Might you set me on the listing, too? I would wish to take part (hopefully, I will have the time). You appear to be following my suggestion on Selby’s piano sonata thread, that every individual on the listing will get their flip to choose a distinct string quartet every week. I like that format, and have discovered from previous expertise that it really works well–so lengthy as individuals keep conscious of when it is their flip to choose. (A weekly reminder is not a nasty idea– «so & so, you are up subsequent week…») It additionally helps to maintain an ongoing listing of individuals’s decisions that’s up to date & posted weekly, not solely to function reference for the group, but additionally to assist individuals see when their flip is coming again up once more.I ought to add that, for my part, we should not must justify our decisions or be sure that they’re accepted by the entire group beforehand, however moderately be happy to choose no matter SQ pursuits us. In different phrases, not everybody goes to love all the pieces that we pay attention to every week, & that is an excellent factor! In any other case, the alternatives of repertory may turn out to be too uniform and acquainted, & what is the enjoyable in that? Plus, I anticipate it should turn out to be unnecessarily time consuming (& probably a drag) for every of us to be sure that our decisions are accepted by the entire group each week. We simply have to just accept that some listeners will inevitably say «I did not like that SQ», and it should not be taken personally, however is be anticipated. In fact, on the identical time, you must hope that folks will do their greatest to choose a SQ that strongly pursuits them, and that they consider will curiosity others.
Then, as soon as the thread is established, in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, if the SQ repertory turns into largely exhausted, we might simply swap over to piano trios, or violin sonatas, or quintets, and so on.
How does that sound? Although after all it is your thread, you actually do not must hearken to me.
flamencosketches–In the event you do not choose Mozart’s «Dissonance» Quartet, don’t fret, I am certain I will select it in some unspecified time in the future, because it’s considered one of my high 5 favourite SQs. However be happy, it is an excellent selection.
