Actually I'm more of an Arch Enemy/Rammstein drinker though Miles Davis & Mozart find there way into the mix too. :lol:

Death metal (and affiliates) is one of the few music genre in which I haven't found a band I really like, though I have friends who listen to such bands. Well maybe it'll happen someday.

nope, you lost me there, I'm more likely listening to Faithless, Air, or Zuco 103 - or other chill, acid jazz style stuff

current favourites are Anthony and the Johnsones(sp?)

Wow, this is a really old thread, if Brahms and Debussey are said to be "modern".

Along the top shelf of my cd collection are discs with works by Bartok, Beethoven, Brouwer, Copland, Ginastera, Lou Harrison, Mussorgsky, Orff, Pärt, Prætorius, Sanz, Sor, D. Scarlatti (lots of Scarlatti!), and Sibelius, along with collections from Peter Blanchette, Piffaro, Atrium Musicæ of Madrid, and others. Hmm, no Bach...have to rectify that. I don't listen to classical music all that often, but go on binges when I do.

Hey, I'm listening to Brahms 3rd symphony right now at work. If only I were alowed to enjoy a drink while sitting at my desk.

I listened to Herbie Mann last night with my drink- jazz flute rocks! :wink:

Can't say I know a whole lot about classical but know that I like a lot of the stuff ????


Pachelbel's Canon in D is just pure heaven.

There are two things in the world I'd be very happy never to hear again. One is the Taco Bell Cannon, and the other is Amazing Grace on the bagpipes.

Well Edward Grieg of course. His music is beautyful, typically norwegian in its expression, he's from Bergen and he is sort of a connection betwen Scotland and Norway as the Grieg family came from Scotland. They actually changed their name from Greig to Grieg to make it sound more norwegian.

Apart from Grieg I think nothing betters a cask strength from a Kildalton distillery enjoyed while listening to Stravinsky's Le Sacre de Printemps. Wild and wonderful!
