Classical Music
    #11330397 - 10/27/09 11:27 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I love classical music when I am tripping but my knowledge of it is sub-par. I find that I prefer faster paced and/or INTENSELY complex compositions. Does anyone have any suggestions? The best example (albeit a tad extreme) I can think of right now is the piece Kanye West sampled for the track "Welcome to Heartbreak" on 808s & Heartbreak (which by the way is a fucking amazing album when you are tripping).

Dunno anything about kanye west, but I'm a classical guitar major. If ya dig classical guitar check out: Cuban Landscape with Rain (Song), David Russell (Artist), Sharon Isbin (Artist), Ana Vidovic (Artist).
You have your old standards, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Bartok, Hayden, Rachmaninoff *sp. Uhhh... can't think of any others...
Someone is prolly gonna rip me apart for my limited list =.= but thaz all I got this early in the mornin

For fast, can't go wrong with Bach's Brandenburg #3 2. Adagio.
For Classical Guitar (specifically Spanish) can't go wrong with Francisco Tárrega, Federico Moreno Torroba, Isaac Albéniz etc.

I've wanted to find some apocalyptic classical for a long time now.

Anyone know of something with a bold, dark sound to it?

I know it's a pretty damn well known piece but it pretty much defines 'apocalyptic' :smile2:

My favorite for the described scenario is Vivaldi's Violin Concerto in A minor (specifically the presto and allegro movements).
Franz Liszt's Un Sospiro (third part of his Trois Etudes) is extraordinary. The tempo isn't very quick, but there are so many notes per measure that the playing is fast and complex (lots of hand crossing on the piano).
I also would recommend Scriabin's Vers la Flamme, Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (particularly the first part) , Schubert's Gretchen am Spinnrade, and Mussorgsky's A Night on Bare Mountain. These are not all with quick tempo, but you may find they keep your attention just as well.

Do you play at all? Nylon string is my main instrument (although, I haven't had one in almost a year, which is really starting to drive me nuts!)

Schubert

I have been playing classical guitar for a couple months now, but I have been playing bass since I was 13 and steel string since I was 14-15, and I'm 18 right now.
I really don't know what I wanna do with music, just had a horrible experience today in performance class, complete with panic attack and all... but I would like to do something with music in my life.

At about 44 seconds in, it becomes what annoys me most about classical music I try to listen to.

I don't know enough specific terms that apply to music to put a name on that style, but THAT at 44 seconds in is what I want to avoid in my classical explorations.

I don't think there is a term for those themes other than 'exposition', which just refers to an element of a Classical era compositional platform called Sonata form. Basically a segment of music in which melodic and harmonic themes are defined, or laid out. Seems like you're saying you just don't like the overall sound (melody, harmony, rhythm, timbre, etc.) after the 44 second mark, but as with all musical genres you have to be willing to sift through the crap to find the sound that truly tickles your fancy. Compositions as large (in both durational length and emotional stature) as most symphonies are somewhat like concept albums, with each movement broken up into individual tracks. While you detest the 'track' that starts at the 44 second mark, you may really like some elements and themes expressed later on in the first movement and/or the subsequent movements.
Don't expect all compositions in Sonata form to turn you off, though, as every composer and compositions is unique.

im not a huge classical fan but you might like this:

Opening scene from Antichrist
the music is "Lascia ch'io pianga" by G. F. Händel


when i do listen to classical i prefer the slower stuff as opposed to the hyper complex.
