yeah, you heard.
Actually I would prefer some classical (no caps).
More Bach than Mozart.
I'm doing it for my Grade 6. It kicks arse
Vaughn Williams - Fantasia On Greensleeves. Which is like the sort of music you'd hear after a trip in an open top car through the idyllic 1920s countryside to a stately home, on a wind up gramaphone in a conservatory being dumped by your aristocratic lover.
Beethoven's 5th Symphony.
Any Bach. At all!
Michael Nyman - The Piano, especially The Heart Asks Pleasure First
Lots of Purcell
Prokofiev's Romeon & Juliet
not vayghn williams fantasia on greensleves. god. amazing. but once youve played it 60,0000000 times = less fun to hear.
percell is total win. corelli too.
YAY for michean nyman. definatly get hold of some.
i like faure at the moment too
The Draughtsman's Contract and The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover
They are variations on Purcell and fit as fuck!!!!!
Fantasia On Greensleeves blows my mind though. As does The Lark Ascending
anything associated with greensleeves or pachabels cannon can DIE.
Schubert or Jensen=good romantic stuff
I really like concertos though. Mathematical music FTW
you may as well get rid of about 2 billion pop songs then!
the actual thing is alot different to other songs employing the basics of it. Having to play that bastard on piano on request killed any form of enjoyment I could get out of the original forever
its all about mozart's requiem, but im sure you have that already. also prokofiev's romeo and juliet. beautiful.
is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.
Try also Berlioz - Sinfonia Fantastica.
henryk gorecki's "symphony of sorrowful song".
the most beautiful piece of music ever written.
its for people who wanna look clever or old people
about sophisticated taste and philistines*
i just wanted someone to get all annoyed though :(
in such quick succession then!
Schoolboy error :p
but im just an angry man on the warpath
He composes awesome percussional stuff. There are tubular bells all over the shop - it's great.
but i like:
prokofiev - montagues & capulets
beethoven - 9th, 2nd movement and moonlight sonata (essential)
debussy - claire de lune
tchaikovsky's 1812 overture is pretty neat too
beethoven's 6th (pastoral)
elgar cello concerto
bach toccata in d minor
chopin's polonaise no 6
i need much more knowledge of classical tbh.
Play it very loudly
Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
'Humming Chorus From Madame Butterfly'' by Giacomo Puccini.
