>Not paying attention to Furtwängler, who was rehearsing a symphony, Rachmaninoff sat down at the piano, looked at his watch, and thunderously struck a few chords. Perplexed, Furtwängler stopped. He looked at Rachmaninoff, who showed his watch and said, ‘My rehearsal time was ten-thirty.’ With no further exchange the rehearsal of the concerto commenced. After five minutes or so, Rachmaninoff walked to the conductor’s stand and began to conduct. The orchestra had two conductors – Furtwängler, bewildered, and Rachmaninoff, swearing in Russian.

Even in the "meme concert pieces" Liszt is fascinating. The 1st piano concerto has a very intricate structure, for example
>>
Finished Fischer-Dieskau's book on the relationship between Wagner and Nietzsche yesterday. Really fascinating how it all functioned, although reading about Liszt's death was particularly saddening: how he basically sat through a performance of Tristan whilst dying of pneumonia, trying to suppress his coughs, trying to keep Cosima happy. A hugely interesting web of relationships overall

Yeah, the dynamics are really interesting. You've got Cosima living with (and having children with) Wagner while still married to Bulow. Then there's Nietzsche who is Wagner's #1 groupie for many years yet who also cultivates a close friendship with Bulow despite this.
But Liszt, who had previously been very close to Wagner was estranged as a result of Cosima and Wagner's relationship (Princess Wittgenstein hated it even more, even though she had done something fairly similar herself). Eventually he is reconciled towards the end of his life when Cosima and Wagner get properly married, at which point he's become a religious man and goes to Bayreuth not as the great virtuoso but more as an anonymous figure amongst the crowds of Wagnerites.
And then after he dies he is buried in Bayreuth. Weimar, Hungary and Rome all demanded that he be buried there, but Cosima would only allow that if certain criteria were fulfilled (in Weimar, he had to be buried next to Schiller and Goethe, who were themselves buried next to the royal area; in Hungary, he had to be given a full state funeral). It's almost like he becomes buried under the Wagner mythos.
>>
>>72867376
I always had the impression that Nietzsche was close to Wagner, but that it was one-sided affection?
>>
>>72867404
It was sort of a two-way street. Nietzsche originally saw Wagner as some Schopenhauer's philosophy on art/music made manifest, believing that Wagner was going to bring balance to the Apollonian/Dionysian model which had been steadily decaying in modern times.
He was brought into the Wagner household as a young man partly because Wagner needed a propagandist to help him fight his corner in the musical debates going on at the time, leading to Nietzsche basically torpedoing his scholarly reputation in The Birth of Tragedy which took a long time to recover. There was however genuine affection between the two, even if Nietzsche probably cared more about Wagner than the other way round.
>>
The more I read about Wagner the more he comes off as a son of a bitch. Awful man, great music.
>>
>>72867523
Sometimes I feel as if he took his most "asshole" qualities and put them into some of his heroes (Tristan and Siegfried)
>>
>>72867523
I thought that at points, but I'm more convinced that he was just so focused on his music that his awfulness was more a side-effect than his actual goal. I mean, the whole thing with Ludwig II is quite saddening, how he basically spent his whole life trying to buy Wagner's affection by acceding to all his demands for money, but to be fair it's not really Wagner's fault that Ludwig decided that was the best way to achieve it.
But taking the anti-semitism for example: it was probably down to Cosima more than Wagner; there's a letter from Levi (Jewish conductor who was very good friends with Wagner, conducted the first performance of Parsifal - although Wagner himself conducted the ending, which was apparently quite something) in which he basically says the Wagner's anti-semitism stems from some "loftier" ideal about preserving art and whilst it's very misguided, it's not necessarily malicious.
>>
>>72867579
>says the Wagner's anti-semitism stems from some "loftier" ideal about preserving art and whilst it's very misguided, it's not necessarily malicious.

Yeah, it's pretty clear from Religion and Art that he mostly dislikes their faith, not necessarily their race.

>Obviously, it is not Jesus Christ, the Saviour, whom our military clergy praise as a paragon in front of the assembled battalions, before the beginning of the slaughter. Even if they name Him, they really mean: Jehova, Yahweh or one of the Elohim, who hates all other gods other than himself, and who wants to be enchained to his beloved people.

Cosima is another case altogether.

Or a good conductor, which he most certainly was. He was offered more than a few lucrative conducting posts, including the BSO, but he turned it down because he preferred being a soloist.

Listen to more classical music. Then you'll have something to discuss about.

