he was great in music where he didn't go overboard with his sappy, syrupy unify the whole orchestra into one voice string-centric style, or in music where that style works just fine. also pretty great at accompanying singing, his opera recordings tend to be good. For example, try his Le Nozze di Figaro, La Clamenza di Tito, and his Ring. I think he's good in Dvorak 9 and the Holst planets as well
>>
>>104901065
He was very good in Sibelius, R. Strauss, Bruckner. Also made terrific recordings of Honegger and Webern.

His late romantic stuff is good, like Bruckner, Wagner and Tchaikovsky. But his classical/baroque is dull and lifeless.

>>104904693
I think to be more specific, children (who usually haven’t had the training such as those they see in competitions) see these competitions as a sort of gateway into the musical world and begin to compare themselves to the musicians they see and start to believe that that’s what they want. Most (such as myself) realize its futile and ultimately fail (i.e. they give up or break out of the spell) and the ones that make it usually suffer from mid-life crisis. Basically they forget why they play music in the first place.

Chopin on harpsichord

https://youtu.be/zEcg7GNy7wU
>>
>>104904835
Technical proficiency is one requirement to be deemed good, yes
>>
>The two keyboards, or "manuals", control different sets of strings. In some designs, the second manual might control strings tuned a fourth (four notes) down from the main keyboard. This allows the harpsichordist to switch to a lower register when required, which frees up the higher registers for a vocal accompaniment.

i’m sorry for your loss but it’s a birthright and all you have to do is say yes

It's a fun experiment, this prelude works quite well but I don't think that the rest of op. 28 is suited for the harpsichord.

But I still think they have a literary canon in the broader sense of the term, just not a musical one.

This lumps way too many cultural spheres into one 'East'. Anyway there are definitely artistic works considered canonical to specific Eastern cultures. Classical music as we understand it is a specifically Western phenomenon however.

The Transcendent

Der Jüngling am Bache D. 638A: The melody flows elegantly like a brook. Great harmonic touches. Perfect.
Ellens Gesang III (Ave Maria): This entire oeuvre is a tribute to the rareness of the truly special melody this is.
Gretchen am Spinnrade: A classic and a jewel.
Nacht und Träume D. 827: Only Schubert could write these voicings.
Der Tod und das Mädchen: So ominous and so profound.
Abschied von der Harfe: Such pain in so few notes.
Herbst: Visceral passion.
Lebensmut (fragment): Optimistic and exciting, but with maturity.
Erlkönig: Never loses its power, no matter how many times you hear it.
Schwanengesang D. 957: Paradoxically, the melancholy of this work makes it possible to transcend melancholy. (Not even I am stupid enough to rank these three cycles song by song.)
Die schöne Müllerin: Shot through with warmth and solace and the most human longing for the sweetly, painfully unattainable.
Winterreise: Sometimes I think if this was the only music that ever existed, things would still somehow be OK.

Too many classical fans don't care for and severely underrate lieder, opera, oratorios and classical vocal music in general. Probably has something to do with them not being able to get past the vocal style.

If Schubert had been healthy and bound to live a couple (at least) more years, would his late sonatas, quintet, late song cycles, late symphonies, etc. still've sounded the way they do? Or was this a result of an epiphany that was revealed to him as he approached death?

Well obviously, he wrote those in pain and agony. Put in him a harem with babes bouncing on his cock all day and I hardly think he'd even start the Unfinished, kek

On a related note, I find it unfortunate that Mozart and Beethoven didn't get into polyphonic writing until near the end of their lives. Mozart didn't know that of course, but Beethoven did and I've always felt his last works are when he finally became his own man. Sad, that's what it took.

ive been listening to classical for a few years, lots of renaissance and modern classical. Never could get into classical era, some romantic works, never really tried. Came across beethoven's 9th and after about 20mins in i dropped it. Is something wrong with me? It just doesn't sound very interesting, it sounds the same throughout, modulates back n forth the same minor keys, not much going on with harmony

Yes there is something wrong with you. Beethoven 9 is both entry level and exit level. It is THE classical piece that everyone in the world should like. I suggest you force yourself to listen to it until it clicks for you. Brainwash yourself into liking it. Your future self will thank you.

try haydn op 20 no. 5 or 3, op. 33 no 5 or 1, mozart clarinet quintet or piano concerto 20, schubert symphony 9 or string quartet 13 to make sure it's not a beethoven thing
and listen to beethovsn symphony 6 and string quartet 14 to make sure its not just a symphony 9 thing

That's why I said in the wider sense, or rather people usually mean that when they say something like "this section is like a chorale".
>>
>>104918030
Classical era music is not about fancy harmonies, it's much more about cleverly realizing standard harmonic progressions and surprise you with seldom deviations of the standard formulas (Schubert was a master of this).

