    I don't see how people can dismiss it is boring. Some of it is incredibly exciting and powerful- the last movement of Beethoven's 5th, for example - some are very fast-paced, and other pieces, although slower, are so beautiful that I personally could never just have it on as 'background' music, I always have to listen to it properly.

    People have an image of it as dull and boring, when in fact there is an incredible variety of styles - exciting, fast, playful, romantic, mournful, soul-stirring, rousing, modern, atmospheric (eg. Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens, 'Hoedown' in the Rodeo Series by Copland), tender, tear-jerkingly sad, beautiful, or combinations of these...
