Whoa - auto correct fail!

Classical, Butterworth is probably my favourite. I do have a soft spot for Schubert's Die Schone Mullerin (and it's the favourite of two people very dear to me so that's a bonus too. (I think Die Schone Mullerin was too much for my phone, but it got BM in there!)

Oh, and the Queen of the Night's aria from The Magic Flute, when it's sung as clear as a bell.

Oh, and Mozart's clarinet concerto was what I walked 'down the aisle' too (we were in a park) so I love it one because it's beautiful and two becuase it's out wedding music.

Are your kiddies playing music yet Andy?

Have you heard Martin Frost play it? It is amazing.

DS1 is 7 and has been playing piano for 6 months. He really wants to learn the bassoon but he is way too little. Perhaps when he is 10.

My favourite classical pieces are Barber's Adagio for strings and Winter by Vivaldi. I used to love playing Phantom of the Opera stuff (I technically can play the flute) and the Poulenc sonata I had to play for an exam too.

I like any music I can sing to. I like old Sia stuff (not so much the new stuff), RHCP, Nina Simone, Eric Clapton, lots of 60s stuff and blues. For background music I like St Germain or Zero 7. I'm also into some French bands from my uni days.

I've not got the strength to look at that tonight!

I do have a soft spot for tenors though. Well, one in particular....

I do like classical music - I sometimes play an album of Mozart classics in class quietly while students are working. My favourites though are not classical musicians e.g. Bee Gees, Foreigner, The Police, Michael Buble, Crowded House, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Cat Stevens.... just to name a few. Oh and I love the Piano Guys too.

I think if I'd been allowed to study music as a school subject, as a teen, I'd have more appreciation and knowledge of classical music, but sadly that was seen as an appropriate subject for study by my parents.

I took your challenge and could only listen for about 15 seconds. Dear oh dear :wink: (this is what I say around T now that she is sprouting words like there's no tomorrow) that was a bit much.

Twitter told me that the arts history courses had been cut from whatever their senior equivalent of QCE/OP subjects is. I'm deeply saddened and disgusted by this.

I loved my music class. There were only 9 of us. It made year 12 ok.

It makes me sad when arts are not valued.

Ooh! And I forgot - Regina Spektor and Amanda Palmer. Their music and approach to their work makes my heart sing. :-)

this song, ui yia yia has become one of my favourites, not least because of the killer horn lines 3/4 of the way in. the video clip is rather entertaining also. it is an excellent dance around the loungeroom song.
