Boléro by Ravel. It's amazing!!!

  • 2 weeks later...

Stravinsky's Rite of Spring

Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5

Bartok's Piano Concerto No. 2

Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra

Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 23 "Appassionata"

And this other piece I can't identify :/ I'm assuming the label is wrong, unless it's a Concerto the LAPO played other than the Bartok one, but I'm unable to find out.

Concerto For Orchestra by Los Angeles Philharmonic -- Listen to Free Music

If you happen to know, please PM me the title, composer and performer, if possible. Many thanks!

um, this IS the Bartok concerto for orchestra... how can it be one of your favourite pieces and you do not recognize the finale?

Capriccio espagnol, Rimsky-Korsakov

Concerto for Oboe, Strings, and Continuo in D Minor, Alessandro Marcello (except the C minor version is better IMHO)

Symphony No. 7, Beethoven (but really only the second movement)

About the Beethoven: Just listening to it, I actually like the first two movements, and the third to a point. But when I was actually playing it, the only movement I could stand was the second. Does anyone else notice how actually playing something and just listening to it tends to color perceptions of a piece? Or is it just me?

D minor is better. :whistling:

You're such an oboe-geek. Why don't you play it?

I do. I forgot to edit that into my profile, though :O

EDIT: I will say the D minor version has its merits, but I like the overall sound of the C minor version better because it sounds darker.

DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN, Richard Wagner (which is the perfect unicycle/music drama) and Symphony 6, Mahler (which is the perfect symphony). I also love "Le sacre du Printemps", Dvorak`s 4th symphony(NOT the eight, according to the new numbers) and Eine Alpensinfonie, Richard Strauss.

But above all DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yay, another one for the Ramone/Tokke/Sapphy-Maxy club.
