    i'm the same, i suppose. my knowledge of classical music is limited. i used to listen to vivaldi and bach when i was studying. and then i made a conscious effort to go to a classical performance and from there i discovered the opera and so on. but bartók, i have to agree, is wonderful. i like liszt as well, do you listen to him?

    from bartók, i only know his 6 dances in bulgarian rhythm from mikrokosmos, three rondos on slovak folk tunes, everything i found on youtube,... and i especially loved his marche funčbre from kossuth.

    there's a performance of his six string quartets in may, i think i'll try to go. i'm really curious to hear those.
    i have some liszt but i'm not very familiar with a lot of his work. also some debussy and ravel that i stole from my mother, who's a huge fan.

    i also love gustav mahler, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd symphonies in particular. a friend of mine gave me a cd of the 3rd (also called 'resurrection'), conducted by gilbert kaplan, and i've been in love ever since.

    as for bartók, i have the 'music for strings, percussion and celesta', the 6 string quartets, piano concertos 1 and 3 and the rhapsodies. i am also trying to get my hands on a good recording of mikrokosmos.

    i also got into some more contemporary classical like pierre boulez. he conducted one of the bartók recordings i have and that made me curious to listen to his stuff so i dl'd 'un marteau sans maître'

    the bartók quartets are definitely something you should see live. that's how i fell in love with his music in the first place.


    eta: also love arno. such a great, gruff voice. kinda like a belgian tom waits.

    Have never listened to Bartok that I know of but must check him out now.

    Listening to Deicide - Fuck your God.
    They're death metal, pretty brutal. fairly removed from classical music though the two genres, metal and classical music are closer than you might think.

    i dig piano music and liszt is/was a true virtuoso pianist. lazic played his 'venezia e napoli' (gondoliera, canzona & tarantella). really impressive if you hear it at a recital. and i absolutely love liszt's piano concerto's.

    i love debussy. did you know that they used debussy in the twilight movie? i found a couple of edward/bella vids with a 'clair de lune' soundtrack this week...

    as for ravel, i know his 'bolero'. i don't listen to him that often. my older brother, however, is a fanatic when it comes to ravel.

    i also love gustav mahler, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd symphonies in particular. a friend of mine gave me a cd of the 3rd (also called 'resurrection'), conducted by gilbert kaplan, and i've been in love ever since.
    i'm only familiar with mahler's first symphony which i like. i'll listen to his 2nd and 3rd this weekend.

    as for bartók, i have the 'music for strings, percussion and celesta', the 6 string quartets, piano concertos 1 and 3 and the rhapsodies. i am also trying to get my hands on a good recording of mikrokosmos.
    i'd love to hear the complete mikrokosmos.

    do you know dvořák? i'm trying to get my hands on a recording of his 'slavonic dances'. i fell in love with his music when i found his 'slavonic dances, op. 46 no. 1' on a 'best of' cd.

    i also got into some more contemporary classical like pierre boulez. he conducted one of the bartók recordings i have and that made me curious to listen to his stuff so i dl'd 'un marteau sans maître'
    never heard of him. i'll check out his music.

    even though it's relatively close to the exams, i'll go. it's an evening concert followed by a morning and afternoon one.

    eta: also love arno. such a great, gruff voice. kinda like a belgian tom waits.
    his live version of 'les yeux de ma mčre' is an all time favourite of mine.

    i went through a gothic/black metal phase a couple of years ago. and there's one album that i still listen to: tristania's 'beyond the veil'. it's a beautifully crafted gothic/symphonic metal album. i love the combination of the growling male voice, the high pitched female voice and the backing choirs and the classical influenced/derived symphony driven by keyboards. it has such a layered and melodic quality to it. a truly haunting piece of music.
