What is a romantic?

- the particular state, both physical and mental, which occurs during sunsets, full moons or walks on the beach. Often accompanied by a glass of wine, violin music, and candle light. Sometimes described as hopeless.

What is a Romantic?

- part of a system designed by historians to Rolodex history into some kind of chronological order. Convenient, but creatively stifling.

Is Bach a C20th composer?

- maybe. but probably not. but, it's more interesting to think he was.

Is Schoenberg a romantic? or a Romantic?

- romantic

Is what people like a sign of artistic value?

- if it's what i like ;-)

Is piargno old at 23?

- if your 12, yes - if your 38, no

Should posters to this thread use their spacebar?

-fortherespectofrespecttoeachotherstime,itwouldbebesttouseaspacebarotherwiseasimplesentencebecomequiteunweildy


Shood thay lern to spel?

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

- 324.7

And most of all:

Why have the members of this forum got so much time on their hands?

324.7? I thought it was 342.7! Perhaps I'm dislexic, which may be a sign of my old age.

that's funny, you old man

btw - was just slamming through some brahms op118,119 - jeeze man, how can you not like this music? so darned pretty, and smart - well composed.

i love the Amaj, Cmaj, Bmin, heck, they are all good (no, they're grrrrreat...)

+ 1st symphony, 2nd, 3rd, even the 4th

2nd piano concerto...clarinet sonata - horn trio

With Brahms, I always feel that performing Brahms is better than listening. The symphonies, however, are just God Awful. I can't see how that crud is actually taken seriously.

I must admit, though, playing some of the intermezzos makes me very relaxed, but I can't listen to other people playing them. And singing in the requiem made me cry (during the dress rehearsal and the performance), but then I hear the piece, and I just feel so empty. The only pieces that I really like both listening and playing are the 4-hand waltzes and the hungarian rhapsodies transcriptions, but those aren't serious pieces for him. That's probably why I like them. To me, he only composed about 3 "serious" pieces. Everything else are just variations.

I'm fececious (sp. check), though. Don't take me seriously. I don't! XD
