What is your favorite piece of music of all time, my was an old test piece a long time ago called TINTAGEL does anyone remember playing that. let me know your favorite piece ever.
Don't know if these are my favourite but they are both fantastic pieces, you obviously have good taste :wink:cornetgirl said:Mine is Leonard Bernstein's Candide Overture - wonderful music. A close second is the slow movement of Rachmaninov's 2nd Symphony.
I have played gurrelieder so know what its like. I was just wondering how this could in be in someones favourites :shock: .PeterBale said:
I'll go wiv them, fantastic stuff, esp. Adagio, mv. 3, Rach 2. Wouldn't call 'em absolute favourite, though. Are we playing our favourite piece of music or listening?? I know for me personally there's a definite difference. For example, there's a difference between playing something like say the 'Imperial March' (JW), and having to listen to someone else enjoying the honk! As for listening, what a bit of Walton, Spitfire or Crown Imperial, Tchaik 4., Rach. 2, Holst 'Planets' (Mars + Jupiter), Bernstein 'West Side Story'? The list is endless. (I know there all orchestral/symphonic)cornetgirl said:Mine is Leonard Bernstein's Candide Overture - wonderful music. A close second is the slow movement of Rachmaninov's 2nd Symphony.
Now Turrangilila & Bruckner I can go along with . .PeterBale said:I suppose I am a sucker for the big orchestral sound - Turrangilila Symphony, Gothic Symphony, Bruckner, Hovhaness - they all suit me down to the ground, but I know they can be an acquired taste!
