>>103315269Why is classical music so white y'all?
>>103315900eat better food, get your heart rate up daily
>>103315950Seems to be more of an Asian thing nowadays
>>103315900learn music theory
>>103315269Contrary to popular belief, metal music is actually highly technical in composition, and very heavily influenced by classical music.
>>103315950To be less white is to:- be less oppressive- be less arrogant- be less certain- be less defensive- be less ignorant- be more humble- listen- believe- break with apathy
>>103316092Maybe you should go analyze some metal then and post your findings.

>>103316092just 15 minutes ago i was thinking about how much i hate when people say this. thanks anon
>>103316092Are there any examples of fugues in metal? I know there’s lots of counterpoint but I mean fugues specifically.
>>103317130There are some in prog-rock
>>103317130https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAq817mTb50&ab_channel=DarkTr4vlsum actually yes
i want to play the polonaise heroicahow do i go about learning it, im a noob
>>103317295one electric guitar in an orchestra playing one part of a very classical-sounding fugue does not make it metal.
>>103317329that's a big flute
Actually thinking about it are there any examples of classical forms used in popular/contemporary music? I feel like some of Yes’ longer pieces have similarities to sonata form but can’t think of anything else.
>>103317502there's gotta be some songs using loose variations on rondo form (probably not deliberately)can't think of any specific tunes at the moment. but I feel like it exists somehwere, I haven't listened to much non-classical music for a while though.I know one thing that's common in a lot of metal is to do a little ABA thing and then move on to another section which may be ABA or some other form, and the end with an outro never recapping the first section. sort of like a scherzo and trio except the scherzo is never repeated after the trio.but yeah I think pop artists should experiment a lot more with form.
>>103317391Get lessons, play a lot of easier pieces first, then go for it when you've had a few years of practice. It's pretty difficult.
>>103316184All of the famous composers are white? Where is some black representation?
>>103317634I’ve heard an argument that the traditional pop form (verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus) is a type of heavily condensed sonata form with an exposition repeat and usually no first theme recapitulation. I think it’s a stretch though.
>>103317659Why would you want famous black composers?The idea of a singular individual "composer", who is supposed to get all the fame and recognition for a piece of music, is a white phenomenon in and of itself.It's a tyrannical and patriarchal idea. Music is supposed to be created collectively, through a gradual process of communal effort filtered through shared cultural and historical experience. Compositions and music should develop organically and there shouldn't be just one "composer" who artificially "constructs" a piece from the ground up egotistically and plays God.That is a very anti-black ideology.
>>103317761Beyond the meaningless argument that's going to break out, is there any good classical works that were written in a communal effort? I'd like to hear that.
>>103317761very effective bait, 8/10
>>103317761What makes this patriarchal?
>>103317659Beethoven was black but whites aren't ready to accept that yet.
>>103317788I think there's a requiem for Rossini written by a bunch of composers
Best recording of the Diabellis?
>>103317761Damn what you're saying is whites > blacks then
>>103317659They already have representation because black people are human and so are the famous composers. Race is a social construct that has no scientific basis.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzHdX021Mmk&t=286s&ab_channel=zauber620What if this was "Prelude and Fugue in D minor for Choir + Orchestra" and Mozart wrote the well-tempered choir and orchestra with 24 preludes and fugues
>>103318252then it would be the greatest book ever made

I've seen the Ring, Tristan, Parsifal and just watched Tannhauser for the first time. Tannhauser is weird, the music is the easiest to follow but I barely understand the plot. Its been the opposite case in all the other Wagner operas I've seen. Is the plot supposed to be kind of abstract or do I need to read a synopsis and watch it again?
>>103319127one gay thing in opera is when musicologists figure out that the composer revised an opera and multiple versions were performed and then influence people to perform the different versions instead of having a 'definitive' one. I'm not sure if that's the case here as I know nothing about Vivaldi.
>>103319218Who knows? Are you as good as you think you are?

