New to this thread and new to Classical music.  

 

I don't care to much for the slow love song type of classical.  I like the upbeat style that puts a strain on the amp.  So far I like the 2Cellos.  Any other recommendations?  I would love to hear this type in a big Symphony Orchestra setting - or Cello Concertos..

Hey D, good to see you here. 

 

Two of the most famous Cello concertos are Dvorak and Elgar's. Maybe try these and see how you get on :)

 

These two below would be my recommendations for newcomers based on classic performance and SQ.

Hmmn Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring was my normal go to recommendation in introducing classical music to my friends. Blew my socks off when I first heard it.

 

1947 version

 

But I think you appreciate the piece more as the whole ballet work.

 

1913 version

 

Supposedly the audience at the 1913 premiere went apesh*t. Looking and hearing it now ... you can still kinda see why... I find it haunting, creepy, Loud and mesmerising all at once. Love it!

 

 

 

Other interpretations of dance can be found on youtube

 

http://youtu.be/sHO8hwyZM6Q (WARNING: nudity) I posted the link rather than the video - due to some explicit scenes. Hopefully the moderators will warn me if they want me to take the link down.

 

Millicent Hodgson and Pina Bausch's interpretations of certain sections of the piece are my favourite.
