Anyone like classical music?

My music taste are very eclectic , this is probably my most favorite bit of light classical

The Lark is beautiful. I haven't heard it in a long time. I listen to a lot of abstract music but there are some simpler (probably not a good word description for that) pieces which I have always enjoyed. Thanks for the entry.
My goodness. I was finishing listening to the Lark and saw the oboe players. I used to play oboe. It was only at that moment that I realized I was watching a youth orchestra. Must be very nice to be part of something like that.
Pachelbel's Canon was popular during his lifetime in the late 1600s, but lost popularity until it was rediscovered in the 1960s. The distinctive eight bar progression was taken on in many forms by rock and pop artists, while the original form of the piece became a mainstay at weddings.
There is also a 'thing' called 12 bar blues, which is used extensively by rock artists of today, and yesterday,

My tastes are also eclectic as well and I like Sibelius's work.
Gobsmackingly gorgeous HD, Brian, and those orchids and other flowers are uplifting.

Thanks for sharing, I will watch the rest of this over my weekend :)

Take a peek at the girl who looks asian sitting next to the lead violinist at 5:55......Very easy on the eyes......also very talented....(Musically of course)
usually i listen to ClassicFm each late evening they don't seem to play Maurice Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major that often but heard it a few times and growing on me.
Start with Vivaldi and end with Schubert, Chopin.
But Mahler, Wagner ... no thanks.
My favorites: Adagio (Albinoni), Beethoven's Appassionata, Bach's Tocatta & Fugue in D Minor, Schubert's Death & The Maiden, Mozart's Clarinet Quintet - and the Ultimate, Mozart's Requiem.
Very easy on the eyes
Brian I also find them easy on the eyes especially Chen Yue and Zhao Cong and Deng Li jun especially Yue is a flautist using mainly the bamboo flutes known as the Dizi and xiāo and Cong is a Pipa player which is also known as the Chinese lute. both these ladies are talented players of their respective instruments. Li Jun is also known as Teresa Teng. But I understand what you mean about the violinist in the orchestra.
Also I have the Scheherazade in my music collection.

Just something of interest about the work
This orchestral work combines two features typical of Russian music in general and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colourful orchestration and an interest in the East, which figured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as Orientalism in general. The name "Scheherazade" refers to the main character Scheherazade of the One Thousand and One Nights. It is one of Rimsky-Korsakov's most popular works.