>>103317659>black representationDude classical is dying, if any black person wanted to be a composer they would have no problem getting all the exposure and recognition they could ever want. Last I checked all public schools teach music appreciation and teach you the basics of playing the recorder and piano, and, again, if you are black and wanting to do this every conservatory in the world would be tripping over themselves to recruit you.And besides, theres an entire pantheon if jazz greats that's 95+% black. No matter what you compose, in America you'd probably get labeled a jazz person no matter what your actual style is in order to please white liberals and the black PMC grifter class.

>>103319221What didn’t you get? Maybe you just watched a bad production. It’s fairly simple:>T abandons his people to go shag Venus >he decides it’s not for him so goes back>they welcome him back>during a song contest T reveals he shagged Venus>everyone is shocked and tells him to go repent to the pope>the pope tells him he’s beyond saving>he returns and forsakes god>he then sees Elizabeth has died from grief and his love redeems himPart of the issue is that IMO Tann isn’t a particularly well-written character. His motivations and ideals are seldom clear and he seems to act and talk less as a free-thinking person and more as a narrative tool. He’s extremely inconsistent and yet we never really see any of the conflict within him, only the final result which comes down to ‘I wanna shag Venus’ or ‘I love Elizabeth’.

Did your teacher ever break you by expecting you to play a piece way above your level? I've been playing for one and a half years and since the last 3 months or so I've been practicing Pathetique mvt. 1, moving forward at snail pace. It's not even like she's a bad teacher, she's a concert pianist and helped me improve a lot, but I feel like she thinks I'm much more talented than I really am. She probably wants to push me to my absolute limit because I'm one of her favorite students, always practicing and loving classical music and all, but I don't know if that's very productive. I'm certainely starting to lose my passion, I used to feel a lot when playing piano, but this piece is so far above my level (atleast everything past page 1) I only focus on the technical aspect. It doesn't even feel like I'm playing piano anymore, just pressing the same keys over and over and over until I got the technique down. At first I was happy when she said I'm talented and that I'm one of her best students (as in the fast progress I'm making), but those high expectations are starting to crush me.
>>103324174> It doesn't even feel like I'm playing piano anymore, just pressing the same keys over and over and over until I got the technique down.This is the curse of not playing Chopin etudes instead.
>>103324218If Pathetique mvt. 1 is fucking me over, Chopin etudes will be just as bad. It took me like 3 months to get the first 3 pages down

>>103324969you can mirror it noob
Is BWV 807 - Prelude (2nd english suite) a good intermediate piece?
>>103324969You can also practice other pieces.
the thing about the etudes is you cannot play them at all if you’re doing them wrong. a lot of other music, u can stumble through with bad technique. not the etudes, u won’t get anything even remotely acceptable or pain free if you do them wrong. theres no middle ground, and once you get it, they just keep getting deeper
>>103324953I'll humor you and give you one reason (out of several) why it's not valid, and then this conversation will probably end.Shakespeare is not "more advanced" English than other examples of English text, the way musical compositions can "more technically demanding" than others. Shakespeare is written in an obsolete and outmoded kind of English which is no longer used or readily comprehended by the average native English speaker, so it would make no sense to teach an ESL student Shakespeare if your goal is to teach them to be proficient in modern English. This is besides the fact that comparing learning an instrument to learning a language is completely invalid, because the former is in large part a physical skill and the latter is mostly an intellectual one.
>>103321583for me its wachet auf bwv645/140.4
>>103325230>the thing about the etudes is you cannot play them at all if you’re doing them wrong.> a lot of other music, u can stumble through with bad technique.sounds like a good argument in favor of the etudes imo

