Post the edgiest, most avant-garde shit you can find.
This is actually a really good listen.
Festetics Quartet did a great complete collection
Nice to have them all, but I prefer Mosaíques
>"Nevertheless the passions, whether violent or not, should never be so expressed as to reach the point of causing disgust; and music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music."

>tfw can't seem to find the end of the final Agnus for Forestier's L'homme Arme mass in Jena U 3 since the section seems to just break off
>Even more striking in this respect is the form of the final fully-canonic Agnus dei, which features the same return to the start of the section in each voice, but offers no indication of a stopping point: the section could repeat ad infinitum, and indeed any ending must be chosen arbitrarily
Do not start with this.
Get a "Best of classical" collection, listen to it a couple of times, listen to more of the stuff you enjoyed.
>Like Beethoven 5? try his other symphonies.
>Like Nessun Dorma? listen to more Puccini
You wont "get into" classical by forcing yourself to listen to shit you don't enjoy.
Save that for later
>The Art of Fugue isn't a keyboard work

All charts you'll find are bad and the pastebin is especially bad.
he only became a neo-romantic failure in the mid 70s with works like his violin concerto, things like threnody in particular are very much written in this european avant-garde style. maybe you could try listening to a few works from the era? i could provide you a list if you want, so you don't make this same mistake in the future.
god I'm fucking sick of the rest of /mu/
how do they listen to trite garbage nonstop
Penderecki is a gimmick avantgardist but if his symphonies are less like that then i'll check em
7 and 8 are very listenable (I think 7 is my favourite), but they're pretty good from about 3 onwards. 1 isn't great and 2 is a bit better. He still hasn't bothered to finish writing his 6th symphony, so there's this annoying gap between 5 and 7, but maybe someday
