None of these videos are my own (unless otherwise stated). They are embedded from sites like Youtube and Google Video. Feel free to use them on your own site or blog. There's no need to ask. If you want to link to this site or mention where you got the video from, then that would be very much appreciated, but it's not necessary.
I might get a little upset if you try to copy the entire blog. I recently came across a blog that was made up entirely of my own articles. The owner didn't acknowledge my authorship or even link to me. He had ads on the site and didn't appear to know anything about the subject. I contacted the blog hosting company, but haven't heard back from them yet.
But I digress, I want you to enjoy these videos and share them if you wish. It's not hard to embed videos. It usually involves a simple copying and pasting of the embed code. If you have any trouble, you may want watch this video.

I love music, especially classical music. I'm a lifelong fan and even do some composing. I hope this blog will be a fun place to see and hear great classical performances. I will try to provide a viewing experience that is easier and more pleasant than conducting endless searches at one of the big video sites. I encourage you to use the labels in the right hand column to find the videos you are most interested in.
I want to use this blog to explore a wide range of formal music, from medieval and renaissance styles to more modern experimental forms. I plan on including lesser known composers, in addition to the big names. I hope you enjoy your visit and I always appreciate your comments.
