Do You Listen to Classical Music?

I kind of consider it a dying art, but I was wondering if it was popular with anyone on here -

I used to listen to classical music every night while I slept.
But then I started getting intense, vivid nightmares from it... the crazy mood changes in the music, the crescendos, etc... it was too much for my imagination lol

Now, I admit that I rarely listen to it. But I do on occasion.

I listen to it when I want to relax. And its good for doing work. I can't listen to music with words when I'm doing work or I'll get confused.

Sometimes. Used to be in marching band so I developed a taste for it. Can't say I can have a non-stop diet of it, but yeah.

Every now and then but it's rare. In the car I usually listen to NPR and when I'm running I listen to Techno or something with a hard beat. If I listen to classical it's usually with my bf because he enjoys listening to it when he works from home.

I do when I am extremely stressed out and really need to relax.

I'm somewhere between "sometimes" and "rarely". I have a few dozen Classical songs in my iTunes, but that's out of around 6,000 songs.

I love classical music. It tells many stories, without needing words to convey them. It is a dying art, though. It is unfortunate people today have no connection with people of the past. It is also the only music that is based on mathematics(algorithms ).

Absolutely! I play it on my viola too! I used to go to the CSO or the ESO bi-yearly.

I rarely do but there's a few good classical songs out there I listen to once in a while.

I LOVE classical music. I agree that it is kind of a dying art. Its beautiful! My favorite is the Moonlight Sonata movement #3.

Yep! This exactly. Not just marching band but in our Symphonic band as well. I really love it, but I rarely listen to it. Most music motivates me one way or another, and classical doesn't relax me at all. I spend too much time listening to all the different parts, figuring out the instruments used in solo parts, etc. It's a very edifying, but involved process for me to listen to it.

I love Bach (Johann, not PDQ) and Mozart and occasionally Beethoven. I love the Brandenburg Concerto by Bach.

From time to time. I prefer to hear it mixed in with a rock tune over the longer original versions most of the time tho. Not necessarily a classical piece specifically, but the sound of the string instruments.

I go to one of the local symphony groups a few times a year with my husband and his parents, and I really enjoy those.

I used to listen to more in the past but now I read a lot more and just like silence.

Only at home, for some reason I can't deal with it in my car.

ha, i saw this thread while listening to beethoven's 6th. it just came up on my itunes. i have quite a bit of it but don't actively listen to it, it's more like easy background music. and always by myself.


or with my kitten i had in italy. he used to dance around to bach in my old apartment by the sea in sicily.

those were the days!
