Classical Music

What, in your opinion, is the best period of classical music? Also, does anyone know of a good, contemporary classical composer as an example of the period?

My preference is the late Romantic period (Beethoven, Mahler) with huge orchestras and using vocalists as another type of instrument. My tastes are quite varied. I even like atonal music. I will go from classical music, to opera, to Alice in Chains (often in one sitting!)

The Punk Claissical scene rocked. The Sex Swords, fronted by Ludwig VB were way ahead of their time.

Nice try. Write your own damn essay! I don't get paid to sit here and do your homework for you. I get paid to sit here and make stupid posts.

I'm trying to write a research paper, thank you very much, about the opinions of internet forums members and their ideas of music. I wanted to include you, but OH NO, not now.

I'm listening to Locatelli right now. His music is very bright and airy which, I believe, would place him in the early Classical period, not the Baroque style even though he composed most of his music between 1730 and 1750.

I don't think I've listened to much contemporary classical and am just curious how it sounds.

Best Classical music ? The question requires thousands of words to answer and about as many posts here at Bike Forums.
I don't understand your saying contemporary classical composer...period but a good idea would be to listen to Billy Joel's work in that realm, he's been at it for years. Not his POP, his classical compostions. Locatelli's a good one so you've a good start.

I never would have guessed that he had composed some classical pieces.

contemporary classical seems vaguely oxymoronic but Steve Reich might fit in
