Oh man, looking at the last few pages 1) I miss this thread and 2) I've posted a ton of sick music.

And now for more Andriessen



I came @ 3:05.

God love the Dutch.

Gotta love Andriessen, the ensemble I was in performed his piece Hoketus a few months ago, some really cool stuff. But incredibly difficult to perform.

All of his stuff is super difficult. I was listening to a recording of De Tijd yesterday by the Schoenberg Ensemble, which seems like such a simple piece, but even they had some issues keeping everything together.

Holy shit, if any of you guys have spotify and are interested, check out The Belcea Quartet recording of the complete Beethoven String Quartets, I think it's incredible. Haven't listened to all of it yet, but I've really liked everything I've heard so far.

If you have 45 minutes, listen to Op.130, but make sure you listen to the Grosse Fuge as the finale, instead of the bog-standard finale that Beethoven was persuaded to write to make the whole work more accessible.

You bitches need far more R. Murray Schafer in your life than you have right now.

English translation of the last verse


Orlando di Lasso was a straight up G.

As someone who is completely ignorant about this type of music, but wants to get into it, I don't know where to start. My brother played a piece of classical music yesterday, and it was so beautiful that I got lost in it; it's just so different to what I usually listen to. What pieces of music would you fine fellows recommend?

Do you know what piece it was?

I don't think there's anything wrong with starting out with some of the titans. Check out some Bach (cello suites, brandenburg concertos, Italian concerto, English suites, Mass in B minor), Beethoven (string quartets, especially #11-16, symphonies, piano sonatas, especially nos. 8 and 14), Brahms (can't go wrong with the symphonies and probably some other stuff), and even though it might be a bit scary, I still highly recommend you check out some 20th century composers: Stravinsky (Rite of Spring) and Bartok (Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste) are pretty accessible places to start.

JRF, do you have any particular listening recommendations for post-WWII classical music which isn't minimalism? I vaguely know Boulez, Stockhausen, Ligeti, Xenakis and Cage but only very obvious pieces.

Oh boy do I. I'm busy at the minute, but I'll think up some good shit a little later.

Alright, here's a good sampler platter of post WWII music. I didn't link to the videos, but they're all available on Youtube.

Ligeti - Ten Pieces for Wind Quintet (and if you haven't heard Aventures, Nouvelle Aventures, Atmospheres and Lontano, check them out too)
Grisey - Modulations and/or Partiels
Cage - Forever and Sunsmell (not technically post WWII, but a brilliant piece)
Berio - Sequenzas, any of them really, I like Sequenza III A LOT
Elliot Carter - String Quartets
Ferneyhough - Whatever you can find on Youtube, it's all the same shit
Crumb - Black Angels
I don't know what you've heard from Stockhausen, but I highly recommend his Kalvierstucke, especially nos. VII-X

That should get you started.

Lovely, thank you very much. I'll start listening now.

I'm just gonna pop in and ask if anybody has any Romantic era music. It's personally my favorite era, and I think I'm beginning to feel the onset of WMMS (wanting more music syndrome).

Any favorites?
