    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.

    Classical music speaks to my soul.

    It reminds me of my own mortality. Listening to a requiem mass in a live concert is like an out of body experience. I once dated a violinist who played in a professional orchestra. It was such a wonderful experience listening to her make beautiful music. The romantic soul in me...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    The song Declaration of Love Alfred Schnittke

    some may say is a little sadder than it needs to be for a declaration of love but I think it very accurately portrays how it feels. It reminds more of an unrequited love, that you are confessing. It hurts but there are bits of happiness that you were able to tell the one you...

    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

    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.

    or 9 years now and I really enjoy classical music. The latest song I've found that I really like is Lacrimaosa. I really like classic music with Latin lyrics. What's your favorite song?

    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.
