I'm glad you enjoyed the Cello Concerto. I actually didn't know he had composed anything like that either. I ran across it just recently. It was an eye-opener.

This will be a very generic question, but how do you feel about Beethoven's 9th? Movement 4, Choral.




This will probably be a complete shock to you... but I personally cannot connect with Beethoven's compositions... therefore when I listen to his pieces, I don't feel anything. I can enjoy it, but it doesn't move me like other composers.


Naw, actually - I'm not shocked at all. People have a hard time understanding why I don't like Mozart's works. They are too similar. It gets stale and starts to blend into each other after a while. There are very few of Mozart's pieces I like.

But, I'm not shocked. Lol.


I agree with you on that most of his compositions sound similar.

What few Mozart pieces do you like?

Mostly his woodwind works.

Um... let's see.

Flute Concerto No. 1. in G.
Bassoon Concerto in B Flat
Concerto for flute/harp in C.
Oboe Concerto is C Maj.

I don't have much knowledge about other composers writing for woodwind. I really like that family of instruments and if I could play something, I would choose either the Bassoon or the Oboe.

But yeah, those pieces are great. I also like his Symphony 24, it's a moving piece.

I SORT of, kinda appreciate Requiem/Lacrimosa - but it's overdone and has lost it's, 'gothy' charm for me.

That's crazy. I also happen to love Woodwind. And those are really nice Mozart pieces.

Have you ever been to a concert dedicated to Woodwind compositions?

I've been to one where they played Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake... and let me tell you, during and after that performance, I have a new level of appreciation for The Oboe... it's like the music came to life because of that one instrument, you always hear people say this sort of thing, but to be able to experience it myself was an amazing feeling.

I've been to see Mozart's Oboe Concerto. I associate the colour, 'pink' with that piece. It's so... flirty and naughty, but outwardly innocent. It's very playful. It was like the notes were pearls leaping out of the woodwind, but the pearls would explode into sound the moment it hit a surface. I left that concert in a happy mood.

I saw Yuja Wang play Prokofiev's Piano Concerto 2 this June. Let me tell you something my friend. She's just divine. I know, you're a gay man - but seriously - she's just THAT attractive. But overlooking that bit, she piano playing is pretty glorious. Youtube has a video of her playing Rachmaninoff's 2nd Concerto for Piano. Don't listen to that one, it doesn't fit her properly. She's too young and energetic to for that piece. She DID play Rachmaninoff's 3rd Concerto for piano too (saw that live), THAT was a good match for her.

Where do you live? Let's do dinner sometime.
