  3. Identifying Classical Music
    Hello everybody, I'm new here! I'm trying to find a piece of classical music which I'm 90 % sure belongs to Shostakovich. The best way I can describe it is: it's a brief piece (3 to 6 minutes). It starts out very grim and slow, maybe some wind instruments. And then, out of nowhere, a piano...

    I am looking for the names of two different classical piano pieces. These two short audio snippets are all the information I have. I don't know the names of the composers. My guess is that they are not both composed by the same person. Thank you for your help! I apologize for the crackling...

  10. Non-Classical Music
    Anyone else has this problem? I find it very difficult to find stuff that is in the sweet spot in terms of complexity & comprehensibility. Classical is too long-winded and requires too many listenings to get. Popular is underwhelming from an analytical standpoint. Progressive rock etc. is...
