    music recommendations?


    I'm taking an organic chemistry class, and I like to study to classical music. I'm in search of new classical music. I know there are a lot of you who know good music. Here's an example of some of the type of music I like:

    - anything Beethoven
    - a lot of Russian composers: Stravinsky, Prokofiev (especially Piano Concerto #2), Rach, Rimsky-Korsakov (Capriccio Espagnol being a fave)
    - Roderigo - love the classical guitar
    - Copeland

    Any suggestions? I haven't purchased new music in ages, and it's about time. I need some new stuff in order to keep me studying!

    Classical music and Organic Chemistry


    “I'm taking an organic chemistry class, and I like to study to classical music”

    Organic chemistry and classical music, what a great combinatin.

    “I haven't purchased new music in ages, and it's about time. I need some new stuff in order to keep me studying”

    I recommend that you order your cds from Berkshire outlet, the price is very reasonable.

    www.broinc.com/

    I do not listen to a huge variety of classical music while I am studying, my poor brain can’t handle too many things at one time. Generally music with a wide dynamic / emotional range, pieces that are too distracting, or music that require too much intellectual and emotional involvement. LOL An example is Carmina Burana is too distracting, I never listened to that while studying, another example is Tchaikovsky's symphony # 6

    Lab work is totally different, anything goes in a lab. LOL. Generally, I find science and math go well with classical as background. Eng Lit and classical music do not go as well

    Since you love Beethoven I recommend Beethoven’s piano quintet. In this naxos disc there are the Beethoven and Mozart piano quintets.

    You like Copland

    Here is his clarinet conerto, performed by Goodman, conduct by Copland himself!!!

    Copland’s tenderland suite

    Other recommendations:

    Brahms: Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op.115 and
    Mozart’s clarinet quintet
    www.towerrecords.com/prod...id=1519422

    Bach: Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied solo violin. Szeryng gave one of the best interpretation.

    www.towerrecords.com/prod...id=1185579

    Bach: Suites for unaccompanied cello , Pablo Casal on Historic Naxos is reasonable price and good.


    www.towerrecords.com/prod...id=1913289

    Bach: Goldberg Variations , the Glenn Gould version

    www.towerrecords.com/prod...id=2718771
    English composers, e.g Vaughan Wiliams, Butterworth, Delius , Finzi

    Vaughan-Williams: The Lark Ascending, Variations on a theme of Thomas tallis

    www.towerrecords.com/prod...id=1067708

    Finzi 5 Bagatelle,and clarinet concerto

    www.towerrecords.com/prod...id=1509774

    Of course Telemann started the tafelmusic tradition (dinner music) for easy listening, and Mozart followed that up with a lot of divertimentos, and serenades , Mozart’s gran partitia for winds, and Eine Kleine Nacht Music are some examples

    Telemann’s Tafelmuzic

    classical.towerrecords.co...=1&act=C34


    Mozart serenade, gran partita

    classical.towerrecords.co...=1&act=C34

    BTW, I included links to specific pieces from tower records, but you maybe able to find cheaper ones at Berkshire

    Happy Listening, and Ace Organic Chemistry.

    A cheaper alternative is to listen to classical music online. Its always different and its free!

    Like Eltamina said, I find that if I'm listening to music I know well, and really enjoy I get all caught up in it and am unable to concentrate on my homework.

    I usually listen to

    http://www.mostlyclassical.com/
    http://www.digitallyimported.com/ ( at the bottom of the page)

    Check it out, it might be what you're looking for!

    eltamina and cborsky -
    Thanks for the recommendations. I really appreciate it. Listening on-line - what a great idea. I hadn't even though of that. The classical station in my area plays too many commercials which I find distracting.
