    When I'm working, I can't listen to music with words. *Actually, if the language in the song isn't English, it's ok. Latin, for example. There's something special about an old language*

    Techno is ok sometimes, but that gets me more amped and ready to get moving than thinking about the plans I'm trying to orchestrate. Classical music has been wonderful in helping productivity, and general mood.

    I heard Moonlight Sonata was about Beethoven's student and his affection for her, which could not come to fruition because of the impropriety in the relationship as he was in a position of trust and authority over her, so he had to battle with his desire and resign himself to loving her from a distance and platonically. You can absolutely hear the confusion and the battle of his inner dialogue throughout the piece. Or, perhaps this just a nice story :)

    Please share your favorite [Composer - Title] of classical scores you enjoy! I'll post what I find too.

    Eastern European and Middle Eastern traditional/celebratory/marching scores, as they're the inspiration of the Classical works, and later inspired awesome heavy-metal guitar riffs(you can totally hear it; Metallica - Wherever I May Roam is an obvious example), are more than welcome as well!

    I think ROPA will like this one

    I like it too, it touches my Slav soul deep inside, something "you westeners" won't understand (no hard feelings)

    Writing the username of that creature will only make him feel important and giving him the impression that he's really good at what he does.

    Being on topic, I like listening to piano from time to time, it gives me state of mind I'm looking for. Here is a random song from my playlist

    Awesome! I didn't know other people listened to much classical music. We should have a BHW Classical playlist on Spotify haha.

    I've been listening to a lot of various Chopin, Rachmaninoff, and Schubert lately. Great stuff :)

    Vivaldi - Der Frühling (watch?v=tBCl5_W-uiY)

    A very nice piece I listen to a lot. Name in english: The spring. If you like it search for 'Vivaldi - Die vier Jahreszeiten'. Or 'The four seasons'. That's the complete symphony. Should be on youtube!

    Antonio Dvorak - New World Symphony (
    watch?v=ETNoPqYAIPI)

    Pretty dramatic, but somehow combined with a feeling of hope and harmony. Dunno if it's for you, but definitly wort checking out!

    Carl Orff - Carmina Burana (watch?v=GRjyxr1ysKw)

    Do you know 'Oh Fortuna'? It's the full symphony. Rocks. I'm living together with 3 other students. One of them once asked me why I am listening to "Christmas musik" all day. Gosh. He don't know what he's missing.

    Would you mind sharing yours?
