Quote from: Sergeant Rock on September 30, 2014, 03:57:18 AMIt's amusing that we're debating what the OP meant by aggressive; amusing that we continue to recommend music. Does it matter anymore? Did it ever matter? He/she hasn't been back to the forum in three months. Last active, 1 July, the day he arrived Sarge
Quote from: Peter Power Pop on September 30, 2014, 05:37:07 AMI thought we were all just enjoying the conversation, despite the absence of the original poster. It's like being at a party, and the host stepped out for a while.Plus, there's the possibility that I had no idea the first post was three months ago.(You might want to replace that "possibility" with "fact".)
Quote from: karlhenning on September 30, 2014, 02:15:00 AMThat's true. The present question, though, is more that there is no one "folder," if you will, of classical music which will be The Ideal Entrée for all listeners. For some, a Mozart symphony, for others, a Tallis motet, for others still, Pierrot Lunaire.
Quote from: Mirror Image on September 30, 2014, 06:59:45 AMYep, so whatever strikes this listener's fancy will be a success and hopefully a bridge into exploring more music.
Quote from: TheGSMoeller on September 30, 2014, 07:05:11 AMDon't be so aggressive, John.
Quote from: karlhenning on September 30, 2014, 07:20:29 AMThe audacity of hope!
Quote from: Mirror Image on January 13, 2014, 10:51:51 AMI think Holten's performances are hit/miss for many people...I wouldn't call his performance of Eventyr earth-shattering, but he does seem to understand the aggression that lays beneath the surface of the work. His trolls are LOUD!
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on September 30, 2014, 07:39:21 AMJohn, I'm surprised you didn't recommend Eventyr Sarge
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on September 30, 2014, 05:53:29 AMThis happens quite often. Newbies who ask a question and then, for whatever reason, are never heard from again. You are right, of course: the party continues, as it should. Who knows, he/she may return...and be utterly bewildered by the range of recommendations
QuoteApropos Power Pop: are you a Blondie fan?Sarge
Quote from: Peter Power Pop on September 30, 2014, 03:06:05 PMAh well. Maybe they had other forums* to attend to.Yes indeed. Parallel Lines is one of my all-time favourite power pop albums.(*Or is that "fora"?)

Quote from: Cato on September 30, 2014, 03:26:50 AMAggressive? Spiritually aggressive? Physically aggressive?For the latter, Arvo Paert's Third Symphony (I believe) has a section where the musicians argue. Also try: Cesar Franck's Le Chasseur Maudit (The Wild Huntsman)For both senses: the 8 symphonies of Karl Amadeus Hartmann, the 6 organ symphonies of Louis Vierne, and of course the works of Anton Bruckner, Gustav Mahler, and Arnold Schoenberg.
Quote from: Marc on October 06, 2014, 09:03:11 AMBach's Praeludium und Fugue b-moll BWV 544, here played In Cold Blood (the way I like it) by Connie Hensley Golden: http://www.youtube.com/v/K_U3LEsyQc8
Quote from: (: premont :) on October 06, 2014, 10:39:51 AMNo need to deny her dexterity, but if we listen to her rather stiff style, there is not much which distinguish it from etwa Karl Richter´s style, except that she does not change stops that often.
Quote from: karlhenning on September 29, 2014, 06:59:50 AMYes. There's no one way which is right for all listeners.
