  1. Vocal Music
    Over the years I've collected and listened to a great deal of Mozart. Of late, I've pretty much only been listening to Mozart. One area of his output, however, that I've never listened to is his lieder. As appears to be the case with Haydn, lieder by Mozart is considered by many to be...
  2. Classical Music Discussion
    I have listened classical music for 2 years, mostly symphonic works and some choral works recently. I have listened(listened means listened completely more than 15 times) all symphonies of Brahms; 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 of Beethoven; 9 of Dvorak; 4, 5, 6 of Tchaikovsky; 1, 4, 5, 6,7 of Mahler...
  3. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    I just listened to his short one act opera "La Vida Breva". I thought it was a fine piece of late Romantic opera. I have listened to some of his other instrumental works before but none really impressed me as much as this one act opera. What do you think of MDF? Is he a great composer according...
  4. Classical Music Discussion
    Over the last few weeks I've been listening on spotify to recordings made by Herbert von Karajan to try to get more familiar with his style, and unfortunately I keep finding myself wanting to listen to another interpretation of whatever piece instead of Karajan's. This is a conductor who is...

    Sorry, cannot upload music attachment.
  6. Non-Classical Music
    I am a very anxious person. One of the ways to calm myself down is listening to music that makes me cry. I don't know Arvo Pärt much besides this track, and what I've listened to was frankly disappointing. But does anything like this exist, somewhere? If anyone will help me I'll be very...

    I'm curious what composers you find to be under-appreciated, and by that I mean not listened to enough. (Please take note that this is not my opinion, just an example.) It could be someone major who is already respected and already performed often, like Saint-Saens or Mendelsohn, or could be...

    Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) was a late-Romantic Danish composer. I listened to his opera Antikrist, a 20th century masterpiece composed in the early 1920s. He wrote over 400 works overall. He doesn't seem like a composer who gets much mention. I think his music is quite accessible as proven by...
  9. Orchestral Music
    This may make me seem hopelessly reactionary (the noise you hear are my friends going into hysterics) but how many here have listened to the music of George Lloyd (1913-1998) and what are your thoughts about him?

    I have listened to little of Vivaldi's work. I just listened to Concerto Grosso D minor. I was struck by how much the fugue section sounded to me like the fugue at the end of Rocky, 'Rocky's Reward' by Bill Conti (which I always associated with Bach before that). Here's the fugue part: Here's...

    I was sorting categories this morning on iTunes and saw the "Plays" option, which tells you what works/songs you've listened to the most. I just reconfigured my iTunes library in October so my data isn't that old. I also realize this thread will only work for digital listeners. So, go to your...
