This weblog is devoted to classical music in live recordings. The repertoire goes from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. The performances are either with period instruments or with modern instruments played in 'period style'.

I am planning to upload recordings which I collected from various sources. They date from the 1990s to the present. They are in mp3 format, at a bitrate of 128 kbps or higher.

You can follow the links below the track-list and information about the performance.
