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. But in a more correct usage, refers to the music composed between the baroque and romantic period. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Sarah Brightman

    Hard to find classier humor than Monty Python.

    nevermind that you're projecting your own exclusion. nobody is excluding you. there's no attitude associated with classical music unless you associate the attitude with it. orchestrated music is in nearly every goddamn movie you watch and the majority of games you play, I don't think they become exercises in snobbery because of the inclusion. stereotyping 'intellectuals' is one of the most annoying reactionary movements in my opinion. is it really worth making fun of someone who likes art on the plain virtue that they like it?

    I don't see how the attitudes of the people who listen to the music affect the quality of the music. music being good or bad has nothing to do with the people who listen to it being good or bad.

    That wasn't funny. (2) It was hilarious. As much as I love me some Chopin the majority of this shite is garbage. The attitude and pretentious elitism that this "art music" creates has to be the most unpragmatic practice. It's the "pinky out" version of hipsterdom.

    Classical has indeed become an umbrella term. What is truly illogical is the inclusion of assorted pop acts with this tag.
