Oooh - a flame war, on a thread of mine!? I can only dream of such activity! Keep on trying, please!

Maybe if you mentioned Mahler more often... ::) 0:)

Flame war, here? Impossible.

Though I mention in passing that I consider Luke a finer composer overall than Elgar  8)

Almost there but not yet.

I'd hold fire on making any judgements until you see my clarinet writing....

That's more like it! [rubbing wands together and warming them on the flames.... of the burning manuscript of Mahler 10 I just discovered in the garage >:D]

Yes, that unexpected forty minute long central movement looked like a bit of a bore...

OK, hopefully this will work: Wagner is an even worse composer than Beethoven - Its all just aural wanking to my ears.

LOL! Now I'm picking myself off the floor. :D













Because, frankly, how could there ever be a composer worse than Beethoven? ;D

That tactic might work, Guido, but only once Sean comes over here. It's precisely the discussion we've had more than once before, of course, though not perhaps in such fruity terms. ;D




Edit - just saw that, Maciek - LOLOL!

Tonality: the resort of pathetic lowest common denominator idiots who just hate thinking, and composers that use tonality are complete sell outs and hate art. There were no great composers before Schoenberg.

(Wow its so much easier writing conceited toss than thinking hard about things. Maybe I should do this for a living and become a music critic! I'm not far off as it is!)

Come off it Guido, who are you, Casanova reincarnate?

And the big W is masculinity in music as never thought possible...

Tchah!  Only girlie-men wear silken underthings.

W's type of masculinity is the Village People singing "Macho Man."

Karl, Wagner would have had the Rheinmadens swimming in your blood before making for his next feminine conquest...

Conquest of the corset shop. A bloodthirsty transvestite is still a transvestite. Talking of which, there have never been, nor will there ever be a great female composer because women lack the obsessional mindset required to reach artistic perfection. Also they lack any real sense of creativity.

Tristan and Isolde is about love! Love for Christ's sake!! If he were manly it would be about cars and war and strippers.

Careful, Guido! I think I sense a libretto commission coming your way...
