GUEST,Guest from Sanity Identify Symphony Themes (23) RE: Identify Symphony Themes 19 Mar 18


Hello Joe!!..... If you follow this it WILL assist you greatly!

Composers, classical or more modern, conceive or perceive their place of 'inspirations' in different ways, then relay that into their music! True story......but trying to 'remember' all the different tunes, by name and composer can be a needless exercise....if the music doesn't hit, or resonate with a part of you. Therefore, consider this, (as I've posted before numerous times in the past), Beethoven describe it this way,(being as he was musically 'breaking new ground')..when asked 'where he got his inspiration'.."The vibrations on the air are the breath of God speaking to man's soul. Music is the language of God. We musicians are as close to God as man can be. We hear his voice, we read his lips, we give birth to the children of God, who sing his praise. That's what musicians are.".......Now considering who he was/is, it would be logical for him to know what he was saying...right?...follow me.....That energy comes through different composers differently, and the reason they have lasted through time, is because they resonate with the 'souls' of mankind, regardless of passing trends, or even forms of governments. Now, if listening closely, you can pick up on the different 'styles' of how the different composers utilize their gift......you might be listening to a piece, and there is this one part that 'hits' you...so you ask, Who was that???'...you look it up...maybe listen to more of his stuff, and find a certain thread......another composer hits a different flash...and soon you are able to distinguish the different works and composers, just by ear.....THAT in mind...there are more modern composers, who have 'followers' just as the 'classical' ones, but you'd swear you were listening to a classical piece......for instance, here are some....listen closely...and btw, ALL of them are from film scores...yet sound classical..enough to ask, 'Who did that?', 'What was the name of that?'
This one, you'd swear was a classical piece...it's not!

another: 'Romeo & Juliet' Abel Korzeniowski 'Thousand Times Good Night'
Another from the same composer as above: Abel Korzeniowski, ' Come, Gentle Night' from the film ' W.E.'
Another, same composer, and look what they did with it...a more 'modern ballet'! Abel Korzeniowski, ' Come, Gentle Night' from the film ' W.E.'

What I'm trying to illustrate is that these, (in my opinion) are masterfully beautiful pieces, that would spur one's curiosity, to wonder 'who?' and 'what was that?'...so one can remember how to get to hear it again.....and you just learned and memorized it....
...the same about 'classical'.....and the closer you look and analyze the one that make you wonder why you liked it, the more intimate your knowledge of both composer and piece...where he's coming from...where he wants to take you, if you follow his lead....
before long you would be learning this stuff faster than you even thought.....true story!

That takes 'being in touch' with yourself enough to ALLOW the music IN, to resonate....(and BTW), music, as I've posted again, many times before, is a HIGHER calling than politics!!!
Little things amuse little minds...and the energy that people put into defending or promoting any of the current political hypocritical dogmas, is limiting one's capacity to perceive the fullness of the reality of where music comes from....in other words, politics closes people off, and makes them STUPID!!.....when the music, (such as classical), has lasted long enough to be classical....and has outlive every political form of government that is was ever composed under!!!!

Here, you may have heard this before...but this one takes you out to sea, and you end up in another, different shore.....No sound you are hearing, is from a conventional orchestral sound...all created God Bless....
