How can one set of music have such sublime and mundane music side by side?

Baroque Choral Music Filter: I love the kind of baroque choral music with multiple parts going on simultaneously or in very close interaction, providing a gorgeous complex polyphonic tapestry that transcends language and sends me to heaven (as JS intended!). I very much dislike the soloists droning on in German against the orchestra. Which albums have more of the former? [more inside]

Finding contemporary classical fans online and in the real world

I love contemporary classical music, but I don't know enough other people that do too. Aside from Sequenza21, what are some good resources for meeting people online that share this interest? Also, aside from attending local events (I live in Madison, WI), can anybody suggest ways to meet people in person who are also fans? BTW, if this is an interest of yours too, feel free to send a message.

peter & wolf recording with the line "lope ... waddle ... waddle ... lope"

Looking for an audio version of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Peter and the Wolf" that I heard in the 1980s where the narrator describing the wolf pursuing the duck says, breathlessly, "Lope ... waddle ... waddle ... lope ..." (describing their movements, with violins screeching in the background). I am looking for the particular recording that said it this way. It is particularly humorous and has great narration by a male voice in English. I thought it was the Peter Ustinov, but apparently not, as I bought it and it doesn't have this line (unless there is an alternative version floating around).

After hearing a really moving piece, I'm looking to get into choral music.

I recently stumbled upon this piece by John Tavener. It really gets going at the 2:20 mark. I love the rich chords and, at times, heavy bass of the piece. I want to get into this choral music, whether it is old Gregorian chant stuff or contemporary, but I don't know where to start! Anyone have any recommendations to start off with?

drummers complaining about tuning. lol.

Half remembered anecdote from a music class I took long ago: "A great German percussionist(?) travels to India in the 20's(?), and on returning says that the trip was a complete waste of time. Not only were the musicians always out of tune, but - most infuriatingly - they were always out of tune in exactly the same way!" Can anyone peg an attribution onto this story? [more inside]
