That Rachmaninov piano concerto thing. And Chopin's Raindrops.
Variations # 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23, and 26 are sometimes refered to as "arabesques". These are the very fast, lively, much ornamented ones that appeal to the listener the most on the first hearing, almost regardless of the performer.Chi Meson said:I agree with your asessment of the "middle" part of Goldberg; I often hit the skip button if I'm feeling impatient. But I think that anyone can be quickly pulled in by the Aria and the first 10 variations. The segue from Aria to variation 1 is without a doubt one of my favorite moments in Classical music.
The whole of Mozart's Requiem?? That is not a song, it is like movements in a piece. The best of the Requiem is the Confutatis, in my opinion.Dooga Blackrazor said:Right now I have four songs: The Requiem by Mozart, Fur Elise by Beethoven, Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven and Allegro Concerto #3 by Bach. My favorite is The Requiem if that helps determine my listening style any.
