What did the contemporary classicals achieve? They alienated everyone and got fucking nothing in the end. Like going to the top of the everest and then just before reaching the top, they started running in circles frantically and then shot themselves in the head.

They entered inside their own ass and got lost in recursive autism forever. How will we ever repair the damage they did?

Are you aware of the fact that the birth, life, and direction of contemporary classical was largely influenced by politics and used as propaganda?

Darmstadt is on the record as being funded and promoted by post-war American presence in Germany. Some interesting things came out of the contemporary movement but ignorance of it's artificial purpose is an unforgivable crime against art.

>Are you aware
that all art and popular entertainment is influenced by politics and propaganda. Or just because you've just discovered a well known link you declare the art made "artificial". Do you imagine that people who studied at Darmstadt would never have made art if not for that cash injection. Do you believe requiems commissioned for money can't be sincerely religious. Do you believe Haydn or Vivialdi or DuFay were not political because you aren't aware of the political milieu they lived in.

It's rare that modern recordings can challenge the old masters, desu. The kind of rigorous, temperamental atmosphere just doesn't exist in the comfortable decadent West anymore. The most they can do is avoid or subvert the old masters by creating new considerations like (((historically informed performances))) that only target the autistic academics and leave everyone else yawning.

Every once in a while though, you still get surprises. This recent rendition of the Tchaikovsky Pathetique is really quite excellent.

Any DAW like Cubase, Logic Pro, even FL studio will do the job.

The part that makes them sound real is 3rd party sample libraries. You want Kontakt 4 or 5 and as many sample libraries as you can get: East West, Cinesamples, Spitfire Audio, Vienna Symphonic Orchestra, and a shit ton of other boutique sample studios.
All DAWs can run Konkakt, and Kontakt will run all these libraries (it acts as a shell).

First of all, I've been an atheist since birth. However, your "special book" tells you that you weren't born a Christian because a mythical lady ate some fruit. Haha, stupid creationist piece of shit. Don't you know that I'm a certified zoologist at the Columbus Community College. HA! I pity those like your are stupid enough to believe in some fake super natural entity. Let me tell you something fucko, your religion is terrible and dangerous, your symbol is the object that your dear leader was crucified on. Before you say something like, "You have to read the whole Bible first". Well, for your information I've read the first two pages and I didn't need to read 1,200 pages to know that your bullshit Religion is evil. Your God also falsely claims that I'm not allowed to touch myself at night. Guess what fucker? I'll jerk off to underage anime girls all night and clean the hot, sticky semen with my long ass beard which stems from my neck. It's probably even longer than that of Jesus; who didn't even exist. And I bet you my whole fedora collection that my IQ will always be hire than yours. Come back when you're not an evil person, creationist retard.

typically older, but it really depends. i just happen to prefer older performance styles, many of which have been completely dead for quite some time. there are still many great performers these days, though.

>>81425239
yeah, Currentzis sometimes comes across as a bit tryhard to me, but i don't even care anymore. his recordings are so exciting and interesting.

and there are a decent chunk of HIPsters which are quite good. romantic HIPsterism is pretty asinine, though; they conveniently ignore all the recorded evidence that we have for composers like Brahms, Wagner, or Mahler, which is just silly.

In my opinion it's the oldies and the mainstream (eg Horowitz, Schnabel, Rubinstein) who begin to sound stuffy after a while and I feel like this generation of current pianists is the first to put out some truly exciting talent in a while, talking about Hamelin, Sudbin, and Pienaar, to name a few of my favourites who are sometimes considered "eccentric" by classical boomers.

>>
>>81430413
i agree on Horowitz and Rubinstein, who i never really caught on with. Schnabel, too, has a lot of weaknesses, but i feel like he prevails regardless; there's nothing quite like his Beethoven set in terms of overall quality, fluffed notes aside.

Horowitz in particular is just really bizarre to me. great technical command, no doubt, but i find that many of interpretations are just plain weird. his Scriabin for instance just strikes me as quite bad. give me a Feinberg or a Zhukov anyday.
>>81434949

>>
>>81441573
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=triad+music
>>
>>81441573
by degrees i mean degrees of the scale, there are 7 different degrees of the scale used in western classical music you'll notice in the pic that there is 8 because when playing the scale it sounds incomplete without ending on the tonic which is another name for the first degree and in this case is the note C, another example the fourth scale degree is the note F

triads are any chords with three notes, when you take each note of the scale and add both the note that is 2 scale steps above it and the 4 scale steps above it you get the diatonic triads like in the pic, the note you start on is called the root

they all have a perfect 5th interval (very consonant interval) between the bottom note and the top note except for the triad that has B as the root which has a diminished 5th (dissonant interval), the difference between major triads and minor triads is the interval between the lowest note and the middle note, the 1st degree, 4th degree, 5th degree, are all major triads while the 2nd degree, 3rd degree, and 6th degree are minor triads, the triad built on B is called diminished triad because of its diminished 5th interval, it also has a minor 3rd

It sounds like you're just playing what feels good in the moment. The triplet grace note approaches don't really add anything substantial, if you want to improve your composition I suggest dropping them completely. I can't really detect any sort of plan or narrative. Really the main point of classical music is that there's some sort of large-scale organization at work.

he slowed down substantially after 1950 due to health problems, and many of his studio recordings made for EMI are top shit. but most Furtfags tend to recommend his wartime recordings or live recordings, both of which are typically more interesting than most of his material from 1951 onward. and honestly even after 1951 he still did some good Brahms at least.

Ok boys, Big questions ahead.
I've been lurking these threads for a while and you've convinced me to get into music theory. I'm a fairly average Acoustic Guitarrist but I heavily rely on Tabs. However, Ive been thinking of getting into Bass, and maybe Trumpet or Sax, learning the actual proper way.
What are the Music Theory Books you'd recommend? If you could recommend any other book based around Jazz or Classical I'dappreciate it as well.
Thanks in advance, boys.

https://www.musictheory.net/lessons is pretty nice for getting down basic theory, if you want to get into advanced stuff you should read The Complete Musician by Laitz.
Also check out https://mega.nz/#F!QWhx1KYY!mVS50gOr6g05MHTZr88v8g!1S4CRSCC for more theory stuff.
Don't really know much about those particular instruments though.