I for one stopped posting because that guy with the /pseud/ memeposting is right. Getting discussion going in these threads is extremely hard. I had to samefag for a dozen posts before anyone actually riffed off one of them. To actually do anything here besides share links you have to LARP as a curator of the thread, come up with personae with different musical preferences to try to figure out what jives with others and what doesn't, and then come up with the perfect hook-up line... And most dialogues I had were with 2 people (a singer and some other guy, a pianist if I'm not wrong) to the point where I can now almost discern who I'm talking to just by their wording style.

When a handful of people (3 or 4, pretty much) make 90% of the discussion here, you know the general is pretty much running on fumes. No point in a glorified share thread imho, especially when people post the same shit over and over again.

It gets boring.

Yeah, the job of "curating" used to be the domain of the trips who were able to generated conversation through their personalities which were often designed to be quite provocative in order to merit discussion. Actual discussion happened because there were genuinely knowledgeable people attracted by the posting, but the job of bumping the threads was done by CLT and friends, with a combination of shitposting and some actual discussion.

In other news, Cinquecento seem to have been the only group to do a recording of Willaert's Quid non ebrietas, which is interesting because it's a piece with a fair bit of scholarship concerning it which usually means it will get recordings.

What is /classical/'s opinion of Carlos Kleiber? Is he overrated or is he one of the greatest conductors of all time? The sadly meager amount of work that he's produced, his beethoven's 5th and 7th symphonies, and brahms 4th (among his wagner tristan und isolde and schubert symphony) absolutely blow me away every time I listen to them. I also love watching recordings of the man play. This is as a person who too orchestra in high school, but was never very serious about my pursuits and never studied music that much. So my opinion is non expert, but I still find myself wishing he had released more music.

Do you think there is an equivalent, more prolific conductor? Perhaps Herbert Von Karajan?

>>
>>72878926
>What is /classical/'s opinion of Carlos Kleiber?
Certainly a great conductor.
>Is he overrated or is he one of the greatest conductors of all time?
On the basis of his studio recordings, yes. He kind of has this over-exaggerated "legendary" interpretation about him -- as if he were some sort of divine conductor, or something. But a few of his studio recordings can be quite disappointing. And, as you say, the repertoire is too limited.

In my opinion, every single one of his live counterparts are more interesting, and sometimes easier on the ears (his Beethoven 7th, for instance)

>Do you think there is an equivalent, more prolific conductor?
Carl is Carl. There aren't really any other conductors who are precisely like him. On the basis of their reputation, though? Furtwängler has a similar "legendary" reputation - especially amongst conductors. Karajan is a bit more of a polarizing case, but there's no denying his influence on mid 20th century conducting (which is really just an extension of Stokowski's influence)

I would also like to add that, strangely, I did not know about his enigmatic reputation when I first listened to him. I became interested in him when I first listened to his recording of brahms 4th symphony, and then saw a recording of him in the great conductors of the 20th century documentary (if that's what that documentary was called).

Was on my family's sail boat today, standing on top of it seated on it's trailer in the yacht club parking lot, polishing off and sanding it for the season this year. I listened the same thing I've been listening to for the past 3 days while I do my work, beethoven's 9th symphony (furtwangler's recording yesterday, karajan's 1977 today, the 1963 recording on the first day, and fricsay's also on the second day), as well as the first disc of the two disc set of bela bartok's string quartets (the tacaks quartet recording), and "Le Sacre du Printemps (Orchestre National de l'O.R.T.F, Boulez, 1963)" which is in folder 8.

It was nice. I used my Echobox Finder X1 earbuds, and wore them under ear protectors (I think they were around 32 decibel rating, something like that). It isolated the sound very well, even with the power tools, it was enjoyable listening to music in solitude up there.

I don't know how you can stand his operas unless you actually know german. The singing has the disjointed tempo of talking more than it carries a rhythm. As a person who is not afraid of compositions written in foreign languages (das lied von der erde is possibly my favorite composition of all time), I find tristan und isolde incredibly boring. I listened to the whole thing once, because it was my 90,000th last.fm scrobble (I've revealed how big of a nerd I am), and I was bored to tears. I tried to sit in my chair and listen to it without distractions for a while, but before long it became background noise for me.

I understand that it is probably written to be more of a play than a serious piece of music, but there is nothing epic about it from a musical perspective to me, begging mahler, beethoven, stravinsky. I do not judge a person's music based on their political beliefs, I would like to enjoy Wagner. However, I do find fascism repulsive.

It's a musical drama, only the preludes and overtures are meant to be self-sufficient.

