    Every time I'm listening to Scriabin's "Le

    poeme de l'extase" I cry and am willing to die of extasy.

    I am wounded to the core.

    My great dream is to listen to Scriabin's opuses live, but no one performs it here where I come from. P.S. Prescription for today: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov – "Sheherazade" symphony suite.

    I just hate it when people at school blast

    really loud rap, screamo or pop :/ it either bored me or makes me wanna walk out. I prefer operas or the classics. Maybe disney, if I'm bored. I'll admit, I'm no expert when it comes to music, but seriously, IM GETTING TIRED OF HAVING GO EITHER WEAR MY HEADPHONES OR MOVE TO...

    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 can't get enough of Glenn Gould.

    Listening to the entire Goldberg Variations for the third time in the last two days. There's literally no playing like his. So clear and articulated, full of energy and passion. What's your favorite album of Glenn?

    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.

    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 :)

    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 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.

    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 had the privilege of watching Idil Beret in

    concert a few weeks ago. She played only Chopin, but his lesser-known works. However, the programme was almost entirely virtuosic in style and I would have liked some more expressive pieces to balance it out. I can't believe her energy and technique! And she's 74 and still going...

    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.

    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-- 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...

    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.

    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...

    neo-classical music is what i like.

    HOWEVER, unlike a lot of classical music fans, i do not think my tastes are superior to anyone elses. i heavily dislike anyone who is a music snob, or anyone who is constantly complaining about what younger kids like. its simply very rude u_u;
