Classical music

Recommended Posts

I know very little about classical music, but I do know what I like. My two favourites are Claire De Lune by Debussy:

I guy I worked with used to bring this in on cassette and play it most of the day. Working as an industrial civil servant, this could get you to sleep in minutes.

Had to buy a new washer and dryer, delivered today. Incredible scenes. When the load is done the washing machine plays Schubert’s Trout Quintet, Opus 114. This just happens to be one of the pieces of music we learned in the history and appreciation of music O Level I took back in the day. Mr Snelson, our old music teacher, will doubtless be spinning in his grave as the Samsung chimes rather butcher Franz Peter’s finest. Mrs G was impressed I knew what the music was.

When our washing machine is finished it plays John Cage's 4'33

I watch this often. Would love to attend something like this with a full orchestra. 

 

 

 

The violinist with the specs looks a right filthy mare (or she is in my head at least)

That piece was just performed on the BBC Proms & I had goose bumps most of the way through it.

 

Amazing.

Going with the Mrs to see Andre Rieu in Dublin in December.  Buzzing already about it and hoping to see some of this

His shows include some of the best renditions of Shostakovich's 'Waltz No2'.

To console myself for losing out on a 1967 dior suit off ebay I am hunting for choons and came across the classic section on play.

 

Ive listened to radio 3 and classic fm a teeny bit. Some of it is boss, but there is lots that is dull and boring and crap.

 

Anyone got any hints on stuff I should try out? I like violins and pianos and big bass drums!

 

There are so many CDs that exisit in the bargain bins at Home Bargains that I feel I am missing out. I trust you lot more than Id trust some cravat wearing posho.

 

Much love and high fives

Stu.

 

If you like Violins and Pianos with Big Bass Drums, then you really need to be on to Tchaikovsky. Literally anything he did would work for you. If you can find albums of Jascha Heifetz playing Tchaikovsky, even better.

 

Poor Quality, but it's something to watch him play.

 

Better Quality and a different interpretation of the same famous movement

For a more contemporary composer, I'm a big fan of what the UK's very own Max Richter is doing. The Blue Notebooks was wonderful, and his re-imagining of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" is superb.

    • Jurgen Klopp has downplayed any suggestion that Liverpool struggle to defeat their top six rivals away from home.

      In the first two months of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure, the Reds had recorded two fine victories away to Chelsea (3-1) and Man City(4-1).

      But in recent times, it has become more of a struggle.

      The Reds have picked up just the one victory from the last away 12 fixtures, which was a 2-1 victory away to Tottenham last September.

      It is a stat which caused some surprise for Klopp, but he says the pleasing thing was that the performances were to the level he liked.

      The Mirror reported Klopp as saying:

      “Performance-wise, that’s why it’s so surprising.

      "There was one at Arsenal where we should have won when Virgil [van Dijk] had two no-brainers that he didn’t score, the header against the post.

      “Against Man City we lost last year but that is not a match you lose usually.

      “The margins at the end were so small with the ball not over the line."  

         Klopp alluded to the fact that some of those fixtures were played when his team was at a significant disadvantage compared to the opposition.

      “We were always the [Premier League] club that was in the Champions League the longest.

      “We lost 1-0 at Chelsea two seasons ago when we came from a Champions League game and they were not involved anymore. That helps.

      “I don’t remember these specific away games but it was pretty rare that it was a performance that deserved to lose an away game.

      The manager said sticking to your own strengths is the most important thing when it comes to these big fixtures.
        “We cannot plan winning against a side like Chelsea, City, Tottenham, United.

      “You have to play how you play to deny their strengths and push through your strengths. Then you have a chance.

      “The last game we won at Tottenham was pretty early in the season. That makes it all different.

      “We played against Arsenal early in the season (the 4-3 win in 2016). It was one of the best games for a while and we did really well in that game. 

      “So let’s just keep going and we will see what happens.

      “It is not an obvious problem.”

    • Goosebumps half way through. Its not all bad up there.         
    • Word.   Everyone at that club, from owner to fans, is deeply unpleasant and deserves to be sent home miserable. 
    • I watched that for the first time in years the other day. Unfortunately it wasn't the Director's cut, so that last line was missing.
