You know, I had always thought my training in "classical" music through college was good...but I feel like I must've missed out on a lot of important points. I was taught over and over again that any vibrato on the clarinet was bad form. (This information was just offered in normal classroom environments when discussing the proper playing of the clarinet. This information wasn't aimed at me, as I didn't use vibrato back then.)

When I attended college, we didn't have easy access to recordings or live performances by masters. We had a listening room where we could put on communal headphones and plug into either reel-to-reel tape or LPs, but there was seldom a station open to listen at. I aimlessly would buy CD's/LP's but didn't have any direction, and wasn't able to optimize those resources as a result. I'm sad that I missed so much, and now want to go hear all the things I missed.

You've all mentioned so much in this discussion that I'll be listening to a lot more classical music this summer to try to hear what you're referring to.

Thanks!! This bulletin board is a wonderful place.
