Nowadays anything that's 'old' and instrumental is called classical, so although my favorite older instrumental music is technically romantic, I'll throw it out on here anyway. My all time favorite composers are Brahms, Liszt, Chopin, and Shubert, so yeah that period is a big deal for me, I love piano character pieces.

If we're going legit classical I choose Haydn over Beethoven and even Mozart, the man knew chamber music, that's undeniable. His string quartets .

Currently I'm addicted to Annie Fischer's Appassionata by Beethoven.

Yeah Liszt is great. I'm really into Annees de Pelerinage, and Transcendental Etudes:

YouTube - Berezovsky - Liszt - Transcendental Etude No 4, Mazeppa

For Brahms I'm getting into these pieces:

YouTube - Martha Argerich plays Brahms Rhapsody in G minor

YouTube - Artur Schnabel (1882-1951) Brahms Intermezzo op.117-1 rec.1947 06

For the life of me I haven't been able to get into Haydn. I don't know what it is but I haven't found any pieces that have made me interested. I guess everyone is different.

Anyone familiar with Christopher O'Riley? Hes a classical pianist that has arranged Radiohead songs on Piano. They're really quite beautiful. I have 2 of his albums, though he might have more out

YouTube - Christopher O'Riley - Exit Music (For A Film)

I prefer Chris O'Riley classical music takes over those dumb U2 classical music CDs. It also offers a breather from listening to the Radiohead versions too often.

I see I've yet to post in this thread. I'm gonna follow in Crashed Car Driver's inexplicable footsteps and bump it just to post one video.

This Steve Reich piece is astonishing:

Steve Reich, Different trains mvt I : America - Before the War - YouTube

The use of strings to illustrate movement while time flies via sampled storytelling is brilliant. Lovely music, well executed concept.

This is the time of year where I start to dig into more music like this. I'm more knowledgeable about modern classical than the canonized works (Philip Glass is probably my favorite composer), but I'm open to whatever.

This is one of my favorite albums.

http://www.amazon.com/Vivaldi-Concer.../dp/B000005Z36

I like concertos much more than symphonies.

Alright, it took me a minute to find that, but I've got it now. Will be listening to that while I do some fun, fun, FUN data entry work today.

I really enjoyed this, though I did still have some of the same problems I mentioned before. Namely that, despite whatever may have been the case at the time of the composing, his works are inherently linked with generic ye olde Europe scenes from movies, for me, at this point.

But, whatever, straight through, very good.

Listen to the new A Winged Victory for the Sullen if you're in a classical space. I think you'll love it
