By "classic music", do you mean classical music?

I'm reviving this thread for continuity's sake.

I hate populist pandering like the below. It doesn't get anyone interested and just serves to annoy existing people with an interest in classical music.

But let's talk about Walton otherwise. Do you like Walton? I quite like his 1st Symphony. It's up there with Shostakovich's 7th. I'd say I feel like his later works (especially No. 9) come of as a bit movie-scorish, but I feel Walton is guilty of the same offense.

Walton was talented - Belshazzar's Feast is a genuinely impressive work - but unfortunately he was a total hack, so most of his output was hackwork. And, frankly, not very good hackwork at that.

What little I've heard of Walton here and there has been pretty consistently boring, and I've zero desire to dig deeper.

Outstanding. I like work for the piano, although I need to formally brush up on classical music. There are folks here who know vastly more than I do. I only know this and that, really major pieces of music, and whether or not I like something if I hear it. That particular piece is good.

Yes, most of his output was terrible. He was a hack, alas.

It holds zero appeal to me as I'm not a dilettante.

Walton's choral music is nice; Coronation Te Deum + The Twelve.

Is anyone else here a fan of Cesar Franck?

Thank you all... no.









Here are some graphs. What do you think of Christopher Rouse?
