Do We Judge Music by Sight More Than Sound?

With an increased share of classical music consumed in various audivisual formats in relation to audio only, a relevant question to ask is whether it disturbs or enhances the musical experience of a classical composition. We have selected four distinctly different types of videos with respectable performances of the same work, Liszt’s Sonata in B minor. Listen and watch a few minutes of each and then cast your vote!

If you're going to perform a piece like that, it's got to be 100%.  80-90% is leaving me thinking, "That could have been a little more ____ and that part needs a lot of a lot of work..."  It's depriving me of the listening experience since I know what I'm expecting to hear.  And I'm expecting something along the lines of those original recordings since I've heard.  Different interpretation maybe, but there probably isn't much wiggle room.

I'm listening to these:

Original soundtracks from:
-Fez
-Bastion
-Braid

(these are all video games, Fez is all synthesized music, Bastion is a mixture of electronic/acoustic, and Braid has some very nice loop effects on cello)

==

Give them a listen, I think they are really evocative.  If you don't like them, then that's just too bad for you  Wink

It's got to be the harmonies.  That's what usually keeps me listening.

That, the melody is easy, and I like the tone a bit on this piano.




Yeeeahp.... That's pretty much what I thought.  Great.   Roll Eyes

Still like it a bit though.  Prefer this piano version.  Reminds me of a tarantella or tango.

Memorized for a duet?


That's why you dress up for a performance though.  406,000 people view you... but you're performing in white t-shirt?  (Yes, it matters that it's a white t-shirt.  Roll Eyes )

(You should know.)

Past couple weeks.  If I hit modify sometimes the update, for anything, doesn't stick.  I get an error message.  The links I messed around with a bit, searching for "the" link, but...  That gets old.  I've given up.  I tried removing the https, tried finding the regular link (vs. the playlist link), and tried the sharing link on youtube.  It's too much to work for no result.

Re: the weather.  If you're me from the future, you should be aware of that.  I don't know why.  That's just how it is.  Same with Chopin and the iron bars, as you would know.

Fine.  That's why I've got a date calendar anyway.  I already don't know what's going on with that.  Probably won't be much different if my memory's wiped.  Easier actually, to not have cart around extra thoughts like that. 

It does kind of make me wonder if someone botched up something with the singularity though.  I wouldn't go first for that for sure.  That would be my luck too.  You don't even know what you're missing out on then I guess.  Probably good for something things I suppose.

Class.  Cool










 Roll Eyes  Original question:  What does this piece lack? Heavy on cheese though.


It's a whole CD... Haha.  Makes sense.  Just not quite believing what I'm finding here.



Complete with a harpsichord thrown in?  Yes... class.  Haha.  Roll Eyes  Early music purists will go nuts over that outrage.
