Lyrics don't distract me anyway. This was and is my favourite study/focus piece

EVen I can admit a smoky sax solo can make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

What about silent movies?

Also, I think you may be labouring under a misapprehension here. Most of the composers you've spoken of in the last few posts are not classical composers. They compose classical-like music, but that doesn't mean it is classical. I think you'd be hard pressed to find too many movies which rely on a completely or even partially actual classical soundtrack. The music prevalent in films these days does indeed often sound classical, but that doesn't make it classical. Williams, Jarre, Barry etc are all working in this field and you couldn't call them classical composers. If anything, they're film composers. They often use classical tropes, but they're not writing classical music.

Do you mean Classical Period music or just classical music?

Also, when people who don't like or listen to jazz think the genre doesn't portray emotion well, that tells you a lot about how uninformed that opinion is.

There's lots of type of jazz and some of it just technical wankery that's not very interesting in terms of melodic expression, so I could see how someone would think all jazz is like that.

I have really been stuck on Take Five lately. It's not particularly obscure, but it's 5/4 so that's fun.

It's a very complex question, then the idea of anything being relevant in the first place. Relevant to whom?

Contemporary classical music is definitely relevant but not back up as much as it NEEDS to be. If you don't back up the composers that are composing, living and innovating currently, then the genre is doomed for museum disposal.

Classical music is like every genre, it EVOLVES. My username gives a que to one of the many directions it's gone in the past 50 years, all incredible music!

Yes it's relevant, but relevancy is complicated. Is Beethoven relevant for instance? his style is old, dated and very simplistic compared to the music of today, is he relevant? I don't know

Why are you posting here?

I've just seen your posts and the links you've left at the bottom.

You're mentally ill. You're a deeply, frighteningly disturbed individual.

Those links describes acts that I could never have even imagined in all of the many years of my life. Not ever.

This is more than disgusting - it's the effluvia of a profoundly disturbed mind.

I sincerely wish that the moderators would permanently ban you from this site.
