    New paper from a group of music theorists focuses on atonal music. They conclude that "analysts of ... atonal music have been systematically misled for more than a century."

    Suppose the advent of cinema were a century earlier, many great films made between 1830-1910 were the products of Romanticism and Post-romanticism (like the visualizations of the music of Chopin, Wieniawski, Rachmaninov, etc.) What would those films look like? Could you name some films...

    Béla Bartók's music is not one of my favorites and not one that I listen to often. But I do have a suspicion that he was one of the most important 20th century composer, certainly for the first half of the century. For example, his popular six string quartets must be one of the most influential...

    This title is about as good as I could do to summarize the stuff I want to opine about. We all grow up listening to certain music, and that music generally ends up sounding good or pleasant throughout our whole life, or at least we understand it well enough. But new music requires that you...

    This poll is not about anyone else but yourself as a listener of 20th century and contemporary avant-garde music if you are a listener of such. How well do you think you know the music? It is whatever this question may mean to you or if you are confused by this question, then you may well...

    A sort of spin-off based on the parallel "Top Three 20th Century Ballets". Which do you consider to be the best 14th Century motets?

    Any recommendations? I've been listening to some of Schubert's songs recently, and wanted to see what the twentieth century had to offer in that department.
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    The 18th century is musically, every bit as worthy as the following and preceding centuries, some would argue more, perceiving it to be the golden age. I will not make any such claims, and merely want to start a discussion for expanding curiosity, knowledge, and aural affinity for the multitude...

    Prokofiev wrote seven symphonies. Which one(s) are your favorite(s)? Mine are the first (Classical, which is ever so popular of course) and his last one, the seventh. He certainly ranks as one of the finest last great 20th...

    Florence Foster Jenkins - American dramatic operatic soprano whose daring approach to standard fare of Mozart, Verdi, and Brahms exhibited a bold and sometimes reckless style that exemplifies some of the most memorable voices of the early 20th century. Immortalized in various recordings, she...

    I've listened to nearly all of this today (I'm up to Erwartung now) and enjoyed it quite a bit: Happy 90th, Pete!! (and before anyone tries to stir up controversy, please note that the title of the list...

    Something that's been bouncing around my head after reading through some old threads.... An ideal that's often endorsed here and elsewhere is that the best way to listen to music is to be as open-minded as possible. Approach every piece with the assumption that it's good; engage with it on its...

    I listened to Humperdinck's opera Konigskinder. It was not a bad piece but is easily overshadowed by many other Romantic operas from the mid to late 19 century. Humperdinck is another one of those names who don't get much of a mention. Do you think he is underrated?

    This morning I received an invitation for a duel (not a drinking contest) from a fellow TC member. I have after no hesitation decided to accept your dare for me to listen to Franz Lizst for a whole month. I have set some ground rules for the dare modified from your rather ambiguous post here...
