Music Website News



Musique Ancienne

An early music site in French, with information about early music history and scores. Nice graphics (but a little heavy on its use of frames for my liking). Don't miss the link at the very bottom left of the page - Mascherata de Gastoldi - this is good use of MIDI for those who like to listen whilst they explore the web.


Dead conductors page

There's no arguing with the title of this web page - accurate, 'down to earth', succinct and not especially flattering.


What is the COE?

You can find the answer at, a site providing details of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe's current concert season and recordings.

Seth Williamson has about 140 reviews of classical music websites at Net Notes - Although similar in a way to Site Seeing, Net Notes has a different flavour, more along the lines of CD or concert reviews.

Early music enthusiasts can then, for example, visit all the sites in the Charles' ring. For further information about the system itself, visit


Leamington Winter Season

Preliminary details of the Warwick Arts Society's Winter Season (held in the Leamington Spa area of the UK, and including a concert by the Lindseys on 8 October) are now available at


Golden sections

Use of the Fibonacci series to generate the golden section - that special ratio considered to give the rectangle with the most visually pleasing proportions - has attracted its fair share of interest from the music world (including at least one group named after the phenomenon), and not only from modern composers.
