This is a blog that combines an insatiable love of music with a steadfast aversion to spending money. So I started this blog to share my discoveries of classical music that you can find if you have a little cash, a little ingenuity and a record player.

  • Return of the Classical Vinylist
    on Apr 23, 2013
    Welcome. It's been two years since my last post, so I'm way overdue for an update. Although I have stopped posting for a while, I haven't stopped buying -- or listening to -- classical music on records. I'll resume posting here shortly, but first, a...
  • Samuel Barber, Concerto for Violin & Orchestra
    on Jan 14, 2011 in Samuel Barber Frederick Delius
    At last, an absurd album cover from the 1970s that kind of makes sense: Get it? It's a violin! With shaving cream! Because the composer's last name is Barber! I'm really starting to love the folks at Westminster Gold. Pity the label isn't around an...

  • Brahms' 'Ein Deutsches Requiem' to be performed this weekend in Bethlehem, Pa.
    on Oct 27, 2010 in brahms
    Call it a bit of shameless self-promotion, but I might as well come clean: This ain't my only writing gig. I also write about music, classical and otherwise, for The Express-Times, a newspaper in Easton, Pa. If you happen to live in the Lehigh Valley...

  • Dmitri Shostakovitch, Symphony No. 8
    on Oct 26, 2010 in Dmitri Shostakovitch
    Anyone who really believes that "hope springs eternal …" ought to become a Seattle Mariners fan. Or, if that's too painful, listen to Dmitri Shostakovitch's Symphony No. 8. From the first notes you can tell that this won't end with any s...

  • In search of good autumn classical music
    on Oct 4, 2010 in Beethoven
    Well, that's it for summer. The temperature dropped, the skies turned gray and the time for wool socks has arrived. Fall is here and I'm in need of some good classical music to get me in the mood. Besides the obvious -- "Autumn" in Vivvald...

  • REVIEW: 'Bach and Friends' on DVD
    on Sep 28, 2010 in dvd bach
    It may be suicidal to say this, but if you want to learn about composers, ask a musician, not a music critic. Often people who make music can talk about it in ways that nonmusicians can understand without resorting to jargon. That's what makes "...
