Any Classical Music Lovers out There???

Everyone always talks about rock, pop, rap (etc.) I was just wondering if anyone likes classical? I grew up with it so I love it and know it very well. I listen to a little of everything but as my mother was a ballerina and my father a top violinist I kinda have no choice but to love this genre of music.

i'm not sure if she did or not, (my mother died in april of this year) but she loved the mso more then her own kids!!!!, I wish that I could remember the name of the violinist ( really young) who played a Stradivarius that was on loan to him.

I really, really love classical and almost anything instrumental! I have been playing guitar for about 20 years and really love fingerpicked classical guitar music. I also play a little violin. Drums, piano, ducimer (mountain), and play some traditional Irish and Scottish music on my penny whistles. I have about 27 whstles in different keys.

Hmmm... A topic of music is great on this site. I'll have to post some pics of my instruments when I find them...lol...

I found some pics...
From left to right... Dulcimer, Violin is leaning on me Bodhran, whistles, effects pedal, 12 string acoustic, and my baby, 6 string acoustic (awesome tone, clarity, and sustain) and my foot stool.



This is me playing a little and my wife sneaking pictures. You can see my drum set behind me and my violin resting on the pa system. My other guitars on the wall and to the extreme left is my bass.

I love Classical music, I don't know much about it though, all of the B minor things kinda throw me for a loop ^_^

Moonlight Sonata is my favorite song, I also like Molto Vivace.

well I play the cello and if any of you know what this is my dad got second place in the queen elizabeth contest when he was a bit younger. He was a child prodegy on the violin and was totally amazing haha. My favorite piece of music would have to be from coppelia. I love that and a lot of others. I especially love music from ballets...

I have a small box collection of music from different ballet's, I'll have to look for the one from Coppelia and see if it's on there. I really like the one from Swan Lake Have you heard Violin-Romance no1? It's by Beethoven, I think that's the name of the song, that's how it pops up on my computer anyway.

Classical in general is not my favorite, far from it, really (I'm into metal...). But some of my overall favorites are classical.

As in...
Adiago for strings in G minor by Albinoni
Lacrimosa by Mozart
Winter from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi
La Mer by Debussy
Minuet in G minor by Bach
Ouverture from Suite for flute and strings in A minor by Telemann

I love Telemann Suite, but I haven't been able to find it ANYWHERE. If anyone knows where I can download/buy it, I'd appreciate it. It's a really gorgeous piece, and I'm proud to say I can play it on the flute! It was the honors band audition piece...
And I can play Bach's Minuet in G minor on the piano. It's pretty, easy, I know, but more of my playing style...

So, yeah, overall it has to be powerful and minor for me to appreciate it. :)
