|My fav classic composer is Amadeus Mozart, an absolute genius that was completely ahead of its time.|
Ludwig Van Beethoven is close second.
Some classic stuff I like:
Symphonie 25 and 40 - First movement, Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Piano Concerto No. 21
Ludwig Van Beethoven
Symphony #5, Moonlight Sonata (work of genius), Symphony #9 (Ode To Joy)
But I'm not an expert so I believe this choices are also basic.
By the way cool list dude.
|and of course Carl Orff's unbelievable masterpiece Carmina Burana|
Probably the best classic composition of the last century
|Am currently digging Nils Frahm, Ludovico Einaudi and as usual Kashiwa Daisuke. Edit: And also
revisiting a lot of Steve Reich's stuff lately.
|Speaking of Beethoven String trios are all universally superb, the C Minor in particular, it's
awesomely fun to play. His 14th quartet is stunningly beautiful also.
Any other cellists here?|
|been listening to a lot of debussy's solo piano works recently, and they're amazing, so much to dissect, but relatively easy to digest. which is awesome because he was definitely breaking new ground.|
|on a more modern note, went to see Steve Reich's 'Music For 18 Musicians' performed live, in full, a few months back. It was unbelievably good, honestly|
|"Am currently digging Ludovico Einaudi, Kashiwa Daisuke and Igor Stravinsky. "
Daisuke's not really classical, unless you're talking about his newest album. Everyone who hasn't yet
should look into Henryk Gorecki's Symphony of Sorrowful Songs and Arvo Part's Tabula Rasa.|
|@jefflebowski, I don't think you need to convince us of your honesty there, would undoubtedly be awesome.|
For Nils Frahm fans:
