I'm more of a Baroque person, so Vivaldi, Handel, Bach, Buxtehude. But Classical period's good as well :3 <3 Mozart.

But fugues are annoyingly hard to play. ;-;

I happen to be a big Classical junkie; just got into art music about nine months ago. It's a bit hard to list off favorite composers since there's so many extraordinary ones. Recently, I've been listening to a lot of Prokofiev. Three of my favorite compositions that I wished more people would listen to are Bartok's Cantata Profana, Taneyev's Piano Quintet, and Kalinnikov's First Symphony; honestly, they're wonderful.

Yeah, articulation in fugues can be a pain; technically, they can be difficult as well, but articulation's still much more of a problem.

I generally like classiacl music but lately I find that it is somewhat "boring" because I do not find it dramatic enough. It's a bit too soft for my tastes. So, Can anyone recommend my some composers taht could appeal me more?

Look for the music of Aram Katchaturian, especially the Sabre Dance or the Masquerade.

Or, the music of the esteemed Joe Hisaishi, for example, Oriental Wind.

Well, there's always the Bartok piece I mentioned earlier, the Cantata Profana. You can also listen to Beethoven's Third Symphony "Eroica"and 23rd Piano Sonata "Appassionata", Schubert's Eight Symphony "Unfinished", Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and Ruy Blas Overture, Prokofiev's Toccata, Schnittke's Second String Quartet, Saint-Saen's Second Piano Concerto, and Shostokovich's Eight String Quartet and Fifth Symphony. There's obviously many more, but those are the ones came to me at the moment. Honestly though, if you want drama in music then you probably would enjoy listening to individual movements more than entire works.

Arrow still digdiggin'

May I be a bit pretentious and say I'm proud "my" thread has been sort of popular? Some posts are even very useful and I really enjoyed the story about Bell and chaconne at the subway station.

Problem is, my primary intention was to create a thread about classical music IN anime, not classical music IN general.
For instance, i liked the review of "la corda d'oro". Hope there will be more soon. Please teach me lots!

Cool, a classical thread

I haven't recently heard much classical in anime recently, except for Hosaka's cheesified theme music in Minami-ke. Shame... ;_;

Nothing to do with anime, but just wanted to get out there that the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra is pure win. they're like...the Gurren Lagann of classical music.

Hoping this thread becomes active again

Hmm...not too often used. I think what comes to most people's minds would be Evangelion's heavy use of classical towards the end of the series + in the Death and Rebirth movie.

Assembling the characters into a pretty balanced chamber group was an interesting idea for Canon in D.

My favorite genre of classical is Baroque, especially Bach and Vivaldi. I mostly use it to crunch through my calculus/physics as homework music.

Classical Music Is Truly Classical

What makes music truly classical is music that lasts down through the ages - music by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy, Stravinsky, Ravel, etc.

Since it is Christmastime, Tchaikovsky's ballet music for The Nutcracker (1892) - a treasure trove of everlastingly popular tunes - can be heard everywhere today, from holiday movie fare to television commercial jingles.

Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major.
That's my favorite classical song, helps me relax and sleep too.
It has a beautiful sound!

hmm can't say I'm a big fan of minimalism, but it is very cool and gives a unique feeling when it works.
i like fratres, kremer has a great recording. it gets pretty freakin hard for the cello though. this kind of stuff requires great concentration from audience and performer, not something you can let yourself go emotionally with.

I love listening to Classical music when I do homework too. There is nothing like Mozart to ease the pain of Quantitative Research Methods.

There's one piece I absolutely loved, Antonin Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 "From the New World", as it has remarkably lively animation through the four movements.

More recently, I've come to like Mozart's/SŁssmayr take on Dies Irae, but I've yet to find a record with the complete requiem!

^there should be plenty of recordings of mozart's requiem. go with something like karajan/berlin philharmonic.

well i do agree his work is very beautiful and certainly emotional, but i always felt that there's a certain feeling of restraint in his work, the emotions are there but he's not going crazy with them as opposed to someone like, i dunno, Brahms. i feel the same way with a lot of minimalism, probably because its so structured.

I get what you're saying, it's just that I don't conceive the music in such a way. Maybe it's exactly because of this "restraint" (which I don't percieve as such) but I don't think I have heard more emotional music, ever.
When it comes to Steve Reich or the likes, I can kind of agree with you, even though I still like his works a whole fucking lot.
