RonO's Ramblings

Oct. 14th, 2011 02:50 pm A Realization About my Music Collection

My iPod is labeled on the back with “RonO’s Very Eclectic Music Collection.”  However, this morning I realized that in one category my selection doesn’t seem all that eclectic.

When thinking about the major works of classical music of which I have recordings {major meaning suites, symphonies, and other works for more than one part; and classical referring to non-jazz, non-pop, instrumental compositions written primarily for performance as opposed to dramatic underscore}, my selection seems a bit less eclectic than some.

Off the top of my head I have works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin, Mussorgsky, Stravinsky, Polunec, Orff, Holst, and Emerson. Nearly all of them are 19th or 20th century composers, and most of them are Russian.

(Actually, I’m doubting that I have either of my recordings of the Carmina Burana ripped from CD and loaded into iTunes)

One other area in which I’m a bit limited – I think most or all of these are recordings released by Telarc, even the ones that I purchased as digital downloads.
