Thanks, and no, unfortunately I haven't obtained the sheet music for it yet. I've been working on other pieces.

Varese was commissioned to write a piece for the first performance of a platinum flute. The density of platinum is 21.5 grams/cc which is why he named it so.

Who's bitching? No need to be condescending.

I certainly might be condescending but I'm hardly alone.

I thought you knew that already, since I think you were going to tell me?

You also don't need to insult other members.

Why should I research when I can just get someone to tell me the answer?

No nonononono. I'm not buying this s-hit anymore. Now you can go to the Spill Your Guts thread and it is full of people insulting other people. Nothing is said about that. Don't tell me it's ok to do it on that thread only. Insulting is insulting--period. If it's not ok to do it here, it's not ok to do it anywhere. And you know it. I don't like this selective way of enforcing the rules. Either enforce them or don't. You even signaled that it would be ok to have hypothetical insult thread and that absolutely does not make any sense if insulting is not allowed. Insults are insults. Period. Either enforce the rules or don't. But don't enforce them on some people and not others.

I would say the most difficult ones would be:

Britten
Schoenberg
Sibelius

Gubaidulina - Chaconne - YouTube


Liszt - Mephisto Waltz No. 1, S. 514 [André Laplante] - YouTube

And of course, my favorite from Beethoven:


Ludwig van Beethoven - Piano Sonata No. 23 "Appassionata", Op. 57 [Complete] (Piano Solo) - YouTube

Songs that sound like the opening for "Beyond" by Daft Punk.

Driveyourcardowntothesea, I believe (no pun intended) you said you had a few ideas?

I think you meant "Beyond."

Anyway, without knowing exactly what it is in that opening that tickles your funny bone (the dramatics? the specific melody?), here are a few suggestions. To be honest that opening sounds like probably a dozen film scores by John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith or a number of other modern composers. I'll have more later but here are a few to get you started.

You will probably have to turn your volume up for these:

The opening movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony is about as dramatic as you can get. This is my favorite recording of it.


The opening to Ferde Grofe's Grand Canyon Suite is somewhat similar, though you've got to wait a couple minutes for the woodwinds to build up to get to the part I'm thinking of (which starts at the 2:18 mark):

^
That opening literally brings tears to my eyes.

I'll have more later.

Here's another one I was looking for. Just listen until the 8:14 spot - one of the most dramatic openings in music ever. Gotta wait, it builds up to the part I have in mind.



Don't know if this fits your criteria. Much darker and brooding, but kinda-sorta the same thing.


^
If you like that, I've got some Rachmaninov you'd probably like too.

This one is probably closest to the Daft Punk piece I can think off the top of my head, aside from some movie scores:



Perhaps you already know this, but Prokofiev in general has lots of bouncy notes.

I really cbf listening to Classical, but I really want to get into it. For some reason.

The only dude I can listen to the whole way through is Moondog --- Moondog (1969)

Something along those line, please!
