Music that has brought tears to your eyes
« on: September 16, 2006, 01:16:38 AM »
Have you listened to something that has made you cry??

So far, only 2 for me:

1, Beethoven's 5th symphony, the last movement... soooo beautiful especially when it's about to end..

2, Mozart sonata k310 in A minor.. i think. but no the first time I heard it. I had hear it before but then I found out he composed it when his mother died and then... oh everything made sense. One of mozart's most moving sonatas, so much different from other music he composed wich is usually happy and joyful even though he had a difficult life. I started crying in the middle section of the second movement... he must have loved her soo much.... :'(

Oh well... what about you??

To me, it's not the piece of music that does it, but rather it's how it's performed.

I don't recall the performer unfortunately, but I once heard Beethoven's Waldstein played so beautifully that I will never forget it.  It was quite emotional.  I forgot the name of the pianist because at that time in my life I wan't really into piano, I was just moved by that particular performance.

I also heard someone play a very simple elementary Bach Prelude (the first one in the Well-Tempered Book I), but it was played with such feeling that it was almost unrecognizable as the simple piece that so many beginners start out playing.  I think most people never really learn to play that prelude well.  They learn it early, and then put it behind them as a "beginner's piece".  But it can be extremely beautiful when played by an accomplished pianist who puts sincere emotion into it.

So for me, it's definitely in the performance, not the piece.

...a live performance of Liszt's Funerailles...it was by a student of John Perry's whose name I forgot >.< but I couldn't stop weeping, so I was kicked out of the hall :-\

I have heard Arrau's version on recording before, but I guess hearing a real live performance is just different...the bass, the way the harmony strikes you...then again, I was lacking sleep that day...

Now I hate the piece ;D

The closest I've come to tears when listening to music (call me hard-hearted if you will  :P) was a live performance of Stravinsky's Firebird with the New York City ballet. That performance both opened my eyes to Stravinsky and to ballet.

Next closest was a recent performance by Leon Fleischer of Schubert's Bb Sonata. Simply unforgettable.

The angriest I've ever been at a performance was when, on the closing note of Mahler's 9th Symphony, someone in the audience immediately began cheering, and the rest of the audience followed. I don't really know if I've ever been angrier from anything I've encountered. In my opinion, there should be no sound after that final note - the audience should just leave in silence. But, as this may be too radical an idea for some, at least give the music some time to settle in! ...I'm angry just thinking about it.

The second movement of Beethoven's 7th.

Me too! Beethoven 7 was the first symphony I played with an orchestra, so it's special, but the 2nd mvmt is wonderful.

Besides that... only two come to mind which were both for a production as a whole rather than purely for the music, both as done by my favourite ballet company - Swan Lake and Madame Butterfly.

Fur Elise... if I ever hear that  piece again, I'll wish I was never born ;) Oh and I was shopping at Costco yesterday, where they had a suzuki digital grand piano, some kid was playing around with it and left it while it was playing a demo of Rondo Alla Turca. It could be heard within a 100ft radius. It was left playing for almost an hour... I was on the verge of tears.
Well, seriously speaking, these don't really bring tears to my eyes, but they might for others:
Ravel Piano Concerto in G major 2nd movement
Liszt Piano Concerto no.2 in A major
Chopin Ballade no.4 in F minor(I think)
Beethoven Piano Sonata no.23, op.57 in F minor "Appassionata" Andanto con moto, attacca
many others, but too tired to remember.

-Pictures at an Exhibition (by mussorsky!!)
-Bach Violin Partita #2 Chaconne
-Wieniawski Violin Concerto #1 (1st mvmt)
-Symphony Espanol

In the case of soloists, it really also depends whose playing it... For piano I'm a big fan of horowitz, say, lipkin, and gould. for violin I like milstein, heifitz, shaham, kremer, and kogan.

Greetings.

Well, Big My Secret (Michael Nyman's) used to make me shed some tears.
Victor's Piano Solo (Danny Elfman, Corpse Bride OST) and, also from this OST, Tears to Shed.
"Moonlight" Sonata, Op. 14, mv 1.
"Lilium" and "Rin'ne" from the anime Elfen Lied.
Nobuo Uematsu also makes me almost cry, and Kajiura Yuki.

