Heard some nice classical music at the music store, like it a lot.
But didn't asked for the title!!
Would like to start listening to some classical music... What is your favorite and which album is a good buy for starter? Thanks.

I have a thing for Beethoven: my fav is still his Symphony No 6 (Pastoral) -- I always stop and savour whenever I catch a whiff of it playing from anywhere. (I also like #9, #5, #7, #3 )
Some other favs:
- Violin Concerto -- Beethoven, Brahms, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky
- Piano Concerto: Tchaikovsky's #1, Rachmaninoff #3
On getting started:
- Symphony 92.4; and use the "What's Playing" link to figure out the names of the piece being played.
- Walt Disney's Fantasia, the original one, has a great way in interpreting some great music.
On a slightly different tack:
- Bohemian Rhapsody is good as well
you can also listen to 92.4 FM, the classical music radio station.
Many years ago there was a series of albums called "Hooked on Classics"...which are medlies of famous and popular classic melodies set to a disco (!) beat. I listened to them before I listened to more serious classical music. Still have the CDs and now let my son listen to them. It is easy for him to understand and when he hears the real piece he would be interested.
As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.
yep...remember listening to hooked on classics, as well as switched on bach (played on a moog synthesiser by wendy/william carlos). fab!
