The Best Classical Recordings: Symphonies
Slicko on 03/24/2009
|This is the first of what I hope will be a series of quizzes. They are for the classical music novice as well as the seasoned listener. The questions focus on some of the greatest pieces of classical music ever written. More importantly they will help you find what is arguably the best performance of each piece currently available. I hope you will consider printing off a copy of this quiz when you are done and using it as a reference. Take it to your local CD store or your favorite music download site to help build your own classical music library. |
Because choosing the best recording is somewhat subjective I have used a host of references and took the majority opinion. These include The American Record Guide, The Penguin Guide to Classical Music, Gramophone Classical Good CD Guide, and the BBC Music Magazine.
