Re: Classical music, it's a gas

This thread needs a list!

Favorite requiems:
Duruflé, op. 9
Dvorak, op. 89
Cherubini, Requiem in C-minor
Fauré, op. 48
Britten, War requiem


Interesting how Fauré was not particularly religious but wrote perhaps the most widely-performed Pie Jesu.

It's one thing to listen to the Messiah, it's another completely to play it and be in the middle of the full orchestra and choir.

What would Anderson say?

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

I'm a fanatical Mozart Opera fan, and as such, I'd like to make this contribution to this thread:



Natalie Dessay performs "O Zittre Nicht, mein lieber Sohn"... my fav aria from "Die Zauberflöte".

"Denn mein Hilfe war zu schwach..."

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"


"The Storm Before The Calm"

Into music of the PROG-Dorky-kind? visit my blog or MTF's Prog Rock Thread.

Thanks for this! I love the "less-famous" Queen of the Night aria.

Ugh, the Messiah is dull, I really tried to get into it! I like Handel's coronation anthems and Music for the Royal Fireworks.

Red face Re: Classical music, it's a gas

Arthur Rubinstein, anyone? I LOVE Chopin and I believe this guy was a fantastic player










I also like Tchaikovsky, Wagner and Orff





(anything better than the BPO playing Wagner at the Berliner Philarmonie? those guys are awesome, even if I think their Karajan era will never be surpassed )



(Carmina Burana and Catulli Carmina are AWESOME, besides the guy was such a revolucionary on the musical education for kids)

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

There's a BBC Orchestra rendition of the Fireworks music on Youtube that is currently my favourite piece of music in any genre. I'm something of an ignoramus when it comes to all forms of music, but Handel seems to have composed so many of my favourites - the Fireworks, Zadok the Priest, the Water music, the Sarabande that Kubrick used so effectively in the film Barry Lyndon...

Other ones I like are Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, which is used with very sharp irony in Soylent Green, Bach's Air on a G String, Pachelbel's Canon, the Moonlight Sonata... yes, all the tracks you'd find on a That's What I Call Classical Music album.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Quote:
The music was composed by Leone's long-time collaborator, Ennio Morricone. Due to the film's unusually long gestation, Morricone had finished composing most of the soundtrack before many scenes had even been filmed. Some of Morricone's pieces were actually played on set as filming took place (a technique that Leone had used for Once Upon a Time in the West). "Deborah's Theme", considered by many to be the best piece of this soundtrack, was in fact originally written for another film in the 1970s but rejected; Morricone presented the piece to Leone, who was initially reluctant, considering it too similar to Morricone's main title for Once Upon a Time in the West.
