Favourite piece of classical music?


[sign in to see URL]'t really know if any of you guys go for classical but hey, I'm trying here. Anyways, besides from listening to trance music lately I have also been listening to classically composed music .

Here's who/what I've been listening to from some dead composers:

Claude Debussy - Very nice piano sets, his composed music is featured in a lot of films, or so I've heard.

Bach - He's real old school, and he never composed a piece of music that I don't like.

Beethoven - Crazy m*therfucker. Nough said.

Two of my favorite classical tracks

Gloomy Sunday (1930's) - A very sad piece by who, I've forgot. Worth a listen when feeling down, I suppose.

Abinoni-Adagio in G minor (1770's) - Wow, amazing. I first heard a remix of this piece of music on a trance album I bought last year and just had to listen to the composed piece. Beautiful. Again, it hits a nerve, makes the hair stand up on my neck, and brings me close to tears (well, kinda).


Check these out….This music isn’t boring, not just for old biddies – it was the electro of its time. Be thankful, we been left with some great music here.

Re: Favourite piece of classical music?


my favorite piece of classical music would have to be pachebels canon in d major, they have different versions of this, some just piano or string & even a techno version, but i like the original version, many people use it at their weddings.. but i first heard it when i was back in high school taking a creative writing course & the teacher used to have us listen to music & then we would have to write our thoughts or a story or poem that like the music inspired or made us see & that piece just really stuck with me

So you're not an old biddie, Alex?

Someone said that classical music actually raises the listener's IQ, if only for a short time. Several of my high school English teachers liked to play music during the first fifteen minutes of class. During this time, the students(me included) were ordered to write in "journals"(we could write anything, and BOY DID I GET CARRIED AWAY!).

Badinerie is one of my favorite classical pieces. I've heard a version of this done [sign in to see URL]. Beethoven's Rondo is another favorite. I've listened to Fantasia(I don't recall the [sign in to see URL] MP3 labelling..) once a day for the past two weeks. Why? I don't know.

[sign in to see URL] years old next year. I just meant classical music, well in my country at least, is pushed or seems to be aimed towards the older generations.

Fantasia is by [sign in to see URL] think.

Hah! I'm older than you.

The American classical music audience is probably comprised of mostly older folk. This isn't done by design, though, because the music is simply pitched in a very classical way(without sex, violence, and anger) to a small and sophisticated(sp?) audience.

Oh come on, 23 is still young - It's just that you may feel old because maybe you haven't achieved something you wanted to do at this time in life. I get like this, though now I’m learning to drive and planning trips abroad. I keep myself busy. Just plan, save money and follow your heart is my advice. Time will pass smoothly.


Though I don’t know, I’m only just nineteen.

Very worldly advice from a nineteen-year-old. In my part of the world, people will almost say that twenty is old and that after your eighteenth birthday, you may as well die. Of course, a person can't succumb to the eighteen-year-old-age without getting a driver's license. I can see that so many people walk around without ambition or dreams of any kind, and they only apply themselves to petty ends. It almost sounds like one of Romero's zombie films.
