Well, mebbe this thread has already been created...so feel free to lock it, my dear moddies.
But who/what is your favourite classical piece/composer? Do you play any classical music?
Do you like classical music? Do you hate it? Talk about anything and everything classical here!
I play the piano, so I play some/a lot of classical music.
Some of my favorite composers to PLAY are Debussy, Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Saint-Saens, Dvorak, and Gerswhin! (I've played songs by all of the above...although I've never really officially played through a Chopin song...too distracted.)
As you can tell from the above list...I'm not as much into "Classical Period" music. Yes, I've played it. Yes, I understand the technical wonders of it. No, I still don't like it. Just seems too mechanical to me.
Me and a friend are playing Royal March of the Lion, The Aquarium, and Fossils from Saint-Saens's Carnival of the Animals. I'm so excited. YAY! AND I just found the music for his "Danse Macabre." So...we may be playing that for fun sometime.
So, what's your take on all this. Frankly, it's just an excuse for me to gush about what I listen to/play a lot. YAY!
