Quote from: EigenUser on June 30, 2014, 01:39:40 AMIs there anything Webern composed that is as frightening and powerful as the end of the 4th piece from "Six Pieces for Orchestra"?
Quote from: karlhenning on August 08, 2014, 04:52:19 AMWell, you've got to hope that there is more on that CD than just the Op.21 . . . .
Quote from: Archaic Torso of Apollo on June 30, 2014, 03:02:59 PMI find the Op. 1 Passacaglia extraordinarily gripping and disturbing. It's like a late Mahler symphony condensed into 10 minutes.
Quote from: α | ì Æ ñ on August 11, 2017, 11:30:03 PMCall it what you will but I think Webern's Op 9 & 10 are the two most important early 20th century works. More important that The Rite of spring, Jeux or Schoenberg's Five Pieces for Orchestra.

Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on August 12, 2017, 03:02:02 AMWell? And what makes the Webern more important than these landmarks in the literature? You should know that the discussion is always more interesting than the assertion (because, you know, the assertion may just be dead wrong) (Fixed a typo.)
Quote from: α | ì Æ ñ on August 12, 2017, 08:55:33 PMUnlike Stravinsky and Schoenberg, Webern really doesn't sound like the music of his time to me, there's just really something off about his innovations. It really doesn't sound like music someone (even an innovative composer) would write in 1910, you feelin' me?
Quote from: α | ì Æ ñ on August 12, 2017, 08:51:21 PMI listened to Op 10 on loop for over an hour on loop this morning without realizing it. One of the many amazing things about Webern, is that if you pay different levels of attention to the same piece, it sounds like another piece :laugh:
Quote from: α | ì Æ ñ on August 27, 2017, 12:59:57 AMSweet, what are your thoughts?
QuoteIf I was trapped in a lift with Diamanda Galas, I don't think I'd ever leave :laugh:
Quote from: α | ì Æ ñ on August 27, 2017, 01:02:30 AMI've seen people praising unpublished/non-opus works like "Im Sommerwind" but to be completely honest, if it's a Webern work without an opus number, then I don't care about it. Those early primarily romantic works are just not the Webern I love
Quote from: nodogen on August 27, 2017, 12:23:32 AM21 is on that CD, that's all I have. You'll not be surprised that I'll be avoiding the Lieder. I just checked some out on YouTube and TBH it was more terrifying than being trapped in a lift with Diamanda Galas. 🙀

Quote from: Mahlerian on August 27, 2017, 08:33:11 AMI do remember that performance, but don't remember how good it was. Fair enough.