If anyone says "this section is like a chorale" they're stupid. What they should say is "this section is like a 4-part harmonized chorale" as that is what they likely mean.

But don't ignore the other late ones (or all of Schubert's piano music actually), the G and D major ones are really great too.

>>104921000
You’re just wrong. Composers regularly refer to such harmonized sections as simply chorales.

Interesting preference for the forte. I normally vastly prefer a modern grand but I've been listening to Schiff's recent sonata recordings on a forte and actually it's not bad. Gives the pieces a very intimate feeling that somehow works for Schubert but IMO not really Beethoven. Beethoven's sonatas sound like they were written for the concerto hall, Schubert's sound like they were written for the living room.
>>
>>104921528
Beethoven himself stopped writing piano sonatas and said it was an "unsatisfying" instrument back when only the forte existed, so I feel it's kind of our duty as performers to play it on a more modern version of the instrument.

I completely agree, desu I don't really understand why people insist that Beethoven should be performed on a forte.

>>104921844
Well yes but it's still extremely important. What don't you like about Schiff? I prefer his recent one to the original.

Yeah, I think Schubert is one of those composers where the fortepiano is really suited much better to the music. But not only for the intimate character but also because of how Schubert liked to write the bass part of his piano works.
I personally don't like Schiff all that much though. You should compare his interpretations with Badura-Skoda and Staier and see if you really find him any good in comparison.

Why? That makes no sense.

>>104922294
Yeah I listened to their versions of D960 and I don't know, I just find Schiff more playful, like in the way he uses very subtle rubato to exaggerate little syncopated phrases, or where he goes through piano passages quite staccato but still very quiet. He never feels heavy-handed which is strange considering his style isn't romantic at all.

>>104922624
Well I agree for Schubert but as I said Beethoven IMO only sounds right on a modern piano. It's very well-documented that he pushed against the limitations of the forte throughout his career, he wanted something with more power and resonance in the bass to mirror and indeed contest the sound of the orchestra. I mean can you really listen to the dramatic opening statement of the 5th piano concerto and honestly say the forte is the way it's meant to be played? What about the late sonatas, which are significantly closer to Liszt than to Mozart or Schubert? Playing them on a contemporary forte is like castrating them.

>The guitarre d'amour, or arpeggione as it came to be known, was invented sometime during 1823 or 1824 by the respected Viennese guitar maker Johann Georg Stauffer. The instrument -- a kind of enlarged guitar that could be bowed, cello-style, due to an altered fingerboard -- was by no means a success; within just a few years of its birth it had for all intents and purposes suffered extinction. To music lovers, however, this short-lived instrumental curiosity will be forever remembered as the vehicle for Franz Schubert's Sonata "per arpeggione" in A minor, D. 821 -- a work now played almost exclusively by violists and cellists, although it exists in arrangements for instruments as far afield as the euphonium.

>Schubert composed the "Arpeggione" Sonata in November 1824 shortly after returning from Zseliz, where he had spent his second summer (the first one being in 1818) teaching music to the Count of Esterházy's two daughters. The three-movement Sonata must be altered somewhat if it is to be played on cello or viola: the arpeggione possessed six strings, tuned to the same pitches as a guitar's, and the resulting extended range can cause problems when the piece is transcribed; in most editions, certain portions of the piece are transposed up or down an octave from their original position to avoid the extreme registers. However, Schubert by and large avoided the kind of idiosyncratic arpeggiations that earned the original instrument its nickname, focusing instead on the same focused lyricism that drives a traditional sonata for string instrument and piano; in this way, the work readily adapts to modern performance.

during the Paris period, i.e. 290s/300s
flute and harp concerto, piano sonatas 7-9, Paris symphony, etc. then in the 330s he gets even better, then once idomeneo comes out it's mostly perfection from there
>>
>>104923070
Just because modern piano is louder doesn't mean Beethoven would prefer it. I think he would like a more powerful fortepiano where all the registers still shine through rather than the modern piano

/mu/ is not the world, you know...

>[K. 304] is one of the miracles among Mozart's works; it springs from the most profound depths of emotion, and goes beyond the alternating dialogue style to knock at those gates of the great world of drama which Beethoven was to fling wide open. Mozart does not become pathetic, and this reserve, this concealment of an inner fire, together with - in the portion in major of the tempo di minuetto - a brief glimpse of bliss, only enhances the mysterious power of this apparently 'little' sonata.

Putting it on my to-listen-to list.

I also browse talkclassical.com (I only lurk though) and my local orchestras never seem to have any Mozart violin sonatas but plenty other Mozart, so I'm not sure it's only a /mu/ thing.
