that reminded me. I was looking through old piano music the other day in my piano bench and I found the well-tempered claviere, a really old version of it, falling apart. it excited me because we learned about it in my music theory class, and then it was just sitting in my bench.

I thoroughly enjoy Yanni's piano playing.

A CD from the 90s called "In My Time" is absolutely breath-taking.

Absolutely.

oh, mine is in a very good state. And it has terrible fingering notes by Andras Schiff, he likes to make things more difficult than they already are, really extrange, I guess that's because he's a hell of a piano player and I'm not

hahaha, I have trouble like that with the cello. when I was still taking classical lessons (I stopped about five years ago, I just play irish music now) I would never do the right fingerings, I'd skip second and third position unless they couldn't possibly be avoided. I have the world's laziest technique.

^well, lets leave the impossible fingerings for the virtuosos

Currently I'm discovering the alpen symphony by Richard Strauss. I hadn't heard much of him apart from the typical also sprach zarathustra and a few more things. It's really good, the beginnig is absolutely incredible.

Since many youngins can't stand classical, I know that kids my age enjoy Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Incredibly magical and amazing music!

Enya's instrumentals are beautiful. Specifically "Watermark" and "A Day Without Rain."

I think that was the same with me. I started the piano when I was about 6, and now I'm 17, so yeah, it's been a pretty long time and whenever someone told me to listen to Classical Music, I'd start to groan and say 'not again!!' but I think that was because I was very serious about learning Classical music that I couldn't stand to hear anymore of it. But now I've finished learning, Classical music is the best companion to study with , and there are so many works I like from so many composers spanning from the Baroque through to the neo-classical period (and beyond!)

Do you mean Classical violin as in with examinations? I don't think I would have coped if I learnt traditional Violin as well as piano!

Well, as I said previously, I started piano when I was 6, finished piano when I was 16 with my L.MUS.A (woo!), started violin in year 4, (did the Suzuki Method) and if you count the recorder as a serious instrument, I played 3 of them, and I sing!:p but only in Madrigals and Choirs, heavens, I don't think you'll find me singing solo anytime soon. Yep. Music has played a pretty big part of my life.

I like Stravinsky, Le sacre du printems and L'oiseau de feu.
And at the moment I hear Die Zaubeflöte from Mozart everywhere.

Classial music is something I really need to be in the mood for though..
Mostly played in the evening/night..

Finally I've found someone who loves classical music! Everyone I know irl doesn't even care about it..

My favorites are mostly piano/violin concertos...

-Shumann Piano Concerto in A Minor(cadenza is my favorite)
-Grieg Piano Concerto
-Every Brahms Symphonies (especially no.4)
-Brahms Violin Concerto (I'm learning it right now...and it's so difficult!)
-Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
-Every Rachmaninoff Piano Concertos
-Schubert Impromptus no.2 D.935
-Everything by Tchaikovsky (symphony no.6 "Pathetique", nutcracker, romeo and juliette, swan lake... Truly magical...)
-Debussy 'Beau Soir' and 'La Mer'
-Chopin Piano Concerto no.2
-Chopin Piano Sonata no.2
-Beethoven 'Waldstein'
-'La Mamma Morta' by Maria Callas...I cry every time I listen to this..
-Everything from opera 'Carmen', 'The Magic Flute', 'Madam Butterfly' and 'Tosca'
-Beethoven Symphony no.5, no.9(esp. conducted by Herbert Von Karajan!)

still...I have a lot to know...I have no idea about half of the composers mentioned here...

Has anyone seen the movie called 'Vier Minuten'? (aka. 'Four Minutes') It's a German movie about a prisoner who is very gifted at playing piano...love this movie.

I play the flute and piano and am a great fan of classical music. My favourite pieces are the Pomp and Circumstance Marches by Elgar; Mars, Jupiter and Neptune from Holst's Planets Suite; 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky and The Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens.

^ well, he composed some of the most marvelous string quartets, although I love his piano concerto as well.

I found Tchaikovsky's piano concerto 2&3 and string quartet no.3 ridiculously underrated such a shame that the intro of piano concerto 2, mov 2 was cut out in many recordings. It's utterly beautiful.

also, I recently finished Bruch violin concerto and started learning Korngold violin concerto, which I loved. The more I learn, the more I enjoy

Mostly at the beginning with the footsteps..
