Quote from: Corey on January 20, 2010, 09:52:49 AMIs it repetition that makes pop "pop"? Haydn is pretty repetitious, but one would be hard-pressed to call his music "pop". And there is quite a bit of Feldman that is very un-calming — for instance his Durations pieces or the String Quartet (1979). From my understanding, whenever classical music approaches Windham Hill, the difference is the fact that the former is notated, while the latter is not.
Quote from: Beethovenian on January 20, 2010, 09:36:18 AMFeldman is repetitious like pop music and calming like new age; what makes him"classical"?
Quote from: Beethovenian on January 20, 2010, 10:13:28 AMIn my experience, one of the main complaints about pop music is that it's too repetitious.
Quote from: Beethovenian on January 20, 2010, 10:19:27 AMAnd simplicity. I mean, is this stuff hard to play? Maybe it requires endurance, but otherwise...
Quote from: Corey on January 20, 2010, 01:39:58 PMThe simplicity is deceiving as Luke and others here have mentioned. From what I've heard, Feldman's notation is famously precise. I can't yet read music, so I couldn't say.
Quote from: DavidW on October 19, 2010, 05:54:07 PMSo for a newbie, is Coptic Light the way to go? I see that it appeared often in the favorites list, or would you rec something else?
Quote from: Mirror Image on October 19, 2010, 07:12:23 PMSince Takemitsu has been flying under my radar lately, I would like to get into some of Feldman's music, but I'm not really sure where to start. Since I'm more of a fan of orchestral music, can anybody give me some recommendations? Thanks!
Quote from: ChamberNut on October 19, 2010, 03:36:20 PMOK. Well, I had my first exposure to Feldman, as I listened to his Piano & String Quartet (Kronos Quartet recording). I wasn't enthused, to be honest. It wasn't a, shall we say, barnstorming first listen.I found the work to be a little too 'pianissimo'. I guess I had a different expectation.Oh well, I reserve judgment on Feldman until further listening.For now, however, I think I may hold off on listening to his 5-hour string quartet.
