Who are some of your favs?
I don't know many actual classical composers or anything other than the big 3 or so.
I mostly listen to movie scores with classical style, if that makes sense.
Igor Stravinsky and Tchicovski fucking win.Beethoven's music sounds way too happy for me,am I the only one?
Indeed. I also loves the movie scores.
I disagree with this, but I know what you're talkin about.
I'm not a big fan of Mozart or Vivaldi for similar reasons.
vivaldi gets a nod simply for the four seasons... plus his canon in g
there is a really dope song that i used to love to play in orchestra... adagio in g minor by Albinoni...
i dislike both by Vivaldi.
and yes, that Albinoni shit is great.
I'm a fan, but I don't really know any composers.
I'm only just getting 'serious' about it if you will.
So dope thread.
You have any recommendations mac?
trying to find more of the style I like. I like a lot of Danny Elfman's work.
i'm a fan of the music in general but not well-versed
bach's "air" is my favorite piece
it provides a great soundtrack to being on hold or waiting for the elevator to reach it's destination
Oh, good taste.
I'm going to see what I can youtube in a sec for anyone wanting to explore.
some pretty typical stuff for anyone interested:
Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by JS Bach (not my favorite version, but it's the best I can find on my quick trip to youtube):
air by Bach:
o fortuna by Orff (nas fans should recognize):
Chopin Polonaise Op. 53 in A flat major (Chopin is a god btw):
Fantasia on Greensleeves - Vaughn Williams
RICHARD STRAUSS - ALSO SPRACH ZARATHUSTRA:
moonlight sonata - beethoven (imo the greatest composer of all time):
beethoven's fur elise:
Eroica by Beethoven:
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik by Mr. Magic Mozart:
Piano Concerto No.21 In C Major by Mozart:
ride of the valkyries by Wagner (Hitler's favorite composer):
flight of the bumblebee - rimsky korsakov
I've always had a passing interest in it, but it's a mixture of my gf and my disdain for the suffocating trends of popular music that really turned me on to it.
some stuff from uematsu, who imo is the greatest composer alive:
Adagio For Strings= Classic
AKA The theme from Platoon
Only vid i could find
