I do.

I was just in TOWER this weekend looking over the selection and I 'm finding a draw towards MAHLER. I think it's because of a DTS DVD SAMPLER I have that had a Mahler piece performed in France and it was great.

I wish I knew more about classical.

I like Operas, Chamber Music, Show Themes, and much more.

Oh well...Baby steps

being a music major in college, you can count me as a yes. the good thing is that there is so much good music out there to fit any kind of mood you could ever be in.

I love classical music. The violin in particular, is a profoundly... beautiful instrument...









So, are you guys out there who don't like classical music expressing any interest in now?

While I don't listen to it as much as rock music, I do love the stuff.
Barber's "Adagio for Strings" is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard.

Aww, be nice and give their names if you're gonna post their pictures.

I already know and love Vanessa Mae (the first pic) and I'm pretty sure the last pic is Leila Josefowicz. But I don't know the middle ones offhand.

Edited to add: After a quick search I think the 3rd pic is Hilary Hahn who I hadn't heard of before today.

The 2nd pic is really bugging me because it looks familar but I can't place it. Edited further to add: Is it Anne-Sophie Mutter?

I love classical music, in fact my name "Scheherazade" is not taken from the Arabian Nights but from the classical piece by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov.

Lara St. John.

She has two CDs out that I know of, Gypsy being the better of the two. Bach Works for Solo Violin isn't bad, but you can sort of tell she's feeling her way through a lot of the pieces.
