The Classical Period

I chose to listen to my 100 symphonies in a chronological order. For the past three weeks I have been in the Classical period, listening to LOTS of Haydn, Beethoven, and Mozart. Haydn will be my composer that I will listen to when I want to be jovial. Mozart's symphonies really didn't do too much for me. And now I appreciate Beethoven and all of his amazing symphonies, especially 5, 7 and 9.

Other composers I listened to:

  • Haydn's brother Michael Haydn
  •  Louis Spohr
  • Samuel Wesley  
  • Muzio Clementi
  • Karl Ditters von Dittersdorf  
This weekend begins the Romantic period with some Schubert. (I am also going to listen Shostakovich's Symphonies 5 and 9 for some variety.)
