What Are You Listening To This Weekend?

Friday, the best day of the work week, and time to ask: what are you listening to this weekend?

With Halloween around the corner we're going to give Bartok's Bluebeard's Castle a listen for a little gothic horror.

We're also going to hit Amoeba's second annual Classical Music sale this weekend as we'll be in LA. Is there anything we should be looking for? Let us know.

We're also going to give the French pop band Revolver a careful close listen. We heard a webcast of them from CMJ and really liked what we heard. It was only after reading a bit more about them that we learned that they're classically trained and cite Benjamin Britten as one of their influences. They're debut LP "Music for a While" also shares the name of one of Henry Purcell's greatest works. This just might be our favorite music discovery of the year. Uh, so far...

Have a great weekend!

Bluebeard's Castle sure is a good listen this time of year! :o) I'm keeping my ears clear for tonight's Korngold violin concerto and Dvorak's 9th at the SD Symphony... After that it'll be time to revisit the spooky DVD of Britten's The Turn of the Screw. Feeling quite eerie. :oD
