fans of good music
Ok, you like it loud and heavy...let's see..you already mentioned some pretty good ones, btw, O fortuna, or rather "Fortuna imperatrix mundi" is just two parts of Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana" (opener and finale), do yourself a favor and listen to the whole piece, very entertaining, nice to listen to, very good for "beginners", whatever that is.
Well how about Beethoven's) 9th? The final with orchestra, singers and choir (Freude schoener Götterfunken) is classic classic, if you know what I mean, hear it loud and it will be a declaration of war to all your neighbours!! But it might be worth that *ggg*...
ok, maybe not that heavy but very loud /at least in the end) and absolutely brilliant: Bolero by Maurice Ravel, try to get the 1974 recording of the Chicago Sym. Orch. with Georg Solti, the whole thing consists basically of one single theme with a little variation, that is repeated over and over again, using just the instruments to make it great, and it is!!!!! It starts piano, flute and drums, and then it gets louder and louder, when the strings come in, I swear you'll see the sun rise wherever you are, and in the end, when the whole 120-piece orchestra is going full tilt, it is pure power and glory and MEGALOUD!!!!! I've listened to it thousands of times, and it never ceases to totally overwhelm me...just never ever listen to the short version from that movie "10" where it was used as a soundtrack for s.x, that was a travesty of music, and done extremely bad.
Hope that helps to have some fun during the Christmas Holidays
merry Christmas and a happy new year to all
btw: NormalSpeed...Yes, your list is full of classics, too, *ggg*, I'm totally with you there!
