    Classical music


    0 Not allowed!
    Anyone here listen to it?

    Just recently I've been putting it on in the car and really enjoying it but it's fair to say I don't know my Brahms from my Liszt.

    On that note, last night country file played a bit during the programme and I'd love to find out what it was, how do I go about doing that?
    I will not make any deals with you. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own,

      Was it this?

      The lady has foolishly attempted to join the conversation with a wild and dangerous opinion of her own. What half-baked drivel! See how the men look at her with utter contempt.

      Have always been a Classic FM listener, especially driving home, after a hard day in office

      There's some cracking classical music. I love the stuff with a bit guts, rather than just a piano note, a long pause and another piano note or two. If you watch the film "A Clockwork Orange", you'll have quite a good introduction to some good stuff.

      I love classical music and have about 16 hours on my I pod that I play during the day while writing letters etc.

      Not much of an expert, but I heard Nigel Kennedy performing the violin solo on this at the Proms a couple of years ago, and it was absolutely spellbinding. One of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.

      Have a listen to it (played by another violinist obviously, but it's still amazing). Give it time and listen to it all.

      At the beginning of Trainspotting as well.

      Holst - The Planets is one of my all time favourites.

      I like Jupiter - 'I vow to thee my country' In my opinion it should be our National Anthem

      all good but from 2:55 is uplifting!
