Quote:For the most part, I do not go for the Russians, but Rachmaninoff's piano concerti are really good pieces of music.
Quote:Lizst, "Liebestraume" OH. GOD. I luuuuuuuuuuuuurve this song, no matter what horrible memories it brings. Me+Boy who can play this song=LURVE. I don't care if I hate him with the fire of seven hells, if he plays this song I will fall completely and madly in love with him for five minutes. That chromatic run? Chills. Down my spine. Every. Single. Time.
Quote:Pam, was that movie you watched "My Summer of Love?" Cos I watched it too. Loved that version, even if it is a little sharp at times.
Quote:Bach, "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" - this song makes me happy to be a Christian just because of how glorious it sounds when played correctly. It's not just the Josh thing.
Quote:Bach - I don't know many specific works, but I just love his music in general.
Quote: A violist in an orchestra was crying and screaming at the oboe player sitting directly behind him. The conductor asked, "What are you so upset about?"
The violist replied "The oboist reached over and turned one of the pegs on my viola and now it's all out of tune!"
The conductor asked "Don't you think you're overreacting?"
The violist replied "I'm not overreacting! He won't tell me which one!"
Quote: A viola player went to a piano recital. After the performance he went up to the pianist and said, "You know, I particularly liked that piece you played last--the one that started with a long trill."
The pianist said, "Huh? I didn't play any pieces that started with trills."
The viola player said, "You know--[he hums the opening bars of Für Elise.]"

Quote:Bethany, you reminded me of a Bach piece I wanted to rec. But first...your dad has 20 CDs at his office? My dad isn't allowed to take music to work. *shrugs* Maybe it's an engineer thing. But at home, he easily has 100 disks, all classical.

Quote:The purists may cringe, but I like when they put classical music into modern forms. Example: the techno version of "O Fortuna" and the disco version of "Beethoven's 5th Symphony"

Quote:Joanne, are you implying that they're not innocent NOW?
Quote:They may have classical training, but their music is only classical in some of the motifs they choose to do. Otherwise it's all for avid clubbers.

Quote:Have you SEEN Charlotte Church in the past five years? She used to smoke like a chimney [but gave that up... so she's chubbier, but it's healthier not to smoke], she swears like a sailor, and she's quite open about her relationship with her "fella."
Quote:"Liebestraume" is [roughly translated] "love dream" and "Liebeslied" is "love song."
Quote:I just listened to the various Liebestraumes in my Library(from Jane Coop's Romantic Piano and the Romantic Adagios II album and then I found Andrea Bocelli's version, "Sogno d'Amore"..Hmm.I like Andrea but I'd rather hear Richard Clayderman play it...

Quote:Wait. a. sec. Bocelli plays the piano? And Liebestraume, to boot? Dude, hook me up! I wanna hear this! Or is he singing it? (Liebestraume has lyrics?)

Quote:German, right? There's one more. "Liebesfreud". Wanna guess? That's right...."love FREUD!" Who doesn't? Our lovable sexually-repressed madman. J/k. It translates to "love's joy" which is definitely not Freud.
