Classical Music

Classical Music General Knowledge: She wanted Brahms, he preferred Liszt – She gave him a good Haydn.

Classical Music general knowledge in lists makes it easy to learn about classical music. Music polarizes, classical music in particular. Someone who loves opera doesn’t necessarily like operettas or musicals. The differences are large but for many “lay listeners” barely audible or comprehensible.

Why is that? Do we just not understand or are our ears simply not tuned for classical music? One thing we are sure of – classical music is anything but quiet and boring. Why not try it! Listen to the 4th set of Beethoven’s 9th symphony, turn the volume all the way up and see for yourself what happens when the choir belts out “so you, brothers, should run your course, joyfully, like a conquering hero…” it’s an unparalleled EARgasm, Classical music rocks!

There’s a wealth of magnificent symphonies, concertos, sonatas and operas to discover. Written and composed by some of the greatest minds of the last centuries. Many classical composers started young – some were composing their first concerts aged 8 or 9 years old. Other composers like Verdi and Wagner continued composing into their old age. Then there’s Beethoven who went deaf and still managed to continue composing. Imagine an artist who goes blind yet still paints sensational works of art?
