I think Tosca is a must see for any GsG fan.

I have a scene in an upcoming story where Henrietta is strugging with a Vivaldi piece (probably an excerpt from the Four Seasons concertos).

Personally my favorite is still Peter Tchaikovsky...he was batshit crazy in real life but his music has the power to just overwhelm anyone.

I love classical music, but not so much opera... I've not really hear that much. But I LOVE the classic German and Russian composers (Brahms, Bach, Prokofiev, Mussorgsky)

Yes. I like Bach, Berlioz, Debussy, de Falla, Haydn, Holst, Hovhaness, Rachmaninoff, Saint-Sans and Vivaldi. Burgmuller, Chopin, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky are not bad. Don't care for Beethoven and Mozart.

Well... I was a choral tenor for four years, and could at one point sing the Mozart Requiem from beginning to end: from memory.

Yeah, I don't mind a bit of classical music.

Classical music is ok. I never really choose to listen to it, but I don't hate it. I'm more of a soundtrack person. (John Williams! Awww yeeeeah!!!) Very Happy

I tend to love chamber music in general. My favorite is probably a split between Vivaldi and Debussy, with all the other major composers mixed in there somewhere.

My favorite form of performance art is probably ballet, though, and it has been since I was little. It's language-neutral but still heavily artistic, with nary a dull moment in my eyes. Of course Tchaikovsky is king in that realm, but you're not really experiencing his music unless you see it on a stage.

It's not that I don't like opera, only that it's not nearly as powerful if you don't know the language. Some of the contemporary English-langauge opera by John Adams are quite good, though, as well as a Ira by Roger Waters.

Love classical music. Especially Mozart, Bethoven, Chopin, P.I. Tchaikovsky and Vivaldi. I found classical to be a must for every man that respects himself Wink.

Ooh yeah... a nice chamber string quartet is fantastic to listen to.

@Alfisti: You were a tenor? I sang baritone, for the most part, although I could occasionally fake the funk on a bass part, too. Our chorus did "Halleluia" as well... we had some FANTASTIC tenors, including one who had the most incredible range I've ever heard - he could go from bass to alto in the same breath.

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

I actually happen to be a classical musician to those who don't know that yet lol.
I sing opera and lieder. I also play piano.

Anyway, I do enjoy the classics and all but studying them for four years kinda makes you jaded. My new thing is contemporary composers, composing music in a classical style. Two of my favorites Arvo Prt and Max Richter. Give their stuff a look on youtube. It's very different but it's still very pleasing.

It is a shame that modern composers have such a hard time getting their work noticed.
