  1. Classical Music Discussion
    Hi all, this thread is dedicated to list some of the masterpieces or the very well known compositions that were written by composers at a very young age. I suggest the max age is to be 25. Here is what I can remember at this time: 1 - Grieg's Piano Concerto, age 24. 2 - Schoenberg's Verklärte...
  2. Musicians
    So, this is for you to post young pianists the world over who you believe to be up and coming, even if not in the biggest way possible, just whose work you admire and eagerly await to see what more they will do. Two young hot shots I have my eye on are Lucas Debargue and Daniil Trifonov. It's...

    Hello, all, My name is Bill - I'm a 23 year-old graduate student from Monmouth County, New Jersey and a long-time lover of classical music. Being young in this day and age means that it's often quite difficult to find peers who enjoy the music that we here on this forum do. Classical music...
  4. Classical Music Discussion Polls

  7. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    At what age are composers most creative? This stems from some articles that I have read recently about creativity in different fields. One article states: Researchers, psychologists, art historians have studied, debated and pondered the correlation between age and artistic creativity...

    The Young Dead If you could lift one (or a couple) of composers who died young (say before 50) out of the grave to continue their illustrious careers, who would be your first choices? I can think of five: Mozart (35), Schubert (31), Schumann (36) , Mendelssohn (38), Bellini (34)....I'm sure...
  9. Opera
    I am asking because I am a young baritone (23) and have been out of practice for a few years, but I'd like to get back into classical singing, specifically learning opera roles (once I've taken 6-12 months to re-establish technique of course). naturally, my point is not that I want to rush into...

    If you're into supporting classical music, take a look at this! I need to get between what I earn at my job and what you can donate $1,100 in order to sing Suor Angelica in Rome. Opera is fabulous, and so are you. Please consider looking, especially if somebody helped you financially when you...

  17. Classical Music Discussion
    Just looking through this Wikipedia list, I've realized that most living composers that I am aware of are over 70 years old, with some from 40-70. Although I maybe haven't explored enough 21st century classical music, I find it kind of surprising that the only two composers under 40 that I...

  19. Classical Music Discussion Polls
    As I listening to earlier performances by Heabler (sp?), Klien, and Brendel on this lovely box set, I was wondering whether young folks in their 20's and 30's don't appreciate the older legends like Alfred Cortot or Artur Schnabel in favor of the younger, "flashy" folks like Lang Lang or Yuja...
  20. Classical Music Discussion
    Based on the comment: I decided that it would be a good idea to address the non-gender sex and it as a theme in classical music. To start off this springboard, if I recall correctly, Lizst's piano playing in live concerts "ravished" many young ladies back in the day. And there are the...
