Lick Me in the Arse

#1 Post by Octavious » Wed Mar 24, 2021 4:32 pm

Yes, you've guessed it! It's the webDip classical music thread!

Too often the webDip forum has been accused (quite wrongly in my opinion) of appealing to enthusiasts of base topics of conversation. So let's take this opportunity cast that aside for a moment of indulgence in highbrow culture. A place to post our favourite tunes from the rich tapestry of global civilisation.

And what better place to start than with "Leck mich im Arsch" (Lick Me in the Arse)? One of Mozart's more playful canons to come out of Vienna in the late 1700s. Enjoy, and feel free to post your own!

Truly a masterpiece.

And now for a lesser known piece in the musical world, Johann Nepomuk Hummel's Piano Concerto No.2 in A minor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYr7z1RYgaM

Hummel studied with Mozart for two years when he was a boy, and was later one of the best pianists in Europe who rivaled Beethoven, but he is unfortunately forgotten by most today, a fate that he does not deserve.

When I saw the title of the thread, I figured it was something else and immediately thought I should share that Mozart. Curiously, I'm afraid I had never listened to it with due attention!

I've recently listened to a couple of Hummel concerti (using the pandemic to listen to new composers, at times), and thoroughly agree with Ferdack's assessment on his skill and fate, but I'll relisten to this one in a bit!

For the time being, my share is this masterpiece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aO5fLLHj55k

Remembered the concerto in the first four bars :). It is indeed a work of major significance! I recall being very impressed by the elements clearly predating romantic characteristics.

I remember when I first listened to his works, and thinking to myself, so that's where Chopin got some of his style from.

Talking about Chopin and rarely played piano concerti, I'd like to ask your opinions on Scriabin's concerto: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ9fKazNnI4 !

That last one was perhaps less rare, but always beautiful. Hence let me add this one

Ooh goodie, this seems like a fun thread. I'm listening to the Hummel right now, and I have to say, it's a very fine work.

So while I'm doing that I'd like to pitch in with a couple of my favourites.

Vasily Kallinikov's first symphony is in my opinion comparable to the greatest symphonies, but it is often overlooked. Unfortunately Kalinnikov died at a relatively young age before composing much more music.

Sibelius' Andante Festivo is the piece of music that has emotionally connected with me the most. It's achingly beautiful, slow and melancholy (no, it is not festive). Just whatever you do, don't listen to a recording where they actually take it at andante tempo (4m30s), it loses so much in the process. 5m30s is the minimum acceptable length, and despite being on rather old recording equipment, Sibelius conducting it is still my personal favourite.

(Also Tchaikovsky is the best composer, not one of those other 3)

This thread is not what I expected. But I’m going to check out all this music!

Off on a slight tangent on the original theme, but rather fun so I couldn't resist posting ;)

I always appreciate a good bit of classical/romantic piano music to explore (especially with full score included in the video, as it helps a long the analysis, thank you Ferdack!), and Octavious's comedic diversion was much appreciated as well.

Certainly most of you (if not absolutely all) who bother with a thread like this one are familiar with Beethoven's sonata quasi una fantasia (op. 27 no. 2, piano sonata No. 14 in C# minor, "Moonlight") but I'm curious if you have a favorite recording to recommend. So far I tend to oscillate between Claudio Arrau's contemplative beauty of a performance and Glenn Gould's admittedly messy tour-de-force.

Arrau: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0UrRWyIZ74
Gould: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoP4lK1drrA

I am pleased to read the enthusiastic posts from young Whippersnappers who have a passionate interest in classical music. I like listening to classical music occasionally when I feel estranged from our Bwave New World, for example when I am driving in the city and everyone else is dashing around & about.
My all time favourite is the 1812, because it has GUNFIRE! Guns firing is a wonderful thing to have in music, there's just not enough in modern music, imho. Hopefully when Beyonce gets her freedom she will.be allowed to have artillery firing in her music when she is free. That's something to anticipate with joy.
If I put the 1812 on to play at a certain place on my drive from Flyblown Gully by the Sea to Adelaide then the gunfire coincides with my arrival in the CBD.
I believe that at it's first performance in Russia the troops manning the cannon got so enthusiastic (vodka consumed assisting) they damaged a cathedral & other buildings with cannon fire. That's proper classical music of the highest order in my opinion, music that enables artillery firing and real destruction.
