It can also be a ‘why is this so famous when something similar is better’ discussion.
op.101, op.106 fugue & Archduke (the trio, more of a meh)
3 - more sick of hearing.
:Bach: I can not get into most of the keyboard works, I don’t know why. I like the choral and orchestral music, but there’s very few of the keyboard pieces that get move me.
:Bartok: 2PC I like the 1st and 3rd, 2nd doesn’t do it for me.
:Britten: - pretty much anything past a few early pieces. Went to a Choral service which was ruined by the Jubilate. And if I never hear Rejoice in the Lamb again it will be…just never.
:Zart: PC25 - can’t get into this one.
PC20 - not that I don’t like it, but I think it’s overhyped compared to 24.
For me it’s more works that I’m sick of which is many standard fare (Rach preludes, most Chopin).
Works that I’ve never really been able to get into: Prokofiev 8 (apart from the last movement), Diabelli variations (pozz just haven’t spent enough time with these).
For the most part though, if I listen to a piece enough I can grow to like it.
Not a crows fan then? AFL is one of the main reasons I could never move to Melbourne, and rugby league is almost as bad.
I don’t like following sport out of principle (even though I used to play a lot of it growing up), since Australia’s collective self-esteem is indelibly tied to sport, while art is almost completely ignored.
I can take it or leave it, but the business and religious hype put me off. (Plus all my cousins are Port supporters…)
Same, I’ve got nothing against sport as sport but Australia’s fascination with it is whacked. It’s similar everywhere I guess - Italy & Uk with Soccer, Us with football etc but at least they have an arts culture.
