Favorite Classical Music

notes Click to listen to Beethoven's Opus 57 "Appassionata" the third movement.

As I had written before, the very first CD I bought was RCA Victor's The Idiot’s Guide to Classical Music. This CD has 99 tracks of the best known classical melodies. None of them longer than 1 1/2 minutes. It is a fun CD. My sister and her children like to listen to this CD and guess the name of the melodies as they ride in the car. I took the little book that comes with the CD to the library to help me decide what CDs to check out. When I checked out a certain CD more than twice, I would buy it. I learned what kinds of composers and music I wanted to own this way.

I RECOMMEND YOU START WITH THESE.

These are not all of the best composers or all of the best music. This is just a start and I will add to it off and on. If you have a favorite not listed here or you agree with my choices, sign the guest book and tell me.
