Classical Music

posted on 3rd of june, 2012

During my recent trip to Saint-Petersburg, my friends invited me to a concert at the recently opened Marriinsky concert hall to listen to the orchestra's playing Stravinsky. Never being a big fan of classical music, this time I was really impressed. Wanted to ask for recommendations of your favorite classical music masterpieces. What should I listen to?

Some photos I took during the trip are here to give you a feeling of the cold jewel of Europe which is also the cultural capital of Russia.

What a chance of a lifetime. Congratulations! Speaking of Saint-Petersburg and Russian composers, my favorite one is Tchaikovsky for his violin concerto, ballets, and 1812 overture. I also enjoy listening Rachmaninoff (Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini) or Scriabin's piano sonatas. I world recommend Jascha Heifetz playing Tchaikovsky violin concerto. You might find an old recording but just listen to the music. Good luck!

I listen to Tchaikovsky now, Dvorak will be next in line!

Awesome orchestra shot. My fave is Dvorak's New World Symphony. There's nothing like listening to a masterpiece while editing photos

If you have passion, nothing is difficult. I started playing as a child for a little year, reiniziato now, after 18 years since I played. In truth, the music I can not read anymore, but there are many tutorials on youtube of classical music that makes you see the keys that you press! I finally bought an upright piano, I took a Yamaha rebuilt in 1977, have a great sound and a keyboard is very light!

Was it hard to learn? I would really like to learn to play

I love the piano, I recently learned Fur Elise and Moonlight by Beethoven and Mozart's Turkish March, at this time no other sound!
