Who's your favorite and why? - would be the question smile.gif I grew up listening to Mozart and Vivaldi, Beethoven and Bach, as my folks reallllyyyy wanted me to be aware of their creations from an early age (about 7-8 years of age) i didn't understand too much back then, but I didn't dislike it smile.gif later on, when I was 24, I joined the Mozart Rocks! project and I found myself facing a totally different world!

What's your story regarding contact with classical music and composers?

I made contact with Classical Composers thanks to different things in different moments of my life...

1. Thanks to Walt Disney cartoons and also thanks to Tom & Jerry.
2. At first, thanks to Metal... and specifically thanks to becoming a Malmsteen's fan,, and then thanks to bands like Rhapsody and so... I started to investigate and listened to Paganini, Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and all those awesome composers.
3. Thanks to my Sound and Recording career where I studied the history of music and analysed the structure and texture of many music styles.
4. I learnt many classical pieces at the Music Conservatory.
5. I become a Film Music fan and I started to study orchestration and counter point with an important teacher who made me analyze music by Bach and Schumman for example...

My favourite... I can't choose one... smile.gif

Sometimes I wish I could have studied music in an awesome institution so I could have a more structured knowledge, but since in here there's no super music school, I'm glad I got this far on my own smile.gif

Gabe, did you go at a national college or a private one? I am actually interested to know if your national school system is also oriented towards modern musical studies and has applied courses not only theoretical ones.

I did the career in a National University... the career is called "Audiovision Degree" and it has two specialities... Sound & Recording and Image & Sound Post. Production.

This is the page.. maybe you can use a translator because it's everything in Spanish...

http://www.unla.edu.ar/departamentos/dhya/...as/audiovision/

It has been a very complete degree, I really enjoyed studying that.

Our national school system isn't oriented towards modern musical studies.. the closer thing is the "art" orientation. There are private school that has the orientation that you asked, but they are very expensive.

I like Vivaldi, Händel and Bach (not necessarily in that order) and a bunch of other composers from the same era.
Certainly some of Mozart's work, bits and pieces from Haydn, Beethoven. Schubert, I especially like his song cycles.
Not so much into more modern classical music. Yet.

Can't pick a single favorite.

I can't pick a favourite because I don't know enough from each composer but ones that have made the most impression on me would probably be:

Beethoven: Mondschein (Moonlight Sonata)

Schubert: Ellens Dritter Gesang (latter referred to as Ave Maria - not to be confused with Bach's Ave Maria.. basically it's the theme tune to the Hitman games)

Vivaldi: Four Seasons
