As far as the secrets of music are concerned, I grew up reading many of them, especially in the first years of my musical education. When I was at school, I also played the violin and piano, and I wrote a musical thriller both in high school and college.
While I enjoy dark, grainy secrets, it is the cosy, traditional and cheerful ones that are most dear to my heart, the most cosy, traditional and carefree. Special Encounters Events delves deep into the stories, songs and musical secrets to explore what hidden secrets lie in the music we think we know. Learn how these secrets can influence the making of great music and enjoy free performances and discussions in popular music, classical music and jazz.

Musical Mysteries is an English-language blog that specializes in classical music and opera. After studying jazz piano at Humber College, Claire immersed herself in classical piano composition while simultaneously studying synthesizer theory and electronic music. She has collaborated with the New York Philharmonic, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Canadian Opera House on local and international projects of various genres.
Musical Mysteries seems to be on hiatus at the moment, no articles have been published in 3 months, but since then we have written and published a total of 20 articles. The first article on the blog, “The New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Canadian Opera House,” is from 2011 – 12 – 02.
We hope to put the three novels we have published on the site into an e-book, but that’s over for now. We will let you know when they are available, as well as the publication date of the book itself.
Reminder: The four-part “Dissonance” started in October 2009 (see archive), and “Time Bends a Sickle” in April 2010 (archive).
Two phrenologists steal the head of Joseph Haydn, hoping to see if the genius of the composer is somehow reflected in the bumps and ridges of his skull. The wig is still on site, however, and the phenologists say another skull is buried with the rest of the body. Eleven years later, Esterhazy is surprised to discover that Haydi’s remains have a skull and want it transferred, but have behaved as if they had been moved.
A fascinating letter addressed to Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” was never sent and was found in the composer’s possession after his death. He never married, and he did not write a date or place on the letter until 1950, when an analysis of the paper’s watermark shows it was written in 1812.
The theory that Beethoven wrote between the two is generally based on two sources: a letter to an educated woman in Vienna in 1812 and a letter from the composer to his wife. Musical Mysteries was chosen by soClassiQ as a qualified source because we believe that its articles contribute fully to our knowledge of classical music and opera. We invite visitors and members to discover it, leaving it up to everyone to express their own opinion, whether they like it or prefer other writings.

The first book in Cressa Carraway’s music crime series is Kaye George’s A Little Murder. It is the first book in their series and is set in a rural seaside resort. The main character is a composer and aspiring conductor who is trying to compose a symphony at the resort when he is involved in a murder investigation.
George does a great job of weaving music and themes into the story, but here’s the most lasting. The book also contains some of the best descriptions of what the world of classical music had to do with the murder of a composer in the early 20th century and the subsequent investigation.
The best known is Nimrod No 9, but the subject itself is a mystery, and it consists of a series of Elgar themes, the most famous of which is Nimrod No 9. ElGar draws the melody from the first two parts of his first symphony, the “First Symphony” and the second half of the third symphony.
All this is the incentive that generations of cryptologists and music lovers have needed to solve the enigma that underlies the piece.
One of the most famous melodies ever written has been lost, but a long-dead great composer returned to the medium in the 1970s. The Londoner Rosemary Brown caused a stir when she claimed that a dead composer had dictated a new piece of music to her.
