What Classical Music are you listening to?
 
To quote the OP of the parallel thread in the Jazz section:

"We had one for just about everything else, might as well put one in this dead subforum."

Now I realise this genre is really unpopular so if there aren't too many posts that's fine by me: it'll, at worst, take the place of me making a journal (I'm generally too lazy to do much more than list what I'm listening to, and I feel like a journal requires more than that). Anyway, that's 'at worst': I'd definitely like it to flourish!

A typical day for me at present will include either one classical and one non-classical album, or two classical albums (that I own). Then at night before bed I generally wander through contemporary classical music channels on youtube until I get tired. I'll post the daily standouts here, starting with...

Raphael Cendo, a composer I hadn't heard of until last week but who has written some truly visceral and fascinating music: recommended for anyone who enjoys avant-garde music.



Today I also enjoyed a work by a composer I had shied away from because of his reputation for being impenetrable. This work, however, is very expressive and has me excited to explore more:



I will be posting a lot of the more traditional side of classical too, of course, but this is what was on the cards today!

I'm still delving into the wonders of Arnold Schoenberg.

I'm still new to his work, but I really like what I've heard so far. I don't really know any composer too well yet, but so far, Schoenberg is my favorite.

Didn't notice you'd said this until now. I personally didn't start buying classical music until just last year. It's a slowly growing interest of mine, but just the 10 or so CD's that I have so far contain a LOT to absorb. I don't swing by this thread so often because I don't listen to classical so often. But when I'm in the mood, it's great. I might be a bit more active in here in a year or two... right now, I'm carefully feeling my way forward - one step at a time.
