    Gliere remind me of some sort of miix crossover between Zemlinsky & Rimsky-korsakov?

  5. Non-Classical Music
    The German Composers and Nazis thread got me thinking of jazz in Nazi Germany. Jazz was labeled as "entartete musik" or "degenerate music." They saw it as a Jewish-Negro amalgam and therefore wholly without merit. But they were not entirely stupid about it. Prior to the Nazis, during the...

  12. Classical Music Discussion
    I tend to prefer Latin and German over Italian, French and, especially, English when it comes to vocal music. Now, before you jump on me, let me tell you that I majored in English Literature at the University, so the prejudice card or the lack of factual knowledge are off the table. I don't...
  13. Non-Classical Music
    I've recently taken an interest in pop music - namely, German and Russian pop (Louisan, Cro, 5sta Family, and so on. I think these artists are worth a listen - if you do decide to, I'd love to hear what you think of them!). I think it's really interesting with what they do with their music, and...
