    Brahms Hungarian Dance No.5 played by Yehudi Menuhin. Great stuff. Then another one (forget which) played by Leonid Kogan, which was fabulous. Love that Kogan. Good old youtube.

    I'm going to have to post for "future" listening today. I'll be away from interenet access until probably Sunday night, so here's my tentative plan.

    I've still got 8:15:12 left on the Beethoven Piano Sonatas.
    I'm going to get as much of Debussy's Preludes as I can.
    Chopin's Scherzos and Polonnaises are also just itching to be listened to.

    Gee can you guys guess my favorite instrument?


    EDIT: Beethoven's 8th Symphony 4th Mvt. has been on loop and I've heard it about 6 times in a row now

    Hi mc 4ces,

    Well that's not exactly classical pieces. Unless there's a link between german hip-hop and classical music I'm not aware of... not impossible...
    Let's leave this topic for classical music - then maybe someone else wants to create a topic on hip-hop.

    I haven't heard any classical music today, but I've been working with dynamic markings in a full set of parts for Sibelius' 2nd symphony... so that must almost count...

    Hello Corno dolce,

    You mean to say that you haven't heard Kraftwerk and Mannheim Steamroller and their versions of classical music????



    Cheers,

    Giovanni

    Verklaerte Nacht arr. for string orchestra
    Gurre-Lieder
    Erwartung
    Friede auf Erde

    Cheers,

    Well Giovanni,

    There's so much wrong with that post of yours, that I really don't know where to start. Suffice it to say that neither Kraftwerk nor Mannheim Steamroller has anything to do with "German hip-hop", the former pioneering in computer based/techno music (a popular-music's Stockhausen if you will) and the latter while first and foremost not being German, but American, and secondly there's a long way from this 80'ies "18 century classical rock" band to German hip-hop.
    And no, the Dutch group Ekseption is not an exception either.

    Dear Corno,

    My post to you was all in jest with no offense meant. I grieve that you felt slighted. Furthermore, I just wanted to share about my total ignorance of the contemporary music scene.

    Ah well

    I am sorry. I haven't read the name from this corner correct...

    Giovanni: No hard feelings here... just good jest! cheers my good man!

    mc 4ces: it's quite alright, just wanted to point out to later posters that the topic here actually was classical music, and not hip-hop. - There are plenty of room for discussing hip-hop at this site, just not right here in "this corner" - as you've also stated.
    With that said, please share with us your own feelings on hip-hop... why have you "taken this particular musical expression to heart"? I myself, know little to nothing in depth about hip-hop, and would love to learn more about it. You're welcome to start your own thread in a more appropriate forum/corner of this site.

    Well, how about this- if a hip-hop song endures for long enough, eventually it could possibly be termed as 'classic hip-hop', which is just two letters away from 'classical hip-hop.'

    Wow, that`s a lot of Mozart!

    For me today it was William Walton`s Violin Concerto. I think it was Nigel Kennedy playing! Lovely stuff by this English composer. So then I listened to his Five Bagatelles for Guitar, played by Julian Bream. Apparently Walton wrote them for him. The Violin Concerto he wrote for Heifetz.

    unfortunately I seem to spend too much time looking for undiscovered geniuses on forums or trying to write my own stuff just now. The last piece on CD I put on was the Brahms sextets a few days ago already!
