    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...

    A Great Fall Back

    Sometimes today's music can become so outrageous it's pathetic  so I'm just glad I can fall back on the classics . especially while reading a book help me get lost faster and want to stay longer.

    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...

    Classical is music's equivalent to the little

    black dress, and the double-breasted suit/ blazer or the cuff-links to the shirt. Everything classical music encounters is made somehow more elegant and polished while in it's midst. Classical music, is beauty in sound.

    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.

    Not all of it but some.

    It can soothe the weary soul. Lighten the anger in my heart. Make me breathe a sigh of relief after day I'd like to forget.

    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. :-)

    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.

    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...

    both calm down as well as focus. When I see someone young playing violin or piano, it renews my faith in humanity a little. Classical is the only kind of music I listen to as I believe it's the only real music out there. The feeling of culture and refinement washing over me are...

    Don't Know Much Though

    Fur Elise By Beethoven - (beautiful Piano)

    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.

    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
