If you didn’t like those mid period string quartets I wouldn’t recommend any others. I think that part of his output should really be considered as a whole with the late ones the culmination.

I’m not a fan of his symphonies but I think it’s the most accessible for the beginner (not meant as a put down).

Mozart died young and many of his works are marked by the cheekiness of youth. Where Beethoven excels is in his mature works composed later in life but even his early quartets are extremely fresh and a good representation of some of the best of the Viennese school of the latter half of the eighteenth century.

Hi

I got Mark Knopfler's new cd Down The Road Wherever for Xmas - really enjoying listening to it.

When i hear him play it makes me both want to pick up a guitar and, pack in trying to play!

In Dec Guitarist mag (UK) there is a long interview with him, where he states that he wants to have some guitar lessons!

New Years Eve day at work, with just nothing going on, I played all the Beethoven Symphonies straight through starting with number one.

I'd like to try that with his piano Sonatas, but I'd have to pull a 12-er!

Sorry Wadcutter - I know what you mean though.

I guess there are worse songs to have stuck in your head?!

I am actually learning Sultans - it sounds quite nice on an acoustic (how it was originally written), as well as the electric.

Cheers

Rich

Spotify Daily Mix #3 (they curate personalized playlists, based on your listening habits). This one's mostly punk, which is great for cranking up and tuning out at work.

Rancid
Bad Religion
Descendents
Agnostic Front
Social Distortion
The Dead Milkmen
etc.

I'll likely switch things up later and listen to the new Deerhunter album.
