Quote from: Cato on May 02, 2016, 06:33:20 AMUnless I see the musicians crowded into closets and a dining room and in kitchen hallways, and hear the synthesizers being beaten, I will not believe.https://www.youtube.com/v/f1CPFf1luOgThis reminds of the Wonder Automobile Company, whose slogan was:"If it runs, it's a Wonder!" 0:)
Quote from: (poco) Sforzando on May 02, 2016, 06:59:58 AMI lasted about 45 seconds. It's too derivative of symphony #238.
Quote from: snyprrr on May 02, 2016, 06:39:58 AMI saw that the other day... jaw still on floor...If he's so "genius", perfect pitch/rhythm- then why does he write amorphous stuff?? Is it to ease his hyper-precision?

Quote from: Brian on May 02, 2016, 04:27:17 AMA comment from BIS Records founder/CEO Robert von Bahr:"Segerstam is presumably the greatest musical genius I will ever come across: he reads a score - ANY score - better than I read a Swedish daily. He has perfect pitch down to the tiniest degree and perfect rhythm as well - wake him up in the middle of the night and ask for tempo 167 and it comes. He has the unbeatable record of composed symphonies, pushing towards 300 now (which is about his IQ as well)."
Quote from: Cato on May 02, 2016, 10:32:11 AMI suspect that the Symphony #237 and everything composed after Symphony #97 1/2 may well be a non-analgesic deconstruction of Snorri Sturluson's Heimskringla combined with that famous folk-song Did Someone Call Me Schnorrer?.Hence the pain! An early work: compare the two!https://www.youtube.com/v/KKqRxgarjdc
Quote from: Rons_talking on May 02, 2016, 09:51:03 PM......But credentials don't make the music. How many Boulez recordings and writings are there where there is not a reference to his great ear, uncanny rhythm and mathmatical training? ...
Quote from: ritter on May 03, 2016, 07:31:27 AM The answer to your question is quite easy: a whole lot of--excellent--recordings by Boulez don't make any reference to those qualities you mention...What Boulez (a notoriously self-critical composer, whose complete works fit on less than 13 CDs ) has to do in the discussion of Mr. Segerstams's 151st (!!!) symphony, beats me
Quote from: PerfectWagnerite on May 03, 2016, 09:13:43 AMIs that 151 symphonies or 1 symphony written 151 times?
Quote from: ritter on May 03, 2016, 09:18:09 AMI'm in no position to answer that question, I'm afarid, as I must confess I have neither the time nor the inclination to listen to them all...