Music often has the ability to move me to tears, especially if its a good performance.

Same for me.  Often moved to tears at live performance...rarely tears of sadness but tears of beauty and truth.  I get caught up in the moment, transported to this other place, and the tears just come because my soul is just so full at the moment.

All on the above list have done it for me.  As has a lot of opera:  virtually every Puccini at least once per opera.  R. Strauss -- the recognition scene in "Elektra," the presentation of the rose in "Rosenkavalier."  Wagner's "Tristan," the Liebestod.  Almost every time I hear the last movement of Beethoven's Op. 111 live (even a mediocre performance -- the music is just that transcendent).  Countless other examples.

I don't cry often. The only time I have had my tear ducts flow was when Zimerman came to play.

I don't know if you have heard Chopin B-flat Minor Sonata played live by him, but it is nothing like anything else I have ever heard or anything else ever played.  His third movement was so passionate, moving, and beautiful that ...  :'(  If you have not had this experience, I would go overseas to hear it.  I hope that you don't have to, though.  The point of this is that virtuosity is essential, but it will not save you.   Zimerman's power lies not in his flawless technique but in the power of his creation, exactly as Leucippus said.  To play the piece is but to begin to harvest its power.  As the judges of the Liszt Competition said, you must not only demonstrate the horse's power, speed, and fury, but you must awaken pathos for the unfortunate rider.  You must bring out the feeling and make it true.  And that, my friends, is exactly what I need to do, and that is what you need to do.

Thank you for allowing me to clarify my thoughts and put it into action, and thank you for reading,

Daniel

@oceansoul:
""Moonlight" Sonata, Op. 14, mv 1."
By Beethoven?  That's Op. 27, No. 2 "Sonata quasi Fantasia."

P.S. Other similar music is Schumann KQuintett, Beethoven Op. 131 String Quartet in C# Minor.  Wagner said that the String Quartet first movement was the saddest music ever written, and I defer to Wagner.  The Schumann was written in the struggle of soul after his mother's death.
I look forward to hearing Mozart K.310

I don't cry, I'm a boy
just kidding, I happen to shed a tear once or twice a year. maybe even less. Doesn't matter...
Anyway, there are classical pieces that made me very emotional and moved me when I finally understood them (after at least the tenth time hearing them):
- Mozart PC 20 2nd Movement "Romance"
- Beethoven Fantasia for Piano op. 77
- Beethoven PC 4 op. 58 1st Movement's Cadenza (the most famous Cadenza- hope you know what I'm talking about. It's amazing.)
- Chopin Ballade n. 1 op. 23
- Liszt PC 2 Allegro Deciso (It's the 4th part out of seven. It's so coollllll!!!!!!!!!)
- Tchaikovsky PC 1 op. 23 - ALL OF IT!
- Mahler Symphony n. 1. "One has to hear a Mahler Symphony to understand the true way a symphony must be written". quoted by an unknown person...
- Debussy Suite Bergamasque
- Rachmaninov Prelude n. 1 op.3 n. 2

I have to say that Rubinstein, Zimerman and Barenboim are my favourite pianists... they certainly move me no matter what they play...!

Also, there has been music which pushed me over the edge, for example when Mufasa dies in the Lion King and Simba is trying to waken him. Hans Zimmer's music at that exact moment in time made the tears pour out so suddenly that I didn't have time to fetch a tissue.

Hmm...I've never cried from listening to a piece, but there are certainly some fantastice, emotional pieces out there.
When I watched Shine for the first time the other day, when David Helgoff played Rachmaninoff's Concerto No.3, it did put a smile on my face. It was so delicatly played, I was amazed! I would love to learn that one day.

The first time I heard Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 in C sharp minor, I immediatly got the music and started to learn it (working on the Friska from it atm btw).
Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 3...Monumental!

One night I was listening to a collection of Chopin works as I was going to sleep and his First Concerto started playing and I just had all these images in my head and it made me cry, it was really beautiful. But what has Chopin composed that is not beautiful? And unlike a lot of his other works, it wasn't beautiful in that melancholy way.

p.s my mum always cries in his raindrop prelude lol ::)
