I noticed that there's no classical music thread. So, how many of you kids/adults here listen to classical music? If you do, why and what are some of your favorites? If you do not, why don't you?

It doesn't necessarily have to be generic stuff composed by Beethoven, Bach, or Brahms or anything like that. Just general orchestral or symphonic stuff. Are you in your high school band? Playing instruments? Do you prefer to play classical music or listen to it?

Discuss.

I like a lot of different styles of classical music. I love the Brandenberg Conterti from Bach. #5 (I believe) has a great harpsicord solo that's truly for a virtuoso.

I've been trying to learn to play Franz Schubert's Earlkonig adaptation. I love the poem and the piece is adapted for music quite well. If you haven't heard it, you should. Quite a sad poem, however.

I've recently gotten into some more modern stuff like Schoenberg. Not much yet, but I like the 12 tone theory stuff.

Oh well, some thoughts from me.

Haha, Prinz and his Bach. biggrin.gif Harpsichords have such a unique sound. Though it is used nowadays (but rarely), it sounds best in the baroque genre.

arche, what sort of arrangement of Schubert's "Erlkönig" are you playing? Is it difficult?

It's the original piano & voice, I think... I can't touch the 4 hands version as I don't have 4 hands o_O.

Is it hard? Not for someone who's good, which I am not sad.gif. I've left piano alone for a long time, so this is a way to get back into it. The real tricky thing about the piece is the triplet octaves in the treble cleft. It's also incredibly fast meter, schnell (metronome of 152!). Well, it makes sense since it's supposed to imitate a galloping horse smile.gif.

I've still got to work on my technique with octaves so I don't move my whole forearm. It's all about that supple wrist, but after a page, that wrist gets tired sad.gif. I guess I shoud go to the gym to work out some more.

Baroque music is really great. Where the romantic period often had music emulate natural sounds (smetna's(sp?) die moldau), Baroque is more programatic, which I enjoy a lot.

The only classical music i listen to is Moonlight Sonata and Pavirotti's version of Ava Maria. Probably spelled the names wrong, but I tried!

Anyone here ever played the Hanon exercises? I find that they get so repetitive after a while . . . sad.gif

Yep....Hanan's good for people who need technique help. I can rip through the first two sections pretty quickly, so although it's repetative, it doesn't bother me. If I don't play them for a long time, I really can't do anything on the piano, so I need to use them as warm up every day if I want to play anything well. My piano teacher would play through it at least once a day also. I was amazed to hear him one day when I was at his house practicing through them. It really helped me realize that you do need to have foundation in basics.

To be honest, I know no names but I do listen to classical music when I can. My father has hundreds of CD's and quite a few are from classical composers.

Yet more than anything I listen to the Celtic music, which could be classed as some form of clasical (I think). Some of the melodies have been around for many, many years and usually tell a story.

I like that aspect of classical music. You can create images in your head, much like what Fantasia tried to do (I don't know if anybody likes Fantasia but I do). To just be able to lie back and let your mind tell its own tale is so relaxing.
