    I don't know, it's just mind blowing. I can't describe why I like it.

    I'm afraid I have little knowledge of theory. This is one of Beethoven's last compositions, and as such, it is complex and can be difficult to take in. I just think it covers a range of emotion rarely covered in one piece of music. I hear a lot of despair and melancholy in it, but also a sense of wise reflection. Makes sense he wrote this in his later years in poor health. It;s such a contrast to his earlier, heroic period.

    Oh yeah? I think he's great, and Vivaldi as well... although I was mostly exposed to Bach as I was training in piano. My piano teacher tried to steer me away from Beethoven, since it was often played in recitals... but I also like his work (and need to look more of it up).

    I listen to classical music sporadically (with limits)... to try to regulate my music choices.

    *Emotionally, Haydn and Mozart do it best for me.

    tie between these two
    - this one makes me think in terms of science fiction like of androids which yearn to feel
    - this one is dramatic and humanistic like the pinnacle of an achievement.

    EDIT: actually this is quite beautiful too...not sure if these are classified as classical - I took music appreciate once and received 100 percent but It's been so long...too long. I was able to match a catalog of 50 songs to the respective period but if you don't use it you lose it.

    It's the closest musical equivalent to life for me; it's ever changing tempo...... beautiful chaos that still manages to be coherent somehow.

    I don't know the difference between classical, romantic, and all these other genres. These are just some pieces I like.

    This is one of my favorites.




    The composer conducts this one. The music starts at 41 seconds:




    There's only a snippet of "Canzona a due cori" by Gabrieli on Youtube, but the whole song is on Grooveshark and Spotify.

    I like the Albinoni piece. It's in a playlist I made as inspiration for a novel that's in the planning stage.
