    Listening to several Fugazi, Bad Brains, Minor Threat, Descendants, and Primus albums. This one brought me back.

    This has always haunted me, in a good way.

    I feel like I'm cheating on this one, but I do love me some Pachelbel.

    I dont keep up or dive too much into Classical music but its influence has played a part in many different areas of rock and metal. One of my favorite pieces is Edvard Grieg's "Hall of the Mountain King".



    To which i will add a rock version of said song by the late Criss Olivia of Savatage. "Prelude to Madness" which intros into the song Hall of the Mountain King.



    Apocalyptica also did a version of the song.



    Also like selected pieces by Chopin and Beethoven.

    For starters. here's Yulianna Avdeeva in Ballade in F minor, Op. 52 (third stage, 2010)

    This might be my favorite classical composition. For some reason I tend to like the solo piano works more than the orchestral, symphonic, and chamber works. The piano is so expressive. No one wrote for it better than Chopin when you consider the body of work. This is probably his finest composition.

    I agree with your sentiments about piano. I think cello is nearly as enjoyable

    I used this Meyer composition on my wedding day for the dance of the bride and groom.

    One thing I appreciate about classical music.

    While the composer dictates the notes and the performer has to be true to the music, the performer has some liberty to evoke the intent of the composer in ways that aren't explicit on the sheet. An example that comes to mind is Schubert's D960 sonata, written shortly after Schubert had met with the dying Beethoven, and shortly before Schubert's own death from syphilis at age 31. This is my pick for best sonata ever, btw.

    A discussion of the different interpretations here.

    Artur Schnabel - no messing around. A performance totally true to the composer's intent.



    Sviatoslav Richter - messing around. A performance possibly truer to the composer's real intent?



    A more extreme example is Pogorelich's performance of Chopin's prelude #15, the so-called 'raindrop' prelude. This was the first piece of music I would say I came close to mastering, and it was astonishing how many interpretations there are of this work. Different dynamics, different phrasing, different emphasis of certain voices within the work, and most of all, the tempo. After listening to nearly every interpretation of the prelude, I came to prefer Argerich's above all, but it was Rubinstein's that inspired me, and Pogo's that invited me to share an artistic vision using the music as lens.

    Pogo -- messing around.



    Rubinstein -- just the facts, ma'am.



    I think both of them work quite well.
