A new year - two (NO: three) brand new blogs

Last monday, tonyangelo started a new lossless classical music blog "La peau douce" (with up to now 9 posts, like the Stravinsky shown beside).

Also on last monday, the blog "Classical in the Air" was born, maintained by upkerry14 (Nickname is "Bill"). Bill says: "I'm going to try a blog featuring classical music in lossless format only ( FLAC, APE etc... except for some DAB which are shared here in thier original lossy format) of FM/digital radio broadcasts that I get mostly from I have no idea how much time I will devote to this so it's a wait and see sort of thing. Feel free to contribute as well of course. Enjoy the tunes."

UPDATE: I just discovered another blog owned by upkerry14, named A Thunderous Sound. It started with string quartets by Max Reger, a composer seldom found in the lossless blogs and avax.

Welcome, newcomers to the classical blogs comunity!

The Concert Hall changed to FLAC format

On Friday, December 19, 2008, scarpia said on The Concert Hall:


Starting Monday, December 15, the files for download will be presented only in FLAC format. Also, the download links will be available on the window of the post comments. So, you must open the comments window to have access to the download links. This week will be entirely devoted to the complete symphonies of Darius Milhaud. Stay tuned and enjoy the concert. Thanks.

Well done, Scarpia !

MEETING IN MUSIC: New Classical Music Web Portal

Scoredaddy recently posted in his blog Fanfare For Aaron Copland:

I want to take this opportunity to encourage all visitors to this site to also visit a marvelous new portal dedicated to classical music.

MEETING IN MUSIC features interesting articles, links to the best classical blogs on the web, and occasional links to sample some of the great music discussed amongst the blog participants.

My good friend Sankerib designed the site and although in constant improvement and development, MEETING IN MUSIC is already operating and you are cordially invited to join us to contribute and to partake of what is offered and to chat with fellow music-lovers from around the world.

I fully agree with Scoredaddy and Sankerib: Let's join and contribute to this new forum.
