  1. Identifying Classical Music
    My uncle just came abroad from France and he hummed a beginning of a piece which he wanted to know the name of... Anyway I played what he hummed on the piano and it's only 3 notes : sol#, sol, do# I thought at first it might be the beginning of Rachmaninoff prelude in c# minor but he didn't...
  2. Composer Guestbooks
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolai_Roslavets Russian modernist composer who's music was suppressed for a long time. Scriabin was a big influence (he even looks like him a little bit). His music is partially lost or in the process of being restored. I'm usually a fairly conservative listener...
  3. Identifying Classical Music
    Hi all! I have four pieces I played as part of my Middle School's orchestra that I can't remember the names or composers of. All attempts to identify it by means of Shazam or any other music identification applications have failed. You guys are my last hope! Due to the forum rules, I will post...

    Hello everybody, When I was younger, I learned a piece of piano music that is most probably classical. Most of the pieces I learned were classical or old folk pieces. I remembered some of it and played it on the piano, but can't for the life of me find what it actually is. Here are dropbox...
  5. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Part of a continuing series of polls, which simply asks: Which of these works do you like? My goal is to build a general picture of the musical interests on TC. Please vote for *all* of the pieces you like. Options are available for voters who don't know any of the works, and those who know...

    No explanation needed. I guess If you are bored you could just discuss about their colours, your favourite pieces with them, the physics involved or whatever.
  7. Composer Guestbooks
    Edison Denisov (1929-1996) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edison_Denisov Apparently Denisov didn´t have a thread already, so it´s time for it .... Overall, his work is more varied and less gloomy or uniform, than one´s first impression of it may be, if sampling some of the well-known pieces...

    Hey, guys! I've just found an old cassette tape with the tale of Cinderella recorded on it. There are two classical pieces heard once or twice while the story goes, which I tried to identify but without any success. I don't even know if they were written by the same composer. I've recorded the...

    I'm going to put this out there in the hope someone might help me, even though I don't even know if this is or can be considered classical music. It COULD be an orchestral version of a contemporary song, but bear with... I heard this lovely piece in a Brazilian telenovela (don't judge) and have...

    Whoops, that title should read "...pieces or recordings of classical music". It's a strange thread title, I know, but what are some sassy pieces or recordings of pieces that you've heard? Think of some works or recordings that seem to describe arguments or are steeped heavily in sarcasm. The...

    What I mean is, are the warhorses, those pieces that supposedly everyone knows and has heard to death, the pieces you know well enough or have heard often enough to be worthy of the label warhorse?
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    Some pieces of music are popular and are played, and listened to a lot. Other pieces are more obscure and are not played, or listened to very often. There is a reason for this, simply the popular pieces are better musically. Some "Experts" will claim that some of the more obscure pieces...
  13. Classical Music Discussion
    I know, I know, everyone's tired of seeing the same old "underrated composer" thread. But to add a little twist, in your opinion, what are some Russian (and only Russian) Composers who don't get enough credit? And what are some of your favorite pieces by them?
  14. Solved Cases (archive)
    These are two pieces of orchestra/classical music I heard in the background of a show. I'm pretty sure the first one is an actual classical piece, the second one is very brief and may just be some background music made for the show. At least that is my guess. If anyone can tell me what they are...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Pretty interesting article, and accompanying video demo. "Classical piano pieces by such composers as Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin likely sounded much different when the masters first performed those works than they do today. Pianos themselves have changed considerably - but so, too, has...
  16. Classical Music Discussion
    I'm always walking on eggshells with music vocabulary but hopefully you understand what I mean. I'm looking for more pieces like the first preludes of WTC and the cello suites, where the theme loops and is developed more by harmony than melodic variation, if I'm even using those terms correctly...
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    I do a lot of commuting and yes I don't drive. So I am always on the move. What pieces remind you of travel or movement or something relaxing like a good car ride or relaxed plane flight? Or pieces that inspire you to travel to new places?
  18. Classical Music Discussion
    My favorite pieces by Bach are his Violin Partitas and Sonatas; I love them so much that I have been tired of them for awhile now, and so I am very happy to have discovered Telemann's wonderful music for solo violin. Excluding piano, I can't even name that many pieces for solo instruments...

    Hi all, I have 3 pieces to identify, and I would appreciate any help on this. Please note that all of them are taken from various tracks, where they were used as samples. They could be altered or reversed, contain some extra bits / noises, and may differ from the originals. It was suggested...
  20. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi everyone, I have been listening to various classical pieces for the past 6 months. I have no musical background nor basic musical knowledge, but I love classical music—indeed, these days, the only music I listen to. Please give me suggestions to explore more. I'd like to appreciate the...
