  2. Non-Classical Music
    Personally, I'm not that against that change in popular music because I like a lot of Rap Music which focuses in rhymes and the structure of the beat. I think there are very interesting acts today that focus on rhythm and other aspects of music.
  3. Non-Classical Music
    Let this thread be thread where we can share the beautiful music that is known only locally - in one country or nation and that for different reasons is not gaining international attention.

  6. Music Theory
    Hello everyone. Not quite sure how to word what I'm asking here. I know quite a bit about theory, and have been writing music for several years now. My question is not regarding transitioning from one theme to another, it's more about staying in the same theme, but extending it out a little. Now...

    Where is the border where modernism still hold's its tonal melodicism? Schnittke's Concerto Grosso 2 is one example for me, Einojuhani Rautavaara - Piano Concerto No. 1 is another.

  12. Identifying Classical Music
    Like everyone (almost) else who posts on here, I'm going crazy trying to remember which song this melody is from. Except I have no external link of the song, it's just repeating in my head. I played in on a midi keyboard and uploaded to this post. I looped the melody twice and put a hi hat in...

  16. Solo & Chamber Music
    I have a melody stuck in my head which I am 100% certain is Dvorák, from one of his string quartets or quintets. Been searching the web/YouTube for days but haven't had time to go through every movement of every piece as YouTube generally does not list separate movements. Even contacted some...
  17. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Some composers are gifted melody writers - Handel, Mozart, Schubert, Tchaikovsky. Others are less so, such as Beethoven, Bruckner. So my question to you is do you think some great composers, all genius, but are naturally more gifted in melody than others, also genius?
  18. Music Theory
    How common they are in tonal, non-serial music? How many can really hear the connection between the "original" melody and the retrogade version on intellectual or instictual level?
