    Classical music

    Anyone else think classical music slaps?

    Have recently developed a deep love of Paganini. I feel he was a man who understood profound grief and overwhelming beauty can exist as one

    He was known as the Devil's violinist because it was thought his skill level could only be obtained by selling his soul to the devil. So i especially like watching this absolute angel of a violinist get down on the devil's music : p

    When I was a kid classical music was just the track in a lot of Disney cartoons to me. Then I heard Tomita...



    He plays classical music using analog synthesizers, a room full of equipment.

    The last track of this album is The Great Gate of Kiev (Mussorgsky) which is amazing. When I hear a symphony playing it, there seems to be so much missing!

      Wendy Carlos Williams does that, too... I love the album Switched-On Bach. She did it all on a moog. She did the soundtrack for a clockwork orange. I love how crazy and disparate it sounds.

      I love classical music. I hated Mr. Holland's Opus, though.

        I know it's kind of obvious but Mozart's Requiem is probably my favorite all time piece of music in any genre.

          At first I misunderstood what you were saying, and thought Paganini, the man, was the person on the cover of the Youtube.

          That is cool that he understood profound grief and overwhelming beauty can exist as one.

          Saint Dominic used to tell people to pray for the grace to "love suffering".

          Life has a lot of suffering. Suicide rate in America is more high than in some third World Countries where people don't know where their next meal is coming from, and people are literally dying daily in those countries from starvation or water scarcity.

          The fact that our suicide rate is higher , would indicate that there are many people in America, ( richest superpower on earth, "land of the free"), many people suffering greater agony than people who don't know where their next meal will come from, or have no running water.

          America also has more complaints of Psychiatric disorders, mental illness, need for Psychiatric medication, than many other nations far more poor, so it goes to show money and technology doesn't mean more happy on average!

          But it also means, great suffering afflicts people everywhere on the hierarchy, as well as the rich and famous, so since suffering and pain is inevitable, the grace to see beauty, meaning, and something positive in the suffering, is a great grace/gift to have, which it sounds like Paganini had.

          Also, being called "Devil's violinist", because it is thought that his skill level could only be obtained by selling his soul to the Devil, is also a cool quality methinks!

            I don't know the guy or anything but that's what I infer from his music at any rate, lol.
            not really a talkie thread, but i will say, I think mental health and suicide is such an issue in America because as a culture we have this mentality that we're supposed to push through pain and feel good all the time. But life fuckin sucks sometimes.
            Suffering = pain + resistance. It's the resistance to pain that makes people so mentally unhealthy. Sometimes ya just gotta sit and feel it in order to heal.

          Lol, as soon as I saw the thread title and before I read the OP I was going to say:

          The trouble with classical music is there has been plenty of good stuff written the last 50 years, but not enough people are familiar so they keep going back to stuff thats 300 years old. If I see another video of an up and coming violinist trying to tackle Paganini 4 or 24, Im going to scream

              I think the OP is a bit wrong because everybody knows that Johnny could beat this.. Paganini.. If that's their real name.

              Johnny beat the Devil himself. Could easily handle his sidekick.

                  I understand, much of that music comes from a time when people were dueling with swords to settle scores. However, drugs were legal and unregulated, so they didn't have the same kinds of turf wars. It was usually over money, women and slights. Those are what they had in common with today's dueling sort of people.

                Slaps need claps, snare, kick, or at least some percussion. So no, classical music doesn't slap.

                I was looking for a different version of Flight of the Bumblebee and ran across this:



                This child could give Ian Anderson a lesson!
