Certainly, though I prefer Chopin, Grieg and Rachmaninoff myself. However, you'll probably get more conversation going on this if you post here Classical - Music Banter

Contrary to most, I think Symphony No. 7 is his masterpiece.

Like all symphonies, I do not enjoy any of his, but all of his piano sonatas are great.

Come on! You can't say you're not stirred by the 5th Symphony! It's so powerful it's almost metal!

Although I agree the likes of "Fur Elise" and "Moonlight sonata" are better, calmer and more emotional on a lower-key level.

Yes. Along with Bach, he's my favourite.

I am, but symphonies tend to be too technical for me to understand.

You don't have to understand music (although knowing about music theory and all that certainly adds another level of enjoyment), you listen, feel and have fun.

Yeah, I can't play but for me classical music is all about just lying back and letting it wash over you. I wouldn't criticise classical in the same way as I would, say, power metal or soul: it's above that. These are masters, after all, and criticism of them is almost redundant. So even if I review a classical album (and I have a few) I concentrate just on telling the reader what the music sounds like, rather than saying something like "Oh an oboe would have been good here" or "He should have played this in C Minor instead". What the **** do I know about how classical music was played? Like they used to say in the Kit-Kat ad, just enjoy it!

His Pastoral Symphony is one of my personal favorites. I love the depiction of a stroll through nature.
