Music I recently listened to
The last piece of music composed by Tchaikovsky. It’s complicated by his life experience. He expressed stressfulness, happiness and love, and finally returned to tragic ending. It is a musical autobiography. I love it so much.
I like No.3 more. I think it has the most beautiful melody among 9 pieces by Mahler (No.10 was actually incomplete). Especially the last movement. It starts with string set quartet and gradually includes other parts in the orchestra. It just like telling people what is love.
I don’t know a lot about it, but though the melody is not that fancy, it complicate the mindset and the reality. Some how mix reality with personal emotion and blurred it.
It’s so good. I like it so much! Though it doesn’t represent the hardest piece Paganini ever composed, it combined beauty with technical difficulties and made the performance more “Performance.”
It is one of the piece that people most familiar with but can’t tell the name. It is a representative piece of the Romantic period.
This is a Symphonic poem. Unlike the usual music that compliments the country with nationalism, this poem expresses the composer’s attachment to the state. The second theme (Die Moldau) is the most famous one in this work.
Recently, I’m practicing this piece. It contains lots of element that can still be found in popular music. I like it.
Radical music, but I still like its melody.
Interestingly, there is a part of this music that was modified from French Anthem.
Hard hard hard hard to practice, but still beautiful.
