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!
