listening to this thing either way http://www.universaledition.com/Pierre-Boulez/composers-and-works/composer/88/work/2468
thought i'd heard most boulez works but this one doesn't ring a bell
tfw you might get to study composition with a good composer
Will we ever see piano work as good as Rachmaninoff's again?
You're going to write extremely esoteric atonal music that will only be listened to by the the "enlightened"
Those people are responsible for the death of western art music in exactly the same way bebop is responsible for the death of jazz.
film and television music usually consists of shitty rip-offs of actual classical music from the 20th century
see: the soundtrack to lost
or for a more concrete example, see 2001 a space odyssey where kubrick literally didn't use somebody's score because it was just a shittier version of the actual classical music he used instead
I don't mind him I guess, but my point still stands. Normies will absolutely hate him, which makes it esoteric.
>shitty rip-offs of actual classical music from the 20th century
This can be disproved by example. I point to almost the entire OST of Battlestar Galactica
If this is ripping something off its doing a damn good job. Not film's fault that actual classical music shat the bed in the second half of the century.
Reminder that Beethoven's Mass in C is underrated and better than the Memessa Solemnis
>introduction to composition
>you have to bring your compositions
If you're already composing why do you need to take an intro course?
It's like those entry-level dishwasher fastfood jobs that require 3 years of experience.
stop it anon
>tfw just listen to Boulez's interpretation of his Oboe Concerto
>Especially the second movement
>tfw the most famous non-german composers are the most german-like
Kodaly and Bartok and almost unknown, barring Bartok's propensity for memeing himself, while Liszt is famous for making literally making glorified etudes.
...Just like German composers.
Sorry if this is too pleb but I'm just going to drop three recordings of some of my favorite GnS operas (The Mikado, The Gondoliers, and Trial by Jury) from the 1920s, featuring some of the best D'Oyly Carte performers like Leo Sheffield and Henry Lytton.
I also highly encourage that you buy these recordings too, because the transfers are the best I could ask for, all things considered, and the business (78s2cd) is rather small.
Wait shit I realized it wasn't Gondoliers I uploaded but rather the 1924 acoustic recording of Princess Ida, the only D'Oyly Carte recording of the opera to have the song "Come, Mighty Must" sung by Bertha Lewis
I'd consider Pinafore to be the most pleb (damn good, but still pleb) of the operas because it has a very early musical comedy style. Either way, recordings of Pinafore are easier to come by than Princess Ida (which has some of the most delightful music Sullivan ever composed in it)
Right here in fact is a 1929 recording of Pinafore featuring Sir Henry Lytton as Sir Joseph Porter in it.
That's an interesting way to look at the conflict, since I always felt that Yeoman was rather unique in how serious it was. Most people would say it was a Gilbert or Sullivan conflict (take Ruddigore vs Gondoliers, for example)
