    Great Music -- And Funny Performance, Too

    Victor Borge was a classic. He played well but made it very humorously entertaining as well. I consider myself fortunate to have seem him perform live way back when.

    I Go To Concerts Alone

    Few of my friends share my love for classical music. So, I go to concerts, sit alone, and enjoy the symphony Orchestra play the heavenly music in peace. Sometimes I wish I had someone to share the moment with but most of the time I'm just having to much fun to think about that...

    The Classic Composers

    A few years ago I received this CD in the mail containing Mozart songs. It had a book to go with it. I liked the CD and decided to get more. Every three weeks I would receive two CDs in the mail. Eventually the collection went to 63 CDs of various composers from Vivaldi in...

    Skaters Waltz

    My awareness of classical music came from listening to Christmas music and grew from there.  My family was always at its closest at this time of year.We would put the Montovani Record on, light some candles, turn the tree on, shut out the lights and the room became magical as...

    Emotion Without Words

    Music in one of its finer forms. Beautiful, simple yet intricately complex, and such a conveyor of emotion that certain pieces were banned long ago for fear of inciting unsolicited rushes of feelings that weren't exactly prudent for the time. It soothes me, and it moves me.

    Fur Elise By Beethoven - (beautiful Piano)

    Someone once said, I don't know art, but I know what I like.  Well, I don't know classical music, but I know what *I* like.  And I like this piece.  It is one of my favorites.

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 21

    Some nights, I feel so relaxed and peaceful, as if nothing could bother me in the entire world.  I pour a glass of Sangiovese and I turn on music like this and begin to dream about another time. ~Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 performed by Netherlands Chamber Orchestra

    My knowledge of classical music is shockingly

    bad. However it doesn't stop me enjoying that feeling of being completely emerged in a beautiful piece of classical music. I have recently taken to putting classic fm on and relaxing for an hour with a book. It is amazing how much that can ease so much that goes on in an over...

    I love all types of music.  Classical is part of the list.  I love the violin and the cello.  I have since I was a child.  When I hear certain songs with violin or cello it stirs something within me.  I can't explain it, only that it's such a beautiful feeling...  I...

    Indian Classic Music..

    Music is food for the soul. Indian classical music does just that to you. Every pull of the string and every swara will strike a chord in your heart. When we speak of Indian classic music, we are primarily referring to "pure music" or "ragdaari music". Commonly known as Indian...

    Don't Know Much Though

    I really don't know much about classical music, so it's tough for me to decipher what's a sonata and what's a concerto.  All I know is I like to listen to it.  It soothes me quite a lot.  I particularly like woodwinds, perhaps since I played bassoon for a few...

    Yes

    I like listening to it when my other music just doesn't cut it. When I'm really calm, classical music is great but I listen to everything except for three or four genre's that just don't do it for me. <3 music.

    I Am So Glad For Youtube