>but there is nothing epic about it from a musical perspective to me
Because you're missing 80% of his compositions, by listening only to the music. For example, leit motifs will just go over your head, since you won't be able to associate, for example, love potions to their themes.

Still, there are countless DVDs, and on youtube and torrent sites it is easy to find live performances of high quality. Listen and watch them, study his scores voraciously and try to understand the librettos. Give it a try, Wagner is one of those few composers that deserve it.

>I would like to enjoy Wagner. However, I do find fascism repulsive.
Wagner may have been anti-semitic, but he was anything but a fascist.
Ideologically he was closer to anarchism, personally he was an opportunist (he followed the teachings of Schopenhauer, which meant that to him his art had the priority over literally everything else).
It's certainly a flawed character, but to associate them with the Nazi and Fascist parties of the XIX century is both unfair and useless.

His Beethoven 5 is about as ferocious as you can get but I disagree with some of the more idiosyncratic aspects of the 7th (plucking the end of the allegretto for an example). I don't deny that he's a great conductor though.

What is, in your opinion, the definitive version of beethoven's 9th symphony? Is it the ones you would expect, fricsay, karajan, and furtwangler, or something else? Which is your favorite, or which do you think is "the best"?
>>
>>72881828
There's very few recordings of anything that I would consider completely definitive, I'm not sure if I even have one.

When it comes to the 9th, there's a lot of good ones. Fricsay, Klemp's live ones, Furt's various readings, Abendroth's late account, Schuricht's (Conservatoire), Leibowitz, Fried (for that great singing), Mengelberg, Tennstedt, etc. etc.

Well, there's nothing wrong with either way, just bear in mind that if a piece was written individually it was pretty much meant to be heard on its own, not in the middle of an album full of other stuff.

Hey everyone. So I have the complete Deutsche Grammophon The Originals - Legendary Recording collection, volumes 1 and 2. I am not sure where to upload it though, as it's quite large. I meticulously tagged every single album on it, the whole thing is completely tagged with album artwork, album (composer - piece - conductor (and/or performer), orchestra - year (if applicable)), with the composer under the "artist" tag, so it shows up on last.fm as the composer when you scrobble it on last.fm.

I also made a 320kbps rip from the lossless files, of the exact same collection.

So, I can never seem to find a good recording of brahms piano quartet in c minor op. 30 III andante. The only good recording, which I feel is a good interpretation of it, is on youtube uploaded by smalin, and a recording with Menahem Pressler at verbier festival (which has a far superior version of schumann's piano quartet than the one he recorded with the emerson quartet).

I feel like all the versions recorded with the most famous recordings artists are just bad interpretations, totally throwing off the feeling of the music. I hear versions with yo yo ma and isaac stern, and arthur rubinstein, and they play it at this horrible stately tempo. The piece is meant to be the most passionate piece, like it's being played in the throws of the deepest love. So many people seem to fuck up this precious quality.

>"Music should humbly seek to please; within these limits great beauty may perhaps be found. Extreme complication is contrary to art. Beauty must appeal to the senses, must provide us with immediate enjoyment, must impress us or insinuate itself into us without any effort on our part. " Debussy

>>
>>72889735
Well, that certainly is how it feels listening to debussy's music. It's nice to see someone who accomplished what they expect out of music. I think he's right, and anyone who says contrary is a contrarian, and nothing more.

>>
>>72890391
I admire Debussy, mainly for his "neo-modal" approach to harmony, which is about as important to 20th century music as German late romanticism and the Second Viennese "emancipation of the dissonance", but find his actual compositions largely uninteresting. I am a massive Ravel fanboy however. Both composers disliked the term "impressionism" but they're usually lumped together under it anyway. I don't have much of an opinion on it because I've never really understood what it was supposed to be.
>>
>>72889721
Isn't the Rubinstein recording quite fast, though?

>>72890815
Fastness has nothing to do with it. By stately I mean it's played at a steady waltz, like it was some dance at a fancy ball room ala a disney princess movie.

If anything, it shouldn't be rushed, but with more feeling. I especially think there should be more weeping in the violin section. This piece should be played with a burning passion.

I'm not sure it if the right place to ask, but I have this $50 violin that I rarely use. I used to use it for school, until I rented a proper one.

