    To be precise, it's said to be that long, so it can hold the entire recording of the longest 9th Symphony version which is the one conducted by Furtwängler in 1951.

    Re: Most epic piece of classic/romantic music ?

    The march of the Yorck Korps, signature march of the highest German military ceremony: Großer Zapfenstreich. It's performed by the German guard batallion. That ceremony is only performed at special occasions, e.g. on great jubilees and anniversaries oir when a chancellor, president or minister of defense leaves his office. This march is exclusively played to open the ceremony and the term "exclusively" means exactly that: In the German army, only the Guard Batallion is allowed to play it and only during that ceremony. Old Prussian military tradition etc. etc.

    The march itself starts at 0:19.



    I usually don't like military marches that much. To my taste, they give a wrong feeling of grandeur (even though you probably know that I like grandeur), but this one is an exception because it's composed by Ludwig van Beethoven, the greatest composer of all times. No other army in the world but the German and Austrian has such a grand march and none else will ever have one, simply because Beethoven is permanently out of the march composition business.

    You Were UnHinged?
    It's a Classic not Classical.

    Ahem:

    Sergey Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2 - Montagues and Capulets. It's also commonly known as "Dance of the Knights."



    Video is

    What would happen if a sun-massed object passed through the asteroid belt?

    The simulation starts on January 1, 2013. Each second is about 30 days (29.97 to be exact).

    Unlike his last simulation, this one uses Newtonian physics instead of Kepler's Laws. With Kepler's Laws, we can approximate the orbits of the planets around only one body (the Sun), but there was no way we'd be able to see the effects of moving the sun or having more than one body. Here, the force of gravity is solved for and Runge-Kutta is used to integrate position.

    Mine fits better

    Well, let's assume this was meant to be a posting of Prokofiev's Dance of the Knights .

    Something Epic and Classical anyhow.





    He looks a bit unhinged by it all.

    Ready for a roller coaster of classical?

    I recently got ZREO Twilight Symphony. Omg, talk about epic!! Unfortunately, I haven't finished the game yet (LoZ Twlight Princess) so i have to wait on the third disc. But the first two are amazing, beautifully put together and harmonious! Here is a preview of what I got:

    Remember, Beethoven was completely deaf when he finished this... which is widely considered as the greatest masterpiece of orchestral music which has ever been composed! EPIC

    Great acting by Ed Harris. Ignore the chick.
    Did I write before that something else than 8:26+ was the greatest ending of anything ever? I was wrong! WRONG!

    I'm out of superlatives to describe it. Turn up the volume at maximum. MAXIMUM! GÖTTERFUNKEN!!
