I listen to many different genres of music, but classical is one of my favourites. The problem is, I'm the only one who seems to enjoy it. :(

My two current favourite composers are Vivaldi and Claude Debussy.

Am I on my own, or is there anyone else here who likes classical music?

Classical music is great. I'm not very big on music in general, so I don't really know any artists, but I do enjoy listening to it. That, and jazz.

Yeah! I love classical music! It's weird, because in my playlists, you'll find Mozart, Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky and then scroll down bit, and you'll find Megadeth, Motley Crew and Rage Against The Machine ;) and oh! it's a dream to play classical music in LBP create mode ;)

How weird! I'm learning the exact same things on guitar at the moment! (except I'm learning Cannon Rock in D, instead of the classical version) :eek: I love Fur Elise! It's a great piece to play on guitar even though it's originally from piano :D

I like classic music too. My father's favourite one is Docata D-mol which i enjoy too.

I think that classical music can still impress today. I don't like how todays music exploid the BOM BOM BOM of your bass-box desperately trying to impress you in some way.

Classical music just uses awesome orchestras, instruments and melodies to play with your heart and soul.

I only like it in movies... if you know what i mean :p

Doesn't mean it sounds bad when it's not in a movie, but it's not really my thing if you know what i mean :D

yeah i like classical music
i just dont think it should be called classical.
in a sense it makes it seem like has to made a long time ago and it is old
but people are writing this kind of music all the time and its great

i like philip glass
his music is so awesome
you can listen to different stuff from him and and its just that totally different in style and original.

Classical music is great!
A couple composers that haven't been mentioned yet: Saint Saens (Carnival of the Animals, Danse Macabre), Sergej Prokofiev (he did Battle on the Ice - the epic song in LBP), Bach, and Chopin. And of course Beethoven and Mozart, but those are a given ;)

Also, I love film/video game music even more. John Williams, James Horner, Michael Giacchino, Jerry Goldsmith, Jeremy Soule, Harry-Gregson Williams and lots more.
I think my favorite video game soundtrack is Super Mario Galaxy (I had a wii before I sold it). The melodies are just fantastic in that game.
My favorite film soundtrack has to be Star Wars IV, V, and VI (John Williams). They awe me every time I listen. A great song in the soundtrack is "Return of the Jedi". So amazing.

I'm actually a composer, so I'm constantly listening to classical/film music (as well as rock, and lots of other stuff including the occasional hip hop and rap song). I'm 16, so I'm not actually a composer by profession (yet). But I plan on going to music school to become a composer.

I like chamber music rather than full blown orchestral music as well as the more minimalist and avant garde composers like Phillip Glass, Steve Reich and John Cage.

Beethoven's 3rd is my favourite, but I also like a lot of Mahler as well. My Dad brought me up with classical music, now I can thank him for it.

@Sosaku - Phillip Glass is great!

Dude! You're like a real sneaky ghost on here haha.

Hmm, i don't listen to classical music, the closest thing to that is soundtrack music. Such as this:
YouTube - Sunshine Soundtrack "John Murphy - The Surface Of The Sun"

Actually, it's ok, just not the type of music i listen to casually...

I really like classical music, especially if it's a piano song. Some people back then had really great talents on the piano.:p I don't have any of the songs though, in fact, I don't really have any songs on my ipod etc. I just listen to music casually.
