Classical music recommendations - Page 2

post #16 of 20

How about some warm and fuzzy stuff from the romantic era? 

Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto 2 op 18. Moderato Allegro  (my absolute favorite), and Tchaikovsky's Violin Concert in D major

 

I also find Haydn's Cello Concertos pretty juicy and so sweet

Well, I guess in the sense Wagner wrote a lot of other music, too.
It's an introduction to being addicted to Wagnerian opera and having to hear all the recordings, yes. I estimate that 15% of my CD collection is made of the ten "canon" operas (Flying Dutchman to Parsifal). I was addicted to this music for two years - had to hear some almost every day.

By the way, the Parsifal excerpts recorded by Karl Muck in the 1920s (Naxos) are a must. I'm always floored by the sound quality when I listen to it.

Sounds like a very worthwhile evening you had there :beerchug: 

 

That sounds like a great experience!

I see, and I agree. I have seen Bluebeard's Castle live twice, and in both cases the ending sent big shivers down my spine...

 

BTW I realized nobody mentioned the other big head-fi list of recommended classical music, courtesy of David Mahler

it may be more balanced than Tyson's in terms of genres and periods (although I find it a touch German centric), but it does not come with recommended recordings...

And it seems that the 20th century hardly exists for David. :regular_smile :
