I hope that this is not another short-lived topic. I have been thinking lately (insert joke here
) and it struck me that this site has yet to produce a large quantity of less heard composers. There is as of now a handful (~15-20) composers with a dedicated page; but what about greats like Saint-Saens and, Liszt's rival, Rubinstein. For that matter a woman composer (Amy Beach, Cecile Chaminade)?
Have you ever given it any thought? I don't know how it could work out and maybe not even "specialize" but by showcasing more, lesser heard composers I believe that Piano Society would be the
Website for all piano listeners.
I wish I had means to better recording equipment, a decent piano, and a drop of talent; I would certainly try to contribute "more to the less".
I hope this doesn't come off as a pointless rant. I did not intend it on being one.
p.s. I am aware of the fact that the lesser heard composers are lesser heard for a reason, that being that their compositions were not that exciting back in the day. I am also aware that 99% of the contributors are hobby pianists who have lives outside of this wonderful place. I am also aware that this site is relatively young and with time the repertoire will grow substantially. *Sigh*.
