      Absolutely, Vivaldi's Four Seasons! And my favorite piece ever is Bach's Sleepers Awake, gorgeous.

      All of the above! Plus opera.

      My mom rarely listens to anything written after 1900... some of it rubbed off!

      Has anyone played any of the music of Elias Barreriro?  I received some of his music and I was wondering if anyone else knows this composer? I have never played any of his music sadly I do not know it.

      I listen to and play classical music on guitar. Bach translates very well to guitar as do many other 18th and 19th century composers amongst others.

        I like Bach, along with Beethoven. I like Paul Henry's "Air". Glad someone else likes classical guitar.

    I love classical music. My favorite composer is Prokofiev, although I enjoy the music created by many other classical music composers too.

    Aw! I play it too (classical piano).

    The Germans: Brahms (my favorite), Robert and Clara Schumann(his wife), Bach, Beethoven, Handel

    The Russians: Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Rimsky-Korsakov

    That MAD Austrian from Salzburg: Mozart

    The Americans: Joplin, Gershwin, Copland 

    And then... there is OPERA... Rossini, Verdi, Bizet, Puccini...

    The most beautiful art form - MUSIC!

      I'm glad deep down on the inside that you didn't say Wagner.  I can't really stand him haha

        There is only one piece of music that I love written by Wagner. "Liebestod" from Tristan and Isolde. The chromaticism is fascinating and then that final chord! Ah!!! Other than that, I am not thrilled about the Walkyries or anything else he wrote. smile

          My mother played that piece and I loved it. I enjoy writing to classical music - best when there are no words, otherwise my brain gets distracted. Even in an instrumental version, if the piece does have words my brain puts them in. Distracting... 
          I find I write differently to different composers - for instance, while listening to Bach, I tend to begin much more formally, and be a bit wordier than normal big_smile So I have to go back and edit.
          Once I get going, though, you could set off a bomb and I probably wouldn't notice much.

            That's funny how the brain works with music. In my case, I can't listen to music while I'm writing, reading, trying to go to sleep, or having a conversation. I have perfect pitch, so I'm constantly analyzing the music (chord progression, melody, countermelody, key changes, patterns, etc.) Music doesn't allow me to concentrate on anything else, so I could be looking at the person who's talking to me, and I'll be nodding and all, yet, I'm not listening. Same thing when I attend meetings or someone talks forever... I don't hear the words, just the voice fluctuation. So, yes, I go into "the twilight zone" very often. big_smile

    Obviously I listen to classical music.

    I also listen to world and folk music.

    I do not listen to pop music because I find it inane and irritating.

    I listen to classical most of the time. It's the only music I play. But, when I'm in an energetic and happy mood, I always revert to rock.
