Thread Name: Classical music - what makes you listen?
Subject: RE: Classical music - what makes you listen?
'Un Bel Di' (sp?) from Madam Butterfly has to be the most beautiful tune ever written. But to answer the question that was asked, I listen because of the beauty of the sound and the intellectual satisfaction of the structure. Lists are rather a waste of time. Most will more or less agree with each other. Differences are idiosyncratic and relatively minor.
