Because it expresses the many complexities of the human condition with more subtlety than any other form of music, and being purely instrumental means it is more personable and universal. In mans eyes classical music can mean the langauge of life, of nature, of the heavens, the universe, or whatever you want it to mean.

There's a zillion reasons why classical music is popular.

Default Why I love music

On friday the 14th of june 2013, I met Julia Fischer at the Pleyer Concert Hall in Paris :-) . She's an awsome violonist, talented and nice. She also plays the piano. She's german and I had so much fun listening at her concert. I have now an autograph from her and it's such an honor. I was impressed by her great performance and the happiness that she felt playing :-D . I decided to work more and more my music instrument which is the flute. I hope that one day we could share a musical experience together. That the reason why, I think that music is a universal language that everybody who wants can understand.

If you ever get the chance to see a symphony show, go because it's a great experience. It's amazing how powerful orchestral music is played live.

I think a huge part of its longevity would be the fact that the performer usually willingly takes a back seat to the composer. Whether it's Bernstein in Vienna or Karajan in Berlin, it's still Beethoven. The music is timeless, influential, and beautiful. It doesn't matter how much current popular music saturates the scene: the greats will always remain. If 300 years from now, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, and Toby Keith are held in the same regards as Beethoven, Schubert, and Bach, then I'm happy now that I won't be a part of that world.

Classical music in essence is the best part of the music world,it dates back to very old times where the music used to be played in the age old kingdoms in Asia & Middle east. It gives complete relaxation to the body, mind and soul. The melodies moves up and down just like a sine wave. Sometimes high and other time low the music brings out the best from the performer. There are lot of places where you can learn but you have to carefully choose the best place to learn and understand the music which is not so easy as it sounds.

I'd say classical music is very unpopular. Unfortunately people don't usually delve that far into it, only touching the pop hits of Mozart and Beethoven.

Some off the top of my head to check out:

Shostakovich - 10th symphony 2nd move., 5th symphony
Sibelius - 5th and 7th, Swan of Tuonela
Stravinsky - Rite of Spring, Firebird
Debussy - La Mer, everything for piano
