I liked it until the guitar came in

Im sorry, extremely impressive no doubt, but just not me. I love vais orchestra work, but this just isnt vai, nor will he ever be.

However, excellent musical skills.

Its obviously not something an 18 year old would jam to in his car......still deserved to be appreciated.

btw, that blonde chick who sat in front of the guitarist is ****ing hot...

lol. remind you all the kids played in there were from ages 15 to 18. the guitarist is the person who wrote the whole thing. he is a musical genius for his age. i am listening to his Rock stuff he created with his old band and wow i gotta say its better than the sympanthy.

Beethoven....hahaha

It's a wondeful attempt at orchestration and composition no doubt, but seriously Beethoven? I don't feel the emotion that Beethoven delivers. The out of tune instruments are REALLLY bugging me too.

Let's get one thing clear. Beethoven never wrote his music to show-off his skill. He had an incredible amount of talent so that's he acheived his incredible symphonys. However, this composer sounds like he's showing off most the time. It's very evident when he plays guitar that he's more showing off then presenting his music as a complete piece. The guitar makes it sound incredibly unfinished and filled w/ guitar wankery because it's evident that he's somewhat of a sloppy player.
Run!

Kinda reminds me of something from a Megaman game. The chord progressions are rather simple and almost cliche, if you ask me. And I don't think the guitar fits it AT ALL.
Needless to say, I most likely couldn't do better myself, but touting this kid as "the next Beethoven" is absurd and the comment itself nearly begs to be flamed.
The tapping part's cool. Sounds like Mario Bros.
Is this kid a video game/Van Halen nerd or something? It sounds more like orchestrated NES music than Beethoven. It's not bad, but just nowhere near Beethoven-caliber.
Ugh... guitar really doesn't fit this piece.
#17
When the guitar first came in it sounded pretty awful, but towards the end it was cool. Could do with a bit of variation in there but the guy obviously has talent.

And if you meant symphony, you're also wrong. A symphony is in four movements.

The classic 18th century one yes but that was later expanded on and changed, although in general nearly all symphonies have 4 movements.

Actually, all composers before and during that era used their works to showcase their skills. It was simply part of making a living back in those days. Beethoven played his own works extensively before paying audiences. Part of this stemmed from the Mozart effect. Mozart's father rode his child prodigy gravy train just as far as it would go, but that's another story. The thing about Beethoven is that, even though he did write works to display his incredible keyboard skills, these works were of the highest artistic rank and never pandered to the thrill-seeking audience.

Not bad for being 17, but saying he's the next Beethoven, arguably the best composer of all time, is quite a stretch.

Wasn't there a time when symphonies had only three movements? If not, then what the hell am I thinking about?
#23
tbqh I had to force-quit firefox to get it to stop.

It was bad enough when it was just out of tune string players (that I can live with somewhat)

But I would never have the balls to play like that in front of people. Just wouldn't accept it from myself.


I appreciate that he probably worked hard on this but everything about it screams amateur. The high-school level string players don't help.

Concertos have three movements.

Sonatas have had anywhere between two to four movements.

Some symphonies do as well having a look a wiki, generally its 4 movements but in more recent periods the form has been loosened from it's stricter origins.

Ahh, okay. That's probably what I was thinking of. I've been listening to Vivaldi's Four Seasons recently, so I'm guessing that's where I got mixed up.

this wasnt anywhere close to beethoven, the strings were all doing the same part for the most part, that is not good writing for a symphony, and the guitar clashed a lot with the rest of orchestra, overall very unbeethoven
