    Trained Classically But Enjoy Rockin' And Fiddlin' Too

    My dad trained me (or abused me?) early to tolerate loud stadium speakers by putting my crib literally inches from his amplifier to train me to sleep in concert conditions.... well it worked.... and it caused some serious inner ear damage too (thanks Dad!). But, it paid off in...

    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...

    Its true i do, But and here's the but.

    . I dont like all of it, even if its the same piece. As i see it. If the music becomes hard going = no distinct melody I soon find the listening without any pleasure and lose interest. I like things simple yes beautiful in musical listening terms. Ill post links of classical...

    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...

    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

    Talks to Me

    Classical music has such a variety of feeling.  I studied music appreciation as a child and took piano and guitar lessons while young.  I enjoy the virtuosity of a classical musician and composer.  There is such a depth of feeling possible with it.  My heart...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Meditative Intent

    Strange But True

    The Source of the Course.

    The fork of the muse that has been unchanged for centuries.  From the mechanical to the manual - the forces to create and genertate these etherial audiao events stirs near raw emotion inthe mind of one who can comprehend the genuis of its creation.

    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 Am So Glad For Youtube

    Listening And Playing

    The first piece I learned on piano was Beethovan, Moonlight sonata.  I have many I like, and my favorites change frequently.  Right now it is Bach, Air. There are many classical pieces I have yet to hear and adore. :-)

    Classical

    I like to listen to classical music, it relaxes me and makes me dream, I like the wordlessness of it, yet it expresses so much feeling and emotion.  Some of the things I like best about it how it makes me feel.  It's as if I'm floating on air and nothing can...

    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...

    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.