>>103325230i learned a lot of music that i wasn’t in the end satisfied with what i was able to make with the notes and it felt like a waste of time. i spent 18 months on 25/1 and 10/1 and now everything is laughably easy. it’s almost mean how they teach, most people play from birth and have no concept what the motions are, they think u must play forever all this repertoire, it’s what they did, that u can’t execute, i guess to learn musical playing before turning to serious technical studies. it’s the method for children. an adult iscapable of studying the etudes and understanding the movements and once they’ve done that it’s just a matter of strengthening the body and imagination. obviously executing it well is gonna take years, but it was always going to take years, and you’re nothing until you can do them, so what are you working on instead of the etudes? nothing you’ll be satisfied with in the end, there will be endless flubs with terrible tone because the noob randomly flails his arms being told to keep them light with a flexible wrist and to imagine the singing tone as if there wasn’t a very precise and rehearsed sequence of movements occurring that can be isolated and practiced to perfection. it’s useless. it’s like trying for even scales by thinking about even scales instead of just calmly executing a well practiced 6 or 15 note slur
>Courtesy accidentals or naturals (in parentheses) may be used to clarify ambiguities but are kept to a minimumBut what does it mean when a natural in parentheses () is in the same measure after a sharp or flat?I've seen this in some Bach and Scarlatti pieces.
>>103325896Couldn't have put it better myself.
>>103325969could be crossover of parts/voices, perhaps?Same note is coincidentally played by a different voice?
>>103325896Chopin's etudes are not for beginners and neither for intermediate players. They are not meant to build technique (in the meaning of: from scratch) - they actually already require a serious amount of technique on which they are meant to build up.Chopin only let his most advanced and best students play them.

Broscience theory time - the minds of all children and the minds of adults who still have imaginations are capable of spontaneously generating fantastic original music in the 18th century Viennese classical style, and always have been. Mozart had the extremely rare ability of being able to transcribe this music from his head to his pen without the difficulties normies get from being too slow and bumbling with their pen or their instrument to bring out exactly what they're hearing in their mind. Furthermore, he happened to have this skill at the exact time and place that this music happened to be culturally relevant
Do you guys take notes somewhere while reading?
>>103329207this is /mu/ not /lit/, wrong tab.
>>103329315I meant reading about music.
>>103328970all classical musicians had the ability to do that due to their training.
>>103328970i like your hypothesis, but the fact is only 0.1% of every single person I have met in my life has the ability, or even the inclination to write a melody. most don't see the need or think it is even something possibly worth doing.
>>103328970Its very possible however that style has been explored very thoroughly by many great composers. For someone with the ability you said they probably wouldn’t want to spend the rest of their lives “competing” against such greats when they could write in their own “original style”.
