I Love Classical Music

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,223 People

    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.

    Has anyone noticed that the first three notes

    in Ed Sheeran's 'Tenerife Sea' are the same as the beginning of the last movement of Mozart's 'Jupiter' Symphony?

    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.

    Vivaldi

    I love this guy.  The Four Seasons is my favorite work by him, particularly the Summer Concerto.  There's just so much passion in his works.

    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...

    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...

    Ode To Joy

    I picked up my 11 year old son from basketball tonight. While we drove my Ipod Touch randomly skipped through tracks and Beethoven's "Ode to Joy Final Chorus" played. My son was disappointed because he had a bad practice. I told him to forget about it and listen to the music...

    I'm a classically trained violinist,

    so loving classical music is logical. I've played since age 8 and I'm 35 now. Studied at the Conservatory of Music and I am a instrumental teacher. So I work at a local music school. I've played in many orchestras, string quartets and chamber orchestras. I also play the viola...
