gift of Josh Groban's new CD under the tree this year. re:
Handel's Messiah--a few years ago I was lucky enough to find a 12 volume
record album set of the entirety of this masterpiece at a consignment
store, in very good condition...it's not difficult to find a CD or
something with selected works from the Messiah, but to find the whole
thing...ahhh!!! And for less than $5...what a victory!

It's odd, Daryl, but I can't find the Yo Yo Ma set [two CDs, Bach,
<br>Goldberg Variations]; my wife must have it in her vehicle. It's a
<br>terrific recording. A real head piece. I remember going to a party
once <br>when it was played followed by Rostopovich's recording--and we
debated <br>the merits of each or both on into the night.<br><br>The
good news is that, when looking for Ma's recording, I found my <br>Jerry
Garcia-David Grisman CD [that's what it's called: "Jerry
<br>Garcia/David Grisman"]. This is another one that's worth running
down. <br>If you don't know Grisman, he may be the best mandolin picker
that ever <br>lived. He's one of those blue grass guys, like Peter Rowan
[remember <br>"The Free Mexican Airforce"?], that seem to be all over
the place--and <br>comfortable about it.<br><br>About this time of year:
It has always been a problem for me. Most <br>"christmas" music is
soppy-sappy crap orchestrated to make you feel <br>festive and mindless
in the aisles at Wal-Mart. And by now [December 8] <br>it has grown
truly tiresome. There used to be a classical music station <br>DJ in
Washington who played christmas music in July and not in October,
<br>November, December, and [in case you missed it] January. And it has
<br>always torqued me that the greedy co-opted Handel's "Messiah" to
sell <br>give-away sentimentality among the pine boughs and snowflakes
[and <br>amused me, of course, because Handel would have done it himself
if it <br>had occurred to him].<br><br>You asked if I have a favorite.
Yes. My all time favorite of all time <br>is the Julliard String Quartet
of the late-1970s early-1980s playing <br>almost anything--a Beethoven
quartet preferred. Robert Mann and Richard <br>Carliss on violin, Samuel
Rhodes on viola, and [blush, I don't <br>remember] on cello. Mann was to
the Strad what Grisman is to the <br>mandolin. Fantastic. And, if you're
in the audience, genuinely heart <br>stopping.<br><br><br><br>On
