Any classical music fans here?

Postby Pablito » Sat, 25 Jul 2009 6:55 pm

Hello,
I am classical music fan. Both listener and performer. I play piano and classical guitar. Probably with piano a bit more advanced.
Want to talk? Want to play? Want to listen? Want to attend concerts?

To be or not to be; that's the question!

Well, classical music - is something related to classical instruments with 12 tone tempered scale.
Oriental music I would call folk music.
I suppose in India and Pakistan in music schools students mostly study piano, violin, with Mozart, Beethoven & co.
Of course, classical and folk music overlaps and have big common areas.

Oh,
had a tough week.
Two violin students took their exams, and I accompanied them on piano.
Under burden of responsibility it is much more difficult to play.
But luckily I had two good students, so there wasn't faults from their performances.
Now I'll play for myself. Much more relaxing.

Thank you.
I am not alone here.
You like to hear classical music, or you can perform as well?
What kind of music do you like: instruments, composers, epochs?
Yesterday was a party at my friends, where I took part in a small concert. I played some piano-violins and guitar-violin duets.
Well, I don't play violin :)

Oh! just found this post. Should be nice concert. I'll come today (Saturday).

Now I am in period of severe guitar playing. Prepare some pieces to support group of violinists. So nervous. I like to play without extra burden of responsibility. But nervousness is almost inevitable for any music performance. We need to control it.

Granted common usage of the word "classical music" usually refers to Western Classical. However to be accurate classical music doesn't only refer to Mozart and Beethoven, or instruments with a equal tempered 12 tone scale - thats only as far as European classical music is concerned. In Asia there are also indigenous classical music traditions, such as Hindustani classical, Carnatic Classical, Thai Classical music as well.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_classical_music
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_T ... ical_music

These are different from folk music traditions in Asia, just as much as Romanian gypsy traditional music isn't thought of as being western classical music.

I like music in a big variety of styles, but mostly related to classical Western, if you like tradition. Music that is mostly taught in music schools in Europe, Japan, Singapore, India etc.
Should we raise this thread to high-brow discussion of definitions?
Classical music in common sense.
Although there is an article in Wikipedia about Indian Classical music, I doubt I can find anyone whom I can talk about it. Or maybe you are specialist in it?

ha! interesting how i see it the other way around, considering that asians (orientals) have being properly perfecting the art of musikal composition and instruments construction thousand of years before the euro "classical" period...

shepards musik using eastern mathematics to create harmony... very folky...
