I recently started to listen to classical music music after watching TwoSet. Paganini Caprice 24 has become my favorite piece so far, and I told my friend about it...

Anyone else not SUPER well versed in classical music/music theory but still enjoys the memes?

I did trumpet in school from grade 6-10 (so like age 11-15) and did piano lessons for two years in that time frame. So I have like a very basic understanding of most of the stuff but I still enjoy and get a laugh out of almost everything πŸ˜…

Idk anyone else like me and have either basic music knowledge or even no music knowledge and still enjoy the bois?

Are There any ways to listen to live, concert/orchestral (or even individual classical music) music for free? e.g. Do orchestras need people in the audience when rehearsing?

This probably sounds like a really odd request but I've recently started to listen to a lot of classical music on the radio and I like it so much that I hardly ever listen to other music now. I'm a student, plus have other priorities so I wouldn't consider spending money to go to a concert but I'm wondering if there is another way around this...

Should have included i live in Christchurch New Zealand

Breezy classical music/music infused with the sounds of 'Italia'

I was wondering if anyone could kindly point me out to music that is light and breezy,and that calls to mind feelings of the sea, Italy in the summer, slow afternoons (etc. etc.).

For example Mad Rush by Philip Glass:

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

Or this piece by Ravel that recently featured in the film Call Me by your Name (Ravel):

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

Or this piece that featured in the Talented Mr Ripley (Gabriel Yared):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=982ElbfsvRs

I listen to all of the above endlessly, as well as a few other pieces, and wonder if there was a style of music that accurately describes the nature of this type of sound, or if there was a body of work/a composer people could point me to!

Thank you in advance,

Otto

[TOMT][Classical music]Music sample from Simpsons episode S27E21

The simpsons episode that aired earlier this week has a sample from a classical song which I've been looking for for a while a now. Vocaroo link: http://vocaroo.com/i/s0mKiLHbWCay There's some random noise throughout which is part of the episode, but it should be pretty clear what I mean.

It's not credited on their wiki or IMDB (yet) so I'm hoping anybody can give me a hand here.

[TOMT][Classical Music] Musical piece containing multiple endings strung together

I have distinct memories of a piece of music, performed by a symphony orchestra, containing one famous classical music ending followed by another and another and another. This goes on for at several minutes and each piece feels like the final one. I cannot remember if this was something I encountered on CD or on the internet.

Is popular consumption of classical music driven by its perceived cultural value?

I enjoy classical music, music in the orchestral idiom, what have you. However, I've always been aware of the cultural load it carries, most notably whenever I mention in conversation either that I'm into the "genre" or that I perform classical music.

It's undeniable that people attach a high cultural value to classical music--that consumption of it is indicative of "good taste". This has always bothered me, as I feel that it's impossible to separate music written for orchestra from class and wealth.

I want to believe that orchestral music is important not only for its historical and cultural significance, but by its own merit as generally informative and exciting music.

Overlooking the fact that vast majority of 'classical music' was commissioned and written for wealthy people, I wonder, what role does classical music have in a capitalist society? Do the vast majority of people that go to see NYPhil/SFO/LAPhil/etc (ignoring Europe, as the culture is very different when it comes to orchestral music) do so in order to acquire culture? Whenever I go to shows of these popular orchestras, I often suspect that the answer is yes.

Does that mean that orchestral music is just some sort of historical artifact, consumed primarily for its cultural capital? I don't want to sound too "end of history-ish", but I feel like there is a disjointness between "classical music" and contemporary music written in the orchestral idiom, in that the latter lacks (for better or for worse) the cultural associations of the former.

Would people in 100 years go see Elliott Carter or Steve Reich shows?

Obviously people like what they like--that doesn't bother me and I'm not complaining that classical music is not popular enough, these were just some thoughts that I wanted to discuss in a friendly place.

Anyone interested in a classical music Skype Group for young adults?

I'm mostly looking for the age range of 15-20, preferably high school age.

I'm looking to start a Skype-group for likeminded individuals-People who are interested in classical music, music history, and especially people who play instruments, compose, etc.

I'm a high schooler who is going to study music as a performance major this coming Fall, and it would be nice to have other musicians to talk to in the meantime.

PM me if you're interested. Thanks!

What are your unpopular opinions about classical music?

Is there a popular composer you don't like? Is there a great concerto you think is boring? Are you glad Brahms only wrote 4 symphonies?

I think mine would be that Mozart 25 is more enjoyable than Mozart 40, let me know yours.

My gf (28f) agreed to attend a symphony with me (24m), but has no prior experience/interest in classical music. How should I help her enjoy it?

For reference, the program consists of Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto and Elgar's Symphony no. 1 - both absolutely wonderful compositions. Out of a combination of humouring me and trying to experience what I like doing together with me my partner's decided to come along. However, she's never really listened to classical (excluding public domain stuff you hear everywhere) nor played an instrument, so it's completely new territory for her. I'm classically trained in piano so I ended up developing a natural appreciation for it, though I don't know how to pass it on to her.

This will be her first classical concert, but I don't really know how to help her best enjoy it - I know when I went as a teenager with no interest I just found the whole thing boring and a waste of time, and the last thing I'd want would be for her the feel like she's only going for my sake. I could teach her the backstory behind these pieces and hope that adds a bit, but I don't think she'd absorb anything if I talked about overarching themes and music theory. This isn't program music either, so I can't really tell her anything about what to think about while listening. Any ideas?

EDIT: God damn y'all are great lol. Thanks for the advice! The concert isn't for another few months, and the main reason I'm going is for the Rach performance anyway. If she doesn't feel like staying I'm fine with leaving with her in the intermission.

It seems like opinion is split between exposing her to a lot before the performance and just leaving her be and letting her decide for herself if she likes it. I'll probably just tell her what makes me so interested in this concert and leave her be. Thank you all!

Did anyone else go from thinking Classical Music was the most boring thing in the world, to being completely obsessed?

This is what’s happened to me. I’ve been consumed by Beethoven and Brahms the past couple weeks.

Let me hear your classical music hot takes!

you can put list as many as you like. I’ll start us off,

  1. Eduard Strauss wrote the best waltzes out of the three brothers.

  2. Mozart’s symphonies are utterly boring. Still beautiful in small doses though.

  3. Soloists should compose their own cadenzas. Nuff said.
