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!
yes, all of it. I especially love baroque.. so calming and beautiful.

definitely...One day 1 of my indian friend started listng to Rabindra sangeet.I didnt undrstnmd a single line of it bt i oved the rhytm...It ws awesome.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
...sure...i luv it...sometimes i'd spin some Vivaldi while doing housework...weird, huh?

Who are the greatest English Composers of classical music to have ever lived?I just love classical music. However it's a pity how little I know about some of the composers. Apart from Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, I know very little bout the rest. So I turn to you.

Music is found in every known culture, past and present, varying wildly between times and places. Around 50,000 years ago, early modern humans began to disperse from Africa, reaching all the habitable continents. Since all people of the world, including the most isolated tribal groups, have a form...

Can music really soothe the beast in us?They say music soothes the savage beast. My personal experience with music has always been upbeat and moving or emotionally driven. How does music fit into your life and does it soothe your soul?
