My amateur fumbling around near pipe organs pales in comparison with the pros here, but at least I can push some nice work by Japanese musicians that dare to cross imaginary boundaries as well.

Hahaha! Same here, crazy mess of musical genres, from classical (Brahms Symphonies, Beethoven Concertos, Stravinsky and the like) over Scott Joplin/Jelly Roll Morton and Blues to Iron Maiden and Dream Theater  ;D
And a lot in between.

A phantastic composition performed by my all time favourite Royal Concertgebouw Orkest conducted by Bernard Haitink (in their prime I'd say):

Nice stuff :-)


Here's a question: Does she sing "buried here" or "bury you"?

Maybe both, alternately ...

Have to recommend this crazy guy over and over:

What a powerhouse. She's so precise, relaxed, dynamic, swinging, and perfectly immersed in the musical flow:

H'bout this one? Energy level off the scale... and still fully in control.

Hardy Heinlin

Yep, obviously in the same master class. I like the nuances such as those dynamic rolls at 4:27 - 4:30, for example. I mean, what I find fascinating is not just the speed -- that would be just a "sport show" -- but the musicality, how the drums support the idea of the song as a whole etc.

Martin Baker

Are drummers generally angry people, or are they in fact very calm because all the anger is focused into the drumming?

Hardy Heinlin

:-) Drummers are not generally angry. I think a piece of music may express anger, and all musicians that are playing this piece may be angry in that moment, be it a drummer, a piano player, or a trumpet player etc. Aggressive staccato and crescendo expressions can also be played on a piano or on a flute, if played by Ian Anderson with explosive breath noise :-)

Is a symphony orchestra angry when they play the beginning of Beethovens 5th? :-)

Jeroen Hoppenbrouwers

Concerning "angry" and other emotions... this one displays a staggering array of emotions in one song. Floor in the mean time got two kids and cancer therapy and other things and is ten years older but still kicks most other singers out of the ring without even trying.

Also note how at the end she hails the drummer who did significant work as well.
