Have u heard any classical music or any other genres played in modern or 'unlikely' instrumentation?
I've seen performance of Mozart's vocal work accompanied by jazz trumpet. And even more unusual... Baroque vocal works with sort of an African/Negro vocal backup :blink: ...
And not forgetting Yo Yo's Silk Road Ensemble... Which I'm still having reservations even till today... :mellow:
And tubular bells and angklong with Bach. :huh:
Whether these modern instrumentations do sound good...that I'm not so sure. But I think classical instruments do make marvellous, amazing transformation when used for modern music..
I love jazz clarinet. Alot of people don't see Jazz and Clarinet as the best fit...they find it hard to imagine any other combination other than the saxaphone.
I'll really love to see Jazz and obow...I wonder how it'll be...Fascinating! I'm sure! :lol:

When i listened to Jazz, i can't listen to classical stuff after it, because it destroys the possibilty to do (You know what i mean?).
I know what u mean.. :p
It's like the classical music sounds 'broken' after that,
Do u think it's gotta do with the difference in pulsation and freedom of notes in jazz? So, it's like yr feel or rather co-ordinates( on a map)just 'shifted'....so if u listened to classical immediately after that, u'll feel strangely lost?
Sometimes I'll feel this this.
But I love to improvise. I've been trying to get a basic bossa nova rhythm these few days. It's really fun actually. :D