>>103329656I cant be arsed to look up primary sources but I know I've read quotes from his contemporaries saying it was freaky how he was able to quickly transcribe an entire piece of music from start to finish with no mistakes. Mozart himself said something to the effect of 'I compose like cows piss', like it just came out of him on command.>>103329790Thats why I called it broscience. I think the classical style is an innate thing thats existed at least as long as children have been exposed to musical instruments (so they have the sound of, say, a piano in their ears) and that they're brains effortless generate it even if they arent "musical". I didnt have any interest in music at all til I was a teenager and didn't ever hear classical outside of looney tunes but I used to spontaneously hear that style of music in my head all the time. Even now when I'm in a lucid state I hear original, good, classical music in my head but I'm not fast enough to get it out via an instrument or paper before it dissipates from my mind. I feel like Mozart must have always been generating music in his head like I did when I was a kid but with the key difference of being fluent enough in transcription and improvisation that he could actually extract those ideas from his mind.
>>103327997No bullshit, the Fantasia 2000 version of Rhapsody in Blue is still the best version to me. I've listened to half a dozen other versions and none of them come close.
>>103321006Fournier is best.
>>103329966why wouldn’t they compose in the tradition to fly among friends?
Hello /classical/, quick question, is there any reason at all why the suggested fingering for this passage starts with 4? I dunno why you wouldn't start it with your pinky seeing as though it wants you to change your hand position to play the second G with your pinky anyway.It doesn't really matter too much which way I play it but I'm just interested, is there a logical reason to play the theme starting on 4? Piece is the first invention in C Major in Bach's 2 part inventions btw
>>103331128Probably because you should have landed there on a 4 naturally based on where your hand was at the end of the previous measure.
>>103331190The note before it is a low D a 4th below the G and there's a rest in between them anyway but yeah maybe that's the intentienton
I just realized I've never listened to Schumann outside the Kinderszenen piecePls recommend me accessible Schumann pieces.
>>1033311285432 is harder than 432154 is half the hand 123 is the other half the hand, arg about 23 being the middle and the thumbarm it’s own thing but yeah it’s also a phrasing thing you’d want the first note there softer i think maybe that line has a small crescendo and it’s generally easier to make a soft sound with the 4th finger than with the fifth, also the movement is smaller for such a short phrasei’d use 4 there for sure too, also make it easier to use the thumb at the top of the line, the alternate would be 5321 using the pinky twice there for a subject and then an accompaniment would maybe sound too flat, kinda depends tho but experiment and see how they feel and sound different
>>103331269these are nice https://youtu.be/cuABwwXMVAY
>>103331287Thanks for the helpful response, I think you're right, the fourth finger, being a bit stronger than the 5th, has a bit more control over the timbre of the note than the 5th and does sound a little smoother, if only slightly.
>>103331393I'm also not playing this very fast yet so it'll probably be more noticeable when I play it at speed
>>103331393I wish my 4th was as strong as my pinky tell me your secrets
>>103331443I learnt the C Major Fugue from the well tempered clavier, it was a mission to finish and a bit outside my ability range (I can play it through but it'll be a while before I can make it "sing"). Anyway, my fingers got pretty buff in the process. Someone recommended me the 2 and 3 part inventions to me so gonna play them for a bit before going back to WTC coz it's a bit nuts for me. But yeah playing a fugue with 4 voices puts your fingers to work lol