The tailpiece is all kinds of fucked, the bridge isn't cut right and neither is the nut and it has trouble staying in tune. The brand is Crescent

Is there anything I can do with it to get it up to snuff or is it trash?
>>
>>72890955
This piece is good and has a lot of characteristics I like. There's not so many parts I disagree with, as much as I don't know I feel about. I do like how this piece is played with a lot of feeling, not like that waltz crap which ruins the piece as you noticed me saying, which is, I assume, why you chose this piece to show me. There was also the part some time during the middle of the song, during the piano build up and then the strings sort of suddenly climaxing and then briefly fading away, where I did feel that the piano was a bit too slow when it returned. That's something I'm not sure I agree with. I also don't know much much I agree with some parts where I felt that the violin was holding a note for too long, the violinist has the right idea, but the execution feels a bit too generalized. There were times when holding a note for a bit briefer would have given the piece more variety. The mixing quality is also not that great.

7/10. Strong performance, a few disagreements or questionable choices.
>>
>>72891058
I don't know much about violins, but I know that with cheap and poorly made guitars it's usually much more expensive to have it fixed into working order than it is to just buy a new one of good-ish quality.

I just went to rym and punched in "classical music" into the custom list bar, and selected the 2010s. What the fuck is all this garbage? It's literally just soundtracks and miscellaneous post rock shit like "a winged victory for the sullen" and more of that fucking minimalist shit. This is depressing. Please convince me that there's more than absolute garbage being produced in classical music now a days, or more realistically, when the fuck is classical music going to see a revival? Maybe when people stop being fat and stupid, or when pigs fly.
>>
>>72891114

You could always check out Donaueschinger Musiktage. It's a festival that sees a lot of premieres from "important" composers, they put out box sets of recordings of their premieres each year. Hit and miss, as you'd expect, but it's about the best you can get in these confused musical times.

Debussy, being Debussy, had very precise artistic goals, that fit perfectly his personality, talents, attitudes and desires.

As such, this advice is useful only for Debussy, while it would be useless to Ravel.

The source of art in that statement is not the content of that statement, but the existence of the statement itself. Once you have an idea, a comprehensive vision of what music should sound like, you can progressively and deliberatly tend to that idea theough your craft, and that's what Debussy did. If you've got a different vision, you'll get to a different, excessively specific definition of art.

It's better, that's all I'm saying. Btw, people seem to think that I study compositions. I'm flattered, but I don't study music. Tristan und Isolde is what, 5 hours long? Not to mention it has no memorable parts whatsoever. I've gathered from a comment in this thread that it's meant to be watched along with listened to, and I imagine that it would make more sense if you could understand the language it's sung in. I'm sure it's brilliant and exceptionally good in terms of it's lyrical content. However I don't even read the lyrics when I listen to Das Lied Von Der Erde, and I still enjoy the hell out of that performance, because it is just so well composed. I think Tristan Und Isolde is an extremely boring composition, I sat through the entire thing once and it just became background noise to me. Plus, I did not slog through that gargantuan album only to be pestered, if anything I deserve praise, for having so much patience.
>>
>>72893649
You're a massive plebeian. Das Lied Von Der Erde is a pseudo-symphony. Its poem is entirely secondary to the music. Again: why would you listen to an opera as you would listen to a symphony?

Is Liszt the best looking composer of all time?
(no homo)
>>
>>72893649
Tristan und Isolde is 3 hours long iirc.
You don't need to understand the lyrics to appreciate its brillance (they're not that special), in fact, the prelude and the liebestod are one of the most accessible pieces of all the Wagner repertoire.

It might seem boring to you because the impressive thing about Tristan und Isolde is precisely that it goes for 3 hours without a satisfactory resolution, only when the two lovers met from the Act 2 onwards the music approaches something resembling a conclusion, and in the second act it gets interrupted, it's not until the very end of the whole opera that you get the climax.
>>
>>72894042
Oh, it's actually 4 hours long.
>>
>>72894042

try reading thru the texts for this with a german and english translation side by side while listening. you think you like it now, the music is informed by the text and vice versa.

Verklarte Nacht and the First Chamber Symphony, then try the Second String Quartet, the Serenade, and the Piano Concerto.

>>72899465
Add.: With this progression you'll have a fairly easy time following his progression from an accomplished master of German late romanticism to the enfant terrible of modernism, and with the Piano Concerto his eventual reconciliation of the so-called "atonal" style with a kind of neo-classicism.

Things to bear in mind: Schoenberg is heavily indebted to both Wagner and Brahms, as well as Mahler (though Mahler's influence is more deeply felt in the music of Berg, one of Schoenberg's most important associates). He uses a dense contrapuntal style which emphasises constant motivic development, but don't sweat following each line right away, it's rich music that rewards repeat listens.

