Classical Music Tips

Lately I have been downloading copyright expired classical and early music to listen to while I work. My main sources are Archive.org and Liber Liber. I have found it helpful to set myself some parameters on my downloads:

  • Nothing operatic or choral. I don’t like it and it wrecks my concentration.
  • No Wagner.
  • Be careful with the stuff transferred from 78rpm gramophone records on archive.org. Some of it has been cleaned up OK but a lot of it is just too scratchy and a regular 78bpm noise gets distracting fast.
  • No Wagner.
  • Nothing recorded in Nazi Germany!
  • Seriously, fuck Wagner.
