Classical Performance

Reviews For Classical Performance

I love listening to the podcast! It’s so relaxing and wonderful to hear the different performances. My husband and I recently went to Italy and I downloaded a few episodes for us to listen to while we were away, and it was lovely. I hope you continue to produce it!

Simply fantastic, thank you for sharing. Greetings from Mexico.
So great to find that this podcast was available again. I listened for a long time before it went on hiatus. Just what a classical podcast should be - focused on the music with pithy, helpful context offered.
Welcome Back! I've missed this podcast am ecstatic over your return and look forward to many more outstanding performances.
It seems this cast was on hiatus for a while, and I'm very glad that it's back! Fantastic
have loved this podcast for years & the added education bits are superb! I really hope they find a way to return!
This is the one of the best podcasts I've listened. I hope they come back asap! :)
I've been missing my regular classical performance podcasts and contacted WGBH to see what the plan was and they say they are attempting to find ways to continue the program. Until they do it is on hiatus. At least we have the archived performances to listen to but I really hope it comes back as a regular podcast one of these days. This really is one of the best classical performance podcasts available.
Maybe the intros are a bit much when moving through the catalog, but how can you complain, it's free... Please make more.
...but really, they need to drop those lengthy introductions. They sometimes last 2 minutes, and include the grating WGBH theme music. The workaround is fine, but really the introductions are unnecessary; all the info should be part of the metatags.
Haha I could hear breathings too! Have been wondering about that. Yet the pieces selected were very pleasant :)

ok
3/5

why is that i can hear the man breathing? Is it the violinist or the host? Is it breathing at all? somebody tell me, i can;t take it!

Finally a place in peace...
These are my favorite classical podcasts, even thoguh there is really little of quality to choose from. (The only one of this quality is 'The Concert.") I love Alan McLellan's introductions, and it's exciting to listen to what we used to call "direct-to-disc", unsanitized, unscrubbed, and real. The selections are great, too.
All of the music in this podcast is solid gold. It's like you get a free 1/2 CD every time they come out with a new podcast. You can cut the intro very easily by going into the Get Info window and setting the appropriate time options. Hooray for WGBH and free chamber music, we should all send them a donation
the bezt podcazt ever.. helpz me relax on homework time
A great way to learn about chamber music with great performances too!
F*****g awesome.
This podcast is terrific! I always find Alan's intros insightful, though I usually use the "Start at __.__" function to skip it after I've heard it once. I've been introduced to many wonderful artists through these great, live recordings.
start your library of brilliant performances of excellent chamber choices today!
For those that don't want to hear the talking at the beginning of a podcast, here is how to bypass it: right-mouse click on the podcast after downloading it, click on "get info," and then click the "options" tab. Change the start time to reflect when the music actually starts. This also works for getting rid of anything at the end of the podcast, just change the end time to cut off any unwanted talking. This change will transfer to the iPod and start the "show" right where you want it. I picked this up from another podcast listener and found it most helpful. I hope this helps you enjoy the music more.
except we have to listen to an introduction, why not make them seperate so they are optional.
Most of the players are top drawer and they play for free. Could you ask anything more?
The music is still good. I didn't mind the other host; good voice and short informed intro. Current host no info and voice like chipmonks on speed. I gave 5 stars before with other host.
Thoroughly enjoy the quality and the variety of music presented. Thank you for a superior program.
i recommend it
If you really want to listen to a good classical music Podcast, go look up the Orchestra of Southern Utah's Podcasts.
The host, Allen is pleasant and it's great exporsure to performers and pieces for us "training wheel" classical enthusiast. Great value for free.
helps me focus while doing homework
A gem for the classic music lover!!!!
This is probably the best podcast of its genre. The only downside is that one is forced to listen to a spoken introduction before each piece of music, keep one from putting these podcasts in a regular music playlist.
Virtuosos perform new interpretations on classics, live in a studio in Boston.
