Mozart & Beethoven added!

Are they considered "Progressive"?

I like it though,

Still looking for that 128 bit stream

If you really want to get progressive...

What about Debussy, Ravel, Rimsky-Korsakov (sic?), Mussgorsky, and them there folks?

Some Debussy, Ravel, and Mussorgsky are forthcoming. I don't own any Rimsky-Korsakov.

Is classical progressive? When I was listening to the "golden age" of prog in the early-mid seventies, another term that was often used instead of progressive was "classical rock". Under that line of reasoning, I think classical definitely belongs here. But let the debate continue...

A prog song followed by a classical piece? I'm thinking of Yes' Fragile (along with other ELP albums). I think it's a nice fit.

progressive classical

If the playlist now includes classical pieces, I think you ought to include progressive composers' pieces as well. Specificlly, I am thinking of Philip Glass. I know that his "Glassworks" album is already on the list, but his symphonies Nos. 2, 3, and 5 are all easily available and are excellent listening. Another good album is "Passages," an album Glass did with Ravi Shankar.

BTW, while the first movement of Beethoven's fifth is the most recognizable, the fourth movement far surpasses it. You should include that piece, IMO. Also, the Egmont Overture, my favorite LVB overture, would be a great piece to hear too.

Come to think of it....

Vanilla Fudge (the world's greatest cover band) did an odd, obscure thing called "The Beat Goes On" in which they did a rendition of some Beethoven...the album is a real rarity...but I do have it if you'd like to add it.

While you are in the process of ripping new classical, don't forget "Pictures At An Exhibition" by Mussorgsky and "The Planets" by Gustav Holst.
I know that ELP covered both, and maybe somebody else.

Not Rock

Ok, I love classical music. I have Stravinsky, Berlioz, Bach, Holst, Chopin, etc. But I thought this was a Progressive ROCK site. Kick em out, Kick em out. WAAAY OUT!

Yesspaz out.
