I would have to say the 70s...there were so many unknown artist and bands that even to this day, I am still discovering them.

Yeah, this decade is one of the best. But not in mainstream music.

Also, live musical performance was everywhere... in movie theaters, in the nightclubs, in the streets... The more you know about the history of popular music in America, the more you realize we jumped the shark before the Beatles ever set foot on US soil.

 

I think the 1930s might be the best decade as well.

 

In that decade a great deal happens in classical music that is of interest to me. I have a love of the impressionists and Debussy and Ravel in France were producing some of their best work.

 

I think that in 1913 Stravinsky's Right of Spring created a huge change in musical culture and by the 30s this change was resonating throughout the world, in all the genres of classical and in other music forms.

 

I agree with you that in the US you redefined popular music in the 1930s more than in any other decade and those new forms of popular music subsequently took the world by storm.

The decade of  the 1730's is the best.

 

The Baroque style is reaching its apogee with J. S. Bach and G. F. Handel at their peak and the first signs of an emerging new trend are manifesting themselves on the opera stages of Italy which would in a few years mature into the Classical style of Haydn and Mozart.

I agree with the rite of spring era... Stravinsky and the birth of modernism along with the jazz movement in the usa. On top of this the french were on top form ravel and debussy etc

ravels la valse. One of the greatest works of all time?

I certainly love La Valse and many other Ravel pieces.

 

I think Ravel is not given as much credit as he is due.

Birth of modernism started with Gustav Mahler..who was greater then Debussy and Ravel together..

How did I ever forget Gustav??? Um but no. Mahler was a late-romantic. Far from modernist tendencies although his compositions did have some revolutionary repercussions down the generations.

I disagree, Mahler's Ninth Symphony which had enormous impact on Alban Berg and Arnold Schoenberg, was most definitely not late-romantic ..

 

 

Maybe we can agree Mahler was a transitional figure ( he was very aware of his place in musical history) since he stood between late romanticism and moderism ( Brahm-Schoenberg)..

Transitional agreed! Shame I dislike Berg, Schoeberg and Webern the Serialist lot...

 

What's your favourite symphony or nies by Mahler?
