Classical Football background Music
There's a thread title for you!
OK, I am not at all knowledgeable with respect to identifying individual classical works – save the obvious Mozart and Beethoven stuff, and the like. Recently, my son and I were watching some replays of old NFL films and he was just TAKEN with a lot of the background music. Real heroic, exciting, up tempo kind of stuff – what sounded to me like a lot of oboes, french horns, and other unknown brass. It was NOT parade music - with a lot of trombone and marching cadences, though. Does anyone know what particular pieces or general composer’s pieces are used for this kind of stuff. I’d like to subsequently find some of this music on vinyl. Who knows, it might even create a new classical fan!
