What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

15,306 posts in this topic

The last classical music I "heard" was yesterday when I was "forced" to play a piece.
We had a visit, and my wife said why don´t you play a little for us all, and I played a few stuff that they might like, "Con Alma" "When I fall in Love", and then my wife says "but can you play a classic piece, any....? 
I said you are kiddin we married for 25 years and I never played anything other than so called "jazz". 
But they insisted and so I was in a big dillemma.
Then some "Chopin Valse" that I once heard somewhere came to my mind and I played it from ear and thought it´s terrible, because I don´t really know to form classic chords, not speaking about classic touch. 
The chords sure was not the original Chopin Chords everywhere, it might have sounded a bit "Monkish", but SURPRISE, they said "GEE THAT WAS GREAT". My luck it was not a classic listening audience anyway, the non-jazz lovers go more for "shlager" and stuff.....
