What is currently your favorite piece of music?

Recommended Posts

Music for 18 Musicians, Steve Reich.

By A LONG SHOT. Section IIIA:

CHANGED MY LIFE. I thought it was the most amazing and beautiful pieces of music I had ever heard.

Really. Now I compose just like Reich. Sure its a bit out there, but I do.

Somehow I had Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.3 on my mp3 player, just the first movement, Andante. For about 2 years now and I really liked it. I actually had no idea who composed it as of yesterday. Awesome piece.

Boléro by Ravel. It's amazing!!!

Haha I've had that piece stuck in my head for the last few days. Currently though I'd have to say my favorite piece is Stravinsky's Firebird Finale. I played it in my high school orchestra, and the power is tremendous. I love every second of it.

I don't know if it counts because it isn't really a "piece" of music in the strict sense. But I have been listening to Coheed and Cambria's new album "Year of the Black Rainbow" non-stop.

So good. :phones:

Yah, bro. I really dig the 36 hour drum cadenza at the end. Good stuff.

Schoenberg - Woodwind Quintet

Reich - Octet

Schubert - Quintet in C

POSSIBLY - Mahler - 9th symphony (other than the 1st this is the only other Mahler symphony which so far maintains my interest throughout the whole work)

I guess i'll have to go with both Tchaickovsky's 4th symphony and Mahler's 2nd Symphony. Tchaick's 4th is filled with expression and Romanticism although I think the #rd Mvt of that sym. might either be a rip-off of J. Strauss Jr.'s Pizzicato Polka or Vice Versa. Mahler's 2nd is the perfect cross between a tone poem, an opera, and a symphony.

Some say that he should just make up his mind on what he wants to write, but this is a masterpiece. I especially enjoy the 3rd Mvt of that symphony. Check it out!

If any Mahler symphony was trying to be an opera it was the 8th. the 2nd has very little singing in it in the grand scheme of things.
