"Classical music"
    #944376 - 10/09/02 02:56 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Before on these boards I've taken a slagging for listening to Classical music, but come on, who else listens to it? I'm a music student so obviously it's my degree, but I would anyway cause I love it.

Just now I'm listening to Messian (Quartet for the End of Time), Avro Part (Fractras and I am the True Vine), Shostakovich and Bach (both shitloads); mostly.

If you've never/rarely listened to classical music, make an effort and check some out. It's worth it. And don't just go for Mozart, Beethoven etc. If you don't like that, that doesn't mean shit. That's like using the Beatles to represent all of rock/pop/hip hop/trance/drum n bass/techno etc.

Some excellent, quite mainstream, easily accesable tripping/stoning music is:
Barber: Adagio for Strings
Elgar: Serenade for Strings
Messian: Tarangualina (sp.) Symphony - incredible sounds
Shostakovich: Symphony no. 5
Tchaikovsky: Ballet Suites
Debussy, Prokofiev, Grieg, and obviously all the famous master guys Bach Beethoven Brahms Mozart etc

etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc...............

I love classical music. I often listen to the classical radio station at work. And I have a small but decent collection of CDs. One of my favorites is "The Planets" by Gustav Holst. There are some amazing pieces of music in there.

I use to get a lot of shit from my friends in High School. I was part of the punk rock scene but we would get into my car to go somewhere and I would have a classical cassette in the tape player (the days before CDs). My punk friends would start making fun of my "elevator music". I would make them listen to it and tell them that they had no culture.

i can never understand how someone can knock classical music... it fully develops musical theory and expression, so other genres can exist...
i love
Vivaldi - four seasons - summer
Bach - Brandenburg concertos, many prelude and fugues.. just about anything
beethoven - walstein, every symphony (i'm stoked we're analyzing Eroica in music theory now)
mozart - just about everything
Schumann, Shubert, dvorak, ( i don't like brahms, he's overrated) Liszt, pucini, Haydn, debussy is great.

i like the romantic period stuff, but i also love the bigguns of classical and baroque.

Good post, the world needs Classical Music Appreciation. the world needs to know how genius some of these pieces are, and some of these composers (ahem beethoven...)

i mostly like more modern stuff
check out

terry riley
rainbow in curved air

or almost anything that
the kronos quartet does
their last album nuevo
is amazing
(they also did the soundtrack to requiem for a dream)

i saw a documentary last night on a guy named
harry partch
who worked with semitones scales on homemade instruments

i like semitones. i think that the well tempered clavier is the enemy. it is such a nearly inescapable rut. i have also worked pretty hard to rid myself of my sense of rhythm. its much harder than it sounds. 2s against 3s. 5s, 7s & 11s. its the 4/4, I / IV / V resolve that is so hard to break.

i really dont like the classical label. is aphex twin classical? he should be. what about pink floyd? is their classicalism watered down because they compose as a group? why isnt jazz classical? is there a more horrible form of expression than opera? i doubt it.

sorry i kinda got side tracked
listen to
george antheil
ballet mechanique

'classical' meant 1750something or 1760something to 1820, i think. that's what it originally referred to. people started calling that bunch of time in music the 'classical era' after one of the famous guys died. beethoven, maybe.

they called it 'classical' because it was looking back to the first classical era, i guess. the one in greece. no one knows what music people were playing in greece way back then but they wrote lots of stuff about how music should sound. all of the nu-classical composers wanted to follow all that stuff and write super-perfect stuff.

before the 'classical' part in music came the 'baroque,' i think. i'm not really sure. then the 'romantic' came after the classical.

i learned all of that in school.

okay. it's possible to really like classical music but not be able to name any composers, really. or anything like that. it's always on radio 2. cbc. but-- except when it's jazz. but mostly. i like the kind that's really baroque-y and has maximum harpsichord action. i know that i like debussy and erik satie, too, tchaikovsky, stravinsky, vivaldi.

ts not something I listen to a lot, but I'd like to get a few CD's. Maybe I'll download some of the stuff you guys listed later today.

How do they write classical music? They write the music for each insturment individuially right?

Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Schubert, Respighi, and Rossini are some favorites. I like John Adams and Arvo Part (heard a little) too.
Oh, can't forget Holst's "The Planets" and Ligeti's music for 2001: Space Oddesey.

I know this is a little of the subject but here is something that I ran into searching for headphones.

Vivaldi Winter Excerpt
One of the best recordings I have ever heard

Better yet put on some headphones and turn them up.

Yup, from his Four Seasons violin concertos, right? They're great.

Shit, they're played on marimbas though! I might have to get that, it sounds pretty good

what do you play?
whats you favorite piece to play?

i play violin
my favorite solo piece is probably
czardas
by monte
its not very difficult but its fast and fun
i dig that crazy gypsy sound

my favorite pieces that i have played with an orchestra are
rapsody in blue-gershwin
new world symphony-dvorak
2nd piano concerto-rachmaninov
bolero-ravel

favorite chamber music
musical joke-mozart
american quartet-dvorak

i think my least favorite composer to play is
bach
i respect his technical genius but
playing it is about as much fun as a stick in your eye
or maybe verdi's la traviata
which is really unimaginably boring

I play cello, and piano (allegedly). Favourite piece to play is a bit of a tough question, but orchetrally the best thing I've ever played is Shostakovich 5th symphony, chamber probably Borodin String Quartet 2 or Schubert Piano Trios, solo Haydn Cello Conerto.

I know what you mean about Bach; some people love him, some people hate him. I love him though; there's so much more there than just technical genius. Listen to stuff like the St Matthew Passion, the Bach Solo cello suites (played well, eg by Casals); they're incredibly profound pieces of music.

+1, dude. Kronos Quartet is one of my absolute favorites.

I have a love/hate relationship with classical music. As much as I respect all classical composers, a lot of it sounds to typical. I really like the minimalist structure of the Kronos Quartet; they always put out incredibly atmospheric and simple yet haunting music that makes my skin crawl. Orchestral music hardly ever has this effect on me. I feel that Kronos Quartet is like the Pink Floyd of classical music. Kind of like how Pink Floyd is the classical music of rock, even though I honestly wouldn't even consider them a rock band based on their compositions.

Some contemporary stuff I really dig:
Jonathan Elias
Vitamin String Quartet
Sigur Ros
Nobuo Uematsu (check out the Final Fantasy X: Piano Collections. One of my all-time favorite albums)
Kerry Muzzy
