Thread Name: Classical music - what makes you listen?
Subject: RE: Classical music - what makes you listen?
I find I'm mostly listening to late 1800's and 20th century music from Delius (...First Cookoo in Spring, Florida Suite) lots of Vaughn Williams (the ones Ron mentions above plus Lark Ascending, Pastoral Symphony etc.) Faure, Ravel, Debussy, Bartok abd Stravinsky.
Also some of the older stuff by Schubert (Rosamunde Overture) Beethoven, and Chopin (the Barcarolle is one of my favorites).
I mostly listen to this stuff nowadays to relax with and don't really get into anything too intense except for maybe Bartok or Mahler occasionally.vl
