favorite classic pieces
 
im a bit of a beethoven fan...i remember when his first single came out like it was yesterday, broke numerous billboard records for airplay and what not.

unfortunately aside from beethoven and bach, i know very little.

which are some of your favorite classical pieces?

fur elise - beethoven
piano sonata no. 8 in C minor or simply "pathetique" - beethoven
piano sonata #14 "moonlight" - beethoven
Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring - bach
Piano and Orchestra Concerto No. 5 in E flat "emperor" - beethoven
symphony #6 in F "pastoral" - beethoven

Stairway to Heaven. :p

Seriously, I don't know any, but I'd love recommendations. I'm currently trying to expand my musical palette so I'll be watching this thread closely and opening up my download folder.

honestly the lack of response to this thread devestates me. surely not all of you deprive yourself of the best music ever created?

I listen to plenty of classical, I don't own enough of it really. :(

Gickies Gageeze 02-22-2003 02:03 AM

ah, but who does?

radio two in canada is quite nice. surely you have a classic station or two in australia? or is it all about those who swing both ways, acdc's? :sexywink:

brettig 02-22-2003 03:02 AM

I do like some classical music, but don't own any. :|

Hallelujah Here She Comes 02-22-2003 12:52 PM

I don't own much, either, but I took a music course last year that sort of sparked my interest. Some of my favorite pieces (most of these are actually from the course I took):

Bach- Air (this is one of my favorite pieces of music ever, btw)
Bach- Brandenburg Concerto
Corelli- Sonata da Chiesa in F
Vivaldi- Violin Concerto in G
Beethoven- Symphony No. 5 (sort of an obvious one, but I like it)
Mozart- Symphony No. 40 in G Minor
Chaikovsky- Overture from Romeo and Juliet
Debussy- Clouds :heart:

I also really like Chopin, especially his Nocturnes. And Copland's Appalacian Spring is gorgeous, although that's getting pretty modern. There's also some opera that I like, although I really only know a few works. But Don Giovanni is awesome. I'll just stop rambling now...

I :heart: Chopin. I :heart: playing Chopin. Chopin was a god.

Favourites:

Impromptu #4 in C sharp minor (Fanataisie Impromptu)

and basically anything he did. I adore his Nocturnes and even his Preludes (although they are on the dark side).

I have always loved Mozarts "Fur Elise" and is probably my favourite piece to play.

:sigh: I sure wish I had a piano.

Gickies Gageeze 02-23-2003 12:38 AM

my mom has a piano but i dont think its ever been tuned.

its like a detuned radio, it buzzes like a fridge, if wanderer, elvis presley or any other radiohead fan knows what i mean... :sexywink:

Please tell me that was a joke. :mad: Sorry, I just really can't stand that piece. maybe cause I've heard it so many damn times...

I listen to a lot of classical. I'd say I prefer romantic and post-romantic overall, though there are definite exceptions.

I also love Chopin (I think it's a requirement if you're of Polish heritage), and he's definitely one of my favorites to play. You should check out his Nocturnes, Polonaises, Preludes, Waltzes, Mazurkas, Ballades, Berceuse, barcarolle, as well as his 2 piano concerti. Ah Hell, check out everything! :D Maybe my favorite single piece is the Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise. I'm going to learn that one of these days...

Beethoven - "appassionata" piano sonata, pastorale, waldstein, tempest, pathetique sonata, Symphony #3, 5, 7, 9, String Quartets Op. 127 and 131, um....and on and on...

Bach - Chaconne in D minor, Italian Concerto, Suites of solo cello, Goldberg Variations

Brahms - Piano Concerto #1 and #2, German Requiem, Rhapsodies, Variation on a theme of Haydn

Mozart - Requiem

Debussy - Preludes, l'Isle Joyeuse, Claire de Lune, La Mer, Deux Arabesques

Grieg - Piano Concerto #1, Piano Sonata in E minor

Liszt - Transcendental Etudes (La campanella, Harmonies du Soir, feux follets, un sospiro), Six Consolations, Vallee d'Obermann, Sonata in B minor, Mephisto Waltz, Hungarian Rhapsodies

Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto #2 and #3, Etudes and Preludes, Moments Musicaux, Melodie, Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

Mahler - Symphony No. 5

Schumann - Traumerei, Piano Concerto #1, Papillons, Kreisleriana, Carnaval

Tchaikowsky - Piano Concerto #1

Barber - Adagio for Strings (one of the most moving pieces of classical music ever written, imho)

Fauré - Pavane

Mussorgsky - Pictures At An Exhibition, Night On Bald Mountain

Ravel - Gaspard de la Nuit, Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunté

Copland - Fanfare for the Common Man

Um....I'll add more on as I can think of them...
