    The 'classical' music thread

    Post by Cyber on Mon Aug 27, 2007 7:56 pm

    I'm using classical with a small C because any Music student will tell you the capital letter makes a difference. Razz

    So what orchestral music do we like?

    Shostakovich - Prelude to op. 34, no. 15 (aka the theme to Ever Decreasing Circles) - a slightly mechanical piece, reminds me of clockwork. Sample here... I think it's either been recorded on poor tape or warped vinyl - it's not a badly-tuned piano, so sorry for the quality.

    Had to think about that for a bit... it's In The Hall of the Mountain King from Peer Gynt by Grieg.

    I like Saint-Saens, too: 'The Swan' is my favourite - it sounds so beautiful live. Cellists look so blissed out when they play it.

    Not keen on it, but only because I had to dance around to it when I was in Reception class at school. I was a jellyfish. A really annoyed jellyfish. I had to wear a paper plate on my head with strips of packing material stapled around the edge to make my tentacular appendages. We had to run around the hall in our vest and pants and the Language, Timothy! paper plate kept falling off my head.

    So, yeah, a four-year-old, really annoyed, poorly-co-ordinated, freezing and badly dressed jellyfish.

    This morning I was listening to Alison Moyet's recording of Dido's Lament from Dido and Aeneas by Purcell. It's pretty different but she has just the right tonal qualities for the part. It's from an album she produced with the conductor Anne Dudley. She does a mean cover of God Give Me Strength, too.

    The piano music was beautiful. I was amazed at his patience, too, for taking a photo every day for 6 years. I also saw a parody called Phil takes his photo every day for 2 days. Laughing

    This should really be in the classical section. It's Ave Maria by Bach/Gounod. The reason I'd name two composers here is that initially the music was part of a series of pieces called The Well-Tempered Clavichord by Bach. Gounod adapted it and arranged it for voice in the 19th Century.

    I have a recording of it performed by Lesley Garrett (Northern goddess of all things operatic) and thanks to you posting the video, I've dug it out and am listening to Lesley in all her operatic loveliness. Very Happy
