    My first thread here. I came here looking for solutions for suicide, and instead discovered none of you people love classical music!

    This thread belongs to the people who found sustenance in Mozart. Belief in Beethoven. The way to another life through Mahler. The reality of life and the universe through Wagner.

    Let rip (preferably via Bach)

    I love classical music, especially Wagner, Brahms, Mendelsohn, Mozart and Beethoven, in fact there is no genre of music I particularly dislike with the exceptions of Heavy Metal and Bhangra. :(

    I mostly like stuff from the baroque era. Bach, Purcell, Rameau, Teleman, Handel, that kinda thing. I'm a classically trained singer but I haven't performed since I was 17 cos of depression and whatnot.

    Terry: an opera fan too? If you like Shakespeare, we must be soulmates.

    That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

    I dunno. I'd rather hold my manhood than be in the middle of a war.

    I love modernish stuff like Britten, Philip Glass, Steve Reich. Not really into Mozart and Beethoven and that kind though :mellow:
    I really like Holst's The Planets as well :biggrin: I've only gotten into classical I don't know much about it yet.

    aki: Phillip Glass is great, and I'm not sure (I heard this on a classical show) but he's supposedly used a lot of themes from Beethoven in his music. Which is fine since Beethoven borrowed from Mozart. It's all good. Try Dvorak, 9th symphony, 2nd movement, it's quite beautiful.
