In honor of our friends over at Awesöme Orchestra, who planned a perfectly normal 69th session, I’ve decided to put together a roundup of the most sexually explicit works of classical music. Call it my own personal fantasy concert and a casual suggestion for when AO makes it to session 169. Obviously v LEWD and NSFW content beyond, CW: we shan’t be pretending sex doesn’t exist.Continue reading “Session 69, ClaXXXical MusiXXX”
The seventh season of Game of Thrones comes out this Sunday which is great because honestly, it’s hot out and we could all use some winter. But it’s still days away and our watch is not yet ended, so I came up with this playlist of classical music that felt like it came out of the same world as Ramin Djawadi’s dark and unearthly Game of Thrones score.
WORK TITLE: Partita for 8 Voices
COMPOSER: Caroline Shaw
DATE/ERA: 2012/New Music
IDEAL FOR: When you need some Joy, or when you’re looking for some next level acapella group music.
The first time I heard Partita for 8 voices was shortly after it had won the pulitzer. I put it on casually in the background while I fiddled around on the internet but it only took about a minute and a half before I closed my browser and sat stunned. I got to the end, sat blinking at my computer and pressed play again. See below for live footage of the moment
