Sometimes I like to listen clasical musis. For example it is thought that listening to Mozart helps to concentrate.

Classical music is a hard kind of music.It chooses best singers and even fans for itself.Pop seems to be the most easy to sing and singers may easy to get famous by pop .But actually,pop stars cannot maintain their postion in long term because audiences change their idol so quickly.In contrast,singers who sing classical songs always have a stable postion in the music world.They are,I mean,the best singers.They must have real ability of music, a wonderful voice, not a wondeful appearance.:_)

I think we have some best singers to sing classical music.
So far they are Groban and Church.

We also should make a definition about classical music. Do you think an evergreen song can be said as classical ones? Let me mention as "The Music Played" (Sorry I forgot the singer)

Do you know that classical music is a wonderful kind of music and it chooses its listeners or fans in other words.I am not very good at it,just have heard some such as Sonatas by Beethoven in which Opus 27-Moonlight is what I like most.I aslo admire Mozart-an Austrian musician.And I am very proud if I am a fan of this kind music.How pity,I could not apprehend it well.I love this saying of Warlock most.
". . . Music is neither old nor modern: it is either good or bad music, and the date at which it was written has no significance whatever. Dates and periods are of interest only to the student of musical history. . . . All old music was modern once, and much more of the music of yesterday already sounds more old-fashioned than works which were written three centuries ago. All good music, whatever its date, is ageless - as alive and significant today as it was when it was written ..." -Peter Warlock.

Evergreen is a nice song but I don't think it could be regarded as a classical song.

I like Enya too.. and vangelis... I think, it's hard to define what is classical and what isn't.
Sometimes, if I working with computer, I like listening some classical brodband radio stations..

Have you ever listen to "Pesian Market" or "Turkist March"- Mozard ? They are so wondeful symphonies!

Hi everyone.
I think that sometimes it's really nice to listen to the classical music, because when you need it helps you to relax, and it also helps you to concentrate on something you're doing. I'm often prepare for my exams listening Mozart or Bach.
