Quote from: Mirror Image on May 27, 2020, 10:52:26 AMDoesn't really matter if all he'll do is compare him to Elgar.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on May 27, 2020, 10:57:52 AMA piece of advice to 71dB: listen to more music apart from Elgar and Nielsen. It's rather unfair and unprecise to reduce everything to Elgar.
Quote from: 71 dB on May 27, 2020, 11:03:41 AMI haven't listened to Elgar or Nielsen much lately as I have been exploring other composers (Weinberg, Englund, Petterson, Atterberg...). That said, it not your business what I listen to.
Quote from: Baron Scarpia on May 27, 2020, 11:35:38 AMAnd how is it "unfair?"
Quote from: Mirror Image on May 27, 2020, 11:08:26 AMI don't think Cesar meant any harm in what he was suggesting, 71 dB. Stop being so sensitive.
Quote from: 71 dB on May 27, 2020, 11:47:46 AMIn late 90's when I got into classical music I did not have internet connection home and when I got internet connection I didn't join online discussion boards until around 2004. I had much more time to explore music and also I didn't have to argue about everything with strangers online. I just had my opinions, impressions, delusions and what not and nobody argued against them. In that sense I miss those old times......to fans of Atterberg: I could have chosen to NOT explore Atterberg at all, but I did chose to explore his music. How long did it take you to really get into his music? 10 seconds? 10 minutes? 10 hours? I have listened to 3 symphonies together about 2 hours worth of music. I have seen people mention here it took them years to warm up to Elgar and I am supposed to become a hardcore Atterbergian in 3 days? Come on...Just enjoy my silly impressions of his music as a total newbie who understands hardly 10 % of his art.

Quote from: Baron Scarpia on May 27, 2020, 12:04:36 PMI'm not picking a fight, just tired of the antagonism shown towards 71 dB. If he finds Atterberg uninspired, so be it. I enjoyed listening to the Atterberg cycle on cpo years ago, but I see no need to take offense if someone has the opposite reaction.
Quote from: Mirror Image on May 27, 2020, 12:08:13 PMI'm with you. It doesn't bother if he has negative reactions to the music, but just got through saying, in a nutshell, that we should be grateful he's listening to the music in the first-place. I don't agree with this kind of mentality, especially given my own history with this music.
Quote from: Baron Scarpia on May 27, 2020, 12:13:18 PMHe described his reaction to the some music he was listening to and you replied with a personal insult, that he was childish. That is contrary to the spirt, and the rules, of the board.
Quote from: Mirror Image on May 27, 2020, 11:57:58 AMHis music is there to discover or not. You act like you're doing us a favor by listening to his music. Like we're all supposed to pat you on the back for trying. I'm glad you're listening to the music, but I'm not going to kiss your butt just because you are.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on May 27, 2020, 01:43:23 PMUnfair because he gives the impression that everything has to sound like Elgar. If not, it's not good.
