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.

It's famous for being in "The Truman Show", with Jim Carrey.

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:

Hey @Eclipse_31, awesome thread idea! What's yours?

 

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.

I’ll start posting my favorites as well.

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.

This is another favorite one of Debussy’s, Pagodes, inspired by Indonesian gamelan music. The buildup spirits me away, if you get what I mean.

I am sorry, but can It be another classical music?

Do You know, classical music is not just european classical music, sound tracks, but also indian classical music (Carnatic and Hindustani), Indonesian Gamelan, Turkish (Ottoman) classical music, ETC.

So, can We post also music from another traditions, than is our tradition?

Thank You.

@NoguriNot many of us are exposed to classical music out of the usual. I definitely didn't learn about any of those you mentioned, so please feel free to post and introduce! 🙂

 

One of those pieces that makes me feel so many feelings is this Modest Mussorgsky piece:

Particularly those gentle fluttering parts. They were sampled in a certain electronic song by Amon Tobin and man does it lend so much into that track... 💗
