REVIVAL

After many years of ill heath, not being able to keep the library updated etc.,  I am happy to say that I am reviving Hemingway's Studio albeit in a totally new format.

Classical music is something that I can never live without . . . or should I rephrase that as "GOOD MUSIC" !  Music being a constantly evolving art form probably is what makes it so fascinating.  I have spent a lifetime of enjoyment building a large collection of classical recordings.

With all this in mind, this site is taking a new turn:

I will be posting reviews of recordings, both old and new.  These will be carefully considered with comparative comments and links to other recordings.  Where possible, I will provide the score and/or libretto.  Historical links will be provided where applicable.  In short, you will be able to hear about and explore recordings new and old; to be able to get new ideas in your music listening; to participate in news and trends in the classical recording industry world.... not from a slick, corporate, self-serving viewpoint, but from a fellow listener with 60+ years of classical music experience on both sides of the microphone.

I hope you will come back again as I revamp the site and get writing again.

Regards to all,
Hemingway

New Site Information -- May 8, 2012

I'd like to keep everyone up to date on the future development of this site.

Back in early 2010 I suffered some very debilitating health crises. Many things have had to change over that time and I am sure you will acknowledge that my recovery took precedence over site issues. Though I am not at all back to where I was, I am now improving to the point where I can begin to participate in the site again.

The first problem that I have is to be sure that the various links work. I know that some do not. Therefore, I am asking those of you who experience the ubiquitous "File Not Found" error to take a moment to email me so the file can be re-uploaded and the link fixed. To do this please make note of the file you are looking for and then send an email to dead-links at-sign hushmail.com ........ you will appreciate this email link is presented this way to avoid "email farming".

I will do my utmost to correct all links submitted, however, as I am still very limited physically please do not expect it to be fixed overnight.

Please also note that this is for dead links only. Requests and suggestions will not be acted upon. However, if I am physically able I will take this first step to making Hemingway's Studio" the great resource we all want and need.

Thanks to you all, my friends.
