Classical Music You Adore
« on: September 25, 2008, 12:40:29 PM »

come on. there has to be someone out there who has some knowledge.

Please include any music outside of rock n' roll as well!
I love almost anything Russian. Rhapsodies. forgive if i misspell, but other than the obvious Beethoven and Mozart, there is also Rimsky-Korsokav, Brahms, Stravinsky...etc.



Anyone?


(and if you aren't able to come up with odd recommendations that the average listener doesn't know...well, shit)

I really like Pachelbel's Canon in D.
And Rob Paravonian's "Pachelbel rant".  ;D

Also some Tschaikowski and Chopin. Mostly piano stuff. I love George Winston's "December" album...

Bolero---Ravel

Mussorgsky---Night on the BARE Mountain (correct)

Dvorak--Largo ("New World" symphony) Plus a shitload of Slavonic Dances.

Gershwin?--Rhapsody in Blue?

George Enescu--Romanian Rhapsody (both Op. No. 1 and 2?)

such an in depth apology, there.

anywho, everybody fucking listens to Mars.  *rolls eyes*  i swear, it's almost as overplayed as Bartok's Romanian Dances (which can now be found in football video games).  you can even find Mars sampled in Blame Canada, from South Park the Movie's soundtrack.

frankly, i really love Holst's Jupiter, Saturn (especially), and Mercury.

Beethoven's Symphony number 9, second movement, and Beethoven's piano sonata no 17, first movement.  Everyone loves the third movement of the Tempest, but the first kicks more ass than it gets credit for.  Hopefully that ups my classical music indie cred.

i've heard snippets from brahm's hungarian dances. i will look some up.
oh, uhm, yeah! i bet you didn't know that about me.

pavane - fauré is cute also. and to a wild rose - macdowell.



brahms' hungarian dances are loverrly, as is fauré's pavane.  :)

both HUGELY overused, but some of my favourites at the moment include beethoven's 'moonlight' sonata (movements 1 & 3 in particular, i'm trying to learn mvt. three at the moment & slightly lacking in hand-eye coordination, or brain power...)
& czardas by vittorio monti has got to be an all time favourite.
it has been arranged & re-arranged more times than i'd care to count but my personal preference is for flute & piano arr. by kenneth smith (i THINK on the name!).

if you like the wonder that is eastern european folk music may i recommend.....

Bizet, Puccini, Poulenc, Jacob, Hummel, Copeland, Mozart, Rossini, Schubert, Strav, SOME Tchaik, Howard Shore, (secretly) Ravel... and many others that I can't think of right now, I think.

2. something can help me identifying this song?:  http://www.thehydetube.com/Mr.ARMOS-89.html

Shostakovich string quartet No. 8, second movement i think.

While we're talking chamber, Ravel String Quartet and Barber's Summer Music for wind quintet.

I love Grieg's "Peer Gynt Suite"
The parts I've heard anyway: Morning, Anitra's Dance and Hall of the Mountain King.

I like other classical music, I am not sure of a favourite, though.

I have such mixed feelings towards Peer Gynt. I've heard it butchered by high school bands and orchestras so many times... but when played properly it's still rad. Hmm.

Thankfully, I've never heard it butchered. I've heard the Apocalyptica version, and I love cellos but I prefer orchestral versions of it.

I haven't really listened to orchestral/symphonic music much lately, with the exception of the soundtracks to The Lives of Others and Final Fantasy XII.

...has anyone mentioned Gustav Holst? 'Jupiter' is quite possibly my favourite piece of classical music, although that's a hard call to make with Elgar's Nimrod, Jenkins' Adiemus, Copland's Rodeo, and almost everything written by Beethoven or Tschaikovsky.

I should get my classical CDs out again :)

Me too. I loved VII and VIII the most. The soundtrack to XII wasn't done by Nobou, though, which makes it much more symphonic than the melodic music of the great Nobou. I had the luxury of attending a concert in Stockholm where they played lots of Final Fantasy music and I swear I must have spent half the time crying, it was so beautiful. Plus, there are those memories of 15-year old me singing along to 'Eyes on Me' and 'Melodies of Life'...

If I ever learn an instrument, I want to learn some of the Final Fantasy pieces. Including Kuja's Theme. Which I know off by heart, sadly. (Kuja! He's pretty, even if pyscho :))

frankly, i really love Holst's Jupiter, Saturn (especially), and Mercury.


Also, Copland's Rodeo is awesome, and nobody ever mentions it.  It's sad, because it's great American-style music.

