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:

and Erik Satie's Gymnopedies:

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.

Beautiful that Mook mate.

 

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.
