Speaking of game soundtracks

One of the best games and game soundtracks, nothing spectacular, just eerie and nostalgic.

well.. classical lead us to movie scores. then I was reminded of game scores. I personally am treating this as a Chat thread with a little more.. strictness?

music played by an orchestra =/= classical music, fyi. There seems to be some confusion.

Haha just kiddin'.

But if we're not limiting ourselves to JUST classical music (and do indeed count video game/movie scores) then I could go on for DAYS on my favorite Video Game scores.

It is going to be my profession after all :p

Liszt anyone?

I especially like his symphonic poems.

I feel like liszt has 3 or 4 really outstanding works, and then the rest is mediocre. I find berlioz to be the superior french composer

I wanna compose for films, too! That would be the dream...

There are more opportunities than you think, though. Short film festivals, advertising, tv... are all outlets you can put your ideas to

That's a terrible version apart from the sound. I'm normally not a Bach fan but Glenn Gould absolutely destroys this piece in this video

Lizst was not French. I know what you mean about Lizst, but some of his late piano works like "Funeraille" and "La Lugubre Gondola", and his orchestral music are really well crafted compositionally. His show pieces may not be the most poetic, but they don't detract from his great works, for me.
Berlioz is awesome, but I prefer French music from around the turn of the 20th century and afterwards. The orchestral music of Debussy and Ravel is some of the best in my opinion. And of course, there's Dukas who brought us "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", which is a fantastic piece. There's also Chausson, whose Poeme for violin and orchestra is really beautiful.

I think the Art of Fugue is the pinnacle of musical composition; Bach's counterpoint is so magnificent. I wish I had less to do on the double bass and could refocus on the species counterpoint I was doing before.

P.S. Also a composer in the making here, going to Uni for it next year.

beethovens 9th symphony is like a musical orgasm.

I also like Bach, Mozarts Violin concertos, Brahm, and George Gershwin

Did you have to submit a folio? And if so, did you have the written scores and recordings or just scores or what?

Bach here. I'm trying to play his Toccata and Fugue in Dm on guitar.

I think many of his pieces appeal to me in a mathematical fashion. I especially like this video where the music is visualised: (yes, you probably all know it, but it never ceases to fascinate me).
