Been liking classical lately. I don't know any artists, so I went to pandora. but it seems like all they have is really popular songs. Everything I've heard so far I've already heard in a movie or something. is there any good artists I should know about? or a good classical station on pandora?

when I hear that someone is getting into classical music, I usually point them towards something like Vivaldi's Four Seasons for starters.

each season (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) is its own lengthy concerto.

 

 

from there I'd go down the line of contemporary's.

no of course not.

but their body of work is considered the most influential and thus most popular.

 

if you want to learn about lesser known classical music or find modern-day symphony orchestra music, just Google it.

http://en.wikipedia....classical_music

 

this music still being played and written every day.

but after its renaissance era, the names of individual composers rarely gain any notoriety anymore.

I'm a huge fan of norwegian national romanticism, Grieg in particular:



Also his lyric pieces:

I also recommend finding a version of Mozart's requiem (there's even one with me on soundcloud), that's some f*cking beautiful music and text. Especially the crescendo on the words "judicandus homo reus", meaning man to be judged(this is in the Lacrimosa part). It's beautiful music that works incredibly well with the lyrics.

Yuck! The piano sounds like a midi keyboard in this particular video. Speaking of this piece, the third movement is an old favorite of mine:

Dont forget Paganini's 24 Caprices :

Unfortunately theres isnt enough records of Jascha Hifetz, so:

Also (and this is really really good):

Chopin is good, maybe Haydn too.

And for modern theres always the Zimmer guy....

 

Also Schyman

Give The Budapest Gypsy Orchestra a try, they are in my top five.

All time fav is Gayane, Ballet in 4 acts~Sabre Dance. Although I'm sure the listing is mixed up and the name is actually 'In Memory of Bihari'.
