What makes classical great?

Excellent question!

Classical music is older and wiser in many ways! For quite some time, the way music was done on paper and through a formal music education. When you hear classical music, It is history personified. through a composers life, they experienced different things that influenced their music, the result ends up in some spectacular and memorable sounds. Music in this fashion leaves much more room for expression and experimentation. Taking your on a journey without words, is a certainty in the classical world.

Where do I start?

Good question! Definitely start by listening to one of the greats. here are a few of classical music's giants for your listening pleasure...

Historical periods in music

Baroque: from 1600 to 1750; this music is rigidly structured and meticulously written

Classical: 1750 to 1820; the rules were starting to be broken and thus some very unique stuff was created in this time you have Mozart, Debussy, Schubert Chopin and many others

Romantic:1820 to 1940'S; My favorite period. Beautiful sounds in this era from the mind of Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Saint Saens and John Phillip Sousa.

20th Century: After WWII; Aaron Copland, Prokofiev and Shostakovitch Were the last Great artists of the 20th century, All with a unique style.