It's true, when you ascend you are able to sing better than Wunderlich, or summon his spirit if you wanna indulge like that, it's a realm of possibilities

Is this considered contemporary classical music?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYhySafAt6A
>>
>>72900515
It's certainly presented and consumed as such by people whose idea of classical music never leaves the confines of the extremely limited range of pieces broadcast on classic.fm. I don't think anyone considers it to be "serious" contemporary music, however.
>>
>>72900602
Yeah it sounds too I don't know, easy?
>>
>>72900652
It's basically muzak putting on airs. It's a shame that some composers felt the need to go to such extremes to resist the developments made by the post-war avant garde. Surely there is good new music to be made in the space between this and Ferneyhough, but no one seems to be claiming it.

Rihm is interesting, at least what I have heard, though I can't say I'm all that familiar with his work.

I've watched the operas those are from but nothing in there really struck me as much as those two songs did

I realize they're super entry level
>>
you DO support your local classical public radio station, right /classical/?

>>72901918

>>72901740
he is one of my favorite contemporary composers so his name comes easy to me
might as well add in saariaho, rautavaara, and rochberg.

theres one other composer im forgetting but cant remember...
>>
>>72901958
may have been ivan erod. another name is bent sorensen. anyway, point is theres plenty of composers in between who experimented with different styles (old and/or pop). question is just whether theyre good or not.

Anyone have all those Sabata recordings made in Berlin by chance?

what do you mean by Berlin?
>>
>>72899465
Best recordings of these pieces?
>>
>>72903729
LaSalle for Verklarte Nacht
Gielen for the Chamber Symphony
Arditti for the String Quartet
Craft for the Serenade
Boulez/Uchida for the Piano Concerto
>>
>>72903729
Too many to choose from.

Verklärte Nacht; Hollywood Quartet (composer approved), LaSalle, Slowik/Smithsonian (both versions are great), Klemperer, Karajan...

Chamber Symphony; Scherchen, Slowik, de Leeuw

String Quartet(s); Kolisch (the "perfect" performance, according the Schoenberg), LaSalle, Juilliard, Petersen. There's also an orchestral version with Mitropoulos that may be worth hearing. It's with Varnay.

Not so sure about the Serenade and Piano Concerto. I don't listen to etiher of those often enough to recommend an interpretation.

Thank you

>>72902531
I'm assuming he's referring to the 1939 recordings he made with the Berlin Phil.

I think Pristine has those all collected on one set, but no one else. I only have the Brahms 4 from that Andante set (flat pitch) myself.
>>
Man, whoever did that Heifetz/Feuermann Brahms Double transfer for RCA needs to be shot

Like, they didn't even try
>>
>>72904104
i have this
http://www.allmusic.com/album/release/victor-de-sabata-mr0002669964
its not that good though, and theres nothing special about the pearl transfers. and i like de sabata.
>>
>>72904370
I'll probably eventually buy the Obert-Thorn Pristine transfer anyway, but thanks.
>>
>>72904370
Original requester here, sorry but I'm still on the train back from class
I don't mind bad transfers, can you please upload? Would be appreciated

Signal here is bad so I probably won't see it until I get home.

There is no set definition of what is a 'meme' piece
I said they were popular pieces overplayed. Other posted said they were pieces where the background is more important than the music.
By his definition, all Mozart is "meme" so its a pretty shitty definition.
Probably there are other definitions: like pieces that are more popular than the music merits - like Holst's planets or Ravel's Bolero.
>>
>>72904201
what?

>>72904432
ill try to find it.

>what?
The side breaks are extremely obnoxious. Not only are the transitions simply not there or half-assed, but the equalization between the breaks can sound significantly different too. Almost to the point where I'd suspect that some of the breaks were recorded on different days, with different microphones; so drastic is the change in the overall sound portrait. To be fair, though, this is mostly noticeable in the first movement.

I dunno. Just seems like a bit of a lazy transfer. I haven't heard any other ones to compare it to, however.
>>
>>72904911
what album is this on?
>>
>>72904928
It's from that recent box set collection of Heifetz. Which I suspect is mostly just a re-issue of their older set from the 90s.
>>
>>72904955
after the early 2000 or so rach box set i stopped paying attention to any of rca's newer retransfers.
>>
Someone give me some recs for something moving, moody, or sad. Possibly similar to say
>Borodin's String Quartet no2
>Barber's Adagio for strings
>Rachmaninoff's Symphony no2
>>
>tfw I keep hearing what I think is the opening to the final movement of a piano concerto but I just can't remember enough to place it
