Viola de Gamba my Chittarone edition
Starting off with some good ol' Jordi
>try not to kill yourself edition
Posting some lute/theorbo works
>mfw listening to schubert's string quintet for the first time
This has to be the most profound musical utterance I've ever heard.
I know many people don't like these charts and I didn't make them but for what it's worth here is a chart with some decent selections. It may not be perfect but it's a good starting point.
I see what you did there
>a woman author
>"I believe in Bach, the Father, Beethoven, the Son, and Brahms, the Holy Ghost of music."
I would have swapped the Takahashi Xenakis for the Arditti/Helffer chamber works set. I prefer Helffer's work on Evryali and Mists (Xenakis's most important piano works, really), and the inclusion of Tetras, Tetora, Akea, and Ikhoor really give it the edge.
Or Persepolis like the original. But then again, that's on that other chart so whatev's friend.
Also, /classical/ generally backs Queyras or Casals (historical) on the cello suites. But either way I personally (and so does Poly, shit as his taste might be) believe the violin sonatas/partitas are more significant (Grumiaux, one of the few interpretations we agree on).
Glenn Ghoul is extremely controversial on /classical/ but I'd back your inclusion just to cause meme frenzies.
Been working on the first movement of the G minor quintet with some peers. (A shame, because I really like the second movement). Only discovered it because we were too cheap to play anything not on IMSLP and we didn't have an A clarinet to play the Nielsen. Was skeptical at first, but I've warmed up to it. Sobeck's an alright guy; he's Czech, so obviously he is therefore underrated. He's no Brahms, but these quintets do deserve more exposure. I just wish they'd included his 4th quintet in the ~20 minutes left open.
>Arditti/Helffer chamber works set
thanks this is very good.
yeah, casals is good too. I like rostropovich for the complete set, maisky is good too.
i like gidon kremer, personally
I personally love him but he does have some bizarre interpretations.
>Hagen quartet or Pavel Haas quartet
both of those are good too, quatuor diotima is very good though
Second hand store was pretty good to me last time I hit it...what do you think ?
Felt like christmas. When I go to that place I usually come back with one or two decent lps. I'm just disappointed bruckner 5 and 8 are incomplete (5 only finale movement, 1 of 2 lp's)...Jochum isn't really my cup of tea but still...
Does anyone have this? If so, could do me the biggest favor and share it here? Please family
Just finished listening to it. Was my first time with these symphonies. I enjoyed them a lot, it's quite amazing they where written when he was only 18 and 19 years old. Unfortunately the sound was quite "muddy"...I have no big experience with the pre stereo dgg records (this one is from 57) but I hope it just needs some deep cleaning.
You mean how much I paid for it ? 80 swiss francs for everything (1CHF = $1). They usually charge 3 for a single lp so I had 34 francs discount...still not cheap but that's alright. I'm pretty happy with what I found.
I'm addicted to Furtwängler's 2nd movement of Beethoven's 9th too. I think it may be one of my favorite pieces of music ever.
Damn, why is Furtwängler so superior to virtually anyone at conducting this?
might just not be mastered that well on the LP
the CD i have sounds fine, but then again i'm pretty used to listening to old historical recordings
Capet (for 14/15)
Well Deutsche Grammophon lp's don't usually sound great. It is said that the early stereo ones (with the tulips circle like in the pic above) sound better but from my experience I can't tell that this is true. But you probably don't care so whatever :^)
He's only hardly mentioned because there are so many good artists from the period.
It's it trying to hear about anyone besides Mozart from the same period it just isn't going to happen
Less of a slavshit
I bought his 2nd and 5th symphony performed by Karajan and the philharmonia orchestra few days ago. Already listened to number two three times. It's a magnificent piece.
By the late 1600's and early 1700's, high Baroque music had reached a point where contrapuntal techniques are essential in composing. That's why when you listen to Vivaldi or Pachelbel, you often hear layers of music moving in response to each other. Classical music arose due to musicians focusing more on simpler theme rather than complex harmonic structures.
Hmm, let's see.
>Beethoven could play any of Bach's pieces by age 12
>Beethoven struggled to play some of his later works (like piano sonata 29, which is still considered one of the hardest pieces ever to play)
I'll let you be the judge which is more complex.
>that's really good, darling
>see, im going to hang it on the fridge, so everyone can see your amazing piece of art
What do you think about Andre Rieu lads? Personally I quite like him, I understand why the purists get annoyed that he caters to the masses, but he makes classical music fun and that's an important thing nowadays.
I gotchu pham
Gould is great, a genius artist. But it is ridiculous that anyone would recommend his unusual, willful recordings as the best of a composer, especially to a newcommer to classical. When Gould played Bach Gould won, not Bach.
I always thought Karajan's Sibelius with the BPO were some of the shittiest classical recordings and never could understand why they were praised, this certainly sounds better than that, didn't know he had an earlier set.
most of his philharmonia studio recordings usually sound better than his BPO ones
in large part--i think--due to the walter legge working on a lot of them. and of course it was before Karajan's fuckhuge ego and the bad habits that settled in from the 70s onwards really began to become a nuisance
What does /classical/ think of Čiurlionis?
Does anyone have a really good recording of Tartini's violin sonata in g minor? The devil's trill one.
Also, before you tell me it's shit or something, fuck off. I really like this sonata and you're wasting your time if you try to "change" my opinion.
Scriabin was a qt
>his playing of the fourth sonata
>you will never hear Mysterium in it's entirety
>you will never know the enigma of Scriabin's mind
>you will never get a piano concerto in his late style
>you will never get anymore orchestral Poemes
What the fuck have I done to deserve this
It could be with some harmony.
the shitty piano sound and lack of volume automation certainly doesn't help. You need to vary the volume of your repeated notes, so they dont sound too mechanical. Use rubato a lot when you're programming piano, it helps it sound more natural. drag notes slightly off the beat, have notes staggering and dragging. A beautiful piece is only beautiful when played beautifully by an accomplished player or ensemble.
>irrefutable evidence that all western music education is, was, and always will be TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT-TONIC-DOMINANT and everyone who is processed by it turns into a robot who can only blurt BUT WHERE IS HOME when confronted by a slightly atypical piece
Unless of course it was made by a GENIUS composer.
Does anyone know where to find any good online music lecture recordings?
i've done 2 years of study in theory/history but wanna keep refreshed and learn more.
want to listen to this stuff while at the gym, driving etc.
anyone know anything?
