    Do we have a thread for this type of music yet? Do people even listen to this music?

    I'm mainly into artists like Olafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, A Winged Victory for the Sudden, Johann Johannsson, etc. Some of this music is similar to the ambient thread, but I thought it deserved it's own

    Saw Johann Johannsson live last night; was absolutely incredible. 2 cellos, 3 violins, and Johann on the piano, while also controlling the electronic sounds.

    Sometimes I`m listening classical music, mostly Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky.

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    Can this thread get a revival? Been listening to Schubert and Clara Schumann all day.

    Oh Yes! Here for the noise!

    All 9 shostakovich symphonies are incredible.

    Chopins Concerto number 2 in F minor is one of my favorite pieces of all time

    Schubers unfinished symphony rules

    Beethoven 5 obviously slays

    Wagner's Tristan and Isolde crushes

    This performance melts my face everytime, the pain the sorrow the anguish when the piano first enters.. just too good

    I remember there was this composer or something that made this piece, where he knew people would fall asleep/into a trance during the induction. So he added something to scare them awake.

    I was in 8th grade when I heard it, but I remember by teacher telling us about the part beforehand and it STILL scared the shit out of me when I heard it.

    Wish I could remember who it was. I love when songs do that, particularly Luca by Brand New

    so i purposefully sequenced two songs in my bands EP to do this, the end of the song Hear The sound which is super quiet and has a fading guitar part to the beginning of the song The Consequence which may be the loudest moment on the record ha. Anyway the piece you are referring to is the second movement of a Haydn Symphony, I think its in the 90s maybe 94? I believe its called the surprise symphony

    Any LOTR fans here, he wrote a multi movement lord of the rings symphony that pretty much includes all of the great pieces from all three pieces, so you can enjoy them without listening to the 9 hours worth of soundtrack material hah

    Haha yeah I should; a lot of the artists I mentioned hit both sides of the line between classical and ambient, so kind of hard to classify them as one or the other, but yeah I should venture into that thread more
  17. Horrorca


    more than that, we discuss stuff there that goes beyond ambient really... a lot of experimental and drone and noise and electronic stuff gets discussed there for lack of a better thread


    but yeah, swing by!

    Her last two albums have been fantastic; this was a great live performance.

    The video she put out for "F Major" is fantastic

    I know this post is like 4 years old, but I believe the piece you’re talking about is Haydn’s “Surprise Symphony” where it’s really childlike and playful then suddenly BANG the whole orchestra comes in tutti style.

    This is your life, are you who you want to be?

    Just stumbled upon Eric Christian's Promenade d'automne. Beautiful stuff.
