Wigglypuff Seeks Classical Music Appreciation Lessons.

There are tons of great composers from the different historical eras and each one has hundreds of pieces. I need some well free online course or serious of articles to put some order to all and to introduce to great works.

right now i am liking

Bach - piano Concerto No 1. in D minor, Allegro non troppo ed energico

Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, 'Choral': IV.
Moonlight Sonata No.14 in C-sharp minor - Presto
Sonata No. 14 in C sharp minor, Op. 27 _ 2 Moonlight Sonata

Mozart - String Quartet in C, Op. 59 No. 3 - 3rd movement
String Quartet in C, Op. 59 No. 3 - 4th movement
String Quartet in F, Op. 59 No. 1 - 4th movement

dont ask me what any of this means i just copied the track names.

p.s. i thought the Wigglyshit part might amuse my haters.

But the new single is AWESOME!

Re: Wigglypuff (aka Wigglyshit aka ABL) Seeks Classical Music Appreciation Lessons.

Classical music is very broad. There are categories within it including baroque, classical and romanticism as the major ones.

Bach is an example of baroque. Mozart and Beethoven are examples of classical - the Viennese style. And as for romanticism look for composers like Tchaikovsky.

Baroque simply sounds like church music. This period coincides with the late European renaissance - age of discovery. Expect to hear many lute and violins sounds. Pachelbel's Canon is from this era.

Classical music has come to dominate the classical music scene in that people think of composers like Mozart and Beethoven when thinking of it. This evolved from baroque music and starts to involve pianos and a range of other instruments. This coincided with the Age of Enlightenment in European history.

Following this is the romantic era. Expect to hear more bigger orchestras and much more modern sounds. This is the time of nationalism in a way a reaction to the German classicism of the earlier period. This is when every European country started to rise and say "me too!" and produced their own Romantic era classical music. One of my favourites from this era is Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.

And of course, this is just a brief overview. There are many, many subcategories within each of these as well as other categories like modern classical music and music of the Middle Ages.

I suggest you sample different composers from different eras and see what you like the most. But yes Mozart and Beethoven are both good introductions to the genre.

Divas: Seles, Sharapova, Muguruza
Pas de Quatre:
Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia

My username.

Beethoven actually isn't one of my favorites, but Antonin Dvorak is--his No. 9 Symphony (From the New World) is his most famous, and probably best, but his other symphonies are divine too.

The mini-era of the Impressionists is probably the one I visit the most though, with Claude Debussy and Erik Satie. I dig Ravel too, but the first two I mentioned are my clear favorites. Basically, any French composer in the 19th century is worth your time.

If you maybe want something a bit more modern too, Gorecki is popular. Symphony No. 3 is very famous, and rightfully so--one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever heard. The Gustav's--Holst and Mahler--are also worth investing time into. Particularly Holst, his Planets symphony everyone loves.

You probably aren't looking for suggestions, but yeah, that's just my favorite classical music. if you listen to any of it, .
