"Musicgasms"
on: September 22, 2015, 06:55:56 PM
Any pieces you know that have "musicgasm" moments, where a passage is so suddenly beautiful/brilliant/magical it induces a physical sensation similar to vomiting.

 

This at 3:53 is what i would consider one of those moments

Also it has to be abrupt, in the sense that you wouldn't really expect the music to develop that way

I like Pascal Roge's version of ondine much better. Especially at that part. Oh well. Anyway, 4:47 is the ultimate.

I listened to Pascal Roge's version, and it was really good! Very clean and powerful.
I listened to a  lot of other versions, and the vast majority of them falter at that part and the lead up (the part where the right hand has really hard succession of fast intervals).

Imo this would be by far the best, except when the actual arpeggio section happens it's grungy.

Yeah, that's true. But his doesn't, and it's really, really clear thoughout. The descending 3rds and 4ths  and 5ths right before that climax are so clear. And then the climax is of course clear also. I think clarity is very important in this part of the piece, whereas it should be unlcear in some other parts. He balances it perfectly.
