    I could agree if we were talking about genres as in "post-pop neo-industrial folkcore" but classical is pretty broad, like electronic and country

    Of course, all music is a matter of personal taste, and similarly, if I never hear Glass or Stockhausen again it will be too soon, but I must say that Schoenberg's Transfigured Night is quite beautiful in parts. I must admit that I am not a devotee of modern serious music, many of the composers of which appear more interested in being clever than musical.

    However, the late Romantics, like Mahler, were both clever and musical. Who could fail to be excited by the finale from his 2nd symphony (The Resurrection)? http://youtu.be/rECVyN5D60I

    Or fail to be transported by the Adagietto from his 5th Symphony? http://youtu.be/aUdmaXpuf8M

    PS: Can someone tell me how to get the YouTube videos to show as a video, not just an URL, in a post?

    When you hit the reply button, up the top of the reply box there's a row of buttons, second from the right is the insert video button, hit that, paste the URL into the box that pops up, and away you go.

    You click the "Insert Video" icon (before "Quote", the last icon) but sometimes it shows and sometimes it says that you have to go to YouTube to watch it.

    Thanks, I thought that's what I did - I'll try again with the Liebestod from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. Probably the most archetypical piece of chromatic music in existence.



    Great - thanks again!

    I've heard some music that may almost fit that genre... marylin manson has a few songs like that, but they're actually half decent.

    Re: Classical music

    I don't listen to it all that often, but I love classical music. There's some beautiful stuff out there. Vivaldi is a particular favorite of mine, since I grew up playing the violin.

    I didn't say I hated it, only that I tended to find it annoying, unless its coupled with something to bring about the mood it was trying to invoke, such as a movie. Generally when I listen to music, I want it to invoke something, so far classical music has failed to do it because there is no base beat to get the part of me that is always thinking, designing, and creating to shut up long enough for my emotions to roam freely.
