You're a sly mutha, you know that? Nice "art of misdirection" jokes within jokes..

Not to hijack my own thread, but on a related tangent, I've (for a few years now) had the desire to create a danceable electronic symphony. Being that my musical training is very basic (well, compared to people who still study, anyway) I'm sure this is an idea that smacks of hubris (HuH?), but what do you all think of the idea? Has it been done? Probably.. interesting? I think so.

BBB.

Whoops, rambling..

LOL at deep.

And you win the cookie too (re: platoon).

S.Chronie: Some pieces made me want to slit my wrists rather than play it:

chopin's etude, op.10. No. 12 in C minor and the grande valse brilliante

seriously. I'd end up laughing in hysterics after a couple of hours at the piano on the same fucking bar. same with the first one I mentioned. I can't count how many copies of that sheet music I shredded in total frustration. Dunno what it was, but I just couldn't get it fast at all.

I can laugh about it now tho.

some of my faves, but honestly I could go on all day.

Instrumental :

Claire de Lune - Debussy (violin)
Symphony #7 in A - allegro con brio - Beethoven
Midsummer Night's Dream - Mendelssohn (orchestra)
La Fille aux Cheveux de Lin - Debussy (always brings tears to my eyes) an amazing version is played by Isaac Stern (violin)
Méditation - Thais (violin)
concerto for Violin and orchestra - Bruch
for piano I am a HUGE fan of all that is Chopin
Wagner Symphonies
Symphonie Fantastiques - Berlioz
March Slave - Tchaikovsky (orchestra)

Vocal :

Les Pecheurs de Perles (the Pearl Fishers) - Au Fond Du Temple Saint - Bizet sung by Jussi Bjoerling, it's a duet and honestly it is one of the most beautiful duets I have ever heard
Recitar! Vesti la giubba - Leoncavallo ( the best version ever is by Pavarotti)
Flower Duet - Lakme Léo Délibes
Nessum Dorma - Puccini (sung by Pavarotti)

okay I cold go on forever, but there are so many beautiful classical pieces, works, etc...

Seriously!

I have played the violin for 16 years, and it was the most love hate relationship I am sure I will ever encounter.
I threw tantrums at my mom for making me wake up at 6:30 to practise every morning, for driving me to Saskatoon every week-end 2 and a half hours for my violin lessons and for orchestra, I never ever thought I would be persuing music until I discovered I can sing. haha.
I can't believe my mom lasted through three of us learning the violin and cello since we were three years old. damn.

lol @ Moez

Even now, when I try to play a really hard piece that I used to be able to play backwards with my eyes tied behind my back, I can feel the same old rage rising as I fuck up time and time again.

I even shredded a book as recently as this year. Feels soo good.

That's quite an impressive feat. My eyes barely move out of their sockets.

Ugh. Brings back many painful memories. I'd screw up at the same spots again and again and get really mad, and the madder I got, the harder and faster I would play, and the worse it would sound, until finally I'd slam both hands down on the keys and run out of the room. After living 6 years away from a piano, it seems I end up doing that when I try to play anything, no matter how easy it used to be. I can't wait until I can afford my own piano and can play regularly again.

But even after all the pain some of his pieces have caused me, Chopin is my favourite.

For something a little different, or at least something that hasn't been mentioned here, I recommend Erik Satie. If you've seen the movie Moulin Rouge (the composer in the movie is supposed to be Satie), the music in that is nothing like the stuff he actually wrote. His better known stuff that you may have heard before includes trois gymnopédies (not my favourite) and trois gnossiennes for the piano and the ballet Parade. I know some people who really dislike him, but I like him, and his stuff is fun to play. Instead of using the regular Italian terms to describe how the music should be played, he'll have cryptic stuff like "open the head," or there will be no time signature etc. Fun stuff.

My very favourite is Adagio for Strings by Albionini. It's so sad.

For piano, I like stuff by Bartok.
