thread needs more love solfege
Sorry for posting a link involving a bunch of Germans singing it, I always get German links first on my Youtube account .
It's among my favourite choir pieces, but I don't think that it's better than Wagner's Pilgerchor. It's a bit too much like Mozart IMO, but that's just my personal taste.
Nice thread. Here's a few that haven't been mentioned.
Couple excerpts from Mahler's 2nd Symphony:
Arnold Bax's Tintagel, great intro:
Can't have an epic thread without a coda to a Bruckner Symphony (slow build up to the climax):
Doing the entire missa with our choir for easter:
This is my favourite of them, but the rest is pretty cool too.
A wonderous place youtube is to find gems of musical art.
Johann Sebastian Bach Cello suite #1 [Prelude] (BWV 1007)
Johann Sebastian Bach Cello suite #5 [Prelude] (BWV 1011)
Some searching on youtube has yielded no result,
in finding a good lute version of this piece.

Beethoven's 3rd symphony "Eroica", the grand finale, my absolute favourite from Beethoven.
This is the greatest ending of anything which has ever been composed (2:30+ and in particular, 4:50+), it knocks you off the chair when hearing it for the first time! The finale of the 9th can compare with it, but nothing else even begins at that! Turn the volume up! And have a look at the contrabass player, that's Rock'n Roll!
Haydn: Everything is different from today!
After Beethoven died, many composers didn't dare to compose symphonies for some time because of Beethoven's mind-blowing creations, fearing the inevitable comparisons with them at that time. This is one of the reasons why!
From that to this
and next weekend on a IPad
Nice! It weuld sound even better if that guy had 4 hands
This piece is the godfather of heavy metal guitar solos.
The following pieces have been posted before, but these come with the awesome pictures of Arthur Rackham.
Ride of the Valkyries. Conducted by Furtwängler.
Lohengrin prelude. Conduted by Klemperer.
Composed by Wagner, of course.
