>inb4 how do I into classical?
trill shit. i listened to the whole sequentia box set a few weeks ago. great stuff to put on super early in the morning. i want to check out more interpretations of her stuff for sure
William Byrd is also enjoyable too; male voice oriented though
and Tallis of course
composed for the Queen's first birthday, damn
>male voice oriented though
Pretty much all the serious music up to the late 16th century tbqhwy senpai
Bartok's music sounds like the audio replication of a cat being raped
I made a shrine to Bach consisting of the lyrics of my favorite Bach Canata, Bach's seal and the Cross.
There isn't a day that goes by were I don't listen to his work. I have a special liking for this performance of the St John Passion.
I Imagine being on top of the hill as Jesus was being crucified while the prelude Herr, unser Herrscher is playing.
Thanks guys, I'm gonna check this all out. I already have Missa Solemnis to listen to this week too, and Messiah which I'm a little more skeptical about
hehe, seriously though I listen to 15 mins of his first Piano concerto and made a solemn oath never to put my self through such utter torture ever again
no substance at all it feels like he wrote what ever came to his mind that very instant down and did bother looking at it again
try the viola concerto or concerto for orchestra. or one of his thousands of other solo piano pieces (allegro barbaro, etudes, mikrokosmos). bartok's apparoach to composition is different from the past masters. dissonance is treated almost as equal as consonance (without going fully serialized).
I just don't find Bartoks style appealing at all. I like Bach's work because of how highly organized, highly polyphonic and high contrapuntal it's is especially his fugal works.
I think Bach's and Bartok's styles are quite at odds with Bartoks work being everything Bach's work isn't
bartok is highly fugal, organized and contrapuntal (see: opening movement of music for strings, percussion and celesta, final movement of concerto for orchestra, opening movement of quartet no. 4).
I haven't studied music, just read a lot about Bach tell me please what's the main difference technically between their two styles. I know their from different periods but technically in their methods of composing
There are classical music that seems to be "fragmented" and classical music that is more "constant" and "flows" better. Does this make any sense to you?
I really like the latter, the "continuous" classical music. A good example is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JQm5aSjX6g
Is there a term for this subgenre or am I looking too much into things?
Does anyobody know what composers does music like this?
try some neoclassical artists like Marcel Dettmann (pic related) and Anthony Child
you sort of just a little bit pleb in this post >>61752945
you are very much not pleb in this post >>61753544
you achieve total pleb in this post >>61753624
hope that clears things up
my suggestions is just keep trying more neoclassical until you find something you like
the fabric concert series in particular is typically about 70 minutes of flowing, uninterrupted compositions
bartok is highly dissonant and chromatic (a lot of the time). bach is mostly diatonic with a focus on perfect and major intervals with regular cadences. (consonant sounding). Technically, Bartok uses many techniques that Bach used (transposition, fugues, augmentation, diminution, retrograde, inversion) just with a different set of notes.
