Staples.. I guess

Recommended Posts

I was wondering.

I have a few pieces that I always go back to after I discover a lot of new music.

These are The Rite of Spring, The Planets Suite, Dvorak New World Symphony, Beethoven 7, The Wall-E soundtrack.

Does anyone else have these staples in their listening repertoire?

A smattering of U2 albums: The Joshua Tree, All That You Can't Leave Behind, and The Unforgettable Fire mostly.

Yeah, I'm mostly a choral composer, so I always go back to Biebl's Ave Maria. It's so simple, but it's elegance always strikes me. I also tend to revisit pieces by Zane Randall Stroope. IMHO, just as Whitacre uses dissonance in such great ways, I find that Stroope does the same with consonance.
