Classical - Page 7

post #91 of 111

my first attempt into things classical started with this Rachmaninoff cd by Eiji Oue...

since then i have tried to collect of a few more of this conductor's cds. 

his style is very dynamic and exciting to my ears i tot...so i got hooked.

...think i am a conductor follower..lol

My journey into classical music began with these, a beat up old set of Time's Greatest Men of Music. The ones that had the greatest impact on me were (in order) Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky. The Beethoven set has some of my favourite pieces to this day- his 5th symphony, my absolute favourite- his 5th concerto "Emperor", the Egmont overture, moonlight sonata. I guess the best way is just to jump in chest deep and explore.

If you can do vinyl, the Franklin Mint 100 Greatest Recordings of All Time is the one to look for. If you do CDs, get he Living Stereo and Decca Sound boxes. If you do digital downloads, get the Rse of the Masters series at Amazon.

Actually dubstep does require skill. FYI I don't like dubstep that much.

 

Another good one is to get http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phjfaULrfwg is this version of Rhapsody in Blue. If you don't hear the difference then somethings wrong =/

Wow! beautiful collection Xaverian.

 

I suggest go to the theater to experiment it live. Then read on internet things about the composer's life. Finally, buy a good CD or Vynil of that. The classical music is one of the most exciting human art expressions, and it must be understanding from its nature.

Last one thing, to understand every artistic work means a long process of learning. So don't give up on the way.

 

Have a nice day,

I'm actually missing a few of the records in the picture, like Bach and Prokofiev, and some of the records that I do own (namely Beethoven) were terribly scratched when I bought them. But, it still serves me well when I'm tired of HP listening. 

I second seeing live performances, it really helps the music come to life and helps you to understand the nuances of a piece.

Naxos is a record label. ( http://www.naxos.com/ )

I think it is one of the better record label for classical music.

 

Any way, there are some of the famous records labels for that kind of music. They sold their material in their web pages.

 

http://www.naxos.com/

http://www.deutschegrammophon.com/

http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/

 

http://www.sonymasterworks.com/

 

Hyperion has the best collection of music before Baroque.

Oh ok. I have a few recordings from Hyperion but I'd never heard of naxos before. I have a few CDs from EMI, Phillips, Hyperion, Sony how do these compare with naxos? or is it on a CD by CD basis? I've only started getting into classical this past year so I don't know much about composers, record labels, or anything like that.

 

The records are from Time Life and can be found frequently in antique stores. I have 10 in total: Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Debussy, Brahms, Mahler, Berlioz and Haydn.  There's 30 boxes in the set each with 4 LPs. The recordings are all from 1974-1979 and many of them come from the RCA Living Stereo series, which I think I saw mentioned above. This is one of the better reviews I've found about the collection http://hifihipster.com/2010/09/vinyl-review-time-life-great-men-of-music-series/

That set was pressed in Canada and not too well either. Even new they were pretty crackly.