I read from pages three onward but not the first page. Sorry, I was in a hurry. I'll try not to do that again in future.

I don't actually like 'Mars' unless it is either live or loud, preferably both. And I fell in love with Rodeo when they played it on Classic FM back when I listened to radio regularly. 'Hoedown' instantly caught my attention.

I loved VII and IX the most, although VIII was my first FF. I couldnt believe that they changed the composer AND the battle system all in one game, made me feel a bit strange about twelve. It was an alright game, but didnt seem like a Final Fantasy game to me.
Kuja is AWESOME. I guess there are more psycho types out there ^^
Which ones have you played?

Haha, I feel a little guilty now. I was working in Northern Germany at the time, saw the chance, and on impulse booked a flight to Stockholm (well, Skavsta, which meant a long coach ride) and stayed there on a little red boat moored by the side of Soedermalm, which is one of the greatest places in the world. Nobou himself was in attendance for the concert (we treated him like a god), but most of the audience were Swedish, including a cute guy dressed up as Reno of the Turks who I chatted with beforehand.

To be honest, although I've never played them properly, XII felt like a MMORPG, just without the rest of the world. I spent most of my time levelling, finding rare items, and exploring: the plot didn't really hang over things like it did with the others, although who could not love those characters (especially Balthier!).

Haha, yes, I tend to fall for the crazy ones. Typical. Not so much Sephiroth, though, oddly. Kuja going crazy on Terra was one of my favourite moments in that game.

I've played IV, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X and XII, which I suppose makes me quite the fangirl. The ones in the middle of that list were my favourites.

(I want them to make a film of VII! And, to keep on topic, to have most of the soundtrack fully orchestrastrated. I have a copy of the Main Theme done on full orchestra, and it makes me melt)

I would probably break down in fangirl tears if I was in the same building as Nobuo Uematsu. Well, not literally, but it sounds like you had an amazing time, anyway ^^

XII didnt really seem to have much of a plot, I agree. I spent most of my time, levelling, item finding and mark hunting also. Lack of plot was one of the reasons XII kinda sucked. Yeah, I didnt love the characters all that much :P Balthier was my favourite too though.

I've played IV, V, VII, VIII, IX, X, X-2 and XII.

Kuja was win. Sephiroth was cool, but Kuja was significantly more lovable.

They sort of did make a film of VII, if you count Advent Children. Seen it?

Also, to keep on topic; I love the MIDI versions of all the music but they vary a bit and never sound as good in any version you find of the music as they do in the game. Orchestrated versions would definitely be awesome too though, but maybe just as soundtracks, as opposed to game audio. Well, maybe. I don't know  :-\

I think I might have to be fair...especially when he came on stage at the end, which wasn't too far from me.

Awww, Kuja...I wish he'd got a bit more screen-time.

I did, and really liked it, but it's not the same...I want to see the old style Midgar, lurking in the darkness with the mako reactors glowing. I want to hear Sephiroth's theme loudly as Nibelheim burns. It would have to be a trilogy, of course, done epically...

Some MIDIs sound dead-on, because of the technology the Playstation used. I have the soundtrack CD anyhow with the originals which sound exactly like in the game. They did release an orchestrated version for VIII which I love, but strangely not for VII. All games have their piano soundtracks, though.

Toccata & Fugue is fantastic (I'm learning it on piano but a] it's a substandard transcription and b] I suck)
Otherwise, Dvorak's Slavonic Dances, just for their zaniness.
Greig's Peer Gynt is ok, but it has been overdone a lot I suppose.
Handel's Water Music is great, as is his Music for Royal Fireworks. Very pompous / joyous.
As for Tchaikovsky — Piano Concerto 1 Bb Minor (Allegro Non Troppo) is just amazing.
So is his other stuff, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, etc. One of my favourites is his Introduction to Eugene Onegin just cos it's kind of creepy and mysterious. And you can't forget Saint-Saens and the Danse Macabre

But by far my favourites would have to be Prokofiev's Montagues and Capulets and Moussorgsky's  Night on Bald/Bare Mountain
Powerful, dramatic and scary classical music is the best kind of classical music! =)

I think I have a "classical-emo" taste in music?  ;D

I love playing Moonlight Sonata.

And I love quite a few of Chopin's Preludes (which I can play as well).

If I ever improve enough to play a nocturne from Chopin...ah that would be awesome.

But I really dig Chopin, I love the structures of his pieces.

Another song which I would classify as a classical piece is the Piano Duet from Corpse Bride. I can't play it as fast as they can but I'm almost there...I love that song.
