Finally, there are aesthetic and stylistic reasons for the dearth of Mozart works during a normal winter season. Artur Rubinstein's comment that Mozart is too simple for children and too difficult for adults is relevant here. Many conductors, following the trend of concert halls around the world, d...

Heifetz, Rabin, great fiddlers indeed. Both quite dead though. :( I am more than willing to give Ms Barton-Pine a chance. She was great in the "Homage to Sarasate". I have no problem listening to a person who is still alive once in a while. Refreshing change from all those dead guys. :D I think Chu...

Did you take into account that Carl (or Karl) Ditters von Dittersdorf is a much more common German name than Richard Wagner? You were probably getting a lot of family histories in those hits. And there are more America...

The statement about more being writen about Wagner than Jesus is, of course, an exageration. However, I think we should keep in mind that Jesus is 1813 years older than Wagner, and thus has had more time to be written about. Wagner however, is probably the most written-about composer. Just for fun,...

Professor Paul Robertson, a leading expert in the field, says it's important the best music is made available to babies at the earliest possible stage of their growth.
I think WAM himself received some of the best music available at his earliest stage of development and growth.
