>The particular place of the woodwinds and woodwind combinations in Lohengrin is linked to the poetic idea of the wedding that dictates the style of the entire opera, and not just the bridal procession and the nuptial chamber. Strauss has drawn attention at one point to the imitation of the sound of the organ as a way of allegorizing that poetic idea: use of the organ itself implies the task of reconciling the orchestral sound with the sound of the organ, which is alien to Grand Opera and indeed unbearably banal within it. This leads to the combination of highly contradictory elements. The minister and lady’s bower of medieval romance give rise to the use of the organ to evoke the ideal image of an all-embracing cosmos confirmed by God, and the woodwinds create this archaic picture. Their task is, as it were, to present an objective counterweight to the subjective expressiveness of the strings. At the same time, however, in the name of that desire for a seamless formal totality which constitutes the substance of Wagner’s polemic against the traditional opera, the woodwinds must be harmonized as closely as possible with the sound of the strings in which they must indeed be wholly merged. Strauss speaks of the ‘cementing’ function of the woodwinds. By imitating the organ, their organlike inflexibility is softened. The models for their mixed sounds are provided on the one hand by the combinations of organ-stops, on the other by the blending, merging possibilities of the string sections.

How do we get an regeneration of counterpoint in the whole music inderstries? i know even WTC tier counterpoint would be a huge overkill for general listeners. but at least 2 part invention level would work.

just forget pop music, it's dead and soulless. In video game music and film music you still can find nice counterpoint. Even Koji Kondo had good ideas, though he probably never learned it formally.
>>
>>111992419
The only music without counterpoint is music where there's only one voice

Why does every harpsichord performer insist on not keeping a steady rythm when playing the C Major prelude of WTC book 1?
Here's the worst example I can find, but they all do this at some bar or another, and it completely ruins the constant flow of the piece:

why does classical music make my brows furrow? is it because i subconsciously see it as a challenge and i'm rising to it? furrowing brows is a sign of aggression is it not? perhaps its beauty captures me so much I must break free? is not a mountain dangerous and beautiful, is not high contrast
the masculine side of beauty? what is the feminine side of beauty? fragility? i have no idea please help.
high dynamic contrast is the mans call to adventure.

>>112001562
I know, most piano performers don't do that. That's why I specified harpsichord.
>>112001849
I don't think the basic of keeping a steady rhythm should be something exclusive to midis lol
Ruzickova plays it fine:

She also alternates between the two keyboards on her double manual harpsichord so that's cool

because it's a technique inherent to harpsichord playing
pianists don't do that because they have other ways of accenting parts of a piece

Coughing/talking/moving thus having your seat creak/cracking fingers/bobbing head should be illegal in concerts
>>
>>112010823
i went to see bruckner 9 live earlier this year and during the scherzo the slightly overweight woman in the seat next to me kept fucking bobbing her head so hard that the entire seat shook. not conducive to an immersive concert experience if you ask me.

>>112010980
yeah bro, being fat should not be allowed in society in general, much less going to a concert.
being fat is a statement of not being able to control/behave oneself, a clear display of lack of discipline, it's evident they'll always find a way to bother actual people.
fuck those cocksucking landwhales.
we should attach retarded people that have a cough and still go to the concert by the feet on to a big device that would move in a fashion so as to use the their bodies as a whip to hit fat asses on the belly

Helps him sell, was unnecessary but I can ignore it fairly well since his plauing was great. A lot of his eccentrics were developed probably as a nervous response

Heres a vid of him without all the humming and the chair, imo his playing here shows that he still wouldve made it big regardless if not even more so:

stop projecting. which do you think is more autistic: to sit there not moving a single fiber of your body, or naturally react to how it's making you feel?
>>112027991
actual retard. don't reply to me ever again
>>
>>112033015
>naturally react to how it's making you feel
That does not imply movement
>>
>>112033052
sure, it's not a strict if-then. "if music good then move body." but it certainly doesn't limit itself to a completely interior experience, either.
however, for fun i'd argue that yes it does actually imply movement. if you let go of the weird connotations that get attached to some music, a vast majority of people move themselves in some way to music (neurotypical, that is). most music is dance music, barring academic music, maybe, which barely qualifies as art, and it's the default state to MOVE somehow to music you find enjoyable. we teach ourselves to stop doing that for a variety of inane social reasons.
basically: i'm gonna keep distracting people like you at concerts and there is absolutely nothing you can do to stop me

>>112040318
They're not my personal favourites but 5 is arguably the most comfortable place to start with Mahler IMO. 4 was the one that got me into him though, while 6 and 7 took a little more time to click. 4, 8, and 9 are probably the ones I go back to most often.

