Quote:Arianne - how ironic. I was listening to his Funeral March last night. Part of his Sonata #2, right? I've got the Emmanuel Ax version. I swear everything this man writes turns to gold. The concerto is lovely, though I prefer his shorter nocturnes, waltzes, and mazurkas. Is there any particular nocturne you like?

Quote:"All By Myself" - I forget who sang this - Todd Rundgren? Hmm, doesn't sound right. But this is from a famous classical piece - now, if I can just recall which one... Was it Rachmaninoff? Someone, help me out here!
Quote:I am a big fan of 2 short Operas that are usually performed together; Cavelleria Rusticana (featured in the Godfather movies) and I Pagliacci
Quote:I don't like all the histrionics with opera. (I am so green here so please forgive my ignorance!) I mean the prancing about on stage, all the over acting etc, but some of the arias are lovely. One Fine Day always breaks my heart.
Quote:I would recommend Puccini's La Boheme for starters.
Quote:E Lucevan Le Stelle (Tosca, I think - have you heard Mario Frangoulis sing it with his own composition "Sometimes I Dream" - Ai chihuahua)!
Quote:are there any contemporary classical music lovers out there? I personally find some of it hard to listen to, so I was curious!
Quote:Britten's "She Walked In Beauty" - we sang in choir - quiet and lovely
Quote:Shostakovich is big this year since it's some anniversary/birthday or something. Is he considered modern classical?
