    Hi guys, Newbie to Classical Music here,

    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

    I really do, if you asked me

    if I knew so and so I probably wouldn't know. But because I don't know certain composers doesn't mean I don't enjoy it or that I'm making it up. (Why would I?) Anyways though it seems humorous my favorite cd on classical music is called Pet Tunes (music for animals) Calming...

    Gnossiennes No. 4, 5 ~ Erik Satie Pianist:

    Daniel Varsano No. 4 is rather dark and melancholy, my favorite to play when I'm down. Used to scare my youngest sister when she was small; she thought it sounded "sinister". No. 5, which I also love to play is more upbeat, even a bit mischievous. Interesting that the...

    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.

    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.

    Classical music-- requiems,

    overtures, masses, and I think an adagio-- has saved my brain during a recent crisis. Before, I appreciated the great composers only when the time was right. Placed into an audience, usually on a ticket someone else had bought, with the music right in front of me, yes, I found...

    Zoltán Kodály - Háry

    János suite. A childhood favourite, and full of exciting tunes...and musical ideas...and textures, never mind unusual instruments. Nothing outlandish but this must have been exciting to listen to in a concert hall...

    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 :)

    Here's what gets me..

    ..younger people seem to like classical more than baby boomers. I am a 38 yr old piano teacher so I see both ends of the age spectrum. I really think classical has made a serious comeback in population culture, which is encouraging to me.

    Okay. We must all listen to Chopin's Nocturne:

    No. 20 in C-Sharp Minor. It's classic. And it puts you in the most amazing headspace.

    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.

    I've found that listening to really upbeat

    music, like pop, and stuff, makes my anxiety worse, and I always used to listen to it when I felt an anxiety attack coming along, and it never really helped. But listening to classical music is really relaxing, honestly, some songs make me depressed, idk. But others, if you...

    I have always loved classical music.

    I guess because it was something totally different I grew up listening to. I fell pregnant 2013 with a beautiful girl. A friend of mine encouraged me to play classical music to her whilst pregnant. I did this so much because my little angel loved it. She would kick and move...

    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!
