  2. Classical Music Discussion
    So we all have an understanding of the sequence of events, throughout the 20th century concert halls started programming less and less new music until we reached the state we're in now. Regardless of why this happened composers couldn't rely on their music being performed anymore, there was a...

    Morton Feldman is my favorite composer of all time by far. Sometimes it seems like I am the only one who truly appreciates him. I have yet to hear a composer with even a vaguely similar musical voice as him. I feel like there should be composers inspired by him. He is my greatest inspiration but...

    Hi. I've been listening to classical for about a year and explored its various periods. One which I haven't listened to much is Modernism. What I've heard I haven't liked or better put, enjoyed. Now, I don't want to just pick a work from the top recommended lists, as I fear it may make me...

    I can relate to what she said in a sense. I like listening to classical music but at the end, the present and all the music to come is the one I'm insterested in. Maybe that's why I prefer contemporary music over baroque, classical, etc.

    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.

    Really interesting music from Soviet Russia, but in the period following Shostakovich and into the 1980s and 1990s. I've been listening to some of his early symphonies, and finding them quite interesting and enjoyable. One I've been especially listening to is Symphony 3, where at a certain...

    Most of them said that he was an impressionist. What i heard from my professor is, Debussy did not 'labelled' himself as an impressionist or whatever but some of Desbussy 's music was influenced by the symbolism. It sounds right to me because one of his work le sons et les parfums is related to...
  9. Orchestral Music
    I am hearing Tutuguri I type this and this might be the first modernist work that I've enjoyed thoroughly [Some reviews criticize the overly long 38 minute percussion-heavy Part II - haven't reached there yet and may like it]. (Rite of Spring, Debussy's and Ravel's Piano Works left me unchanged...

    I personally find it hard to choose between the last and the second last option. edit: argh, forgot to make this poll public.
  11. Orchestral Music
    I really want to avoid asking so vague of a question and sounding ignorant of orchestral music and the greats that have composed them, but as a musical novice only starting to have in interest in orchestral music I find myself in a predicament. I absolutely love orchestral music, however, there...
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    I already posted a Puccini thread over on the Opera forum, which got a little testy. That thread was supposed to be a look at whether this composer should get a little reevaluation in critical circles. I thought it would be interesting to see what the people on the straight classical music...
