I'd put up a poll but.. there's too many xD.

So UG, who is your favorite classical composer?

I'm mostly into the romantic era (IE: Beethoven, Paganini, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, etc..)

not really the romantic era for me - that's just for painting

i'd go for james horner [titanic], trevor jones [last of the mohicans] or john williams [ET, star wars, jurassic park]
#12
Tchaikovsky

Beethoven is not Romantic but is win

Honourable mention for Baroque era men Henry Purcell and JS Bach

Quote by DeaThrash
Johann Pachelbel


He is not actually that bad at all, some of his other stuff (all mighty rare though) is really good

Quote by GoDrex
Debussy
Zappa
Prokoviev
Holst
Penderecki
Varèse
Stravinski
Chopin
Beethoven


Penderecki is great.

Although I've only heard one of his pieces. 10 minutes of the most screwed up music of the time.

Anton Webern. Arnold Shoenberg. Orff.

Currently obsessed by pre-twelve tone era Schoenberg. Transfigured Night is 30 minutes of absolute musical brilliance.

Probably Holst

I think, when people say Bach without specifying, they mean JS.

More on topic: we're studying the first act of Die Walkure in music a2 at the moment, all I can say is Wagner is a ****ing genius. And not in the way that most people I know say he is ("Wagner is GENIUS! Like metal without the geetarz!"), I love his subtle (or sometimes not so subtle) use of leitmotifs, and the way he makes all the different instruments interact with eachother is matched only by Beethoven IMO.

Like everyone, I've only heard Ride Of The Valkyries. After that Metal: A Headbangers Journey (please don't hurt me ) rockumentary I've been meaning to look him up. Is Die Walkure his best piece?

I don't have a problem with people getting into him via metal, I mean his music is pretty br00tal as classical goes... it's just when people say he's like metal without the guitars that I get pissed off, because if you actually listen carefully, the interplay between the instruments is SO, SO much more sophisticated than any metal band I've ever heard. And that's not anything against metal either; most of the time, I'd rather listen to Opeth, Agalloch, Cult of Luna etc than to Wagner.

Ride of the Valkyries is actually from Die Walkure... ('Die Walkure' is german for 'The Valkyries'). It's Wagner's only work that I've heard all the way through... the music is amazing, but it's better to get to know the storyline first, then buy a dvd of it, with English subtitles... cos otherwise you just ain't gonna understand it, and the beauty of Wagner is not only the music, it's how the music relates to the drama.

Thanks a lot, I had no idea. I'll search around the internet/Borders looking for his stuff
