Classical

Classical music is a broad term that usually refers to music produced in, or rooted in the traditions of Western liturgical and secular music, encompassing a broad period from roughly the 9th century to present times. The central norms of this tradition became codified between 1550 and 1900, which is known as the common practice period. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Igor Stravinsky

    Totally with WasNotWhyNot - there is a difference between "classical music" and "the classical period". Bach is the first, but not the second. People get rediculously uptight about terminology on last.fm, forgetting that the meaning of words comes from what people THINK they mean. If you find yourself significantly in the minority about what a word means, you are probably wrong. The definition you have may have come first, but it everyone else now uses the term in a different way, the meaning of the word has changed.

    okay I'm just going to get this fucking out of here. anyone who bitches about the classical tag, saying piecemeal stuff they learned in music history 101 or off of wikipedia, think about what you're actually accomplishing. yes bach's music is not part of the classical PERIOD but classical no longer refers to the classical period. classical is the umbrella for orchestral music and it's commonly understood and accepted. would you call bach baroque first? absolutely, just as morton feldman would be noted to be contemporary. but they're both classical, just like the kinks and my bloody valentine both play rock music.

    For those who know the meaning of 4:20, here is a Xmas ditty that will make them smile. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/santas-super-sleigh-ride-single/id720865853 Also, hear it ("Santa' s Super Sleigh Ride" by o-HI-oDan - the pseudonym for this highly acclaimed classical musician) on SoundCloud.com https://soundcloud.com/search?q=o-HI-oDan It was written for a good cause -- "Santa's CUASE" (the legalization of medical marijuana) -- by Daniel Abrams, a highly acclaimed 80 year old concert pianist & composer. And listen to his "Musical Portraits from Wagner's RING" (from his "Opera For Piano" series) from his recent CD, "A Wagner Celebration", on Amazon.com www.amazon.com/A-Wagner-Celebration/dp/B00AG4MEVS and discover more about him at Daniel-Abrams.com: Please spread the word -- and the music. And please be in touch. Thanks and Happy holiday listening!! Sonia Sudak .
