Been meaning to start this thread for awhile - my apologies if something like this already exists, but I couldn’t find it
I am an absolute novice when it comes to classical music - but I’m finding i’m more and more drawn to it, especially for work and reading and just relaxing
I know OF a number of composers but not really a lot about their work - the big folks like Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi etc I am enjoying
Bach’s cello stuff has been a personal favourite; I am listening to Schubert’s ‘Trout Quintet’ right at this very minute and enjoying it immensely
I am looking for recommendations - I especially like, for want of a better description, ‘gentle’ ‘floating’ stuff not too jarring. I’ve been focussing on the old dudes, but would like to get acquainted with more modern stuff.
Is it still a big ole sausage party now?? Where the ladies at??
Anyway, complete classical noob - hoping there is help here!
