>[R.] comes to the subject of Nietzsche, who, out of sheer malice toward him, distorts the passage he wrote in his Beethoven about the way B. listened to folk melodies, and he did it just in order to denigrate R., "ignoring the fact that Beethoven was the greatest melodist who ever lived. The way he took a folk tune and gave it back to the people, transfigured–it was like the condescension of a god, like the unknown maiden appearing to the shepherd. And to rank him on that account somewhere below Schubert! What Schubert was, B. had long known all about. Disgraceful—and so stupid!"
>In the evening [R.] plays and sings An die entfernte Geliebte [Beethoven, Op. 98] to us, greatly moving us with it. "The whole of Schubert can be found in this," he says, and that brings him on to Nietzsche's maliciousness (about Schubert and Beeth.) and the whole dismal experience!

For many people it's their favourite, but the story is the least strong in the Ring and I think Wagner tried to overcompensate for that with the music, which can make it feel disconnected from the action.

Just what the blazes is going on in Max Reger's "Fantasie and Fugue on BACH"? It's not like you can even hear melody or any melodic lines as everything is mishmashed together in such clouded harmony. Apparently tonal, yes, no, who the heck knows? Who knows what the beat even is? It's like the music evokes fog blending into a blizzard with occasional lightning, cyclones and earthquakes thrown in. The chromatic fugue, at least initially, takes us back to the Reger we normally know, but then heads into to those humungous blurred sound walls (wave after wave of 50-note chords...seemingly at least). One wonders what Reger's esthetics at this point are? But I could imagine that in a dimly lit cathedral this would probably be as uncanny as hell. Is this music beautiful, grotesque, ugly, all or none of the above? What's more it doesn't sound like stereotyped avant-garde but rather schizo or psychotic late romantic music, like if the composer composed this with a 5 pound tumor pressing into his brain but not impairing him severely.
>>
>>107256732
sounds like a good ass piece, any recommended recordings?
>>
Is it wrong if you've never listened to any of the entry-level artists any genre wise but are listening to newer stuff and something people would consider either "more complex" or "avant-garde"?

For example, I never listened to Mozart, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, the list goes on... but I listen to Morton Feldman, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Horatiu Radulescu, John Cage, etc.

Am I missing out? Or is it good to skip all the entry-level things because they're outdated and simple compared to newer artists?
>>

What are the best classical pieces written or arranged for electric guitar?
Can be pieces where it's a solo instrument or symphonic work where it only plays a small role and anything in between.
>>
>>107263718
i don't think you should prepare by listening to a recording, experience it fresh when you go to see it live

otherwise you're going to be horribly disappointed with how bad Wagernian singing has become

>>107263811
Guitar is barely a classical instrument, let alone electric guitar
>>
>>107263834
What makes an instrument a classical instrument?
>>
>>107263894
Intruments that are used in a classical context: wooden string instruments, metal/wooden woodwinds, percussion, piano, etc. Electric versions of classical instruments aren't used at all in a classical context but in popular ones
>>
>>107263928
The piano was deemed the death of classical music when it was invented.
>>
>>107263950
And Beethoven, Wagner and Debussy were seen as terrible composers, the decadence of music and bla bla bla, tell me more
>>
>>107263834
It's definitely not common, but I don't see any reason you couldn't compose classical music for electric guitar.
Steve Reich famously wrote electric counterpoint for electric guitar.
Bryce Dessner wrote some classical music with electric guitar
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXMnCi7yFvw
It's not great but I don't think it's terrible either. If there's something to dislike about it I don't think it's the electric guitar.
>>
>>107263894
An instrument is a classical instrument if there's a sizeable body of work composed for it. Almost nobody composed for electric guitar.
>>
>>107263996
Your argument just comes down to "classical instruments are whatever is used today for classical music", which is not a valid definition because it's not static.
>>
>>107264056
Do you think violins today are the same as the designs of the XVIII are the same? That before the cello came much after the viola da gamba? The use of instruments in classical music changes over time.

