Quote from: Ciel_Rouge on August 06, 2008, 03:32:12 PM...Perhaps I have sometimes come close to it while listening to Holst and Sibelius, but I guess this is still a long way to go...
Quote from: Ciel_Rouge on August 25, 2008, 11:14:40 AMContinuing the subject of the organ and my way to appreciating atonal music, I learned today that Scriabin composed his Prometheus: The Poem of Fire for a so called colour organ. I listened to the piece on YouTube and I actually like it. I also like Le Banquet Celeste by Messiaen. How would you evaluate my progress in atonality? Is there any hope?
Quote from: jochanaan on August 25, 2008, 02:23:16 PMI don't know Le Banquet Celeste, but if it's like other Messian, it's pretty radical. And Prometheus is definitely "advanced" harmony. But neither piece is atonal by strict definitions, so you still have a way to go. Still, I wouldn't worry. A lot of fine, sensitive, intelligent music fans can't deal with full atonality.
