Your Favorite Classical and Opera

We have a Morbid Classical Music thread, but no Favorite Classical thread .

The violin's sound is light dancing, fire crackling, the wind's caress...

WORD MADE FLESH.— The relationship between thought and language is the relationship between a wound and its scar.

-Hans Abendroth

Re: Your Favorite Classical and Opera

This, among many others:


Your fall should be like the fall of mountains. But I was before mountains. I was in the beginning, and shall be forever. The first and the last. The world come full circle. I am not the wheel. I am the hand that turns the wheel. I am Time, the Destroyer. I was the wind and the stars before this. Before planets. Before heaven and hell. And when all is done, I will be wind again, to blow this world as dust back into endless space. To me the coming and going of Man is as nothing.

Re: Your Favorite Classical and Opera

Regarding opera, my all-time favorite is Strauss' Salome. No other opera achieves anything like the macabre and ghoulish splendor of the final aria of Salome, in which the titular heroine, being presented with the decapitated head of John the Baptist, for whom she has a creepy erotic obsession, serenades said decapitated head with the most morbid, decadent, and exquisite aria in all of opera.

- Leszek (Lech) Jankowski just might be the greatest underappreciated composer working today; his scores for the films of the Quay Brothers stand as masterpieces in their own right.

Two sublime pieces.

They were watching, out there past men's knowing, where stars are drowning and whales ferry their vast souls through the black and seamless sea.”
― Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West
