Some of my favorite music

This is a sampling of some of my favorite things to listen to. If you find that we have similar tastes in music, maybe you'll find something new here that you want to try.

Classical


You'll notice that I'm biased toward symphonic music, as opposed to, say, chamber music. This is probably because I'm a bassist, so I tend to prefer pieces that have bass parts. Speaking of bass, I would be remiss if I failed to mention:

Pop/Rock

I think that Radio Paradise is a really good example of an Internet radio station. You can hear a very eclectic mix of music, and learn about artists you've never heard of before. Check out their most recent playlist to see an example. I find that I typically have heard of only about 20% of the artists they're playing. Perhaps this is the future of music distribution?

Musical Theater

Broadway shows are probably my favorite art form. I would probably like opera this much, too, if it were sung in English. Here are some of my favorite shows:

My favorite Broadway performers include the tenors Michael Crawford and Mandy Patinkin.

Exciting Music You've Probably Never Heard

Some of the best music is also the hardest to categorize.
