Music Schedule

I’m putting together a list of musicians that we’ll study over the next five years — yes, five, one musician a month. By that time Paco will be 16 and then maybe we can explore gospel or even pop music (not that they don’t get to listen to these now — no way to avoid it completely).

In the past I’ve been dependent on the 4real forum for which musicians we are studying, but since we have many recordings here at home and I have my own interests to pursue, I’ve decided to go with my own list:

  1. St. Hildegard von Bingen
  2. Ockeghem
  3. Gombert
  4. Palestrina
  5. Gesualdo (Lent 2008?)
  6. Corelli
  7. Pachelbel
  8. Purcell
  9. Albinoni
  10. Telemann
  11. Handel
  12. Bach
  13. Scarlatti
  14. Haydn
  15. Clementi
  16. Mozart
  17. Beethoven
  18. Paganini
  19. Czerny
  20. Schubert (March 2008)
  21. Berlioz
  22. Mendelssohn
  23. Chopin
  24. Schumann
  25. Liszt
  26. Wagner
  27. Bruckner
