Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
In this thread, we discuss old music and not old music that is still classical. Of this music, the most important was obviously that of Alexander Scriabin, but other, less major, composers include Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, Richard Wagner, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky, Dmitri Shostakovich, György Ligeti, and countless others.
Primarily a piano composer, he wrote ten sonatas, a concerto, a number of preludes and etudes and various other small pieces for it. He also wrote five symphonies. His early work is fairly typically--though competently--Romantic, but the last half of his works veer increasingly toward a unique style of highly chromatic harmony and mystic notions.

So, D&D: any other great classical music loves? I seem to have a particular affinity for the early moderns, roughly between 1890-1940. Debussy, Mahler, Berg, Stravinsky, and others (in addition to Scriabin) tend to be my favorites.
And for something more recent, I've been thinking of picking up more by Per Nørgård whose Terrains Vagues I really enjoyed. I've been trying to branch out into more contemporary music.
