    Hi, I was wondering

    if I could get some Classical music recommendations. Little background - I like mainly piano/ Baroque type. I also love Chopin, Bach, and Satie... if that helps. Thanks in advance ;)

    I've just found the London Philharmonia

    Orchestra youtube channel, and they've got an excellent compilation of instrument guides. Highly recommended for those who share passion for orchestral music. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqR22EoucCyccs5J639SCefaM7mD9dMSz

    Baroque Music gets lumped into Classical

    but I don't. I prefer Baroque era music far more than music from the Classical era.

    I'm that girl in university

    who blasts 5 hours worth of Mozart while doing work or studying. Luckily no one is bothered by it. In fact, my floor mates think it's cool and cute that someone enjoys classic music as much as I do!

    Classical music makes me have out of body

    experiences. It's absolutely incredible. It can make me happy or sad. It can actually make my heart hurt. Or have butterflies. I can't even begin to explain. Just A couple of my thoughts.

    The piano is one of the most beautiful

    and heart-wrenching instruments in the whole of the world. There are some classical pieces which really pull on my heart strings just because of the sound of the keys.

    Do you ever refrain from listening to a certain

    piece too often because you wanna 'save' it for when you want to get inspired by it, and afraid that it will loose its potency if you hear too many times? That was a long phrase lol :)

    I love classical music.

    My classmates think I'm weird for liking, no I mean loving it. It's been my life. The beauty of the music composed by the great composers of all time is the best. No one in my class understand the beauty of classical music.

    I can't even describe in words how much I

    despise rap, pop, etc. Classical music is so much better, it's actually real music. Except for Chopin. I don't really like Chopin (not that he's bad, I just don't like most of his music).

    For me the sweet melodies of Schubert,

    the intensity of Beethoven, and the galant style of Mozart help me to express and re-experience all the beautiful and tormented emotions I have ever known. It helps me re-examine the core of humanity and what is means to love, what it means to lose, and what it means hope.

    So much. I love classical music above all else

    specially orchestra, oh that sounded good. Even without those vocals in classical music, in every waves, in every symphony, in every notes and tones, you could feel as if the music was talking to you and what's more exciting is that you wait for your favorite climax in the music...
