I was just listening to KXPR out of Sacramento, and they played the first piece of classical music I ever liked.......The Moldau by Smetena. The reason it sticks in my mind so well is because I was in fifth grade at the time. I did not even think about joining band until seventh grade, and an appreciation of classical music was a few years after that. It was our weekly classroom music lesson, the selection was played, without explanation, and we were told to draw what we thought the piece was about (my drawing was a lake). After we finished, the teacher told us about the piece, and what it was describing. At the time, I was NOT a fan of classical music, but the Moldau appealed to me. When I bought my first classical LP, in tenth grade, it was a recording of the Moldau and some other East-European pieces (including Carnival Overture by Dvorak. :) )

Anyway, enough of my past. What was the first piece of (classical) music you liked (loved?)? :hum:

It's hard to say, but I fell in LOVE with three pieces at the same time.
-Piano Concerto No. 2 Andante (Rachmoninov)
-Prince Igor: Poleveztian Dances (Borodin) (Dance of the Slaive Maidensw/ intro and Dance of the Wild Men)
-Night On Bald Mountain (Mussorgsky) (Orchestra version)

Oh I remember my first orchestral love... Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Vinyl record by the Hartford Symphony, my grandfather playing lead violin. To this day everytime I hear a bassoon I think of that haunting opening line... absolutely brilliant.

The first piece I heard that I just loved the first time I heard it was Bach's Chorale, "Kom Susser Tod" I believe it's called. I don't really like Baroque music that much but that is still one of my favorite pieces.

For me it was Rosamunde Overture by Franz Schubert. Playing it in Junior High led me to buy it on CD, and it was the first piece I can remember prompting me to consider a career in music.

The first one i fully loved would probably be Canon in D by Pachelbel, my friend taught me the start of it to me a few years back and then showed me the whole song and it was awesome.

The piece that I just fell in love with was the first "actual" concert piece I ever played. English Folk Song Suite by R.V. Williams.

I think mine was Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. It's so neat!
