    Emotionally, I think Mozart does okay (compared to Bach) but I agree with you when you say his music is for the aristocracy.Do you know the film Amadeus?
    No, I have not. I believe I've watched a film about Beethoven.... I think. It's been a while.

    Where are all the classical music fans? Beethoven, Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Satie, and Liszt are my favorites!!!

    Does anyone like to play any songs by these composers?
    Beethoven and Satie are very emotional to play and I am dying to be able to play a Liszt song someday but his piano music is insane!
    I love Tchaikovsky, more to dance to than play though!! Love all the composers who also wrote for the ballets: Delibes, Mendelssohn Tec
    Also can't beat a good bit of Handel particularly love arrival of the queen of Sheba
    What do you guys think of einaudi? I personally love his music, would I be correct in classing him as classical?

    I haven't played Beethoven for months. I think I've exhausted this topic for now, unless I happen to derail this thread again .
    I kind of feel bad for the people who come to read this thread about music and then find themselves in a discussion about American politics.

    Lost of complex chords but apart from the not too bad. I'd say intermediate level

    Einaudi is amazing! Yes, I believe he is a modern classical composer. And the arrival of the queen of sheba is amazing! I have a record of Handel being performed by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and it is heavenly!!!

    Nah, it was my fault, although I admit I enjoyed the discussion.
    I was tempted to ask an ordinary American about her views on 2016 due to all the hype about Hillary.

    I'll give you rep as compensation for my lengthy digression.
    Oh Hillary.... Hahaha. I HIGHLY doubt she will be the next president. Even though I'd love to see a female president, I don't want her. And thanks for the rep!

    oh. ok. Yeah I'm not going to get a music degree either. Mainly due to the fact that the only thing I'd want to do would be to teach music and i don't even really want to do that.
