other than him, i haven't really gotten so into classical, i'm actually going backwards from branca, rhys chatham (genius, genius composer), lamonte, tony conrad, charlemagne palestine, cage, stockhausen, terry riley... don't know if all of them count; actually, i don't care, i like their music.

The minimalists and the avant-garde (Cage/ Stockhausen) aren't given much time by the classical 'establishment' but that's no reason to say they're not good. Check out die Valkyre by Wagner if you're into Branca - you might notice that a lot of his ideas are developed out of Wagner's (not to say he stole them, per se). There's plenty of oomph in plenty of more 'acceptable' classical stuff - Karajan's treatment of Beethoven's 5th is brilliantly heavy, I reckon someone like Mahler or Stravinsky should appeal to your taste. I doubt you'd quite go for Elgar or Vivaldi, but Paganini might lead to Rimsky-Korsakov or Szymanowski. I'd even go so far as to recommend fishing out a punchy version of Ravel's Bolero.

Over everything I'd probably recommend Schnittke, he's ridiculously brilliant from about the early 70s to the mid-to-late 80s.

Really? The latter books of Mikrokosmos [sp?] are brilliant; I absolutely hated Bluebeard when I saw it, but his string quartets are probably my favourite quartets I can think of.

Some of you might be interested to click the link I just provided, as it's a pretty big database of public domain scores. Predominently pre-20th Century, but that's by no means a bad thing.

PS this is a great thread!

Today's terribly exciting news is that I'm listening, for the first time, to some works by Arthur Honegger.

Quite dramatic. Some nice moments. I'm enjoying it.

ks- what is your secret morty?

mf- ive found that if you push sounds around too much they tend to push back.

ks- i cant push them around even a little bit?


feldman's a great writer (of words) too.

That collection of Feldman's writing, give my regards to 10th [?] street, is amazing. Writing entirely in black ink. Sorting the chair out first.

Have you heard the last piano pieces? I think it was out on Sub Rosa. Astonishing.

fugazifan - You'll be on the Ernst before you know it. If anyone meets Hahn, tell her I love her.

.

yeah that book is great! i love how he writes about painters and the influence they have had on his work. and the carpets too.

the chair anecdote is wonderful.

he writes that so many artists have destroyed themselves because the "work" is so difficult. it's not the work that's difficult it's the artist that's difficult. so much of the "work" is really about one's consciousness or attention being dealt with and then dealing with the work. he was a wise man.

I have a boxset of 100 pieces of classical music that I'm slowly going through. I think I enjoy Bach and Beethoven the most. I'm learning Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8 Pathetique on piano right now to perform for my HSC.

Also, does anyone know what piece of music is used in this song? (I mean the main riff, I know the Fur Elise part). My music teacher says it's something of Bach's.

I have a boxset of Strauss that I've been rocking lately. He's utterly maddening - amazing, sometimes, and utter tripe at others.
