Can Someone Recommend Epic Sounding Classical Music?
    #5500493 - 04/10/06 07:01 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I just really got into Classical Music after getting Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition from the library. It's amazing and I really like it. Now can anyone recommend something epic sounding that is part of the classical genera? Thanks ahead.

why limit yourself to classical?

most of the epic classical era has been played out so much in movies, like Flight of the Valkyries for example.

If you want to hear the forefront of modern epic music, check out the band Secret Chiefs 3, it is so visual, epic and worldly.

Secret Chiefs 3 is laughable compared to something like a Ravel or Debussy or Berlioz or Beethoven or.... If you want to hear modern orchestral works check out Varese. But check out the composers I just randomly listed off above.

I would say Carl Orff. Might not be very classical, but definatly epic sounding.
His music has been used for movies like Connan the Barbarian and The Devils Advocate.

you are insane. Have you actually listened to Book of Horizons by SC3?

The End Times, and Welcome to the Theatron Animatronique are intensly epic, as well as break the constraints of western phrasing, timing, and scales.

ive heard their stuff, and almost all the composers I listed off break whatever notions you have about western phrasing and timing and scales. Considering that Varese was completely atonal.

Im not hating on the composers, especially the father of techno, they are all great, but give SC3 some credit. I mean the guy is up there with zorn and zappa as one of the greatest modern day composers.

its apples and oranges... also, zappa's career is over, Trey Spruance's isjust beginning and every album he makes is exponentially better than the next.

I think you really need to give a listen to Book of Horizons, and Book M before you pass judgement on what I think will be a composer that surpasses Glass and Cage (especially) and be ranked with zappa and zorn once history settles.

played out, but 'adigio for strings' is pretty rocking...

for modern stuff, i'm very partial to Goereki, symphony 3. very minimalist, but ooooo, gives ya the chills.

Verdi's Requiem

Certain versions of the William Tell Overture are damn epic (the one I have in mind is Bond's The 1812, though the New Age aspect may turn you off)

Godspeed You! Black Emperor, while not necessarily classic, does have a song called Storm that's crazy cool epic

Ouch!

Seriously psilocyberin dude you really cant compare Zappa or SC3 to Debussy. You just cant. Thats like comparing to Dan Brown to Shakespeare, or something. If you cant appreciate the difference then there's no point arguing about it.


In terms of epic classical in the same vein as Mussorgsky, try these other Russian masterworks:
Shostakovich Symphony Number 5 (amazing)
Stravinsky Petrushka
Sibelius Symphonies 2 & 5 (Finnish but def epic)

Really any orchestral stuff by those guys and Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, the rest are gonna be awesome. It's all about Stalinist Russia man.
