Quote from: Madiel on June 07, 2022, 04:30:52 AMYou expect change in a year?I'm so boring. I don't expect all that much change in a decade.
Quote from: foxandpeng on June 07, 2022, 07:56:39 AMAh, but I am so much less knowledgeable than your good self. I have further to go in my journey, I feel, and my exposure to new and fascinating new (to me) works/composers constantly throws up fresh contenders for my top 10, 20, 50, 100, etc... Messrs Tabakov and Vasks, for example, were unknown to me before the last 2 years and command a pretty unassailable place in my affections for now, at least. I am hoping for a good while longer so that all of this top ten can be replaced by even more freshly discovered, incredible and even newly appreciated composers

Quote from: joachim on March 11, 2023, 08:06:38 AMFor me :...Raff
QuotePardon, but who is Raff ?
Quote from: joachim on March 11, 2023, 08:58:51 AMIn 1845, Raff met Franz Liszt who invited him to Germany. He became his private secretary from 1850 to 1856.
Quote from: joachim on March 11, 2023, 08:58:51 AMHis style is somewhat reminiscent of Liszt, whose pupil he was
Quote from: joachim on March 11, 2023, 08:58:51 AMI admit that I was a little expecting this question! Joseph Joachim Raff was a German-Swiss composer, born in 1822 in Lachen and died in 1882 in Frankfurt am Main.In 1845, Raff met Franz Liszt who invited him to Germany. He became his private secretary from 1850 to 1856.He composed many works: 214 opus numbers plus a hundred WoO, among which 11 very beautiful symphonies, in particular: n° 1 An das Vaterland, n° 5 "Lenore" (from the poem de Bürger), n° 7 "An den Alpen", and n° 8 to 11, the Four Seasons.His style is somewhat reminiscent of Liszt, whose pupil he was, and also Mendelssohn, Brahms and Schumann.I chose my nickname Joachim in his homage.
Quote from: Florestan on March 11, 2023, 09:09:44 AMRumor has it that Raff was actually heavily involved in the orchestration of Liszt's tone poems. Or rather the other way around when it came to orchestration.
