What Music are you looking for or listening to this week? (23/07/2023)


Recommended Posts


Lets try this again.

The general outline is below (Copied from r/rock and slightly modified)

  1. Post whatever you've been listening to lately, whether its a piece you've been listening to a lot, or a new piece you've discovered, it doesn't matter, post it.
  2. This is where you can post all requests and recommendations.
  3. If you're looking for a recommendation give a description/music link/composer so that other people will know what you want.
  4. Example: "I want to hear an composer that sounds like Tchaikovsky" (you can get more specific but this is usually enough) - and then hopefully someone will respond with recommendations X, Y, and Z.
  5. You can also leave a top level comment recommending an composer/school that you think others might like if they like X, Y, and Z.
  6. The more descriptive you guys are, the easier it is to help you find what you want. Just stating a composer's name isn't that helpful since you might only like one specific aspect of that composer's music.

Hey Arjuna,

This week I'm reading Peter Williams's biography on Bach, so I'm listening to quite a number of Bach's piece I'd previously unheard of, like this one:

This is one full of decorations and chromaticism!

This one is an early Bach but it already shows how Bach is capable of maintaining different styles!

And Anderszewski... I have heard his recording of Partita no.2 before but I was so fascinated in it yesterday.... What a touch, articulation and voicing that is! Especially the Capriccio!

For Tchaikovsy (your pfp), I discovered an unheard Symphonic Poem by him, and it's great!

I'm also in love with Bartok Quratet these few weeks... Looks like our world is growing worse towards Bartok's time and I'm getting much deeper to him. My fav. of him now is his 6th String Quartet:

Well, besides delving into the Fugues..., right now I'm listening to works from the last part of Stravinsky's production.
Since the death of Schönberg, Stravinsky explored atonalism and dodecaphonism and ended up designing his own system of rotational matrices.
So I'm trying to look for information and understand how this system works... And try to use it.

So people on discord might already know this, but I have been trying to play a bit of the Piano collections from Kingdom Hearts, the the recent ones would be:

1. Hand in Hand - this is the action theme of one of the earliest areas in the game. I like the harmonic changes very much


Game soundtrack (original version): https://youtu.be/H0qgrnqB5vk  

2. A Very Small Wish (I have not attempted the monstrous "Monstro" part yet) - from the "Pinocchio" world


Original version: https://youtu.be/41BWUXcYXuU

3. Night of Fate - the first encounter to the main enemy encounters

I've been listening to a lot of your music this week and last to help me with my videos. Here are some of the compositions I've listened to. These pieces were either used in my latest videos or I was highly considering making use of them (all opt in):

I've also listened to parts of Chopin's Fantasie Impromptu and Piano Concerto 2.

been listening for some new inspiration and I found the following:

Fleeting Words from Nier: Replicant ver. 2.22 https://youtu.be/NRF2VjP7vTU

Shadowlord from Nier: Replicant ver. 2.22 https://youtu.be/D0XsU4zjaus

Fleeting Shadows (a combination of the two above) https://youtu.be/mNpO3qWl4mo

Although video game music isn't for everyone's enjoyment, I love these two songs and also the third song and how this person combined the two.
