Quote from: Rosalba on September 13, 2017, 12:38:51 AM'Great contrast' - absolutely right! Thanks for suggesting this list, α | ì Æ ñ.It was very interesting to listen, and I'm glad to have done so, but to be honest, this sort of music turns out not to be my cup of tea. I enjoyed and quite liked the Webern - was bored by the Bartok - could hardly stand listening to the Stockhausen - and admired the clever artistry of the Xenakis, Ligeti and Penderecki, but didn't enjoy the uneasiness they induced in me. It all helps to give me a 'mind-map' of classical music - where it's been, and where it's going. Thanks again!

Quote from: Rosalba on April 27, 2022, 05:58:02 AMAha - have located this thread of mine from when I joined GMG. I'm rather sad to see that some of the contributors have left the site or else been inactive for some years. I hope they are okay. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~What would I put on here if I were to give myself advice? The list, remember, is to prevent one being shown up by not knowing the famous pieces, so of course, they're all very well known. Mine are more than well-known, and they don't go beyond the nineteenth century, so my thanks to those above who recommended modern works in particular. 1. Monteverdi, Vespers2. Purcell, Dido and Aeneas3. Vivaldi, The Four Seasons4. Handel, Messiah5. Bach, Brandenburg Concerto no. 56. Mozart, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik7. Beethoven's Fifth Symphony8. Schubert: Trout Quintet9. Tchaikovsky, 1812 Overture10. Liszt, Hungarian Rhapsody11. Grieg, Peer Gynt12. Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 "From the New World"
Quote from: LKB on April 27, 2022, 07:24:14 AMSolid list, my compliments. For what it's worth, Overture 1812 was my father's choice to indoctrinate my brother and l into the world of orchestral music, upon the reasonable premise that most young boys like it when things explode. :laugh:
