Piano music for making love
on: June 17, 2004, 04:58:37 PM
Hi guys, just thought that this topic may be interesting. I was discussing with one of my female friends if say next time either of us get married, what piano music we would like to hear when we are in that bedroom having that intimate moment with our to-be-husbands.

For me, I would prefer something that is soothing and dreamy, maybe in the line of Debussy's Reverie and Arabesques. Some of the more quiet and lyrical Ravel or Bach would be nice too.

So, if you are me, what would you like to listen during that moment ?

It's gotta be the 18th variations from the Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini of Rachmaninoff.  What a variation!

I agree, but it's only about 3 minutes long! Sure hope you're gonna "last" longer. Bolero seems to be the perfect choice. Starts slowly and gently and builds up to a final climax, just like in real life. Of course, Bolero might be a bit too long for some, and it is a bit repetitive.

I don't even want to know what comme_le_vent would say to this question.

Alkan's Festin d'Esope! ;D  If you heard it, you'll know what I'm talking about.  That would be some very interesting love making.

Or how about Grieg's March of the Trolls?  Very rhythemic and you get to rest in the middle. ;)

Le festin de Esope...Mephisto Waltz...lol!! try to be serious, really!! ;D

Has anyone here seen a movie from the 70's with Dudley Moore, called "Ten"?  In the movie, he makes love while listening to Raval's Bolero on Record.  It was funny, because the Record kept getting stuck, and repeating the same 2 seconds over and over!!hehe.

Stravinskys' Rite of Spring!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D

More seriously, Rach2 1st movement, the climax in that is quite orgasmic anyway!!

Oh yeah!  JK has a point!  Musical accompaniment for making love has to have a climax that has been built up and then just releases into this huge orgy of aural (and oral) pleasure!  If this is true, then I have to mention Alkan's Concerto for solo piano, Op. 39 Nos. 8-10.  No. 10 is where the climax really lies.  And the best part about it is that the concerto is 50 minutes long!  It's both a test of the pianist (as well the penis') stamina and endurance.

Hilarious! I have to reverse the thought: What would love making look like if it was set to the following pieces?

Minute Waltz
4:33
Theme from Zorba The Greek
Grand Galop
Tannhäuser Overture
Moonlight sonata, 1st movement
Flight of the bumblebee
Bolero

HAHA, man I was maybe thinking of Beethoven's Appassionata...nah, now that's ummm a bit too dreary and upbeat, it's gotta be slow, maybe moonlight, then work all the way to the 3rd movement, you can use your imagination.   ;D

How about something by umm...say Chopin's PC #2?  
Or even Wagner's Ride of the valkeries..
Oh my what a choice!  ;)

DONT DELETE THIS POST! IM PARANOID THE ADMIN KEEPS DELETING MY POSTS SO STOP IT!  All my posts are that bad in taste!

I wouldn't say your posts are in bad taste.  But, I have seen some of them before they got deleted, and it seemed you were postwhoring (posting just to raise your post count).  Which is probably the reason for the deletions.



Personally, I don't know about "making love" with piano music in the background.  It would completely ruin for me whatever piece is used.  After that, whenever I hear that piece, or have to play it, I'd always be thinking to myself "oh yeah, we fucked to this.."

lol! Mephisto Waltz!  Actually, storywise it would be quite appropriate...

why not Hungarian Rhapsodies 2 or 6? (Liszt)
That would be intense.

You know, I generally have a hard time imagining someone trying to have sex while a piano is going.  It just doesnt go!!  We need some bass to kick up some Bounchica-wow-wow!!! 8)

Im afraid Mozart Sonatas just dont cut it.

ha im surprised no one mentioned mussorskys pictures of an exibhition, this would be ideal,instead of pictures it would be positions as you go through each movement from the promenade sppeding it up fpr the unhatched chicks, giving it a real banging session for baba yagas hut then you reach the great gates of kiev, its the finale, reaching its Climax!!   and bang its over just as that final eflat tremolo in he bass reaches a standstill .....

      you all agree     matt

Why is the 18th of Rachmaninoff's Paganini variations the most popular one?  To me it sounds like Rachmaninoff's sentimentality reversed to produce something so sweet it should be stamped with diabetes active label.   :P
