|||||Rachmaninnoff - Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor op.18 - I Moderato||]|
I've been immersing myself in classical music over the past few weeks. Its very refreshing... I have found though that -and you wont hear me say this often- the russian composers are just a bit better than the German ones... I guess its for what you like, the german composers are generally placid and relaxing but the russians... They are fiery and emotional.
I like the frantic, seemingly impossible to perform piano screams of Mussogorsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" far more than the dull, almost emo, requiems of Mozart. Give me Rimsky-Korsakov's upbeat, jovial and charged music over Bach's snooze fests any day. Not to say I don't like German/Austrian composers. (technically there was no germany at the time they were around).
However one German trumps them all... Richard Wagner. Wagner's Tannhäuser and the Ring and everything else... is just amazing. Listen to it sometime and just crank it. Its quite the experience.
So I'm looking for employment, put in an Application to Autozone. Gonna apply at Lowe's later on. Eugh. I would so much rather work for Autozone it's not funny. Lowe's or Target might drive me crazy.
