    Classical Music thread

    Anyone else here into Classical music?

    Have developed a soft spot for early music myself (Monteverdi, Palestrina and Dufay in particular)

    Have always loved the symphonies of Brahms, Chopin's Preludes op 28 and the concertos of J.S. Bach.

    Many others too but wanted to see if others round here had much of an interest

    Classical music used to be useful in the 70's. Test Match Special was on Radio 3 because it was on two wavelengths. The cricket would be on one and classical music on the other. If you were out armed with only a radio you knew if classical music was playing instead of Test Match Special it was raining.

    I listen to Piano music (solo piano and piano concerto).

    Favorite composers are Chopin (by far favorite) followed by Debussy and some Schubert, Beethovan, Ravel, Mozart, Satie and Bach (although technically he never composed for piano).

    For concerto, it's all Mozart.

    I have never been able to get into other genres of Classical like Opera, symphonies, vocal or violin despite trying. I guess it can't be forced

    I don't listen to much classical, but I love Erik Satie's compositions.

    For anyone who is interested in solo piano, this is a great playlist to start. It features 3.5 hours of music that includes some of the most famous pieces in classical canon.

    Nice, glad you enjoyed.

    On a related note, does anyone know of any contemporary classical composers?

    I know Johnny Greenwood dabbled in it a bit, but I am keen to learn more.
