Default When do you like to listen to classical?

I've recently reignited an old childhood obsession with classical music. Vivaldi and Handel are my current go-to's, but of course, that'll probably change by next month. I find myself wanting to listen to classical nonstop while I work, whether its manual work or desk work... No other genre will do. I'm coming to free-associate work with classical music, in fact, and I was just wondering...

When do you guys listen to classical? Does the mood come and go or is it during specific activities/tasks/times of the day??

Classical is great at any time except those (rare) occasions I feel like dancing wildly.

Any time I want to focus, think, reflect, or be inspired. Sometimes my mind seems to be going along with the inflection of the music.

I totally agree. If I'm feeling lazy, I'll pop some in and find that my work naturally synchronizes itself with the ebb and flow of the tempo, not only making work more enjoyable but also keeping me highly productive for longer periods of time, with less burn out for some reason. Because of this, I think I'm starting to free associate classical music with success.

My husband is not a music junkie like I am, and usually doesn't let me play music at all when he's around (especially anything electronic), so it's nice to finally be able to listen to music when we're in the same vicinity.

I will say my quality of life improved quite a bit after I picked up listening to classical again (I was in a music rut for almost a decade straight)

I don't really have a time when I want to play classical. If I'm in the mood then I put it on. I don't use it to focus or drift away and such.

But when I play classical I do always think to myself oh classical is the best music. But then I think folk is the best music when I play folk. And that blues is the best when I play blues. And trance is the best when... yeah. Whatever I play always seems the best.

There is no fixed time. When I want to listen to music, classical music is always the first choice

I put on classical music when I have a dinner party so that all my friends will think I'm cultured and intelligent.

All the time. I've recently gotten into a bit of an obsession with it. As a matter of fact, I'm listening to the third movement of Mozart's seventeenth piano concerto right now.
