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!
