I don't normally listen to Classical music, but I have been, recently, because I believe that I should get some or some more music appreciation in that area, as anyone that listens to music ought to, I think.
I don't know pieces very well, but I have been waking up to this one, every so often, for a good while.
Hi @Eclipse_31, while I haven’t listened to classical music very often, I discovered a track by Terry Riley a few years ago from his The Book of Abbeyozzud album that I really like, called “Zamorra”; it features classical guitarist David Tanenbaum as well as Terry Riley’s son, Gyan, on acoustic guitar also. The intricate melodic passages on this track sound less minimalist to me compared to other Terry Riley compositions that I've listened to, such as In C and A Rainbow In Curved Air, and also remind me of flamenco music at times. I'd say "Zamorra" is my current favorite classical music piece:
I have to agree with @MadmanOnWheels - everyone who listens to music should venture a bit more into this genre. Also, great track, I'll be adding it in my orchestral master playlist to enjoy again. I see why you chose it as a wake up track, it's very upbeat/cheery in the best way to start a new day.
I recently got recommended this track in another thread here and while I've heard it before, I never managed to know its title to listen to it fully. The melody is quite familiar even if you actively don't listen to classical music:
Hi! Love your thread, I want to share with you my little project called "Los clasicos de Raquel" (Raquel's classics). I started it for a collegue who always wanted listen classical mussic but feeled like he doesn't understand it. I promised that I will create a weekly updated classical playlist, just 1 hour of music, not more, 1 hour per week to listen something different, even for me is really gratefull. Hope you all enjoy, and subscribe it.
One of my favorite sub-genres is Impressionism. It always brings a sense of nostalgia and warm, fuzzy memories. One of my favorite Impressionist works, and one of my favorite pieces of classical music of all time, is Claude Debussy’s La Mer, especially the first movement.
