What Are You Listening To This Month? (November)

  • Nov 30, 2012 · 11:45 PM

This is not a meetup. Instead, here is a chance for you to recommend to each other music you've heard recently.  This is for the month of November.


You can either place the name of the work in the "add a comment" section when you RSVP yes, or at the bottom of the page, under "get the conversation started".


You can also post a link to the music you are referring to in the "get the conversation started" section below. A good place to find music links would be to go to www.youtube.com and type in the name of the work.  Copy the link, and paste it here.  You could also link to www.amazon.com, but that only gives you snippets of music.

    I loved the LA Phil last week -- Grieg Piano Concerto and Shostakovich Symphony #10. Fabulous both! Also, I've been exploring Lutoslawski on headphones while I work ... thanks to naxosmusiclibrary.com and spotify.com

      Just listened to Brahms Symphony No. 1 for the first time a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it. And of course Shostakovich's No. 5 is "epic" through and through.

      Brahms Symphony No. 1 was the first classical LP I bought when I was 14 years old and that turn me onto classical music forever

    I listen to Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5 at least three times a week. It's perfect for this weather.

    Pandora stations I'm listening to this month include: Helen Jane Long, Max Richter, Hans Zimmerman, Philip Glass, Philip Wesley, Yann Tiersen, Yanni, Yiruma, Yo Yo Ma. Others I like that are more not exactly classical music: William Orbit, Yuri Sazonoff, and Ambient. =)

    Max Richter remixed Vivaldi's Four Seasons. It's surprisingly good and interesting. Not like Vivaldi to a dance beat but dissected and recomposed.

      I also really like Max Richter. It seems simplistic yet eventful.

    One musician I listen to regularly is Helen Jane Long. One song I like is Porcelain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0c0FBSUd1Hk

    Steve Reich (the composer) is one of the pianists in the video I posted. He's the one with the baseball cap.

    Music for 18 Musicians is one of my favorites. After several listens, Verlaerte Nacht has grown on me.

    Brahms Symphony No.1
    Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
    Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

    "Music for 18 Musicians" by Steve Reich. One of the best known works of minimalist music. Sounds quite contemporary, even though it was written nearly 40 years ago.
