Classical Music

Does anybody enjoy classical music?
I've been a fan of classical since grade 10... so about 3 years ago
But I'm very deep into it. I have about 80 cds, 50 hours of music on my computer, a couple of books on classical music, and a few instruments

Shostakovich is my favorite composer
Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 is my favorite Symphony
Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 is my favorite Concerto
Brahm's Academic Festival Overture is my favorite Overture
and Mozart's Requiem is my favorite piece with vocals

I'm not a fan of singing though. It angers me.
:D

I enjoy classical music as well.

Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 was the first classical music I remember hearing. I still enjoy it.

Mozart is my favorite composer and his piano concerto #21 is my favorite piece of classical music.

That is a video of the first half of the first movement of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1
It is played by Evgeny Kissin when he was just 16 years old
The links to the other movements are in there too
Enjoy :D

Cool

Mozart is great. I have a few friends really obsessed with him, it is quite funny. He wrote some great stuff but I just don't find it as good as alot of others. I almost feel as if he concentrated more on Quantity instead of Quality. I know that isn't true... but you should know where I am coming from.

From time to time I do enjoy it a bit. I became interested in Beethoven 'fur elise' when my daughter was studying classical music, but also enjoy all the artists you have mentioned. Why would it anger you to sing it? Cant hit the notes?

I've got a degree in classical music. Baroque and Renaissance music make my car shake to its axles. I won a scholarship to Oxford as a Bass-baritone,but spent far more time having fun than actually studying! I once sang in the Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and I-cant-eve-n-remember-where in Chicago with the London Bach Society.

My favourites? Well Vivaldi takes a lot of beating; Dowland's lute suites are the perfect answer to a long, hard day; Beethoven's string quartets are wonderful up lifters and Frederic Chopin's Studies are the most amazing pieces ever created for the piano.
If you want to listen to an extraordinary piece of music, listen to Monteverdi's "Vespers".

Im a Tchaikovsky fan also. Im not too well versed in the ways of classical music yet, so i can't rattle off any symphony numbers.
