@gunnysgt: No, sadly. I just enjoy the events down at the Oceanfront--and Town Center, but there's something about the oceanfrot performances--better atmosphere, I think.

Yes- but I also call Rock n Roll Classic!

Hey, breaking news today!!!
My music is back in the hands of my family and will be reissued through Universal. That's right, 60, yes 60, of my recordings will be re-presented, and remastered. Enjoy.

@ BchStusa, are you part of the gang that puts on events @ the O'front?

We play classical music all the time in the barn. Keeps the animals chilled out.

@Fiat, in cases dear to Zappa's heart, I represent him. His views and use of satire influence me; though his instrumental works are still ahead of their time. His compositions will one day qualify as classical, his guitar solos are fresh & brilliant (my guitar wants to kill your mama, transfusions)

I listen to everything but since I listened to classical when I was a baby, I tend to like that more.

People find it hilarious that I love rap and classical music...and Rock, country, bluegrass, alternative, you name it.


06/10/12 10:39 am

I am forced to since I am a live in "housekeeper" for my dad..he listens to classical and FOX talk radio..talk about torture..sometimes I can get him to listen to '40s music which I love besides rock. Me, I like anything except country, opera, and most rap. I do like some classical. Gershwin. If

@DrReid: YES! So exciting to play.

@Argeas: Good point. I'm not the biggest fan of playing or listening to classical era classical music (cello), but Haydn isn't too bad.

I face-palmed when i saw the results.

Mozart's "Laudate Dominum" and "Ave Verum Corpus"' Vivaldi's "Gloria", Beethoven's ""Pathetique", Verdi's "Requiem" and the most sublime music ever written : Mozart's "Requiem"

@FrankZappa you know you died in 1992, right? So are you just a fan of his, or does he inspire your music? Just curious.

The classical era? Or "classical" music? Because that would make a difference. I wouldn't say I listen to classical era music on a regular basis (as much as I love Mozart and Haydn), but music that is before 1870, yes.

I enjoy it when I am in the mood. I am a little odd as I enjoy everything from classical to metal to country to Christian to folk to bluegrass.

Classical is the only music I like along with opera

I love Tchaikovsky and he was born the same month and day as me!

I love classical and opera, I grew up listening to both on a regular basis among other things, my dad instilled in me a love for all music so now my iPod goes from Mumford and Sons to Vivaldi to LMFAO to Flogging Molly and back to Mozart :)


06/09/12 12:08 pm

I play it and love it. It's amazing how much we have strayed away from musical complexity and had begun to simplify it.

Not classical-classical but Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings
and the church choir version, Agnus Dei. I love the climax.

I'm forced to play it but I don't listen to it.

I'd take classical over country or rap any day!!

Classic country! But other than that, no

Classical music is brain food.

@BadBadger, I think my Black Page #2 is closer to classical than any contemporary composer. As much as I was influenced by Varese or Cage, I'm at least melodic.

JDoe Its a gift

I have quite a bit of classical on my my iPod running playlist. It's mixed in with some Lady Gaga, Coldplay, and other eclectic choices.

I like it as well but when I listen to music it tends to be soft or pop rock or country.

I like it but do not listen regularly.

Vanna, it seems to me that spending all that time on SOH is the PERFECT time to be listening to music. And if, for some reason, you find the music too distracting while you read or type, try Ambient.

Frank, for the time being, be happy that your music is at least considered CLASSIC!

I do because of ballet class. I love the music, but I don't really listen to it all thatttt much outside of dance.

If you haven't really listened to Ravel's Bolero you are missing an outstanding piece!

More regularly then lyrical music, the music sucks nowadays

No, but I wish I did. It's beautiful music.

Do The Residents count? They could be chamber.
