    Are any of you classical music buffs? I get on my kicks, but I can certainly appreciate it, and enjoy it on many occasions. One of my personal favorites is Chopin.

    Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra is virtually the only classical-like song I can enjoy these days.

    I'm a sucker for anything with an orchestra, so yes, I like it.

    I love the Canons In D from Pachelbel and I like Tchaikovsky's Ouverture 1812 and The Planets series from Holst ^_^


    (Blame my Physics teacher for getting me into classical music)

    The only classical music I can tolerate is George Gershwin. I like jazz based classical but I hate most classical music. I never enjoy any of the concerts I go to.

    I like anything instrumental, especially classical. Not all, but most. I heard a classical song on the radio in grade 8 and I swear it was the best song I have ever heard in my life. I can't remember how it goes now, but I know if I hear it again, I'll know that's the song. It was pure orgasm in my ears :lol:

    I love the "pirates of the carribean" soundtrack. I'm not that into classical music (or maybe I just didn't try), but sometimes it's pretty cool.
    I think one of the main reasons why I often don't like it is that there aren't any lyrics in it, and I like to sing, so ... :unsure:

    Although I am more of a jazz fanatic, I really enjoy classical, especially because of my background in classical piano. Among the classical composers I like (which also tends to include Baroque, Romantic, and 20th Century artists) are Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, Bartok, Clementi, Haydn, Gershwin, and Tchaikovsky among many others :)

    I think im inspired to download some now :p

    Among my favourite compositions are Schubert's Prelude in F minor, Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, Mozarts 7th, and Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata B)

    I've got a CD of the Boston Pops under the direction of Arthur Fiedler that kicks. It's got the William Tell overture, the 1812 overture, Rimsky-Korsakov's Procession of the Nobles, and some other really classic pieces (including Polovetsian Dances!). I also like Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, a lot of Vivaldi, Beethoven, Brahms, Pachelbel's Canon in D, and the piece I performed for solo/ensemble contest last year--Sergei Rachmaninoff's Vocalise.

    ...I also like opera.

    I am in love with classical music. It amazes me how someone can make music that lasts centuries.

    Sometimes, I like it but if I have to listen to it a long time I can't stand it.

    I love it except I know I'm never going to really get interested in it.
    I get totally blown away when I listen to a good piano or violin peice but I wouldn't really dig deep into it.
