Classical Music Is Exciting

I can understand people who like different genres of music who may not like classical music or it might not be their favorite music to listen to. Everyone has a right to their opinion and their choice of music. What I don’t understand is those people who don’t like classical music or who may have never even listened to classical music but they feel the need to let it be known their distaste of the music, and some even go as far as putting down the people who do like or listen to classical music. That is not acceptable and to those people, this post is not talking to you.

This post is meant for people who honestly just don’t like to listen to classical music but are not putting down the people who do enjoy it. One of the main reasons I will hear why some do not like classical music is they think it is boring, difficult to listen to, and or just not exciting music. I have heard some say it is elevator music that puts them to sleep. Frankly, I’ve been in many elevators in my life and in none of them have I heard any music at all and certainly not classical music…so, maybe it is just me being in the wrong elevators, but I don’t know where that comes from. 🙂

I am asking those people listen to a couple of pieces I have chosen and I can prove to you that classical music is not boring nor does it put you to sleep. Much of it can be very exciting and dramatic music that I bet you could enjoy as much as you can enjoy a loud and exciting rock band.

Here are just a few of the hundreds of selections that I could have chosen to show you that classical music is indeed exciting music!

Please turn up the volume to enjoy some exciting classical music!

Beethoven: “Moonlight” Piano Sonata. Movement 3, Presto Agitato:

Modest Mussorgsky: Night on Bald Mountain [Shorter version]:

Brahms Symphony #2 in D Major, Movement 4, Allegro con Spirito:

Tchaikovsky Symphony # 4 in F minor, Movement 4 Allegro con Fuoco:

Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony #10 in E minor, Movement 2, Allegro:

Mendelssohn Piano Concerto in G minor, Movement 3, Presto:

Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D Major, Movement 3, Allegro Vivacissimo:

Rossini: William Tell Overture, Finale:

Classical music boring? I don’t think so…how about you? 🙂
