Anyone else here who likes listening Classical music? 

 

I began paying real attention to this music little more than a year and a half ago, though I enjoyed it before. So far my favorites have been from the Romantic period, such as Beethoven (though is Late Classic/Early Romantic too), Wagner and Mahler.

 

So who are your favorite composers? Favorite pieces of music?

 

Some music of course, and one of my favorites:

 

Ludwig van Beethoven; 9th Symphony, 1st mov.

It doesn't have any information about the orchestra or who's conducting...

Another one of my favorites:

Mars, The Bringer of War, from The Planets by Gustav Holst. Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by James Levine

I grew up on classical, thanks to my Mom. It's all I listen to when driving and sometimes at a low volume while I sleep.

 

One of my favorites.

^ Nice. I always overlook Gershwin.

 

The sounds of the old style brass and woodwind instruments in this are always interesting to me.

^ The natural horns and trumpets immediately got my attention. Interesting thing! Quite in the baroque style.

The only issue with it is that they get out of tune quite a lot  :ninja: Understandable since those are natural wind instruments very different to their today's counterparts, but there were always these strange moments (those out of tune notes) bothering my ear  :laugh: .

I think the insignificant (to me) dissonance is what make it fun to listen to.

They give it a particular sound indeed. But to me at least those aren't insignificant and they kind of bother me :laugh:  

 

Well, some more music. We're lacking Mozart here :D

(I wish I could have played anything at such a short age though)

 

And great adds. So much talent (and hours of study!) there.

Gustav Mahler - 5th Symphony 1st Mov.

Leonard Bernstein and Vienna Philarmonic.

I'm an anti-talent. I tried at younger age. Or I was just a quitter...But I think it would be much harder to learn now. :( :p