She actually wanted me to play Waldstein before but then told me I should play Pathetique mvt.1 when I said I wanna play something easier. She really wants me to play advanced pieces even though I'm not even good at intermediate.
I've listened to Beethoven's 8th, I think I've listened to it, but I remember nothing from it.I'm going to listen to it again, but is it unmemorable? You hardly hear anyone talk about it, yet Wagner considered "Beethoven's last four symphonies" all to be on the same level.
>>103332244That's kinda weird desu, always good to get your technique really solid with intermediate stuff before skitzing out too hard on soke harder stuff. Do some intermediate Bach or something. Also nice trip-dub-dubs
>>103332349>easy pieces make a good techniqueelaborate
>>103332219Maybe because it's unfinished?
>>103332281I've listened to Beethoven's 8th probably dozens of times and I too cannot remember anything about it. If I heard it again I'd probably say "Oh yeah, THAT symphony."
>>103332413I just think people can benefit from playing pieces well within their ability range and focusing on playing them really excellently. Sometimes when a piece is on the very limit of your ability range you can play it but not very well because your technique isn't good enough. I think it's good to aim to play it very beautifully. If you're working so hard to hit the right notes that you can't play it with expression or finesse then it's probably a good idea to do some pieces that are a a bit easier so you can work on expression and timing and stuff without wigging out about the sheer difficulty of a piece.Not saying people shouldn't play harder pieces but it's good to come back to pieces within your ability range so to focus on specific aspects of playing.
Verdict on Albert Einstein's music? What should I listen to beyod Peer Gynt?
>>1033322818th is in my top 3, mostly because of the final movement. In my head, the moment where the music modulates to F# sharp minor and "explains" the C# is quite closely linked with the 9th symphony's outburst before the solo bass recitative, with the music feeling stuck and panicked in this distant key. Instead of the bass voice, it's the entry of the brass which smashes the piece back to F major and some sort of joyous order is restored. In some ways, the symphony is Beethoven showing that he can still write in a more traditionally classical way but is doing so with a sense of humour (the second movement being either a metronome joke or a sending-up of Haydn, and the conclusion of the symphony being several "false" endings as Beethoven does the orchestral equivalent of hammering away F major chords on the piano so the audience knows they're home.
>>103332548Also any excuse to post some Scherchenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsIpbvwdE-0
>>103332528Piano Concerto, String Quartet, Holberg suite, Lyric Pieces, op.48 songs
>>103332563What do you like about Scherchen?
>>103322639Can't believe you didn't go for Yo Ma-Ma
>>103332723not him but that performance is great because of the speed, focus, and drive; while many other conductors who adhere to Beethoven's fast tempi lose themselves in nervousness, Scherchen sounds controlled despite the breakneck speed. the timpanist especially turns in a fantastic performance, i don't think anyone else quite nails Beethoven's liberation of the timpani like they do in that performance
Is there a site like rateyourmusic.com that actually listens to classical?
>>103332912No and thank God there isn't because it would be swarmed by idiots voiding its purpose. Besides, rating music with points and scales is a sign of smoool brain and should be reserved to smoool brain genres like pop and rock and metal. Concert and classical music should be enjoyed and discussed, which is impossible if you don't discriminate participation and introduce grading with points.
>>103332963I mainly just want a site to find, categorize, and collect classical music all in one place, and to find works similar to those I like
What string quartets are like Beethoven's late quartets?
>>103332869Thank you, I'll listen to it now and see if it's more memorable this time.
>>103321607Why not? Genuine question.
>>103333391They're popular and /classical/ is so contrarian even popular musicians from a niche genre are disliked
>>103332563Do you know if there are any Scherchen recordings of Tannhauser? The "pulse of life" famous in the overture and throughout the work I think could really benefit from him.
>>103333889He didn't really record operas. There's a Rienzi with di Stefano singing the title role in Italian, then a Siegfried Idyll.
>>103334153Kind of odd just to have recorded those two pieces.
>>103279079>you missed an important deadline because you thought it was "until today" rather than "until 12PM today" even though you've had all the material ready for days and wanted to give it a last check and a few days later you discover you're going to be out of a job, with scarce probabilities of finding another because mostly nobody hires people during this pandemicmusic...for t-this feel?
>>103335022I don't doubt you, but it's just odd. Quite interesting seeing what else he recorded, such as excerpts from Weber's operas.
>>103315269Any /x/ anons here?Arno said he hates classical. Why is that? How can a high IQ entity not appreciate it?
>>103328652The other way around
>>103328970The problem with your theory is that before the classical era people didn't hear this music in their heads but rather something like baroque minuets or, even earlier, some cantus firmi maybe.
>>103330014Most children's music is based on Viennese classical style. That's the only reason.
>>103331128I suppose it's to avoid jumping onto the pinky for greater accuracy.
>>103331764Ok, I'll be the one to take the bite and say that Richter is much too slow there. The balance of Schubert's late sonatas crucially depend on playing the first movements proper moderato.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul2eksnY6IM
Gustav Adolf Merkel : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToqTeF-M8vEIt sounds like Mendelssohn on steroids
>>103331722Good now go listen to his lieder until you actually click with Schubert.
>>103335343I like this version that you've posted too, but Richter's is still extra special for me, even if it is too slow. I guess it's kinda comparable to his C Major fugue from the wtc, even tho it's slo his touch (and timing) is just so perfect and delicate that it almost feels like it's in zero gravity or something and that time is some irrelevant, secondary concept.https://youtu.be/Dkt75juxvxwI couldn't find a video that was only the fugue and not the prelude but you've probably heard it anyway.
>>103327537my mom had a mozart for babies and studiying. I dont remember hearing it until i was like 5 when i actually hated it. Because i associated with being misserable doing my homework. The song that played mostly was eine kleine natch musicI wasnt until last year that i could remove that asociation from my mind and enjoy it as something different
chopin etudes suck and barelly sound like musicyou are better off learning some pieces by him

