Do you listen to classical music? Who are your favorite composers?
Do I listen to…. what kind of question is this?! Yes. Without a doubt. Wholeheartedly and with every fibre of my being. Anyone who purports to love music and who doesn't listen to classical music is robbing themselves of the best experience music offers.
You know what really twists my crank though? That so many people only think of classical music as 'relaxing'. That they choose to throw it into the background. It's not background music. It's so far from relaxing. It's engaging. It's the most complex music you will find. It demands active listening. It demands that you pay attention and see what all the instruments are doing. There are dozens of voices going on at any one time – and they all just fit.
I know it's a daunting task to start exploring it – there's much to learn – but if you love music, you owe it to yourself to try.
