I've heard people say Liszt is a 'piano composer', but his Orchestral works are great too.
[QUOTE=ThunderGod;31976792]I've heard people say Liszt is a 'piano composer', but his Orchestral works are great too.[/QUOTE] Indeed, he did some wonderful choral works too. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wszi8KPuiOE[/media]
I just passed this on VINYL LP for £1.49 at a charity shop...

I bought a classic fm Beethoven collection today fully aware of how consistently bad classic fm's choice of performances are. I was dissapoint :(
Baroque is still my favourite era thanks to JS Bach
So I purchased Ashkenazy's Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances. YES! [img]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51yVK5Mp23L._SL500_AA300_.jpg[/img] Good stuff, and I got Isle of the Dead as well. :smile:
I don't even care I'm going to the charity shop I found and grabbing some LPs of classical music. If they're a pound each then it's a steal really. Some on ebay fetch about £10+ depending on rarity.
Anyone here listen to Henry Purcell? Next to Bach he's probably my favorite Baroque composer. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdWu0k5cMtE&feature=related[/media] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-1tK7pQdX0[/media]
I like Purcell
all of you should get this: [img]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/318PX98V0ZL._SL500_AA300_.jpg[/img] I need more things like it, same with Max Richter. Modern Classical at its best. [editline]21st October 2011[/editline] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYHQD0-CqNE[/media]
Need more modern classical artists, any others? [editline]13th November 2011[/editline] updated the OP a bit too.
[QUOTE=AK'z;33261188]Need more modern classical artists, any others?[/QUOTE] Like, 20th Century? These guys aren't the most obscure so I dunno if you've already got stuff by them, but eh there's probably stuff here you haven't checked out. Steve Reich (Music for 18 Musicians; Different Trains/Electric Counterpoint), John Adams (Harmonium; The Death of Klinghoffer), Stravinsky (Rite of Spring; Firebird), Bartok(Six String Quartets; Concerto for Orchestra;Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celestta), Phil Glass (Einstein of the Beach;Koyanisqastii) , Shostakovich (Symphony No. 5; 15), Schoenberg (Gurrelieder; Transfigured Night), Berg(Wozzeck; Chamber Concerto)
You, the man. Anything youtubely you can provide?
oh look it up yerself. i'll give you this one though because i realy like this one. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2diuSD2pLic[/media]
[QUOTE=pie_is_good;33261483]oh look it up yerself. [/QUOTE] Yeah, but I don't like spending more time looking than listening. :) [QUOTE=pie_is_good;33261483] i'll give you this one though because i realy like this one. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2diuSD2pLic[/media][/QUOTE] OI, FIDELITY MAAAAAAAN!! :pwn: No camera phone classical music here :(
that's the way classical music is meant to be heard!
okay, this is pretty much what I'm after. thank you. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VpJKsF4JJ8U[/media] :dance:
If you like that one check out his [I]Harmonielehre[/I].
John Cage, Ligeti, Penderecki, Schoenberg, Webern, Berg, Xenakis, Ornstein, Lyatoshynsky, Antheil, Stockhausen, Bartok, Scriabin(later pieces), Morton Feldman, Schnittke, Enno Poppe(Not a very well known figure, but he's one of my favorites!), John Adams. That should do you for moderns, if you want recommendations please do specify which composer, currently I can't be assed to recommend pieces from all of them.
[QUOTE=The Maestro;33267510]John Cage[/QUOTE] Okay, I've listened to him before but not in the sense that I'd like. Know anywhere to start with that dude?
It depends. John Cage has a very eclectic compositional style. Personally, I'm a fan of his earlier style(Daughters of the Lonesome Isle, Our Spring Will Come, Bacchanale, Mysterious Adventure), but his later more experimental style is good too(Tape Music, Imaginary Landscape(s)).
[QUOTE=The Maestro;32875623]Anyone here listen to Henry Purcell? Next to Bach he's probably my favorite Baroque composer. [/QUOTE] I adore Purcell, he is such a wonderful composer.. British too :D If you like Purcell you will love Croft. Purcell taught Croft everything he knew.. so their music is very similar. I recommend Suite No.3 in C minor. What a fantastic piece for Harpsichord.
I have a good cello Bach album, but lacking in many others.
Are there any other interesting modern artists like Igorrr and World's End Girlfriend that mix classical music with other genres? [video=youtube;z_xrSIZSDxE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_xrSIZSDxE[/video] [video=youtube;JdWMH1XGX30]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdWMH1XGX30[/video]
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYjxHZPIDbE[/media] This is good. also Clogs [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R0eIi6pqSo[/media] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukHmdFRaEp0[/media]
Some Bach for you gents. Performed by my favorite Bach interpreter, Karl Richter! [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK6-x9sdEYo[/media]
So many Richters in classical music... [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SduYfdbmiI8[/media] makes sense.
Can someone recommend me some good contemporary classical? Preferably stuff that I can download with a lot of seeders?
