    Default The Orchestral Music appreciation thread.

    This thread is for appreciation of orchestral music. As far as music goes, the amount of energy and passion that goes into an orchestral performance is far greater than any other form of music and it shows.

    I'd like to propose just a few rules:
    - This is for orchestral music only. Note the title does not say "classical" music, it says "orchestral" music.
    - You must have listened to the piece you mention on the day that you post.
    - Feel free to post links. But you are not obligated to post any links to the work in question, especially if it hasn't been uploaded to Youtube or whatever.

    I love classical music with a great passion but opera is where my heart lies.

    I do enjoy some orchestral works though. A new favourite of mine is Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto in E Minor.

    Here's the 1st movement as interpreted by Yo-Yo Ma and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra with Daniel Barenboim!

    I guess you wouldn't mind piano concertos..? Martha Argerich is my favorite pianist (afaik).

    Martha Argerich is an incredible performer. So few have such a gift.

    this DVD is full of interviews. It's worth watching.

    I once saw a Youtube video of Martha Argerich playing Prokofiev. I had never, before seeing that, thought that I could describe an almost 70yr-old woman as sexy.

    Homegirl worked that piano.

    Today I enjoyed listening to Wagner's "The Ring" performed without words by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (1988). I must admit I am not a fan of operatic singing and so I find these "without words" interpretations intriguing.

    Just a note on the thread though, tone down the discussion about pianists and more on the orchestras and orchestral works. There are already threads dedicated towards piano and classical music appreciation, but this one is focused on orchestral music.

    I know! She is incredible, and I know what you mean about sexy. She seems ageless...

    You are not powerless, you just need to accept your power for what it is, a part of the whole, no one man can save the world, but you can be a light to those who envelope themselves in darkness, The candle that sparks the inferno.
