Welcome to Symphony Hall!

This forum is for all to discuss classical music and share their favorite composers and their music. Subjects can range from the technical (although it may be difficult to find anyone interested) to simple appreciation of a musical piece.

Hopefully you will find something of interest to you. This forum will only be as good as the participants.

Although one would be hard-pressed to find any musical subject so egregious that heated words need be exchanged, unlike some classical musicians. Please, this forum is open to all, young or old, a beginning violin player to an experienced violinist, it is hoped that everyone will find something.

The Celtic Radio's Terms of Service (TOS) are in effect here.

Good luck, my 1st and last visit... I can not stand classical music, just my humble opinion.

Thanks for visiting. You may be surprised sometime. You already have listened to classical music if you watch commercials or even cartoons.

I will always think of Bugs Bunny floating down a river with this one.

"Bugs Bunny floating down a river"

How you get that one? I love Brahms Lullaby. I grew up with it as a child and have always sung or played it for my children. It's one of the greatest pieces of music to help sooth a fussy baby.

There's a famous Warner Bros. cartoon with the old lady who owns Tweetie. Everytime she arrives on the scene they play a Mozart piano sonata.

I had to post this here since a Java scripting error occurs when I tried to post on your cartoon thread

Stevenpd, Thanks for starting this forum although it does fall a bit outside the typical Celtic Radio Genre all here are used to it is nice to be able to read others opinions on much of the music which paved the way for pretty much everything anyone listens too.

One of my favorites and probably most popular composers is Vivaldi, no matter what mood I am in listening to the four seasons always puts me more at ease. This may be a fairly common effect and in part why it was one of the first songs used as a ring tone

Vivaldi

You're welcome.

It was started with the intent that it does not replace Celtic Music but enhances the experience of Celtic Music.

Vivaldi's "Four Season's" suite of concerti are also some of my favorite pieces too.

[QUOTE=stevenpd,05-Sep-2009, 11:52 AM] Thanks for visiting. You may be surprised sometime. You already have listened to classical music if you watch commercials or even cartoons.




Also, the "lone Ranger" theme song of my youth, though I did not know it at the time.

Some time ago when vinyl was popular I had a boxed collection of Beethoven but when I switched to tape and then to CD, I gave them away and never replaced them. It is not my favorite music but I will listen to it.

I plan to check back from time to time.

Rossini's "William Tell Overture" is one of the more famous classical pieces played for a variety of modern reasons. I was trying to pint out a more subtle performance of a classical piece.

I was reminiscing about my very first album. It just happened to be Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. It had a white cover with a yellow pacth with a few notes imposed over everything. It came out at the time the Beatles came to America. I preferred Beethoven.

The old commercial for Quaker Puffed Wheat used Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture as back ground music.

Do you remember who the conductor was? I had a rendition of the 5th about the same time, well my parents did (1963) and I believe it was Leonard Bernstein and the NY Philharmonic. I liked that rendition, didn't match von Karajan but was good.

Speaking of the Beatles, this is interesting. I saw an interview with Sir McCartney about how he wrote his song Blackbird. Years ago he and George Harrison had learned some Bach on the guitar after music critics accused them of not being able to play or not knowing anything about classical or serious music. Later while he was trying to remember how to play it, he couldn't. What he remembered was close but wrong, but the chord progression evolved into the begining of Blackbird.

I'd like to say thanks for starting this thread too Steven. Not many places I'm aware of where you can discuss Classical Music.

Try as I might, I can not remember any of their advertising.

I couldn't find an example of the Quaker commercials but I did find this gem:



Hi Oo Silver And Away (with the William Tell Overture which was in the public domain and the producers didn't have to pay any copywrite fees).
