At the minute there's just the one I'm considering in April...Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss orchestra.

Has anyone been to any of their shows?

Somehow I snob Andre Rieu. Probably for no good reason. Pop classical fatigue maybe.

That is no good reason.

I do have a loathing of that attitude...but alas it plagues so much of music following.

Going this afternoon to see Rachmaninov's 3rd Piano Concerto and 2nd Symphony, with Lugansky on piano and Ashkenazy conducting :parrot:

I'm really more in thrall with the dancing than the Bach orchestration, but anyway, Paul Taylor's choreography absolutely destroys me and I don't know where else to post it.

I was wondering, shouldn't there be a top 10 classical works archive here ? It could attract a bit more attention to this board, and I'd be interested to know other peoples taste in classical music more precisely.

Would that be a thread where everyone can post their 10 favorite classical works? If you think there would be a lot of interest in that, then I'm willing.

Yes that's what I mean. Because I for example having trouble comparing classical composers with pop artists, let alone albums with classical works. I don't know if there would be that much interest in it, but it definitely wouldn't lessen the interest.

OK, I'll make a thread for that, and we'll see what happens.
