  1. Classical Music Discussion
    Not to dumb down this refined space, but, often times, when I listen to Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" or Shostakovich's string quartets, I find myself head-banging. As a big metal guy, I'm more and more devastated by "heavy," dark classical music than the genres of hardcore, power-violence...

    Two great Stravinsky works from his early Russian period. Which is the greater work in your opinion? Feel free to comment on either, or both, the music or/and the ballet dance itself. On my part, I’ve only seen the (reconstructed) choreographies of both by Vaslav Nijinsky. I’m not a particularly...
  3. Identifying Classical Music
    Hello friends, I'm new here, but I thought this would be your expertise. I have been following a web series made to resemble a PlayStation 1 console game in graphics and music. There are several uses of the late 1990s chiptune/video game tones typical of the era to make upbeat loop tunes, but...

    And not because they're bad. Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, comes to mind...All of it. I can't hear it without having to get up and move. Somehow. Anyhow. It's on an almost emotionally primal level, like something bad is coming. John Murphy's In the House - In a Heartbeat, is another one...

    A bit of background. At the time this article was written, Copland had already written both his early, more difficult works, inspired by Stravinsky, and also his New Deal-era populist works (also inspired by Stravinsky, just more diatonic). A few years later the critic Henry Pleasants was to...
  9. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Who do you pick, my friends? Stravinsky? Schoenberg? Sergi Prokofiev?
  10. Classical Music Discussion
    Of course I have no idea if it's reputable, but there's a quote circling the internet that Stravinsky said of Messiaen: “All you need to write like him is a large bottle of ink.” Did he like modernists at all? I just find it a bit odd since Messiaen was of course influenced by Stravinsky's...

  13. The Movie Corner: Music for Cinema and TV
    I'd like some help from members with more knowledge of "classical" music than I have. I am a huge admirer of English film and television composer Christopher Gunning and his music for the long-running BBC series Agatha Christie's Poirot. Now, whenever I hear soundtracks from films or TV shows...

  16. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    Time for a debate here... how "Russian sounding" does Stravinsky sound to you, for those in the know?
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    IMHO Stravinsky was the trail blazer of incorporating true folklore into classical music. One of the most recognised Polish composers Karol Szymanowski decided to follow his path and took on a project of presenting Polish Highlanders' (Gorale) folklore in the form of ballet-pantomime. The...
  18. Ballet
    There is a similar poll, except it's about the Nutcracker, and I love the idea, so I'm expanding it to other ballets. Please post, tell why you chose what piece you chose, and be civil :)!
  19. Ballet
    What are your top three 20th century ballets? Besides the Stravinsky and Prokofiev’s ballets, since they would probably win hands down. I listed them in order of their premier dates and the composer. Since there were only 15 options, I know I left out a few including Jewels & Kraanerg , among...
  20. Classical Music Discussion
    I'm thinking Brandenberg Concertos (some movements) and some Stravinsky. Anyone have any other suggestions?
