My computer's been giving me problems, so on Friday I ordered a new one. It's a very nice system, and I expect it to be in by the time I get back from vacation on the 10th/11th.

So, to celebrate, I'll be compiling a new CD. Fans of my previous CDs (or of music in general) should take note. You can start sending me PMs with your mailing address if you want one.

The playlist is tentative, of course, but the idea for now is:

Fantastic Finales
[pieces that not only have great endings on their own, but (possibly) also complete a larger body of work]

Music likely to include:
Shostakovich - Finale to Symphony #10 (Mvt. IV)
Rachmaninoff - Finale to Symphony #1 (Mvt. IV)
Rachmaninoff - Finale to Symphonic Dances (Mvt. III)
Arnold Bax - Finale to Symphony #1 (Mvt. III)
Borodin - Polovtsian Dances (from Prince Igor) [The ONLY recording of Polovtsian Dances you will ever need!]

Music possibly to include:
Khachaturian - Finale to Symphony #1 (Mvt. IV)
Respighi - The Fountain of the Villa Medici at Sunset (from Fountains of Rome)
Shostakovich - Finale to Symphony #13, "Babi Yar" (Mvt. V)
Glass - "V2 Schneider" from Heroes Symphony (Mvt. VI)
Bruckner - Finale to Symphony #0 (Mvt. IV) [Yes, that's ZERO. It's not a typo.]
Mahler - Finale to Symphony #1 (Mvt. IV) [excerpt]
Shostakovich - Finale to Symphony #6 (Mvt. III)
Shostakovich - Finale to The Bolt
Daugherty - Finale to Metropolis Symphony (Red Cape Tango)


As I said, the music list is not set yet, so feel free to point out which of these you'd like to hear, or to suggest new alternatives.

"Third Suite" by WHO? Jager? Reed? Someone else?

No, I don't have "Zacatecas." Personally, I don't think it's that great of a march. It's very, very easy.

But hey, you can look at the sheet music here:

Get a ripper program.

Basically, you just need software capable of pulling it off the CD. I use MusicMatch Jukebox for my ripping (pulling from CD) and burning (writing to CD) and MixMeister for my MP3 editing, mixing, etc.

Heh. I played that, too. But no, I don't have it. The only piece I have on CD by Robert Jager is "Esprit de Corps", and I don't like the recording because it's taken too fast.
