The one hundredth classical performance: #738 Constant Lambert - The Rio Grande
There is, of course, not a clear delineation between classical and 'modern' music and even where there is some distinction, the two influence each other. While it has a full orchestra and chorus, this sounds and feels distinctly different from the other pieces. It's more like a movie soundtrack in its energy and it has a big jazz influence in its sound and how it plays. To be fair, that's probably just as much part of the way we randomly jump around the list. Seeing how this feels this could also be a backing soundtrack for Merry Melodies or another cartoon series, the amount of energy it has is amazing while it feels it takes you through a story at the same time.
