Classical music

I went from being a metalhead who had a couple classical albums to a classical and metal listener. The two musics are really similar: like metal, classical strings together a series of riffs to tell a story.

My favorite composers are:

* Franz Schubert
* Ottorino Respighi
* Gustav Faure
* Anton Bruckner
* Camille Saint-Saens
* Ludwig van Beethoven
* Robert Schumann

All of these dudes are extremely "metal": stormy, powerful, dark and lawless music.

Some of my transition was inspired by the Talk Classical metal forum and "Classical Music for Metal Fans".

Anyone else listen to classical?

Rhoads is not classical just cuz he was learning classical guitar. Gtfo.


Dimitri Shostakovich is the closest anyone got in the classical age to "tech death".

I have to admit I hate classical music. It's just because I only know some of the more famous stuff and everything we listened to in our music lessons, but basically I hate it. It's just impossible to keep in time with the song or to identify things like measure and tempo. Additionaly I dont like the general opinion that classical music is "real" music and metal is just some awkward noise.

I still like the star wars theme though :/

I don't listen that often, but I absolutely love Russian classical. Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky are my two favorite composers of all time. Followed closely by Jean Sibelius. Ever wonder my we have prog and power metal? It's modern classical.

Check out Rhapsody of Fire.

Beethoven was a really angry man - you can tell in his music.

Impossible to keep time? Just because there is a bit of recitative in some pieces doesn't mean it has no time structure at all. Click track =/= in time or rhythmic.

I have never heard that opinion about classical music and metal anywhere.

And star wars isn't classical. C'mon.

Sigh. I shouldn't feed potential trolls.

Holst is awesome. IMO, Bach is the best classical composer though. All his stuff is consistantly amazing.

I love me Bach's cello suites, being a tenor saxophonist, which has a very similar sound/range to the cello.



Pau Casals is a god

I wouldnt say I was a very knowlegeable when it comes to classical (assuming your using as an umbrella term as apose to the period of music), but I do like it when I hear it.
a few I can think of are
Beethoven
Elgar
Carlo Domeniconi
Handel
J.S.Bach
Orf
Wagner (though I need to explore his music more)
C.M. Von Weber
Widor
