    Default This music is literally making me feel sick.

    Everyone but Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach is starting to make me feel physically sick. Pretty much everything post Beethoven is giving me a serious downer and I have no idea why. Something is seriously wrong. This music is making me sick.

    You need to see a Doctor of Music. Contact your nearest University and ask for an appointment.

    Make sure you see a doctor that specializes in cases of nausea induced by 19th century post-Beethoven music. In my experience, the doctors that see victims of 20th century music are typically backed up at least 6 months if you're trying to make an appointment as a new patient.

    Perhaps if you listen to some Beethoven, Mozart, and Bach played on the accordion you might be able to once again stomach music by post Beethoven composers.

    But Boldertism could go private, couldn't he? You know, ask for a private 'off-the-books' consultation, jump the queue? That said, I have no faith in UK Doctors of Music, I think he should go to Germany.

    Then keep listening to B, M, and B. It's not like their combined oeuvre is small!

    Take two Mendelssohns and call me in the morning.

    And keep strictly to the dosage recommended by the above Doctor (Mus.). If feelings of nausea persist, switch to anti-depression medication such as Xanaxis.

    Don't you mean Xenakis?

    Xanax (anti-depression medication) + Xenakis (French-Greek composer) = Xanaxis !!

    Good lord Vishnu, I think the TC forum should patent these two new wonder drugs for those suffering from nausea caused by this latest pathogen hereafter termed OCABMB (from the Latin omnes cantus absque Beethoven, Mozart et Bach*).
    We shall make a fortune, but please, major slices of sales revenue first to Nerrefid (inventor of the Mendelssohns anti-nausea opiate) and yours truly. Thank you.

    (*) All music excepting BMB

    You might like to try more Baroque, say Handel, Corelli, Vivaldi, Scarlatti, and the transition to Classicism composers like Bach's sons. Then try Haydn (both brothers). Nothing can be seriously wrong.

    Welcome to TalkClassical by the way.

    I'm assuming you are at least listening to Beethoven Bach and Mozart in historically informed performances?

    Please don't disappoint me.

    Also, have you heard William Schuman's Symphonies or Persichetti's Piano Sonatas or Schoenberg's Violin Concerto?

    Keep in touch!!
