Mixtapes

Guilty Pleasures

"listening too long.. to one song!"

Travel Mix

A few of the songs I enjoyed on a recent trip to la mar

May Mix

Sounds of Cinema

The Minnesota Orchestra did a Sounds of Cinema festival this January. I was inspired to download a bunch of tangents and put together a mix. On NPR the other day the classical DJ sincerely praised John Williams for his inspired soundtracks, and I think that's a good way of putting it. Cinema soundtracks do sound classical at their best, and while it's often derivative, it makes great use of an orchestra.

Christmas Mix

Where I went to college, Christmas involved 7 choirs and a symphony. Our conductors made the most of this opportunity.

Teach Me Your Songs

TV

Classical Recommendations

Philip in Ireland got my Great Performances Mixtape and requested that I "point [him] towards some composers or pieces that have a) the epic power and intensity of something like Muse, and b) the serenity and grace that say Miles Davis or Coleman Hawkins can have, even Sigur Ros or The Earlies."

bad love sad love v4

I rec'd a mixtape a few months ago entitled "bad love sad love v3" - the first 2 were made by a woman who had passed away. Interesting to think that our mixtapes could have a life of their own after we're gone.

Nordic Choir Supermix

Favorite pieces from my years in Nordic, in the order Weston would have presented them in concert (I think).

Fatally in Love

"I've now fallen fatally in love with it. I can't tear myself away from it." -Sibelius 1901/Sarah 2007

Songs I Wish Were On Karaoke Revolution

did you receive the "lost" mix?

Bob

Sarah, My apologies for getting your mix out so late. I got it in the mail on 5/2/08. The good news is that you should receive two mixes this month. Drop me a line if you would to let me know when you receive it. Thanks.

Martin

Recieved the mix the other day, thanks Sarah. I really enjoy recieving music from a genre I know little about.

Jennifer

I got an email saying you received your Nov mix from me but I don't remember sending one. I thought I was way behind? Did I really send it already?

katie
