Just been chilling out to Beethoven's 6th Symphony. One of the best pieces of music to listen to when winding down at the end of another long day. And, after enjoying a similar thread on the old board was wondering what other board members tastes in classical were. For me it greatly depends on my mood, but the aformentioned Symphony No 6, along with Holst's Planets Suite, Dvorak's Symphony No 9 (New World Symphony), and that old favourite Pachelbel's Canon, seem to be getting the most airtime around these parts at the moment

So how about everyone else?.

I love Stravinsky--damn near all Stravinsky. Most Mozart, too. After those two, I pick and choose.

I dislike the word classical, mostly because I was beaten down in college not to refer to [the music everyone calls classical] as classical, which is a period, not a genre. But I, like those professors, have no good substitute, making this paragraph a waste.

I've seen it referred to as "high art music." It sounds a little snooty, but takes away the confusion.

I think that's worse. Not all of it is high art, for one thing--plenty of it is shit. And you're right that it is a snooty name: such a name just separates it more from the general population.

I've also heard it called art music and serious music. I'm not a fan of those names, either.

I usually use the term "western classical" as it seems the "classical" word is here to stay.

That said...besides my love for Mahler, Mozart and Ives...I also really dig Alban Berg. Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert are also vastly important. Ive been planning a 'classical primer' that features my favorite albums for certain key works by each of these composers. I want to make a primer that won't be overwhelming for the newcomer. One or two works for each composer only.

I would really appreciate a primer like that.

I've always liked Strauss' "Blue Danube Waltz", Vivaldi's "Four Seasons", Beethoven's "Eroica". My mother played those recordings often when I was a child. They have stuck with me all these years. This guy named Leo has turned me on to some Mahler. I have really enjoyed reading your threads Leo K.

Thanks Audiomark...I'm glad you like those threads.



Nick and I are going to start a classical primer thread very soon, so stay tuned Smile

Bach's work is amazing. Glen Goud's take on the Goldberg variations I play all the time. So peaceful.

I don't mean to take issue with your take on Gould (I know what you're getting at) but "peaceful" isn't a word I'd use to describe him. He's a stone cold freak and if he hadn't been massively successful, would probably be regarded as "outsider art" today. He's just this side of punk, I think.

I almost have a hard time listening to him or watching clips of him, he's so intense. I can't imagine what audiences made of him. I think he is to the classical world what Chuck Berry was to rock.

He quit performing for audiences (he referred to them as vampires) at the height of his fame and retreated to the studio, painstakingly recording (using the studio as an instrument) some of the great masterworks of the 20th century, remaking the Goldberg Variations (formerly known as a harpsichord piece, commissioned to help some royal get to sleep at night). Careerist musicians want nothing more than to be adored by the public. Gould instead shunned his audience and concentrated totally on music.
