    Default Classical music

    Which types like to listen to it? Which types are prone to play in a band?
    Is classic music essentially + ? What are your favourite themes? What is your favourite composer?

    Not type related. If you're a music major you pretty much listen/enjoy to "classical" music by default, and there are many different types who are said music majors.

    I wouldn't call myself I classical music lover.
    Most of the classic music I have heard is to upbeat and happy for my taste.
    I like to be emotionally moved by the music I listen to.


    I like the more the more dark haunting pieces.




    Sends shivers up my spine.

    For clarification, are those mentioned at point point music majors? I find that the majority of people who listen to "classical" music actually appreciate it, and in order to appreciate it, you have to learn about it. I'm not saying it dominates their ipod, but they can listen to it and enjoy it, because they notice the skill and techniques being used in it.

    Appreciating skill ?.

    Skill is acknowledged then we may get board after.

    Skill doesn't mean that the music will be any good though.

    Steve Vai
    John Petrucci
    Joe Satriani
    Yngwie Malmsteen

    These I very skilled guitarists consider to be among the best in the world.

    Guess what I hate their music.

    I feel like you're missing my point, which honestly should have been less generalized. I don't think it's universal that you must acknowledge skill in order to appreciate music, or just because you recognize skill that you will like it, but I find when it comes to people who actually enjoy "classical" music, it is because they are educated in it and therefore connect to it easier. I don't mean this to apply to everything else in life nor other types of music. I just don't think enjoying "classical" music is type related and that was my reasoning for it.

    I don't need to be educated to appreciate something and I am baffled to why others would I either like something or I don't no amount of education will make me like it.

    I would however like to be educated on why I like or dislike something that would be cool.

    Again, you're taking this in a completely different direction than I mean it. But I've pretty much added what I needed to, and I agree with Isha with her post.

    I agree. Although, there do seem to be a lot of Alpha SFs in the Voice department at my university's school of music. Also, the Piano majors seem to be mostly NTs at this school. The string musicians seem to be the most varied lot.
    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    Yeah, like how Isha described as well, I think types within the music sphere will have different preferences, but there isn't really a type to enjoy the music.

    I'm a musician and I played in an orchestra for seven years. I listened to classical music before I played a lot of it, but I think that look.to.the.sky makes a good point when she said that you'll appreciate it more if you know more about it. (Although I don't think that applies as a general rule.)
    Anyway, I don't think it's type related at all. If you haven't really been "exposed" to classical music I think it would be kind of hard to get into it.

    Yeah, it's more about better understanding of what's been "said" in the music, because of theoretical understading of the concepts and what they represent in the music.
    ...the human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, feelings? Pure 'Victorian fictions'.

    I go through phases of different genres of music, and I've been through a couple classical music phases. I think I feel more satisfied listening to contemporary classical music. Not sure why, can't really explain it.

    Also, ProcrastinateTomorrow, here's something in your wheelhouse I suspect



    I've been listening to this one a lot lately.

    I tend to go for pieces in the Romantic period, though I'm really not into the very slow and potentially depressing pieces (at least to me they are). On the other hand, I don't like symphonies, save for maybe a few, because they are often way too long and boring for me.

    Chopin is my favorite composer by far. This is one I like from him:



    But really, I could post a hundred videos of the all the pieces I like in general from many composers. Here are a few others:

    Here are two of my favorite pieces by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Maurice Ravel, respectively. I got to play each of them while in orchestra, and I was especially honored to be asked to play the Vaughan Williams piece since it has a dominant harp part. (:

    I'd have to say Ne leading + "computer geek" subtype if it's at all type related.

    My favorite composer is Beethoven... but I doubt that this is type-related.
