I was obsessed with this thing as a teenager and would listen to it on laserdisc over and over. The first concerto (Spring) is the one everyone knows, but my favorite parts were the bombastic Summer storm (17:55) and the powerful Winter passage at 33:58.

Hell yeah, one of the few classical passages you can headbang to.

We played the Four Seasons in high school, our first violin could shred that violin part at 33:24.

I would air violin it so hard! (I can't play the violin, but an air violin is surprisingly forgiving)

Sure, modern classical is classical. I do appreciate Glass, he does the minimalist thing so well.
edit: that recording is kind of garbage but I can't immediately find a better one

I mentioned earlier that I acquired a keyboard for 5 dollars at a yard sale and I'm determined to learn how to play it. The first lesson built into the keyboard, lesson 00, is Bach's Minuet in G. It's a pretty good piece and I've been drilling it whenever I get a few free minutes.

Also when the baby mashes buttons randomly, it will frequently start playing this piece because it's the one I have selected. So between me and him, this is my wife's new least favorite song.

I think they're just grace notes and you play them like you would expect, just tap the next note up the scale. The Casio doesn't recognize them and I haven't been playing them.

On further review, I think it's called a mordent.

I got Minuet in G on lock and I was looking to try something beefier.
I briefly tried learning this Chopin nocturne but the left hand gymnastics were a bit too much and I wasn't having fun so I said fuck it. Pretty piece though.
So here's where I'm currently at. Much more fun to play. Over the past week I put a few hours into this before realizing the version the keyboard teaches you is transposed down a half step for some fucking reason. I have never felt so betrayed by a 5 dollar purchase. So anyway, all that work is out the window and I have to start again from square one with the wrong muscle memory. I am hopeful that I can push through because the piece really is badass.
