    Now that you mention it.. :lol:

    Oh, and another one by him that doesn't have a detective feel. :rofl:

    (Original post by TheOtherSide.)
    I've heard that one before. :rofl: I can play it too :awesome: though definitely not as well as Yann Tiersen himself. :hide:

    You also reminded me of another piece which I like - you should definitely listen to Michael Nyman's compositions.
    OMG YOU THIEF!

    These were the exact two ones I was going to recommend:cry2:

    First you steal my hat, now my music! Do you want me to hand over my bank details while I'm at it?

    I suppose what I'm trying to say is that you have a brilliant taste in music...

    Can't forget Ride of the Valkyries.

    That definitely goes without saying. Try cleaning the house to it one day, you'll feel as though you're going to war against the dust.

    I think it's also been called the most dangerous song to listen to while driving somewhere.

    Yep, I like Holst too, though I've never heard of Poulenc before. :hide:

    Um, other than the composers I mentioned on this thread I do enjoy Beethoven's compositions (like Moonlight Sonata), stuff by Tchaikovsky and Grieg. There's probably more but can't think of any right now. :emo:

    My favourite composer HAS to be Ludovico Einaudi.
    Saw the title of this thread and instantly thought Einaudi (I saw him in concert in london - he was amazing! so interesting to actually WATCH the music)

    Philip Glass' Metamorphosis series is good too. This is metamorphosis 1, the repetitiveness of his work is sometimes echoed in einaudis:

    Lol, are you trolling?

    If not, each to their own I guess.

    I like and listen to LITERALLY all types of music. But what's wrong with classical and orchestral?

    If you got all the way up to Grade 5, then I really doubt that. :rolleyes:
    And no to that, since I started playing it like two and a half years ago, but started lessons only about a year ago, and I haven't been able to do any grade exams 'cos of GCSEs.

    I volunteer at my neighbors, she's elderly and recently widowed so I volunteered as part of my Bronze DofE and still go and help out.
    One Saturday I decided to drag my lil bro along (he was very happy about this :rofl: ) and I picked bob the builder since he's only on grade 2 and used to watch it lolz

    Well I started grade 5 but didn't take the exam, all those scales just seemed like too much effort on top of grade 5 theory (3 marks off a distinction bruh ) and then grade 6 violin (taking this in november)
