    Classical music!

    So that's it.
    Do you like classical music? If so, which are your favorite composers/interprets?

    I really love Chopin, I play it since I started playing piano again. Here you have a nice recopilatory of 2 hours with his best pieces. My favourite interpret, without any doubt, is Valentina Lisitsa. He has also a YouTube channel. Plus, she's beautiful!

    Oh, Valentina, I'd like to be like you. You play and look like angels!

    I also like Tchaikovsky. Here you have another recopilatory of him
    What about you?

    Re: Classical music!

    I love classical music.

    My favourite composers are many - that's the beauty of it, there's so much variety. Not all of my favourites are stritly classical but here's a list of great composers from the past and present.

    J S Bach
    W A Mozart
    L van Beethoven
    Thomas Tallis
    William Byrd
    G F Handel
    Arvo Part
    Steve Reich
    Igor Stravinsky
    R Vaughan Williams
    John Adams

    There are so many more, but that's a few to start with.

    Yup, I'm a big fan. Although bizarrely, rock music also does it for me.

    Favourite composers would probably include Beethoven (love his piano works), Liszt, and Chopin.

    I used to play classical piano, but exams and a lack of time ended up in me giving up. I intend to get back in to it, probably once I've gone through university.

    I'm a classical (as well as other types) music fan. With a few exceptions I mostly prefer 19th century and earlier composers.

    I remember seeing a live performance of The Great Waltz in the Drury Lane Theatre back in 1971, during a family visit to London.

    The musical tastes in the Lisati household are wide and varied, with a bit of "classical" music thrown in for good measure every now and again, but operatic works are low on the list of things to listen to. I don't mind listening to the occasional piano concerto: on a delayed broadcast of a concert I attended that included Beethoven's "Emporer" concerto (#5) many years ago, long before I met Mrs Lisati, I'm sure I heard myself coughing.
