    Question Classical Music

    Advertisements
    [I've been playing piano since I was six so of course I like classical music] Do you like it? If so, do you have a favorite song?





    The reason I'm asking is because I found one of my favorite songs tonight and I can't quit listening to it.

    Smetana: "The Moldau" - YouTube



    Oh! And on that note! () AFTER FIVE YEARS I'M FINALLY GETTING MY PIANO BACK!!!! It's an antique and in dire need of tuning but I don't care, I feel like it's a part of me.




    Another one of my favorites that I to play and was played at mine and DH's wedding...

    Frédéric Chopin - Prelude in E-Minor (op.28 no. 4) - YouTube
    (you might recognize it from The Notebook)

    I listen to classical music while I'm reading. I find it interesting that the music goes a lot with the storyline in my books. I don't have a favorite but I listen to the Symphony Hall station on my XM radio.

    Have fun getting back into your piano playing! I'm a former choir soloist that wished I could play during competitions.

    This is probably one of my favorite etudes.

    Vladimir Horowitz plays Chopin "Ocean" Etude Op.25 No.12 in C Minor - YouTube

    and I've been on a Shostakovich kick lately, so this is the last thing I listened to. I am in love with the 8th Symphony now, particularly the third movement.

    I do like it, but I couldn't name any of it off the top of my head.

    Thank you! I am beyond thrilled about it. I have a full size keyboard but it's just not the same as my piano. The sound and the feel of the keys...it's unique.

    Do you ever miss choir? Were you Soprano or Alto?

    It's still a great song.

    I love anything DeBussy. I have always loved whole tones. I also love Grieg, and some Beethoven- the most tempestuous of his work. I love Vivaldi, but more from a nostalgia point of view than because it really speaks to me. And I ADORE Rachmaninoff. I wish I had the time to practice up some Rachmaninoff.

    I miss going to the symphony. I like more modern classical pieces. My favorite is Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (MTT/SFS: Stravinsky's Rite of Spring (I) - YouTube) though it is closely followed by The Firebird Suite. Rite of Spring was in the first Fantasia movie and Firebird was in Fantasia 2000. I have seen them performed by the ASO multiple times and every time I walk away speechless.
