Richard Nanes has written some of the most horrible, pretentious, repetitive, idiotic, banal, unoriginal, and boring music ever. His style is non-existent. All of his slow movements consist of an arpeggio bass with a (try at a) melody in the right hand, because that is obviously the only way to write a slow melody, right? Then, after 9 minutes of the same 3 chords repeated at different registers, he tries to write a virtuoso movement, but it's all scales and endless, endless octaves with not so much as a single melodic line behind it. Occasionally, he does throw a cluster or two into it, just to prove he's 'down' with the modern music.
Furthermore, he's not afraid of giving his works titles like "Rhadsodie Pathetique", "Celestial Seas", and, worst of all, "Holocaust Symphony", just as a final, pathetic try to get some attention.
At least he's dead and in hell now, and with him dies the awful pieces of so-called music.

Your entry is very hateful, and yet you have not the proportionate courage to back it up with your name. Mr. Nanes may have had more intentions for his music than an organized collection of tones. I treasure every time his music is featured on EWTN. "Forgive us our trespasses AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRESPASS AGAINST US." May Mr. Nanes' beautiful soul rest in peace so that he may pray for your salvation. God knows who you are, Mr. Anonymous. and your obvious disturbance should be laid to rest in knowing that you, too, were conceived by God and He loves you too. As He holds Mr. Nanes is His arms, now, gently caressing him with His kisses, you?....... Velma Valverde.

and everything you said will come back to you.....it is the circle of life. I knew him very well, music was his life, and just because YOU don't appreciate his music does not reflect HIS talent and love for it.
Richard Nanes, Rest in Peace, there are many of us here that love and appreciate your talent.
