LD_hpicListening Diary

My comprehensive reviews are a lot of work — if I were to do a full review of all music that I listen to, I would need need to give up sleeping, work, eating, etc — and I would still need to reduce the number of CDs / pieces that I listen to. So, I decided to add a new category of blog posts which I call “Listening Diary”, capturing CDs / music that I listen to without doing a full comparison between different recordings, but still worth a couple remarks in my blog — though typically not covering “casual listening” (e.g., stuff that I listen to only once in the review period). I expect to have at least a short set of remarks on the recordings mentioned here. In this posting I want to give a short, chronological table of these listening diary posts (yellow indicating the most recent entries).

To find my comments on a specific composition, or to find out which compositions by a given composer I have discussed, you may either use the blog search function, or you may use the top (secondary) menu to find specific compositions, or lists for a specific composer; specific artists can be found via tags, or through the blog search option in the main menu.
