Favorite 20 minutes or over movement....

Postby Catmando » Mon Jul 31, 2006 7:52 am

Classical music fans, what is your favorite over 20 minute movement (symphony, concerto, sonata.......or whatever)?

We all know....there are some great ones, that you enjoy so much they don't even feel like they are 5 minutes long!

The final movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony does come to mind, however, clearly my personal favorite is the 1st movement of Beethoven's Violin Concerto Op. 61

That's a great one, Shap. Also Mahler's final movement of Symphony # 3

Hijack :!: :arrow: : Why is this thread posted under The Debate Team? No one has the right to debate over what my favourite over-20-minutes-of-whatever is. :evil:

I think he's building up to blame the Bush administration's budget cuts for the lack of quality movements over 20 minutes in length. :D

no particular reason, it's just a recurrent theme in the 'Debate Team' threads that President Bush is blamed for everything. :D

Why not the debate area? There are just so many threads in the Musical Notes area.

Plus, favorites and opinions are always debatable, in my opinion.

And no, I don't blame Bush. The American people are to blame for voting in Bush a 2nd time around. :twisted:

This is surreal. That's my favorite, too.

And then there's

"I think he's building up to blame the Bush administration's budget cuts for the lack of quality movements over 20 minutes in length."

also from Shap.


Such anticipation! I'm in awe.

Beethoven #9 3rd movement. I think that's 20 mins. It may be a bit shorter, depending on the conductor & his tempo.

It's also Wagnerian before Wagner was Wagnerian.

Isn't the 3rd movement more like 12 or 13 minutes?
