I dunno why. It’s just kind of mechanically dramatic for me, too much darkness with an unnecessary complement of virtuos-ism. It’s lile Brahms, only with a showmanship factor involved.
I would pick Scriabin’s Concerto of it without much thought.
I feel the same way about various Rach pieces. I do like some of his music, and I love the Rachman’s actual playing.
Diz thread inzpired by da zepp not liking ricordanza my favourite mu*ic.
Hungarian Rhapsody 2 - Flashy and fun but just not that interesting
Much of Ravel (Debussy more pleasurable)
Chopin Ballade 1 - I can see why people like it, but it sounds kind of sentimental to me in a way that doesn’t resonate with my own feelings.
I apologise to all the masters who created these masterful works. I am nothing in comparison to you, and these creations are your contribution to humanity, while this thread seems an insult to humanity, I believe it is also a contribution in its own silly way, by being fun. Thanks.
Hmm…those opening chords are beautiful. It’s just that the orchestra enters with that low edgy melody, and I kind of lose my “boner”. I guess I just don’t typically dig “low” music in general. Music must be bright!
I recommend the Brahms Ballade No. 4 - fantastic transcendental work. If you haven’t heard it (which I might doubt), give it a listen.
I used to shove Brahms aside but I am starting discover a new treasure and alternative to the wackiness of our old Liszt (I’m also pretty young by the “median” age claimed for piano forums).
I don’t know, I’ve just had difficulties warming up to the sound of individual violins and cellos - and when you put them together it’s even worse.
I was playing for effect however, of course I don’t dislike the entire chamber music literature. I’ve had some great experiences with violin+piano in recent years, and I think a good cello+piano recital would score even higher, so I’m making progress at least. Trios and quartets however… Still working on that.
jjuz addin dat sucky pyezez fo my tezt not necesrly bad nd unfun to learn nd pleigh. I vud find it hard to find an actual pyezez no matter how “zheeyat” dat i vud not liek to learn nd play. Becuz i think dat if me pleigh pyezez, interpretation wud automaticly turn it to my teyzt.
I enjoy epractising even Hanon exercsizes for diz matter.
