wow, a thread about music. original.
Ok, since threads about random songs will probably be locked, I'll -try- and be a bit more specific:

I really, really, enjoy music. I try to listen to as many different genres as I possibly can, because practice has taught me I like most of them.
(I'm gonna see DJ Marky & Stamina this week! (dnb4eva!!) and Felix da housecat & Miss Kitten too!)
soooo...
Does anybody know some good -classical- tunes? I like Wagner (even though he was a nazi (well not a literally a national-socialist, but still...))
also, I'd like to know more about Opera. Chances are I'll probably hate it, but you never know.

Ow and metal? I want to know more about metal. To give you an indication, Children of Bodom and Fear Factory \m/

... so much for being specific, but I hope someone will inspire me anyways wink-fix.gif

*edit* omg spelling error. the world ends.*

    Oh you want metal do ya? One word: Rhapsody.

    I think I could get a few people to back me up here in saying the Rhapsody is the greatest single effort mankind has ever undertaken.

    Been pimped often in regular media... but for classical music, how about some Vivaldi? There's a flavour for every season too! On my personal list, I also have Rossini (Barber Of Seville, William Tell Overture), as well as Frederic Chopin (Fantaisi, Minute Waltz).

    For some operaish music with a twist, I strongly suggest E.S. Posthumus... it's more like Rock-Opera... difficult for me to describe, just listen to 'Pompeii' and you'll understand.
    I have no mouth, and I must scream.

    http://www.botproductions.com/music/carmina.html
    Info aobut, as well as midis of the songs (yes, that is actualy legal).

    Most people know O Fortuna (though they do not know it as that), it was infact used for Marry Shelly's Frankenstien smile-fix.gif


    Oh, and b/c you like lots of stuff, here are some of my favorite things:
    http://www.digitallyimported.com/
    Fun, free, streaming Techno (and Jazz)

    And my personal Favorite Band is MSI (from my home town of NYC)
    they have no genre, you just gota listen to understand, though Punk is generaly what is closest (though it still misses)
    http://www.mindlessselfindulgence.com/ Warning: Exesive Bad Language, and other rather inapropriate things, however it is music, so what can yah do.
    or, just jump directly to here for some free downloads of their music smile-fix.gif

    Rhapsody is ****.

    Metal? Slayer, Pantera, Norther, Arch Enemy, Iced Earth, Manticora, and Symphony X for a few. Most of those are thrash, extreme thrash, or death metal. Iced Earth is dark power, Manticora is just...really frickin' good. And Symphony X...the best dark prog metal band on the face of the planet. Ever.

    Oh and...maybe Testament. They're okay. tounge.gif

    Eeee...I forgot Megadeth too. Just....sweet-**** true metal. Countdown to Extinction and Rust in Peace are their best albums.

    I admit I can't tell you exactly

    IT has something to do with the style of music.

    Forinstance, Madam Butterfly is an Opera
    Miss Siagon (a musical bassed off of the same story, and that happens to suck) is NOT.

    And if you ever told an operetic singer that Less Miss was an Opera they would stone you alive tounge.gif

    classical music you say? some of my personal favorites:

    Arcangello Corelli - Op 5 No. 12 Sonata in D minor 'La Follia'
    -> lots of variety, although mainly for violin, has other chamber strings as backup

    Antonio Vivaldi - Op 8 No. 1-4 'The four seasons'
    -> everyone should know this one.

    Johanne Sebastian Bach - Partita 2 in D minor 'Chaconne'
    -> another great violin song

    Felix Mendelssohn - Op 4 No. 2 Concerto in E Minor
    -> another one you should have heard before.

    Modeste Mussorgsky - Night on Bald Mountain

    Btw, try the Dvorak violin concertos too. They're pretty sublime. And for virtuoso cello, i like Tchaikovsky's "Pezzo Capriccioso" (op.62)

    Also, if you're into orchestral stuff, you could listen to some of the remixes on overclocked remix, or get some of the better game soundtracks - Xenogears, Grandia, and the Final Fantasy ones come to mind.
    Those have more of a cinematic flourish though.

    Classical: take a listen to Saint-Saens's "Organ Symphony" and Holst's "The Planets" (the Jupiter theme is pretty well-known, they use it in the Rugby World Cup anthem).

    To the guy who was asking about the difference between an opera and a musical - well, a musical is an opera without the acting, if you know what I mean tounge.gif

    I'm also a major trance addict (Ferry/Armin/Tiesto/PvD).

    Tchaikovsky was one of the most famous composers of all time. The Nutcracker Suite ring a bell?

    Dvorak was also one of the most famous composers ever.

    They're not bands, they're composers of classical music.

    Operas usually contain a number of very specific and well established forms (aria, recitative etc..)
    Musicals have no defined tradition yet, and so have no established forms, the are just music and talking (similar to opera i guess).

    both are similar, but really since opera is a much older art form it deserves the more 'respect'/ 'snobbery'.

    Tchaikovsky's violin concerto is probably my favorite piece of classical music.

    Beethoven's 9th symphony is wonderful, but I'm sure I didn't need to tell you that.

    Carmen is an amazing opera; one of my favorite recordings is a number of selections performed by violinist Anne Sophie-Mutter. She's wonderful.

    Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony (#8)

    There are tons more, but those are a good place to start. I second the recommendation of Dvorak, too - especially his 9th symphony, "New World."

    For opera, try Puccini: La Boheme, Tosca and Madame Buttefly. I've been fortunate enough to see good productions of the former two. Take a hanky though ... I can wholeheartedly recommend coil's choice of Bizet's Carmen - tour de force at its most magnificent.

    For light opera, try Gilbert & Sullivan. Great fun.

    Chopin.

    [edit] If you want to try something *really* off the wall, check out Django Reinhardt, especially when partnered by Stéphan Grapelli during the Hot Club de France era.
