    i think that classical music is vastly underrated nowadays. For me, classical can be the most powerful, poignant, expressive genre of music. From pieces like un sospiro to tocatta and fugue to requiem to o fortuna from the carmina burana.

    most people know beethoven symphony #5, moonlight sonata, rondo alla turca and maybe the nutcracker and dance of the sugar plum fairies. they may know a couple more but some of the moving pieces go unknown against the whole of people these days. i find people who listen to classical far and few between.

    opinions?
    classical under rated or use is fine

    I'd say it seems to be used enough. Maybe a tad more would be nice, considering pretty much the only music used now is rave or rap music. But, of course, I blame Harry for that. :)

    when in doubt. blame moe. there definitely needs to be more classical on the radio. the only time people hear it now is flipping between their radio stations, which with all the new satellite radios like xm/sirius etc. each channel is programmed to one genre. which means people arent likely to manually choose it. they might hear something in the background of a movie if they are paying attention but its largely un noticed till some crap rapper samples a 5 second version of it in the next trash released.

    i follow more liszt than chopin. maybe i need to listen to more chopin but it has more raw power to it i think.

    My personal favorites are the 1812 Overture and Canon. Although Classical isn't my favorite to listen to by far, its still nice once in a while.

    When crap goes wrong in any NOTD game, this is what I hear in my head when I'm trying to save everyone while at the same time trying to keep myself alive.

    I don't want to get the songs. I am lazy. I personally call anything that is wind ensemble, symphony orchestra, or the likes classical, because again, I am lazy.
    Here are the songs I listen to often:
    Symphony No. 3, Slavanskaya by Boris Kozhevnikov (how fitting?)
    Niagara Falls by Michael Daugherty
    Africa; Ceremony, Song and Ritual
    Celebration Overature
    Handel in the Strand
    Asphalt Cocktail by John Mackey
    Zion
    Awayday
    I could find more, but that would take away all the fun. This is less fun than crashing the classic music thread though....

    Yes it does because that is to the tune of "Carmina Burana," a German piece that was composed around old Germanic poems, and when the whole thing is performed, it is about an hour long

    i prefer o fortuna from the carmina burana but there are many pieces.

    quantum have you heard nuvole bianche by ludavico einaudi. for me it is a powerful piece piano work that signals challenges attempted, failed and retried ultimately succeeding but keeping a humble outlook at the end.

    how do you feel about
    turandot's nessun dorma
    vide cor meum
    beethoven's 3rd symphony
    mozart's moonlight sonata.
    carnival of animals by camille saint saens
    addaggio for strings?

    Some of those are familiar to me, I will probably end up listening to them. I will probably report back when I hear them.