Would 3-4 hours of intense studying from the age of 19 to 40 make me able to compose decent /classical/ music?This is how my schedule is set up right now and I'm trying to learn as much as possible within these subjects>Go to sleep at 22>Wake up at 7>2 hours of Writing>2 Hours of language studying>2 Hours of drawing>3-4 hours of Piano playing / classical studying>2 hours of language studying>Rest of night reading>1 hour break maximum every day for reading the internet or eating dinner
>>103336873Anon, you should try less to fit everything into different times of day, and try more to space it out through the days of the week. As well as months.You need to have a social and outward life as well.
>>103337002>You need to have a social and outward life as well.no

>>103336873How do you make a living though?
>>103328566wow, what an intellectual you must be. alas, to have but one iota of your brilliance and taste. feel validated? now go jack off to some stockhausen records and leave the rest of us uncultured simpletons alone

>>103331782the magic flute is a treasure, and your parents are unfathomably based
>>103336826no tf he isn't, unless you're using the normie definition of "classical" that encompasses all western-tradition non-pop music
>The courtship continued, not entirely smoothly. Surviving correspondence indicates that Mozart and Constanze briefly broke up in April 1782, over an episode involving jealousy (Constanze had permitted another young man to measure her calves in a parlor gamewhat a whore
>>103337467You shouldn't try to be an alien to other people, I'm sure there are some social activities or events that you enjoy, some friends you enjoy the company of. Do you meet with any of the people at those group sessions/classes outside of it?Heaven has never been described without others.
Vladimir Ashkenazy is the greatest pianist thats lived the last 2 centuries
>>103337577when does classical music end then?
>>103337577That's how everyone here used the term faggot
>>103337674Classical in the narrower sense ends the latest with 1828, after the deaths of Beethoven and Schubert. Since both were transitory composers you would properly date it a few years earlier.
This is really good broshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RajAq0Yd-s4
>>103338316how do you call the classical music being produced today then?
Do you believe composers were more likely to peak as young natural talents or as adults with developed enough intuitive and theoretical senses?
>>103338518if they ever peaked as young that's because they had someone old and well instructed behind them
who did it better mozart piano sonata 11 movement ii or mozart piano sonata 7 movement i

>>103338440I am not the poster from above, so I still call it classical.
Pianotards, I'm learning Chopin watlz in a minor posth. How finger arpeggio???
if i cant already play all beethoven sonatas, all chopin nocturnes. The entire goldberg variations, the Campanella, el contrabandista, etc etc. Just by watching Rosseau and piano roll videos on youtube then whats the incentive to learn to read sheet music and learn theory?
>>103338518Only composer i can think of that wrote their most groundbreaking/best works when they were young is Erik Satie.
>>103339365mozart kid>mozart adult
>>103339377Mozarts requiem is infinitely better than anything he wrote.
>>103339316i have the same question
>>103339402check his early works the requiem is good but some of this stuff is other leaguehttps://youtu.be/FcP2xiMTUQc?list=PLUCFn3jpLiRyx-3WT9AvE8eakYxdAGNLk
>>103339515His early works are of course good Im just sayin his later stuff is much more realized and much more stylistically his own.

>>103339856from the look of the singers and the fact taht I don't recognize the song I'm going to guess it's an aria from cosi fan tutti which I still need to listen to
>>103340189i though it was from the magic flute because that chapter is the last from that series, so this would be like one of his last works. But i dont remember hearing it in that opera
>>103337059wow imagine your dads the greatest composer of all music in all time and he dies right after you’re born
>>103336142???chopin etudes are more musical than most music
>>103336873yes, but my experience doing a similar romantic study, with far more reading initially, don’t try to fit everything into one day, work for improvement over the month, focus on something for that week, and you have to pick a main focus and stick to it dailyyou’ll find improvement comes in bursts, and often things need time to ferment like wine or dry like paint, and u can’t rush this, that’s when it’s best to set the thing down for a week or two and focus on something else also, add oil painting, paint with bob ross, life changing desu, i look at everything in a new way
if this was notated would i be classical?https://vocaroo.com/1lvLi7rOyiQU
>>103337672Ashkenazy was only good at playing lightweight shit like Chopin's waltzes and Brahms' Hungarian Dances.
