What music are you listening to right now?

Talk about things that are not necessarily related to music or the guitar.

Michael Lucarelli Plays Ferdinando Carulli (loaned to me by a student).

It's hilarious - I may need therapy if I make it through the entire CD.

Radio 3 DAB - Hummel's trumpet concerto. Curious. A totally forgettable piece, yet at the same time recognisable as something that I've heard before! Is that a paradox, or does it just mean I've got a good memory for music?

Followed by Ligeti.

Currently listening to Segovia play the Tedesco concerto in D. My favorite guitar concerto.
And some Julian Bream Consort

I'm trying to get through the John Williams Box set. When I went through the Julian Bream box set, I took six months to go through it slowly and re-listen certain albums that really caught my interest. I had most of JB on LPs so I found it to be a much easier task since I was so familiar with the music already. I only owned about 10 JW LPs and maybe 10 JW CD compilations, so not as familiar with the work.

NP- Jose Rey de la Torre- his 6th album 20th Century Music for the Guitar. Albeniz-Torre Bermeja (Taking a John Williams Break).

This is an album that you can listen to 50 times and still learn things from it. Same goes for JB's Julian Bream '70s album. It's very "out there"! In Classic Rock terms like the Beatles' White Album or Fleetwood Mac's Tusk album. On first listen it is very strange but then you listen some more and the learning begins.

I use to spend some time on the Joni Mitchell forum back in the late nineties (I'm a huge fan of her work from her folkie art period to her Jazz albums) and everybody there always posted a "NP" at he bottom of their post. It means "now playing". What was playing at the time you were posting, as opposed to what you have been listening to in the car for the past 3 weeks. I always thought it was a great idea.

NP- Jose Rey de la Torre- his 6th album 20th Century Music for the Guitar. Nin-Culmell: Six Variations on a Theme by Milan (Still taking a John Williams Break-that box set is just a little too big).

I love all of Joni Mitchell's Seventies work, but a lot of people object to it and especially to Mingus, but that was the first of her albums that I liked!

Mozart's 'Don Giovanni'.

It's another a step in my 'perhaps if I listen to enough opera I might start to enjoy it' journey.

So far, it's not working...

I love opera in a sense, but I only bother with the highlights. I once had a complete Cosí fan Tutte, but I didn't see the point in listening to all the recitative without any visuals. However, I had mostly cassettes of opera highlights 35 years ago. I threw them all away and I haven't bothered replacing many of them with CDs yet. I'd quite like a complete set of mp3s of Wagner's ring cycle to play on my Bluray player for background without having to change discs.
