Do you know the narrative behind Chopin's 1st Piano Concerto? Movement 1 is when he was leaving Warsaw, his homeland. You can SEE the images. I don't understand how Classical music is relaxing.

Actually... in a way. You're right. Those cello suites, heck - even some of the Goldberg Variations have a sombre mood to them. But this is not too prevalent in his works.

I'm sure you've listened to the Brandenberg Concertos? Give the 3rd on a go. 3 movements.

Also...

Yes.

Listen to... Camille Saint-Saen's Cello Concerto 1. It's angry, and hurt and tumultuous. I think you'll like it.

Yes, some Chopin's pieces were dedicated to his feeling about leaving Poland like that Concerto and that one Etude. It's painful for me to listen because I can relate to his situation... having to leave my homeland for similar reasons...

Besides those pieces, I love listening to his Nocturnes and Impromptus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PGpn6Iw50g


I've heard Brandenberg Concertos before, but I haven't heard that Saint-Saen's cello concerto before.

Regarding that concerto, wow I've never thought he had that side to him (the composer), I've always thought he was a calm and collective composer.
But then again, I've only listened to one composition from Saint-saens; Carnival of The Animals; The Swan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWtu5os9lFc

I can understand having to leave your homeland. Though, I do not share the same sentiments - as I did not have to leave for any negative reasons. Still, I know what a void inside feels like.

I'm glad you enjoyed the Cello Concerto. I actually didn't know he had composed anything like that either. I ran across it just recently. It was an eye-opener.

This will be a very generic question, but how do you feel about Beethoven's 9th? Movement 4, Choral.

I cry about a lot of things, I am an empathetic person. I do not try and hide that I cry, better to get it out, it is a genuine expression...usually stemming from feeling a connectedness with someone, something, or a situation.

This will probably be a complete shock to you... but I personally cannot connect with Beethoven's compositions... therefore when I listen to his pieces, I don't feel anything. I can enjoy it, but it doesn't move me like other composers.

I cry sometimes when I miss my family, they live to far away to visit every week so I have to wait two months or more for me to see them.

Only time I cry is when during a very emotional moment in an anime. I don't care about life outside of anime at all, so nothing ever gets to me and makes me cry. I'd also never ever let anybody see me cry.

Naw, actually - I'm not shocked at all. People have a hard time understanding why I don't like Mozart's works. They are too similar. It gets stale and starts to blend into each other after a while. There are very few of Mozart's pieces I like.

But, I'm not shocked. Lol.

I cry often. I'm not afraid to do so.

When people yell at me, in an angry manner. It makes me feel uneasy. And I'm highly sensitive to sad stories. And happy ones. I cry both tears of joy, and tears of pain.

*I do find crying in public slightly embarrassing. I'm not one for attention, I don't like it when people ask "what's wrong?" I'll start to feel over whelmed and cry more. xD And once I cry, my eyes are puffed up and itchy for the rest of the day. Which is both annoying, and unattractive.

I mostly don't cry over anything, but Hotarubi no Mori e made me cry a lot, even when I re-watched it for the third and fourth time.

The soundtrack gives me the feels, too.
