Who is your favorite classical composer and why is it CPE Bach?
Because CPE has a more varied style. His music was the perfect transition from the baroque to the classical era and his music has a lot of complex and varied emotions. Beethoven did too, but he's honestly overrated (I still like him though, especially his lesser known symphonies). Mozart isn't my jam either.
There are three different eras.
Baroque (characterized by its business and counterpoint):
Classical (less busy and ornamented):
Romantic (more expressive):
Post-romantic (just for fun):
If it's not 5 or 9 (or 7), it's lesser known comparatively. But I also meant to say "piano sonatas or symphonies" so you got me there.
eroica is probably his best m8. it's when he finally establishes his work in the romantic style (1 and 2 hinted at it, but were firmly classical). he wrote it right after learning that he was going to eventually go deaf. he pulled out all the stops and fucking went for it and never looked back, it sets a precedence for literally everything he did after.
In all honesty, Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kije, Beethoven's 9th symphony, Mozart's Die Zauberflote, Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Sullivan's Mikado are all good places to start. They are shorter and present more varied melody types that are present in the /classical/ canon.
I... agree with you? Why are you telling me to get learnt?
You know what's funny? At the time of the late baroque era, JS Bach was actually not as well regarded as CPE. People loved CPE much more but now JS is more well known and liked because people today think he is a better representation of the baroque era. We put more emphasis on him in our history books and that's why he's held in a higher regard.
For Mozart's Die Zauberflote I like the 2001 Colin Davis version. I also like the Swedish film version by Ingmar Bergman. For Vivaldi's Four Seasons I like the Concerto Italiano version. Clips of all are on YouTube.
the usual shit you classicalfags listen to
Bach Beethoven Chopin Mozart Shoenberg Gorecki Stravinsky Vivaldi Bartok Satie + various modern stuff mostly minimalism
I'd rather listen to Kanye desu at least he puts some sort of emotion into his music
Classicalfuckers just mostly wank or repeat same shit through the whole "composition"
I like his daddy more. Daddy's more pure Baroque, but his songwriting chops are second to none. Not even a muh complexity thing just because Johann uses the complexity so well, adding tons of nuance to the music.
>the CPE Bach meme is still being memed
Where is SDF when you need him?
Mine is Franz Liszt, his music makes my soul cry
ignore the plebs, Rachmaninoff is one of the best
this version is OK, but Shelley's is the best I've ever heard - I had it on a CD, I can't find it on youtube anywhere
