Classical and Film Musicbecause it's sophisticated
Posted 23 October 2008 - 10:10 AM
I also want to get into more contemporary composers. I don't know if they're technically considered classical, neo-classical or what, but they're definitely influenced by classical greats. It seems like a lot of these people score films too and I think it goes hand in hand in a lot of aspects.
The problem with delving deeper into this realm of music is that there's a daunting amount of material from the length of individual pieces to the complete works of composers themselves. Feel free to share your favorite works, soundtracks, composers...etc.

Not really what I was thinking of, but yea the Kill Bill soundtrack is the shit. And apparently he's gonna be directing, acting, and scoring a kung-fu movie with help from Quentin Tarantino. Should be interesting.

was just watching this with the lady.
does Detektivbyrån do any of that music?
holy wikipedia, batman....
no, says wiki... however, it also says:
so on that note, if you like the Amelie soundtrack, check out the band Detektivbyrån. (their song Nattöppet was featured on some cell phone company commercial... can't remember which).

also props to whoever said Shostakovich
Bela Bartok is out of this world good. I love playing Shostakovich, but I don't really like listening to it.
I really like Gustav Mahler, especially The Planets. Igor Stravinsky is good, just because he's insane, and he threw away the thought that you need a standard time or key signature.
If you want a good example of classical music in electronic music, check Venetian Snares' Rossz csillag alatt született. Beautifully done.