Posting some underappreciated German composers (who got unfairly mogged by other German giants of music) until I go to bed. First one up, good ol' Hanns Leo Haßler and his profane "Tantzen und springen" (1601):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8_dRKo9B6k

And a version with synth voices because why not:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BFHNpaoEK0

Lyrics:
>Tantzen vnd springen, [Dancing and jumping,]
>Singen vnd klingen, [Singing and ringing]
>Fa la la la, fa la la la la fa la.
>Lauten vnd Geigen [Lutes and violins]
>Soll’n auch nicht schweigen, [Shan't be silent either]
>Zu musicieren [To play music]
>Vnd jubilieren [And rejoice]
>Steht mir all mein sinn. [Is all I want.]
>Fa la la etc.

>Schöne Jungfrauen [Beautiful young women]
>In grünen Auen [In green meadows]
>Fa la la etc.
>Mit jn spacieren [To take a stroll with them]
>Vnd conversieren [And talk]
>Freundlich zu schertzen [Cordially joking around]
>Freut mich im hertzen
>Für Silber vnd Gold, [Makes my heart rejoice more than silver and gold.]
>Fa la la etc.

Now we've arrived at Heinrich Schwemmer who is primarily (if at all) remembered as a teacher of "greater" composers like Pachelbel. Being a singer himself it is not too surprising that all of his surviving works are vocal arrangements. One particular moving song is his, quite frankly, incredible "Grabgesang" (Dirge) from 1658:

Guys. I'm learning this composition by Bach, it's the BWV 1002, and it's for solo violin but I play the guitar, you know? But that's not the point. The point is that I'm trying to analyse the composition and there are some measures I just don't know what the hell Bach was doing!

Like, some measures he's playing arpegios so I can analyse that, but then in other measures he goes crazy! He starts like "breaking the rules" and stuff! He starts jumping all over the place, adding notes outside the key and I get confused! I don't what the hell he was doing!

Somewhat he manages to make it work, you know? But I can't understand his logic!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaMoPi9BOoQ

For example. I lerned the third movement called Courante, but I can't make sense of many measures! Like: The first measures I analysed as Bm-F#7-Bm-A7-D-Em7-?-?-?-F#7-Bm-Em7-A7-D7-G-A7-D-?

What should I do? I need help! I need guidance! I want to understand what the hell he was doing! Help me, I beg!

for starters bach never thought about harmony that way. His thinking was pre Rameau. So he was not thinking triads in our normal way but was a result of voice-leading.
>>
>>112046196
the passages in question are filled with NHTs, passing tones, and other approach tones. D# minor, followed by C# minor in a step progression, then the A# is a leading tone thats resolved in a lower voice to the B chord.

You are mean for no reason. I did think because this was a thread about classical music people here would be more mature, polite, but I was wrong. It's more hostile than any other thread that I have commented on. I don't have people to talk about music, my peers are not into it like I'm. I don't know anyone who likes classical and studies music so I asked for help. Big mistake, I should have know better. This is 4chan after all, there's no knowledge here.

I was being sarcastic about you guys helping me out, but I was not being sarcastic when I said God bless.

Anyway, I don't like being insulted for no reason whatsoever. I'm out here.

For me it's the opposite: M1 is a fun work, only the finale is a disaster. M2 remains my favorite. M3 is all over the place but enjoyable, and has a superb last movement. M4 is perhaps his most coherent and has a wonderful slow movement.

But then the trouble begins. Symphonies 5 - 7 somehow sound completely alien to me, I simply do not understand their language. Here Mahler loses me completely.

Only with symphony no. 8 things come back to earth. It's undoubtedly a flawed work, but at least it sounds human. M9 is something of a masterpiece, with stunning outer movements.

I'm no "Mahlerite", but I've been listening to his music for a long time, and I've by now concluded that the middle symphonies are not for me.

Perhaps the best thing he's ever done is "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" from the Rueckert Lieder.

I'm awake again so I guess I might as well cont.

Following Schwemmer is Christian Friedrich Witt. Born in ~1660 to a Danish court organist who had migrated to Germany, he took up the same trade and earned recognition from people such as Telemann. Incidentally, Bach was the one asked to substitute for him when Witt lay in his deathbed and could no longer perform his duties as Frederick II's Kapellmeister.

His eclectic style of music should at least potentially open you up to enjoying the different non-metal genres (breakcore, electronic music, classical, folk/traditional and experimental) that he incorporates into his unique mix. On a side note, does anyone else here think that blast beats or Metal drumming in general compliment classical incredibly well? I mean Igorrr is proof enough but I think it was this music that first tipped me off to this insight:

i really hate the way he writes melodies and flows now (he mentioned in an interview he freestyles his verses now instead of composing them like on eversince so i feel like I have some ground to stand on here). I still think his visual aesthetic, symbolism, and whitearmor production are interesting though.
