Because life jests if it tells me that there is no classic music post on /mp3/.

Because even romantic and barroque compositions are classical music. Go figure.

I can't say how many Chopin fans are in Tohno-chan actually as I am the only other poster in this thread, but I'am quite fond of classical compositions, piano in particular. I'll keep letting this thread live posting from time to time as I have alot of content to put in here.

I wanted to post this soon here. Nobuyuki Tsujii is a blind man who competed in Cliburns competition and won second, lacking behind a chinese pianist. He participated in solo and chamber music and scored extremely high in both. I believe it is a first for a blind pianist to reach so high as career as him, so I wanted to give him a place here.

Also, talking about Chopin: I find Sviatoslav Richter's interpretations of Chopin's pieces the best. He was such a fiery and strong person when playing and he not only can take away the delicacy that some put in Chopin's pieces but create a whole new mood to it, especially in his execution of Winter Wind.

I honestly love the concept behind 4'33''. I alredy tried to discuss it with other people but they cannot grasp beyond the aesthetic ideas of it and simply mock it as if it was a song that was supposed to sound good. It does sound good, though. John Cage's Dreams is also amazing and a development of Erik Satie's compositions, in a way. A must hear for any minimalist fan.

I guess it depends on how you consider the piece, and in relation with what discourse. If you understand it as "silence", you could relate it with minimalism in a way similar to the one that reached a moment of excelence wit Arvo Part's tintinnabuli (vid related). But, if you understand it as "(white)noise" it goes indeed a bit more in the line of Satie's "furniture music" (music made for NOT being listened), as a posible predecesor for ambiance music and maybe even jazz (at least because that's the only way some of us can can enjoy jazz: not paying much attention to it). It's also important to remember that, most of all, 4'33'' constitutes a classic example of dadaism, understood as a denial/destruction of art as a way of protest against the (military and rotten) society from wich it sprung.

I'm glad.

This one isn't really classic... yet. It's an arregement by its own composer, who originally wrote it for multiple folckloric instruments, to only a couple guitars (he is a classical guitarist himself). It's just a nice -and not really hard to play at all- song.

Youtube does not have this Satie valse so I had to upload it.

Also, I believe I found out why I love Satie so much. I was recently bored and I searched for Satie's life, something that would tell me how his works were received during his life, the people he knew, the awards he had received. If you are someone that looks for biographies and stories of the great pianists of today and of old, then you, like me, know that most of great pianists were normally playing at three years old, giving recitals of complex Liszt and Bach pieces at eight, going through orchestral pieces at eleven and becomings masters at fifteen. But not Satie.

What surprised me about Satie was that he only began at eleven years old to play piano. Not only that, but he was never actually accepted or completed a conservatoire course. Erik never had an actual formation and made his way through cabarets and other places like so, never the great recital halls. He did had a time of fame and success while still alive, but he had no visits at his home during his entire time living in Arcueil. When he died, he had an enormous amount of either hidden or unfinished pieces that he kept away from public, inside a coat, at his house. When he tried for conservatoires of England, the staff said he was horrible and had a fiasco of a technique, and he was known as the laziest stundent when he was actually accepted.

And yet he still composed during all this time. Satie lived with this mixture of confusion, of solitude and feeling of failure most of his life and yet he still composed. Somehow I believe I find myself in a close situation if only in a sentimental way, and I believe Satie says in his compositions what I would like to express to others but cannot.
