So today, the one-year anniversary of this blog, I'll do a third post looking back at some of the stuff I was talking about a year ago.
Here is a post on Chopin that gives a brief summary of why he is such an important composer.
Here is another on the difference between virtuosity and musicality.
Here is the first of several posts talking about the problem of harmony.
Here is a more philosophical post about music and emotion.
Here is one talking about music criticism.
And finally, here is a post about some classical "one-hit wonders".
