I though a good idea for a topic might be people's favourite works in each of the (primary) fine arts.
Music is probably the most appreciated art on this forum - certainly the most discussed - but I thought it might be interesting to hear which other works of art people love, like or admire.
These are the primary fine arts I think should be included:
- Theatre (incl. plays, musicals, operas and ballets)
If you are unfamiliar with one or more fields, just list your favourites in the others. And please try to limit it to only a few (a max of five, I'd say) in each category - or even just one work if you have an absolute favourite.
Also, if you feel like it, it would be fun to see which of the fine arts people consider the finest of all.
Some discussion and comments would be great, too!
Here is my list:
Beethoven's Ninth Symphony
Beethoven's Fifth Symphony
Mozart's Clarinet Concerto
Bach's Second Violin Concerto
Michelangelo's "The Last Judgment"
There's no doubt in my mind that this is the greatest piece of painting art in the world. It's incredible.
Frank Darabont's "The Shawshank Redemption" (1994)
Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" (1982)
Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968)
I consider music the finest of the arts.
