    Default Corny music

    Many things are corny for me:

    Ravel: Bolero (one ad eternum tune )
    Verdi: La Traviata ( listened to it too many times)
    Mozart: petite musique nocturne ( listened to it too many times)
    Rachmaninov: piano 2nd concerto (whining)
    Tchaikovsky: piano concerto no. 1 ( listened to it too many times)
    Brahms: Hungarian dances. ( listened to it too many times)
    Rossini: Overture of Le Barbiero di Seviglia, Guilelmo Tell ( listened to it too many times)
    Notice that sometimes too many times, means 3 times!

    Add your choices....and maybe you could explain why
    ...............................
    And many others

    Mozart: "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik"
    Tchaikovsky: "1812 Overture"
    Beethoven: "Moonlight sonata, first movement"
    Vivaldi: "Four Seasons, Spring, first movement"

    All of them because of their overuse in pop culture as being representative of classical music as a whole.

    Who could forget the work of that great composer Anonymous: 'Minuet in G'.

    A lot of 19th century lieder about guys who think the world is ending because the girls they like aren't that into them can be eye roll-inducing, but I often like them anyway. (Winterreise, Wayfarer, etc.) I guess it's the text that is corny, more than the music.

    Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez - esp. the original version, I don't seem to mind arrangements (eg. Miles Davis' famous one, or our own Tommy Emmanuel's).

    I think that it's a pity that this is always chosen if a group wants to do a guitar concerto live, because it's had it's due, virtually everyone on that planet knows it. I wish say Villa-Lobos' Concerto for guitar and small orchestra would get more of an outing, esp. since that was the piece that got me into V-L. Can't say the same for Rodrigo, his Aranjuez has not encouraged me to venture any further into his output. Ironically, the V-L was on the "B side" of a vinyl LP I got cheap as chips a few years back, the Rodrigo was on the "A side," & I ended up listening much more to the former. I've now got the V-L work on CD with quite a few of his other things...

    The end of Copland's Billy the Kid is corny, up to 2'16", but it's supposed to be.

    Maybe van Beethoven's fifth as VD mentioned but only because of that dagnet disco song and all of the ringtones and commercials and spanish soap operas; NOT because I've invested a whole and grand three listens to it...if ever I've read something I wish were an exaggeration it is the notion that '3 times' is a lot to have listened to a piece...using the same composer as an example: an average performance of the glorious 9th is about one hour. Just bringing this one piece to mind, I've listened to it at least a couple of hundred times; that's only a little more than eight days...the Tchai One; at least a hundred (ten of which, live)...the Rach 2, over a hundred (couple dozen live)...it just goes on and on and this goes down into the Mazurkas and Ballades and pretty much every piece has gotten well over 3 listens...even the ones I never cared for and only heard on the radio...sad to think of attention span having been reduced to such a place.
