Title: Let's hear some classical
Post by: Sir Masksalot on June 22, 2021, 08:28:58 PM
My favorite composer is Claude Debussy. No filmmaker could ever create a movie beautiful enough to justify
using his music in the soundtrack. My favorite works of his are Images Pour Orchestre, Jeux, La Mer, and
the one I listen to most often of all:

If you have a favorite, either recent or ancient, do offer a selection.

Beautiful! Love Debussy. "Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun" is a favorite.

Back in the '70s, Ravel's "La valse" was great pot smokin' music! Really trippy!  :)

The Bach piece is beautiful. One of my favorites. Connecting it to hard rock, Procol Harum uses part of it in "Repent Walpurgis," and Don Airey incorporates into the Rainbow song "Weiss Heim."

Mike Oldfield did a cover of "In Dulci Jubilo".

My first exposure to Beethoven's Fifth Symphony was on the NBC Nightly News over fifty years ago. I wrote NBC a letter to learn what the music was that introduced their newscast:

And for the last several decades NBC has been using this specially written music by John Williams.

A very good composition, but it's a very bad idea to use "white" as your COLOR choice for text. A minority of users (including myself) employ the white skin option for the forum's background. This means that whatever you posted in white is invisible to those posters.
