I Love Classical Music

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,874 People

    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).

    I always love when I hear musicians from the

    present day and not too distant past paying tribute to the musical gods of yesterday. Be it Metallica honoring Holst or KISS channeling Beethoven.

    when I go to sleep and now my 4 year old daughter loves to listen to "pretty" music too!

    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.

    I've been hearing on loop "Music

    for the Funeral of Queen Mary" by Henry Purcell, one of my favourites, the very solemnity of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aPhVoxFqxA "In the midst of life, we are in death"

    I sincerely think that classical music is the

    real music ... Its another strong evidence that good music never gets old. People back then were so talented...Thats called REAL talent. I recently watched the new miley cyrus video (the song is called "BB talk" for those of u who want to know).... Well i am disappointed... I...

    The moment the jurors announced the result of

    the Chopin International Competition 2015, my heart sank a trillion miles. My favorite competitor, Szymon Nehring, did not receive any "real" prize apart from the audience prize. In fact, I was outraged knowing he wasn't even awarded the 6th prize. Don't get me wrong, I...

    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.

    Its very calming when you are stuck in rush

    I've been listening to a sweet classical music

    mix most of today, and it's made doing the housework much more pleasant! I might cook dinner to the lovely melodies, too. It's great because tv has been getting more boring each day, so it's nice to have something sweet to the ears playing in the background that makes everyday...

    Classical music is the only type of music

    that I will let hit my ears. You could call me a classical music snob, and that's fine. It soothes, it focuses me, and it's civilized.

    I've just found the London Philharmonia

    Usually when I hang out with my friends,

    they always talk about the new music a popular artist has released and it's usually pop music. I like pop music too but I like classical music more. When I want talk about my favorite classical musician, they just ignores me because they aren't interested. But still, I'm proud...

    If I had lived when Liszt was still alive,

    and I had the opportunity to go to one of his performances, I definitely would have been in the 'swooning ladies' group XD

    I've always loved classical music,

    even when I was young. My mother was never much of an artist or very into music, but, when she did listen to music, it was always classical. Once I got a little older, probably around middle school, I completely stopped listening to classical music. I still loved it, but it wasn...

    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!

    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.
