I have noticed that alot of aspiring musicians, and some of my close friends who are into Rock and Metal, also listen to Classical, so I would like some feedback on what composers you enjoy listening to, and weather they inspire creative genius or, just to relax.

Personally I like Gustav Holst, Dimitri Shostakovich, Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, and the occasional Mozart and Bethoven.

I listen to a lot of classical, for enjoyment and inspiration. Mostly, you'll find me listening to: Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Mozart.

I had no idea you liked Classical, man. :p

But yeah, Chopin is excellent. I also love Beethoven. I learned Fur Elise on guitar, but I kind of suck at it, but that's okay. I still really enjoy playing it.

Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky are some of my favourite composers of symphony/orchestral music, but I prefer and recommend bach's violin and cello suites, which also sound good on guitar.

Check out Hector Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, that's a brilliant piece of Romantic music.

cool!!! when are u starting? i think piano is the best thing u can learn cuz it teaches u rhythm so quickly, and 2 clefs at once... how to control both ur hands doin diff stuff at the same time....(not that things like guitar or violin or whatever doesnt make u do this)... and it makes u think so fast

Hey any choral pieces which you'd reccomend to me? Im not sure if choral if the correct word, but I mean with people (choirs) singing in them.

Thanks.

I like Bela Bartok, his piano concertos are furious. haha

I also like Debussy, he's more calm.

But Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Shostakovich, and all those other Russian composers are the ones that I listen to the most.

I've been wanting to get into Alois Haba, Ernest Toch, and Penderecki more.

But I also love romantic composers, Sibelius is probably my favourite one...

btw Toru Takemitsu and Benjamin Britten are also great contemporary composers.

I like guitar composers like Brouwer and Dyens too. Carlo Domeniconi and Philip Houghton write interesting things also.

Rachmaninoff's Vespers, Op 37 is a favorite of mine.

Schubert's Mass in G is very pretty. Complex orchestral parts, too. I've been playing it with my orchestra and it's quite challenging.

Hi

I play piano, but I love Rock Music and my debut is a classical Rock hybrid so this topic is quite fiting.

I love Mozart. He is by far my favourite. I also enjoy Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi and Bach, and enjoy a couple of Beethoven peices.

Heh, almost like my tastes except I'd rather have Rimsky Korsakov instead of Beethoven.

Here's an excellent list of romantic composers from Wikipedia:

The Romantic is great for piano music, but some of the Romantic-era orchestral composers (such as Berlioz and Franck) make some of the most over-the-top, nausiating, and flat-out boring symphonies I've ever heard. Once I had to sit through the entire Symphonie Fantastique, and it is just a terrible piece of music. I just recieved with my orchestra Franck's Symphony in D Minor, and I enjoy maybe 2 1/2 out of 25 pages of it.
