Do any of you listen to classical music?

I usually listen to it while studying or writing essays for background noise but I just really enjoy it in general! Particularly film soundtracks (I really like 1917’s at the minute, Thomas Newman is a genius)

I adore John Williams, Thomas newman, Hans zimmer, and pretty much any studio ghibli soundtrack

If you have any suggestions that I can add to my playlist please go ahead!

You might like Vaughan Williams' back catalogue.

Just played a piece, wow!!

Definitely adding to my playlist, thank you.

Should probably mention as well that interstellar Has one of my favourite soundtracks ever, it kind of reminds me of the cornchase song!

Oh if you like classical music you have to give hans zimmer a go!

He wrote and orchestrated the music for the lion king and literally everything he’s composed is genius. I’m hoping to get tickets to see him in Amsterdam in 2021, it’s on my bucket list!! Haha

You listed film music composers (which I love) but that's not strictly classical. Check out something with a big theme like Jupiter by Holst or The Lark Ascending and also Dives and Lazarus both by Vaughn Williams. Other film composers I like are Christopher Young, Rachel Portman, James newton Howard, Howard shore (lord of the rings), James horner (titanic), John Barry, Michael Nyman (the Piano).

Love a bit of Bach and Vivaldi. Baroque is the best!

I don’t listen solely to film music but it’s definitely a preference!

I’ll look into those thanks so much for the recommendation

There is loads of classical music on Youtube. If you don't know much about composers, just keep listening and find something you like. I used to like the Beethoven's 7th symphony 2nd movement a lot. Schubert's serenade is nice, or Schubert's 8th symphony. You might like some of the Russian composers like Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich...
I'm not familiar with film composers' music - it's not classical music, just orchestral music. Classical music is music deemed good enough to be remembered throughout the centuries

Ah I’ve done that quite a lot, but was looking to hear more about what other people like! I’m a big fan of Bach and Chopin.

Maybe someone has made a playlist of it on Youtube or Spotify?

He's great but I doubt it is "classical"..?

Thank you!
For a moment I thought everyone here thinks that a piece composed 50 years ago is "classical music".

My apologies for not recognising the difference - I just meant any music without words really haha. Classical or film, I love both
