Any classical music fans out there?
    #452472 - 11/09/01 03:07 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone out there has a love for classical music and if so I'd be in your debt if you could share with me some of your favorite works.

Thanks... The man in the mirror

Classical music really varies, depending on whether you are talking about baroque, romantic, etc. I think 20th century composers are the best. Rachmaninov is at the top of my list, check out his piano concertos particularly Variations on a theme by Paginini... it blows me away.

Also: Holst (The planets suite), Dvorak (New World Symphony), Stravinsky, Shostakovich.

Of course I have particular taste, so this might not do it for you.

Sweet, thanks I'll look into those.
I'd say I like most anything that isin't military sounding. but I do like solo instrument pieces more so then say, symphonys. I was wondering though if you knew of any good violin pieces, something that's I guess you could say romantic or just soothing to the soul.

Thanks... The man made of clay

I'm a big fan of Wagner, but most classical music fans don't agree. If you're not familiar with Wagner, he wrote "Ride Of The Valkaries". That was the piece that Col. Kilgor played in the helicopters as they invaded the beach in "Appocalypse Now".

Man, I love calssical! As for favorites....hmmmm, where to start! There is so much good stuff out there.

You cant go wrong with almost anything by Beethoven. His 9th and 5th symphonies are two of the most recognizable pieces of classical music, and probably two of the best.

Also Mozart. Almost nothing bad in his entire works.

And try Bach. Particularly the "Brandenburg Concertos" and a great piece called "Toccata and Fugue"

Also try "Bollero" (by Ravel, I think) and "Rhapsody in Blue" (I forget his name at the moment). And also "The Planets" by Gustav Holst are fantastic!!

Also try some Tchaikovsky, his popular stuff like "The Nutcracker Suite" or the "1812 Overture". And there is a neat piece by Carl Orff called "Carmina Burana".

Thats just a few off the top of my head that stand out. But don't be afraid to experimet with almost anything classical. Theres nothing quite like it!

yeah pimp, wagner is good shit. I wouldn't call him soothing though. ;)

Soothing violin pieces... Violin concertos by mozart and beethoven come to mind. That new world symphony by Dvorak I mentioned earlier has some parts that are soooooo mellow, but not strictly violin. Once again I recommend it.

I'm a big classical music fan, my uncle got me into it when i was little and its always stuck. My favorite all time composer is JS Bach, i also like Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Handel, and Mozart of course.

good post! I have nothing to recommend because I don't have any classical music, accept a accoustic guitar cd with bach compositions wich is pretty nice.

I'm keeping my eye open for recommendations, I want some more classical in my collection :thumbup:

Bach is the fuckin man.

listen to "Passacaglia & Fugue in C minor BWV 582"
"Fantasia And Fugue BWV 561"
"Tocatta And Fugue BWV 565"
"Partite Diverse Sopra Ach, Was Soll Ich S?nder Machen BWV 770"
and well, any other organ composition by him

his music is very mathematical and awe-inspiring, i remember listening to his organ songs on acid and its wicked,tonnes of patterns.
try the "goldberg variations" too, and the "well-tempered clavier" books 1 and 2

Also for my more light-hearted listening try Robert Schumann, he has a collection of short simple piano songs called "scenes from childhood" which is really great,his ability to capture subtle feelings and emotions is nice

Check out

Hector Berlioz-"Symphonie Fantastique". Very "psychedelic" for classical music.
