As I write this, I am listening to an opera about a man whose nose begins an independent existence. There is nothing I can think of in any other form of culture that can match this for sheer bizarreness. Anyway, to get to the point: Are there other people on here who like classical music, and if so, what do you listen to? I have a thing for schubert, and last new year’s eve I listened to all of Beethoven’s symphonies in succession. I say, and will insist, that any man who affects not to like Shostakovich is a cretin.
Please feel free to share your musical obsessions.
