I love ALL of Mozart, Bethoven, Vivaldi, among others but I recently discovered a new piece by Yann Tiersen by the French name of "Comptine d'un autre ete and I LOVE IT. I play the piano but only by ear so this piece is my GOAL I will live it and breath it until I learn it and play it. IT is BEAUTIFUL!!

I love classical music. I like other styles as well, but I've always loved classical. I play violin, but not very well. I'm better at viola. My favorite thing to play on viola is Bach's Cello Suite, the Prelude especially. I need to make a YouTube video of that someday. Probably this summer. On piano, my favorite piece is Fur Elise by Beethoven. On chromatic harmonica, I've been working on Humoresque by Dvorak. And then, on melodica I just finished learning Ave Maria which was really a fun piece to learn.

I cannot play a single instrument, but I absolutely love classical music ever since I "discovered" it in 2005. Actually I love it more than every other musical genre even though my musical taste is quite diverse. My favorite composers are Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler, Beethoven, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Antonin Dvorak and Arvo Pärt. When someone would ask me what my favorite classical work is then it would be Brahms 4th symphony. This piece is really breathtaking in every aspect.

I played violin when I was nine. It was fun for about a year until I got bored. Some days I think about picking it up again. I want to play every instrument well, lol. I do like listening to classic music because of the eccentric finger playing, lol.

I'm a classically trained musician actually :) I play violin and guitar as my main instrument(s), but I also play piano, cell, bass, and viola classically. I like to play a lot of Paganini and Bach... the Bach Partitas and Sonatas are my favorite solo pieces... especially Gavotte en Randeau! (I think you can get the sheet music for free online) I also use my classical training to help me in my other styles that I play. I play a lot of celtic music and modern pop style violin. I also play some exotic instruments like the thumb piano and the didgeridoo :) I have a collection
