I thought you and Brodsky were mates? More than once, up against the wall as usual, you've referenced him as a supporter. You have to be careful, Parla, one friend is offnet right now, you don't want to alienate the other. 

 

This thread is madness, madness I say. Why you getting people to choose sides like a playground bully. Is this not a place for civilised debate.

RE: Musical recommendation

Welcome Brodsky #31.

RE: Musical recommendation

As far as vast soundscapes go I think perhaps Bruckner would be a good choice. 

RE: Musical recommendation

Dear MAR, if you are a "metal" fan, more than Mahler's 5th symphony I recommend to you listen the 6th symphony of the same composer, specially in Georg Solti's version, in EMI, or Honegger's "Liturgique" symphony, that I think would'll satisfy all you expectatives. Of course that's only to begin your transit for this long and winding road, soon and later you'll hear Beethoven, Mozart and Brahms's works and you'll love them (I give you signed this!)like all in this site!. Excuse my english please. Best regards. oscar.olavarria

 

RE: Musical recommendation

Thank you all for your suggestion! I listen to some already this week on youtube.

Victoria, I try this Mahler but like only the very start much. This is for me difficult music.

goofy, of course I know very well Fragile and in fact Brahms is one thing I try very early before I write here.

oscar, no I not like the "metal" which is other thing to Genesis and Yes. Try these bands on youtube, please. Of course I try also Honneger but one more I find it very difficult music after perhaps just the start.

bazza, as I say now, the symphonic progressive music is not "prog rock" which is things more like King Crimson and Jethro Tull and the Pink Floyd.

sally, can you recommend one best thing of Bruckner!

MAR

RE: Musical recommendation

Why don't you try to start from the basis, the roots (and the great fruits), namely, the man who is Music himself: Bach (and some of his glorious sons, like C.P.E.) or the man where Music is his nature and called Mozart. Or the great teacher: Haydn. If they fail you, well...good luck!..

MAR, you seem not to be having much luck, but your post has at least prompted me to dust down my old Yes albums (Genesis I can't stomach). Some great stuff there: "Starship Trooper", "Gates Of Delirium", "Heart Of The Sunrise". With those in mind, I think you need to try something colourful and rhythmic. How's about "Petrushka" (Stravinsky) or "The Planets" (Holst)? "MARs" should certainly appeal to you!

If we don't get a lecture over this, it could be a sign of progress.  I mentioned Paul Simon once and it felt as if a fatwa was on my head for doing so here.

Vic.

RE: Musical recommendation

Actually, I used to listen to "early" Genesis a bit. Selling England by the Pound. The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway...... My memory is that it is isn't quite as complex or symphonic as people like to say. More like jazz, with long, improvisatory passages built over fairly repetitive foundations.

(I was very young at the time......)

RE: Musical recommendation

As for Paul Simon, I am currently trying to learn Kathy's Song on the guitar.......... I hear the drizzle of the rain............
