To me 9 - O U T S T A N D I N G   TY Beethoven and RP
5th, 7th, 9th; how many of us could have done this with even total hearing...point being Beethoven was simply a genius!!! His pieces always take my breath away...

I'm not sure, but I think Ludwig van was not quite deaf when he wrote the 5th. It has been said that the famous opening notes was the beating upon his door of the accelerating loss of hearing. He was deaf thereafter, on the 7th - 9th, the Missa Solemnis, and all else. His finest works of music were composed by a deaf man. Never fails to amaze and inspire me.

He was impaired while composing the 5th, but not completely deaf until the incredible 9th.

Every lover of rock and pop should give Carl Orff's  'Carmina Burana' a listen.



 
Yes indeed!!
And good grief, what has this guy put out lately? Resting on his laurels.

It's obviously a good symphony, but I heared it too many times. For many people this symphony has become the body of classical music. You say classical music. They say paddaddapaaam! It has become sort of cheesy to my ears.

There is a lot more crazy good classical music out there...

I just wonder...What IF this got slipped into the poppy FM station my 12 year-old daughter listens to? Would listeners even notice? I like to think they would have a moment of pre-teen clarity. Just wondering. REGARDLESS of that silly thought as well as how many times I've heard it: Thank you Bill, for playing this. Now on to Jimi Hendrix. Got it!

So you're essentially calling this the "Stairway to Heaven" of classical music?  {#Wink}

 
Exactly!

not my thing. also not into the whole "i know something about music because i listen to classical music sometimes" thing. still, a whole lot better than anything mozart put out.

 
Agree re, Mozart. Disagree re, "i know something about music because i listen to classical music sometimes". I don't care if I am classified as a musical pleb. I know what I like and I like Beethoven, Verdi, Vivaldi, Saint-Saens, Borodin and so on.
Also like Van Halen, Rolling Stones, Garth Brooks, CSNY, Dire Straits and so on.
Great to 'know' music (my son the cellist gives me an education in this respect). Much prefer to tune in and decide "yes, it is good" (as in Vivaldi or Van Halen) or "no, it is drivel" (why am I thinking U2 right now).
