    Smoke and Mirrors =Kyrie Eleison from Mass in B minor by JS Bach.
    Sonata = Second Movement of Pathetique Sonata by LV Beethoven.
    Prelude = Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi.
    Fallen = "Presto" from Concerto for Orchestra by Béla Bartók.
    Lacrymosa = "Lacrimosa" from Requiem by WA Mozart.
    A Fool´s PAradise = "Allegro non troppo ed energico" from Harpischord Concerto in D minor by JS Bach
    Inferno = "Presto" from Summer by Antonio Vivaldi.

    so that means the other thread's replies would be continued here? works for me. :D

    anyways...

    thanks for bringing that up. at least Romeo, Forte, Malmsteen et al know how to read the sheet music instead of just sampling outright like those Hiphop fools.

    Thanks for the links again Luis, btw.

    A list of threads we need to sticky:

    1. This
    2. A Nightwish thread
    3. A Malmsteen thread
    4. An Adagio thread
    5. A merchandise thread
    6. A fanclub thread

    Anything else?

    Don't forget "Romeo vs. John Petrucci."

    We should also sticky a thread called, "If you're going to post a topic about guitars, drums, or keyboards, read this," in which Matt tells them to put it in Musician's Corner.

    Good idea. He should also be listed on the website as part of the Symphony X staff or something for doing that.

    Edit: How stupid of me, I forgot to mention a thread about Opeth.

    We need another Off topic thread. Or Ressurrect it and resurge it with something interesting, though the forum HAS been hurting without Shred-ididdididdidile and Serge..

    I miss Serge, what happened to him?

    So, when you say rip-off do you mean note for note, or amaizingly similar?

    I don't think he means rip-off at all. He's providing a list of classical music quotes, reworkings or clear influences that show up in Symphony X songs, while at the same time poking fun at the people who accused SymX of ripping off some piece of classical music.

    What's about the Solo in MASQUERADE?
    I think it's a piece by Bach but which one?

    I edited the thread subject cuz 'rip off' sounds too harsh for those who don't read the thread.
