I'm not really into the classicals, but I do enjoy some classical pieces from videogames' OST. I find very interesting how music that can not be considered "commercial" by any means, transforms into something mainstream when it is associated with a commercial product, such as a Final Fantasy videogame.

Lately, I have been listening to Nobuo Uematsu and Jessica Curry. Their pieces help me organize my stuff at work :) I also enjoy listening to opera.

Brahms, I like most of his symphonies but the Trio for clarinet and string is definitely my favourite!

For the eras, I have great admiration for music from the Medieval era to the end of the Romantic period. It is a large span of time, but the music is wonderful in all of them nonetheless. In specific terms, Medieval and Renaissance would be my favourite picks among them. There is an intense level of spiritual art in these that I find appealing. Despite not being a Christian, I do like the Christian music from these periods.

Composers? Pretty much all the standard ones as well as Saint-Saens and Schnittke
Era? All of them just about equally
Pieces? If I limit myself to three indispensable ones:
Beethoven: Grosse Fuge
Elgar: Cello Concerto
Schnittke: Viola Concerto

From a living composer's perspective: I appreciate great composers from most periods, but I have the least fondness for the classical period - Sonata form in particular bores me. Some of the composers in which I hold the highest esteem for are J.S. Bach, Schumann, Chopin, Brahms and Debussy. In particular, a composer who lacks a solid understanding of the contrapuntal techniques of J.S. Bach, is in my opinion, incompetent.
I have my favorite 20th and 21st century composers as well, but that is perhaps beyond the scope of the original question.

JS Bach, Mozart (relatively late works - I'm talking about starting from the 20th piano concerto), Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Faure, Ravel. Some Rachmaninoff, Schumann and Mendelssohn.
What era of music do you like best?
Classical = Romantic = Baroque = 20th Century.
There are good and bad pieces from all eras.
What are some of your favorite classical pieces?
At the moment, the pieces closest to my heart areA306;
Bach - All Violin Concertos and Brandenburg Concertos, English Suite No. 3, most of the Well-Tempered Clavier
Chopin Ballade No. 1, No. 4, Scherzo No. 2, Polonaise-fantaisie
Liszt Piano Sonata in B minor, Transcendental Etude No. 11 ('Harmonies du soir'), Piano Concerto No. 2, Symphonic Poem No. 6 ('Mazeppa')
Beethoven String Quartet No. 7 ('Razumovsky'), Piano Sonatas No. 13 ('Quasi Una Fantasia'), No. 17 ('La Chasse'), No. 21 ('Waldstein'), No. 23 ('Appassionata'), No. 30, Violin Sonata No. 9 ('Kreutzer'), Piano Concerto No. 5 ('Emperor'), Violin Concerto
Schubert String Quartet No. 13 ('Rosamunde'), No. 14 ('Death and the Maiden'), No. 15, Symphony No. 8 ('Unfinished'), No. 9 ('Grand')
Brahms Symphony No. 2, No. 4, Violin Concerto
Prokofiev Piano Sonata No. 7, Violin Concerto, Piano Concerto No. 1
Shostakovich Symphony No. 7, No. 9, String Quartet No. 3, No. 6-8
Faure Barcarolle No 3, Nocturne No 5, 6

I admit that some of the entries on this list (particularly the Mazeppa) I only enjoy the excitement of, rather than the actual music.

In classical music, generally I like J.S. Bach. Interestingly though, my favorite classical piece is Mozart's 25th symphony.

Not really classical, but more of a modern style of it. I especially like Hanz Zimmer's Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 music.

Mozart; Tchaikovsky; Bach; Dvorak; Saint-Saenz; Tellemon; Vivaldi.

I love the 2nd movement of Dvorak's "Symphony From the New World" so much I want it played at my funeral.

I also dig: Mozart's Clarinet Quintet; Vivaldi's Four Seasons; Anything by JS Bach; and of course, my all-time favorite strings piece: Pachelbel's Canon in D.

Or maybe I am mistaken.

I was thinking of this one--which is very famous.

Dude...no offense, but that sucked!

So...you obviously did it on a synth, right? A MIDI hooked your PC?

I can tell you do not know how to read music, as the chord structure was all over the place. No linear melodic line. No gradual chordal or tonal transitions.

You were also off-key as often as you were in key.

A lot of minor chords. Or what we call "diminished fifths." I am sure you did not know you were doing this, as you were obviously just "noodling" on your keyboard.

Reminded me in parts of some of the 12-tone serialism that Shoenberg was so fond of. That is, a lot of "a-tonality" and a dearth of pleasant melodic lines.

Listen to some Bach or Liszt or Mozart, especially their chamber music stuff. And try to incorporate some of that structure into your work.

Saint-Saens is good for that too!

Good luck

Yes, I did. I might have been a bit hard on it. I mean, I'm only a rock drummer: so it is probably better than I can do. Maybe. LOL.

But I listen to an awful lot of classical music; just about every night. And my ex-wife was a classically-trained violinist. So I am sort of a tough audience for composers. I am used to listening to the legends.

But at least you are trying. Keep practicing and you'll get better.

BTW: DO you read music?
