Bump.

This has been ignored for a long, long time, however I haven't posted any Penderecki in this version of the thread yet. I'll go for something more listenable than my last post concerning Penderecki, as he's quite diverse and this side of him should be shown.



Also diptiman, I'm sorry I let this thread drop down, however I really enjoyed the piece you posted, an intriguing genre to explore! Thumbs up

I don't listen to classical music that much, but I love this song. And here are two other songs by the same composer/artist. Sakamoto is a multi-talented genius...

I hadn't heard of this artist before, but thanks for posting Thimmy, a wonderfully relaxing and reflective piece.

Hi dostoevsky:

I love exploring new types of music and i will definitely have my eye on this side of the forum. I am not sure if these are something you will like but personally i love these two:

i sincerely feel you should listen to them (especially the first one). Let me know how you like it





wait did he just get banned? wat the hell? Crying or Very sad

I re-embedded the videos, I hope you don't mind, for youtube you need to click on the film strip to the right, not the flash button.

A friend actually introduced me to Ludovico Einaudi earlier this year, however I wasn't familiar with Primavera, thank you very much for posting this, wonderfully enjoyable piece. Instantly familiar but poignant.

I'm glad this thread interested you, here's to contributions in the future. Thumbs up

dostoevsky, a mod after my own heart :bow:

Amazing selections in this thread. Some I've heard but gladly listened to again (Firebird is a personal favourite) and some new ones I haven't heard yet.

I'll post some stuff here since classical music is something I adore. Don't worry dostoevsky you are not alone drinking

+1 for Sakamoto.

Forbidden colours is one of the most heart felt piano compositions I've ever had the pleasure of listening too. The oriental style he brought in that piece to a very western instrument is genius and amazingly fresh. It really isn't what I would call classical music though (it's more new age actually) but a great composition all the same and worth listening to.

Sheltering sky is classical music however and it is fantastic, same with Energy flow. Sakamoto dabbled in pretty much every musical genre out there from new wave to j-pop so when he wrote classical music it always sounded different to your typical piece as if his other influences bled into his classical work. He has a distinct style to the point where those who are familiar with his music can instantly recognise a Sakamoto piece.

Some teasers to what will be the most epic thread in the forums :bow:

Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich:

The Begining:


Section II:



Not your typical pieces. An attempt at minimalist classical music that creates an almost hypnotic melody. Worth a listen for sure. Steve Reich hits this out of the ball park IMO. Nothing out there is quite like this.

Psalmus Hungaricus by Kodály Zoltán





The people of Hungary should be proud of this master piece. Rich, powerful, a true epic and my god that climax at the end :bow:

And last but not least my man Igor :bow:

Symphony of Psalms isn't even one of his best known compositions but it is without a doubt one of his best. (There are quite a few movements so check them out in the related videos on youtube, definitely worth it)



:bow:

All the reps to you for Primavera. The first time i heard that it felt like I had already listened to it. It almost felt like I had heard it in a dream once or something.

Fantastic, words fall short.

Stumbled on this piano piece while watching a football related video. Instantly fell in love with it.



Smile by Matthias Frey

Never heard of the guy but I'm a fan after hearing that. Lovely piece and while it is not the most technically amazing piano piece you can find but a lot of love went into it and it shows.

You can really sense a feeling of sincere joy behind the piece which is pleasing to listen to, even if it's not a technical masterpiece by any means. Some pieces you need to be in the right mood to appreciate, others seem appropriate no matter the setting and they stay with you.

That's the beauty of chamber music, the sensitivity and perspective it offers that belies expectations.

I tried to find the cello transcription I heard performed by Rostropovich, however I can't find a track that I can embed, however it is an interesting comparison to make of this timeless piece by Schubert. I'm personally incredibly partial to the cello, however its original form is still stunning.

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau has sadly passed away, one of the finest artists of the past century and it truly is a huge loss to the musical world. I'd like to just leave a few examples of his performances, for there could be no finer manner in which to say goodbye and thank you than to appreciate his sublime art. A truly majestic voice and one that shall be sorely missed.

Love this piece, the melodic and harmonic climaxes are top top notch.

Can't help but sway my head back and forth when listening to it. If I'm not mistaken Fauré originally had this as a piano piece but I'm glad the orchestral version became more famous. The ebbs and flows of it are majestic.

The Barber of Seville is a classic. Bugs Bunny eco smile

Beethoven once said that so long as Italian Opera exists so will the Barber of Seville. Another tid bit is that Rossini himself said he wrote the entire Opera in 12 days!

Rachmaninoff - Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43 "Variation 18" (Pennario)



A fantastic example of an inverted melody. Rachmaninoff bases it on Paganini's theme but in stead of A minor it's in D Flat essentially meaning it's "upside down".

Many variations of Rhapsody exist but the 18th variation is by far the most famous one.
