  1. Orchestral Music
    Just wanted to share that I just discovered a symphonic music streaming platform that is super new called Symphony. They seem to have partnerships with some of the leading symphony orchestras and some nice documentaries. I think it's worth checking out - I'm on their free trial and have been...

    Hi, I'd like to know where can I find similar music to this one: Video game version: Symphonic Suite version: I've found music like "Epic orchestra" on YouTube but that's what I'm looking for. Another question: Is it the drum at the begining a "drum bass"? Thanks in advance
  5. Today's Composers
    I had NO musical training whatsoever. I just started composing for solo instruments in 2008, purely based on passion for music. Some of my compositions are out on the web, however it is hard to get feedback. I composed this third part for this 3rd symphony in November 2016 (it's my opus 27, so...
  6. Today's Composers
    Something I composed probably around 2008 but it's undated or hard to find in my records right now.

    The other day I was listening to Varèse's "Arcana" and was quite struck by some of the musical quotations. The similarities between the short riff found on page 13 of the score and "The Infernal Dance" from Stravinsky's "The Firebird" was not all that surprising as Stravinskian quotations in...
  8. Classical Music Discussion
    Hello everyone, I've been listening to classical music for a couple of years now and have discovered that I really love romantic orchestral works by the likes of Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky. There are lots of other orchestral works I love as well, but the huge depth of emotion i feel from these...
  9. Orchestral Music
    His symphonies seem very -- how should I put it? -- empty... maybe dull would be better. No matter. I just know that it's been a while since I've listened to any of his symphonies (or masses, or anything) but my recollection of his music is just a blur of boredom. Passages like, "Bruckner...
  10. Ballet
    The Seasons shall be revived as a ballet and not just as a symphonic work! I know it! There is so much potential of choreography, plot, and visuals:
  11. Orchestral Music
    Rachmaninov's "Symphonic Dances" is one of my favourite orchestral works: the beautiful themes, exciting orchestral colour, and that certain something that, for me, is completely missing in his very popular 2nd symphony. However there are recordings where, at the very end (last note), the...
  12. Classical Music Discussion
    I was wondering which symphonic cycles should I listen to first or which works should I prioritize first. I dreaded at the prospects of listening to Nielsen after his Fourth Symphony which I found far too vague, "silent" and mindbogglingly complex. A bunch of notes being played. Still after a...
  13. Non-Classical Music
    imo, symphonic metal is the only electric guitar-heavy musical genre which successfully manages to sound elegant and melodious (even soothing at times, which is extremely unusual among metal pieces in general). some of my favorites are: PS: no, not all symphonic metal bands have female...
  14. Orchestral Music
    Creating this thread to discuss works of a symphonic nature which are very rarely known. Examples include: 1. Anton Rubinstein's Second Symphony 2. Glazunov's Sixth Symphony 3. Schnittke's First Symphony 4. Dohynani's Second Symphony 5. Raff's Eleventh Symphony 6. Penderecki's Seventh Symphony...
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi everyone, a question!: When you hear "Persian Symphonic Music" or "Iranian Symphonic music" what kind of musics come to your mind? I will be grateful if you write me. Thanks.
