Dear people,
would you recommend me some ?
Any period, any style, any country, really classical, or experimental, whatever. Whole symphonies or just single movements.
Just give it to me!

@arteteco en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Sib sorry for being a boring Finn but this is something that I listen to when, in the past, I got homesick. invidio.us/watch?v=fE0RbPsC9uE

@arteteco Finlandia is the short history of Finland put into short piece of music.

@whirli All but boring, Sibelius is nice, thanks. Can you understand the lyrics?

@arteteco sang by the english choir? Sort of. Pretty well done by them.

@arteteco The first thing that comes to mind is Danse Macabre played by the Venezuela Youth Orchestra: youtu.be/FIrpp-inOpM

This is the best rendition I've ever heard. Just close your eyes and turn on your imagination.

@SeventhMagpie I knew Danse Macabre but I never heard the Venezuela Youth Orchestra. Talented youngsters, this sounds good!

@arteteco Rachmaninoff's Second concerto by a tough Siberian man Denis Matsuev and Svetlanov's orchestra: youtu.be/Ex9F-nfg2wE

You can hardly get more Russian than that.

@arteteco Arthur Rubinstein playing Chopin's Nocturnes: youtu.be/LoTQF_Z_3lQ

Also try to find waltzes from the same collection. Those are all recordings made when he was over 70, and I'd say he was at his pianistic prime than.

@SeventhMagpie
I don't know basically nothing about Chopin, but this music is so nice, thanks!

@SeventhMagpie The whole Ma Vlast is such a masterpiece... thanks for bringing it up, I was so happy to hear it again!

@arteteco Chopin's Premier concerto by Emil Gilels and Moscow State Orchestra: youtu.be/VtTl5of4J_Q

Yes, the coughing man should've stayed at home. :/

You can also find the recording with Philadelphia orchestra under Eugene Normandy. Also great performance.

@arteteco And sorry for YouTube. I don't know where else to take these recordings from so I could share. Use Firefox with ublock origin plugin to remove adverts, because YT is totally insensitive with inserting it in random places. :(

@SeventhMagpie Thank you very much for your links, I really appreciate it. And youtube is the best for me!

@arteteco On the experimental end of the spectrum, I've been enjoying 19-EDO music (dividing the octave into nineteen pitches rather than the conventional twelve). Most microtonal schemes just sound really weird and discordant, but 19-EDO is more like "normal" music with new chords.

@arteteco @federicomena Not any particular piece of music, but I really like this clip from the movie Liberal Arts:

@federicomena @arteteco I can't guarantee that you will like the movie, but Roger Ebert and I liked it. ;-)

@arteteco I'm sure you've seen the Rite of Spring with orchestra. This solo piano version with Daniel Rivera completely blows my mind. m.youtube.com/watch?v=h9kPKZYW

@arteteco
Hi, I'd like to recommend any piece of Frederic Chopin. I leave you a link of one of my favorite pieces
