I don't listen to it very often, but sometimes I like so much to listen Strauss, Verdi, Vivaldi, Mozart, Bach, Rossini, etc.

They're great!!!

it's music of great value. Unfortunately the lack of consistent rythm that today's western music has makes me prefer the latter

Took a class devoted to analyzing Vivaldi and Bach - they're geniuses. I'm a trumpet player, so of course I like classical music (if I remember correctly, Vivaldi and Bach are baroque composers.. I know what you mean by 'classical' though).

It's got it's good points, and it's low points.


Betoveens 7th and Wagners "Ride of the Valkyries" are two of the high points.

Yes, especially Bach.
But as said MITaero, Bach is not a "classical" composer. He's older than that, from the "baroque" era.

Try the "Klavierkonzert BWV 1052", that's great. Or the famous "Well-Tempered Clavier".

I also listen to Mozart and Schubert.

No, as a general rule. However, there are some pieces that I really love; the 6 Unaccompanied Cello Suites, composed by Bach and performed by Yo-Yo Ma; American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue, Three Preludes, and Concerto in F from George Gershwin; the Lord of the Rings Soundtracks, composed by Howard Shore; Symphony from the New World by Dvorak; Ride of the Valkyries from Wagner; 1812 Overture from Tchiachovsky (sp?), and that's all I can think of right now.

So, I guess I am a little bit of a classical fan.

I'm listening to Canon in D at the moment.... great piece of music. If ever there was a one hit wonder of the classical world, Pachelbel was him.

I also like Handel's Messiah. Always try to get to a performance around Christmas time.

There is a different dimension to this style of music that a lot of people dont understand: Because there are no intellectual property rights, anyone with musical talent or otherwise can make a recording so you get a lot of variation of quality and style even in the same original piece of music.

As a general rule I buy, if possible, the version by The Academy of Ancient Music, then second is The Academy of St.Martin-in-the-fields, then any of the German published recordings like Deutsche Grammarphon etc.

Anyone else have preferred labels?

I don;t know enough about it but I love it.

even the off beat stuff, like Mozart Camerengo.(latin classical)

Debussy from OCEANS 11

Um, there is another that comes to mind,...I posted about it a while ago, a rather sensual classical song but it escapes me right now.

I sure do like the stuff - pieces by Mozart, Vivaldi and later (not strictly classical) composers like Puccini and Verdi are just splendid. Much of what is listened to today can't compare.

However, the stuff I listen to most is probably Celtic music. I have a large collection of it and play some (bagpipes).

Sure do, I'm a fan of most all the American composers of the early 20th century, especially Aaron Copland. "Appalachian Spring," "Fanfare for the Common Man," and "Rodeo" are some of the most emotional works in music to me. I also love Tchaikovsky, his Violin Concerto never fails to send shivers down my spine and I find it amazing that it was critically panned. I also like Debussy, Strauss, Wagner, and Verdi.

I'm a fan. I sing classically and have an orchestral approach to playing my trumpet. For someone who's looking to update their collection, I'd highly recommend anything Mahler performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra between the 60's and 70's. The brass section, flanked by Bud Herseth on the high end and Arnold Jacobs on the low end, was an absolute dynasty that may never be paralleled. The whole section had unmatched chemistry in terms of sound, attacks, and style. Simply incredible Wow! !!!

I love classical music, singing in a chamber choir (25-30 members). We regularly do oratoriums and passions.

Currently we are working on the Elijah (Mendelssohn), some pretty difficult stuff there!


Favorite pieces that we have performed in the past:

Handel's Messiah
Bach's St Matthew and St John's Passions
Telemann's St. Matthew Passion
John Rutter's Feel the Spirit. (We actually had the privilege being conducted by the composer.)

It's true, it takes a special understanding and experience to really be able to comprehend what classical music is. What it is is an expression of emotion - it's art. Just like paintings, poetry - music is art, and classical music is quite an unconcealed, raw-emotion art form.

Over the years since I've become a musician, I've come to know and understand classical music and the art form more. It's just amazing!

I used to hate opera - I didn't understand it. Now, I've come to understand it more and I absolutely LOVE opera! I'm currently working on a Rossini opera clarinet solo piece - just beautiful.

I'm also very into piano solos, and I'd have to say Chopin's Nocturne in C# Minor gets me going every time. Nocturne in E-Flat major is also very nice, and Valse op.69-1 "l'adieu" brings wonderful images to mind. Albeniz's Tango is also a favorite, I'm working on that now.

Anyways, I'm done. I could go on for days talking about this stuff Big grin

Yes, but generally the later stuff from the Romantic period on up to more early American music (Copland's era). Also symphonic music (think John Williams)

Beethoven's 7th, 3rd movement

Beethoven's 9th, 4th movement

John Williams himself playing the piano in E.T. The Extraterrestial

Copland's Rodeo Hoedown and Morning on the Ranch

Popular works that the Boston Pops perform (like Final Fantasy VII and Olympic Fanfare and Theme)

Variations on a Korean Folk Song

An American Elegy (Frank Tichelli)

Early Light (Carolyn Bremer)

I've been playing piano for over 10 years and because of that I am very big fan of classical music.
Enjoy playing the piano sonatas and masterpieces.

Vivaldis: 4 seasons songs (especially SPRING) rocks!
Beethovens Moonlight, Waldstein, Appasionatta, Tempest and his symphonies.
Mozarts Piano concertos Number 20 and 21 are my favorites,.
Debussy: Impressionist artist such as Clair De Lune, Cathedeal Engolutie, and Reflect Dans L'eau
Ravel: Bolero, water fountain and bateaux sur l'ocean.
Schuberts Impromtu's and Ave Maria
Pachabel.. well anything else other than canon?
Wagners Tannauser, and Valkryes

Basically anything that has piano in it is happyness to me!
John Williams is also cool too with mega movie hits.



Chance favors the prepared mind.

Let's get some things straight.

George Gershwin's work is not considered to be classical music.

Anybody who doesn't appreciate classical music, is unable to properly appreciate or understand any other kind of music. The work of the classical composers is the foundation upon which contemporary music was built.

Finally, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik may very well be the most logical, brilliant, beautiful work of music ever written.
