    I'd like your opinion on what you think about the genres Chopin was the best at writing.
  3. Solo & Chamber Music
    I've recently been listening to a large amout of Piano Trio music, it's a very addictive, engaging genre. In your opinion, what may make this so? :D
  4. Non-Classical Music
    This is my favorite melodic-speed/neoclassical/symphonic/power metal band at the moment, but mostly due to their first two albums with the female vocalist (which is strange because usually I'm not into female vocals). Their songs might not be overwhelmingly impressive for a serious highbrow...

  9. Non-Classical Music
    imo, symphonic metal is the only electric guitar-heavy musical genre which successfully manages to sound elegant and melodious (even soothing at times, which is extremely unusual among metal pieces in general). some of my favorites are: PS: no, not all symphonic metal bands have female...

    Okay with the budding interest I see about electro-acoustic/electronic and fairly radical forms of classical music, I feel that it is time for us folks to share wonderful pieces in these genre. So I will start off with this: Babbitt's piece is a classic of this genre. So why did I start a...
