Quote from: amw on April 07, 2020, 02:59:11 AMI feel like I've answered very similar thread topics in the past.At the moment I would name the slow movement of Mozart's Piano Concerto No.22 & Brahms's Variations on an Original Theme Op.21 no.1.

Quote from: Symphonic Addict on July 16, 2021, 06:34:13 PMInteresting list, Jeffrey. The only work I don't know is the Rootham IIRC.
Quote from: vandermolen on July 17, 2021, 10:22:12 AMWorth hunting down Cesar (Lyrita CD). He completed it just before he died and his student, the loyal Patrick Hadley was there to help him (transcribing what Rootham was telling him). I find the closing sequence unbearably moving:PS I had to look up what 'IIRC' means
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on July 17, 2021, 09:10:45 PMIt must be a quite poignant work, Jeffrey. I'll make sure to give it a listen in this week.Haha sorry for that word (if I remember correctly).
Quote from: krummholz on July 18, 2021, 09:51:53 AMIn no particular order:Beethoven: Op. 132 Slow movement "Heiliger Dankgesang"Mahler: "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen"Mahler: Symphony #3 Adagio, Symphony #9 Adagio (Finale), Symphony #10 Finale (Coda especially), Symphony #6 AndanteVaughan Williams: Symphony #5 3rd movement (Lento?)Schoenberg: String Quartet #2 (Ich fuhle Luft von anderem Planeten)Pettersson: Symphony #7 (long hymnlike passage about 2/3 of the way through)I'm sure others will come to me...
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on July 18, 2021, 10:01:55 AMMust admit, I need to check out Mahler better. Will look to see what all I might have of his (hidden in those sets) and explore further. Schoenberg I have a little of (will dig again). Pettersson I've heard of but don't know at all. Would you say that his seventh is a good place to dive in?PD
Quote from: krummholz on July 18, 2021, 11:23:58 AMYes! It is certainly the best known and most popular of his symphonies, and the one that really put him on the map, so to speak. I am not otherwise a huge Pettersson fan - much of his music seems static to me, and too long-winded to boot. But I love the 3rd and the 7th, and found the 6th engaging the last time I listened to it (Alun Francis reading I believe). He definitely is worth delving into if you can stomach hour-long angst-ridden confessionals composed in an astringent but very tonal idiom.
Quote from: André on July 18, 2021, 12:00:02 PMThis sounds like a pharmaceutical warning notice about possible side effects . Personally I don't find Pettersson's music to be static at all. There is a dark but powerful undercurrent that runs beneath the surface, like lava flowing under the cracks of a thick black crust.
