Generally yes.

I just love classical music because it's calming your mind, and how the music could manipulate your feeling, it's just magical. The music is a supplement for the ear.

I was raised around classical music, and although I never got into classical music in general (I rarely listen to whole symphonies and I don't spend much of my music time listening to classical music), I loved playing some classical songs as a child. Playing the music gave me positive feelings about the genre.

Three of the songs that got me into classical are these:

Johannes Brahms - Waltz
I played a simpler version of this very pretty song on my violin when I was a child. I still enjoy listening to this more complicated version:


Johannes Brahms- Waltz - YouTube

* * *

Antonio Vivaldi - Violin Concerto in A Minor
(Itzhak Perlman - violin)


Itzhak Perlman-Violin Concerto in A minor,RV 356 Op 3 No 6 - YouTube

* * *

Brahms - Sonata no. 2 for Clarinet and Piano (1st movt.)


Brahms - Clarinet Sonata No. 2, Op. 120 (1/3) - YouTube

I kind of liked Arvo Pärt, but I'm still not really into classical all that much. I just remember liking some of his work.

No words can describe the greatness of this masterpiece. It was one of my first favorite classical works, and up to this day I still think that this is the best piece of music that was ever written.

Your post reminds me that Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" was one of the first pieces that drew my attention to classical music in a positive way.

I remember hearing my dad playing this piece on the piano when I was a child. I didn't like the sound of much of the classical music he listened to or played (so listening to classical music as a child doesn't automatically mean one will like it), but the somber emotion of the first movement of "Moonlight Sonata" appealed to me. Its mood was very different than the popular and folk songs I heard as a child.

"Moonlight Sonata" seems to be a popular intro to classical piece! Hi and welcome.

I never really understood why the Moonlight Sonata was so popular. The first two movements are rather boring in my opinion. The third, though, is joyously angsty.

My mother is a qualified piano teacher, so I've been raised with classical, though I only got interested after watching Fantasia and Fantasia 2000, especially the firebird suite in the second one.

When I was little, we used to have a large collection of classical compilations, each comprising works from one artist, which would be put on every now and again. Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven, Grieg, Handel (and a collection of various other baroque works), etc. It wasn’t until I got older and gave personal attention to those composers as well as discovering the works of Saëns, Sibelius, Wagner, Vivaldi, Prokofiev, and Brahms, that I developed a love of classical music.

But I suppose that’s what got me into classical; the classics.
