What I’m bumpin’

Mussorgsky: Pictures at Exhibition

Brahms: Best of Brahms (one of probably a million such titled cds?)

Totally awesome! Classical is like, the new punk rock/hip-hop/techno/whatever. The themes and norms of classical music are so different from today’s mainstream culture, which has been so vastly taken over by pop culture, that classical is definitely the outsider/different/rebellious music of today. Mohawks, fauxhawks, mullets, and doorags may give way to powdered wigs among the kids of tomorrow…

*Note: Check out Bartok’s string quartets for some classical music which is very  much like prog-rock/noise rock/experimental/death metal/technical metal at times.  Some of his string quartet parts sound a lot like Voivod’s Nothingface and Dimension Hatross, Don Caballero, early Metallica, Fucking Champs, King Crimson, Mahavishnu Orchestra, etc.
