@Agent1741,
Well, one has to have great patience to listen to Bolero in the first place.

@coluber2001,
True but funnily enough I am not really a patient man!

@Agent1741,
I think music has a way of cutting through that. It puts you in the moment, because in music there's nothing else but the moment.

The most accessible and beautiful movement of mahler's 6th Symphony. I hope you've got good speakers or earphones.

@coluber2001,
I recently got Audioengine 2+, and the music sounds great! Thanks for sharing. My wife and I used to listen to the San Francisco Symphony for some 13 years with season tickets, but I got tired of driving into the city - the 40 miles each way. I had the opportunity to go to a concert in London, at the Barbican, to listen to Jerry Goldsmith's orchestra. They played music from all the movies he provided the music in.

The last movement in mahler's 6th Symphony calls for an instrument called the hammer. This has to be built by the orchestra. It's struck twice in the last movement.

This is the second movement from Rachmaninoff's first Piano Sonata. This is an excellent introduction to Rachmaninoff as it is easily accessible and incredibly beautiful. To skip the interview start at 4 minutes.

This is Danish composer Carl Nielsen's 5th Symphony, an underrated composer and one of the greatest pieces of music of the 20th century in a stunning performance by an American genius, Leonard Bernstein.

Carl Nielsen's 5th Symphony: an enormous statement of internal and external conflict and resolution. Written in Denmark in 1922.

Shostakovich, Symphony # 3 "The First of May"

This Symphony is seldomly performed. It's difficult and poses many challenges for instrumentalists. It's very passionate, frenzied, and emotional and will tear your heart into pieces. This performance is by a university symphony orchestra and there are many errors, especially in the brass and horn section, but it's very worthwhile listening to especially today, the 1st of May.

It's obligatory that's you watch and listen to the first 3 minutes of this opera, The Love of Three Oranges by Prokofiev. Well, only obligatory if you want a laugh. In the first 3 minutes a man comes on stage and directs the audience to the cards they possess, a sort of smell-o-vision. This is humor that only the English would produce and appreciate.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to watch the opera because there are no subtitles because it is sung in English, and they assume you can understand, which, of course, you can't, because it's impossible.

Here is a short fragment of an opera by Shostakovich, "The Nose". A bureaucrat complains about a pimple on his nose, and it jumps off and runs away. The whole Opera is about him trying to find his nose. One critic said the opera consists of 2 hours of cussing.


2 1/2 minute fragment of Shostakovich's opera, "The Nose". The bureaucrat sleeps disturbingly and noisily like he's got sleep apnea. Funny raucous noises from the brass section of the orchestra.
