Quote from: André on June 25, 2022, 10:53:04 AMI'm wary of PI in Schubert, not so much on account of the sound of the instruments, but the balance btw sections, as these bands often have a small string section with meagre tone. It just doesn't work for me in Schubert.
Quote from: DavidW on June 25, 2022, 11:30:40 AMMost of it is not even available to stream too, I looked. Andre has great recs and I also like Suitner's Dvorak so it seemed worth a listen.

Quote from: KlassiskDronning on July 14, 2022, 11:56:02 PMThat's cool. I am just making my own thread so everyone can read it now and answer my questions😉
Quote from: KlassiskDronning on July 14, 2022, 10:17:47 PM1.What do you think of his music style? 2.What did he actually look like and do you think he was cute?3.What was his personality like? Was he approachable?I really love and relate the most to him out of any composers. Because of his whole combination of traditional classical and Romanticism, he was the most inspirational and creative to me.And from the portraits I have seen, his cute, boyish face, messy black hair, black clothing with his flawless and soft pale complexion I find him as perhaps the most attractive composer as well.As far as his personality goes, I have heard he was quiet and mysterious guy which is also compelling to me.He's actually my favourite with Beethoven as close second. Maybe Bach would be next....
QuoteTo understand Schubert's compositional choices, let's return to the original poem. What is the text really about? There is strong evidence that the poem is describing the rape of a child—from the perspective of the perpetrator.
Quote from: Mandryka on July 15, 2022, 05:19:17 AMI hope it won't put you off when I point out that one famous modern composer, Georg Friedrich Haas, thinks that Schubert was a perv. See what you think of this https://van-magazine.com/mag/schubert-erlkonig/
Quote from: Florestan on July 15, 2022, 08:25:37 AM Btw, he is so famous that I've never heard of him before.
Quote from: Mandryka on July 15, 2022, 08:38:15 AMSimon Rattle helped propel him into stardom by commenting that his ensemble piece In Vain is "one of the only already acknowledged masterpieces of the 21st century" because Rattle's comment is horribly terrible English grammar. His music seems to me rather in the spirit of your compatriot Horatiu Radulescu. (Ooh, my iPad won't do that splendid diacritical under the t that you put in Horatiu.)

Quote from: Mandryka on July 15, 2022, 08:44:39 AMNo way! You already made me a laughing stock with my Romanian friends when I tried to say that poem with no consonants about sheep (which they thought was very well made, clever!)
Quote from: VonStupp on July 15, 2022, 04:12:30 AMA portly, five-foot tall man nicknamed 'Schwammerl', who died at age 31 of syphilitic-related maladies, contracted some 6 years earlier, and was keen to break crockery whilst imbibing, would not lay in the category of attractive for me.But, there is someone for everyone, I suppose.

Quote from: Florestan on July 15, 2022, 08:25:37 AMSeems to me that the only pervert here is Mr. Haas himself. Btw, he is so famous that I've never heard of him before.
Quote from: KlassiskDronning on July 15, 2022, 11:46:27 AMI am actually 5"2 (160cm) and just over 200 pounds. I'm even bigger, but most guys do admit I am pretty.I also think it is kinda messed up you would hate him just because of a common condition back in the 1800s. I just see a little contempt here. But whatever. None of that stuff doesn't mean he wasn't hot. You can stick to your plastic boyz, G.
