    Hi guys.
    I'm new at this forum, and new to Stafford, too.
    I'm so into classical music, mostly into Shostakovich, Rachminoff and Beethoven kinds.
    Can anyone tell me any festival hall or some place near Stafford if there's one?
    Plus, I'm looking for a friend to go to concerts with. I'm 26.
    Hit me back if interested!
    Thanks

    I'd be happy to go with you, especially for Shostakovich!

    Beethoven fan here, also Mozart, italian opera (Puccini) and Tchaikovsky's ballet.
    We can go for classical music first then to the Grapes pub :D. Such a clash of styles..

    Some can be very relaxing.....I particularly like a Japanese composer by the name of Joe Hisaishi

    Also, every new years day......at approximately 11:30am....this has become a ritual to start the new year off with some culture.

    The "25 years" is what convinced me to start with.

    I thought by classical music we meant classics, not music for cartoons with flying brooms...
    Anyways, my proposal to follow with

    OK McGyver I agree, I can't disagree at all.

    Considering I'd spent most of the day listening to Liszt.

    Music is music, if you enjoy it does it really matter if it is a score / accompaniment to a movie, be it animated or not?

    Classic FM has its movie score shows does it not? Then why would Studio Ghibli be any different?

    So it's not the same as the "classic" composers of notoriety, Joe Hisaishi is still a skilled composer and writer of music in his own right, I just happened to chose this particular concert of his as it was a celebration of not just his music but also the way his music can enhance the emotion you experience on screen.

    Click play, listen, open your mind & ears to something different, and hopefully you'll enjoy...that's all I ask

    Centenary performance of the Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis by Ralph Vaughan Williams recorded in a dark and empty Gloucester Cathedral in 2010 by the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Andrew Davis.
