    I love Saint-Saens and Bach, I play cello and sax and I really look the Bach cello suites

    Saint-Saens is wonderful, especially The Swan, which is one of my favourite pieces. I've never been particularly keen of Bach, with Chopin being my favourite composer, followed by Tchaicovsky and Holst...

    It's not classical by any means, but I am deeply passionate about the music of Wagner, Debussy and Richard Strauss (amongst many others). I regard Strauss's 'Four Last Songs' as one of the most beautiful and profound collective pieces of music ever written. That being said though, I'd say I was a better listener of music than an actual musician, although I do play the piano and violin.

    Really weird but I never realised you played the violin too...I play the same

    That similarity goes some way at least to redeeming your being on the wrong side of opera

    I shall get you for this slander to my beloved Wagner. Mark my words! Wagner could take on an absolute pleb like Verdi any day!

    I love Vaughan Williams' Lark Ascending and I also love the all the Bach solo suites/partitas/sonatas/whataver else there is for the cello and the violin. I have minimal piano skills but my main instrument is violin and I LOVE it.