Never got into Schumann, what's the best recording of this song cycle?
>>
>>107263718
The Jahrhundertring is easily the best filmed, even if I dislike its reggietheatre. It still has many good singers left over from the silver age of Wagner singing, unlike today which has very little as far as singing is concerned. Plus there's just no other filmed production which has such a high standard for stage directions and visuals.. even if I do disagree with its interpretation. Not sure if it would be best for you to be familiar with the best recordings since it might ruin the new singers, but this is a cool historical artefact:

Aphex Twin is great but only when he produces ambient and acid, his piano pieces (and this piano cover of a non-piano piece) are boring garbage if you've listened to 5 minutes of classical music in your life. Even Debussy's throwaway pieces (or let's say "deep cuts" of his opus), for example, are more interesting and better than Avril 14th.

I have a real hard time paying attention to classical so as to know the themes being presented and how they develop. For instance I am listening to an 8 minute long Mozart movement and am 5 minutes in, and just realized I wasn't paying any attention for the past 2 minutes. For some reason it just doesn't catch my interest and my mind always deviates. I can't focus on it.

>Americans have a fascination for tinkerers in the basement, and that's exactly what Ives was. He had some great ideas, but they are almost always poorly executed. He was an incomplete composer, his temperament marred by an unrelenting machismo, and he refused to allow any tenderness into his music for fear of showing an emotion that was supposedly ''feminine.'' You also find this in his writings - he called Mozart a ''sissy'' and said that Chopin wore a skirt.

Ok, whatever. I've gotten my way around hundreds of hours of the old master's music in recent years, and I'm still not partial Mozart. At what point will I appreciate Mozart?

if you're barely musically educated you know it's the complete opposite. mozart's originality is without comparison, just as with beethoven or bach. their achievements are entirely unique. and if you can't recognise this then you simply haven't studied music enough or buried deep into mozart's works.

You're only showing you don't know anything about his operas. 'Bloated' is a nice term to use for Wagner when you want to avoid talking about his value.

Well duhh since Haydn practically invented the string quartet. It doesn't change the value of Beethoven's quartets.

Haydn is definitely shit

>>
>>107293020
That's just typical of the period and its forms, it's the same with Mozart. Romantic (especially late) composers put in all their originality into single and more formally unique works. But that's not to say either are better, just different.
>>
>>107293020
moron
>>
>>107293055
Yes, typical of the period. Because this is pre-Romantic music composed for the upper class. There is no 'edginess' of the suffering of the common man, no hardship, no poetic struggle. This was before 'art' for your contemplation existed. This is music paid for by kings.

This is music for entertaining the court, and to keep the king's cello-playing nephew busy (or whatever). Of course it's well-crafted, just as the clothing was the finest, and the food served by the finest chefs. The best music that money can buy, and a good, lucrative gig for Haydn. $$$$$

Of course, from a purely technical standpoint, the music is a delight, and are perfect studies in tonality. One must get involved on a purely sensual, musical level, enjoying the sounds, and perhaps appreciating the harmonic progressions and deviations ans returns to the home key; the delightfully balanced phrasing.

Pure ear candy, but not much fodder for the soul that wishes to be challenged or tested. No angst or personal involvement, no imaginary drama being unfolded in musical gestures, like the stabbings of Beethoven, or the harmonic angst and turmoil of Mahler. That all came later, when they called it "art" and it was at least free enough from the royal commercial pressure-cooker to become actual personal expression, a.k.a."art."

Redpill me on Rautavaard. Based or degenerate? His harp concerto sounds pretty good, I liked those subtle Herrmann-like trumpets in the third movement. But the rest of his works gives me very fixed feelings, it's mostly some shit full of dissonances, with Soldier's Mass being the peak of this pile of shit. Or am I wrong and his other works are deserving a second listening?
