    10/10

    I love Sibelius. A great and sombre waltz!

    I think (though this is going out on a big limb), Sibelius' realisation of how effective very basic musical ideas can be emotionally, is one of the things which lead to the great melancholia of his later life. Take the 5th symphony (I'm a knuckle head, I forget whether it is 2nd or 3rd movement). The movement where there is an extremely complicated build up into what is a rather basic climax, one of the most rapturous imaginable but yet pretty simple in most ways. It is the same with the first movement, the opening theme coming back after great complications all breath-taking and all. I think maybe Sibelius negatively came to the conculsion it was a cheap trick, the whole lot of it, and surely not just his music either. I'm just using this as a possible factor, not that I'd really know, simply a hypothesis.

    Probably one of Bartok's most fascinating and exciting pieces. Gyorgy Sandor is my favorite interpreter of Mikrokosmos.

    5/10. Probably a somewhat low mark because:

    A) I tend to not really like Baroque music much and
    B) In general I tend to give things low marks. I'd probably give most of my favourite works 8-9.5 rather than 10 (nothing is perfect). 5 = it was a nice piece that i'd almost say I like, although I did get a little bit bored at certain points.

    Do you love Ludwig Van Beethovens music?
    Does his life-story/music inspire you?
    Can you strongly relate to the emotions on his music?

    8/10, pretty haunting and atmospheric.

    Not classical, it's prog rock, but one of the reasons I came here too try to get into it because I wanted more like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eZ_TgE3x_A

    6/10 - maybe I need to listen to it more - seems to drag on a bit.

    More Prog Rock - quiet old too(for Prog Rock), try this

    7/10 too bad indeed - now I'm including the next piece more for humour / nostalgia, which wont be apparent to most listeners I know....

    so i get it Slim Dusty is an acquired taste? Maybe this is more listenable?

    Michael Hedges was a genius of the Guitar sadly lost way way to early!
