  2. Classical music is so fun ! You guys are also one of the people who introduced me to classical music!thanks halidon❤️

  3. Classical music is absolutely not boring! My 4 year old little girl and I listen to your playlists together all the time 😊 she even listens to it on her Kindle. She calls it her “ballet” music and dances around to it! It’s fantastic and I’m so glad she has learned to appreciate its beauty at such a young age 😊 Thank you Halidonmusic for another wonderful playlist ❤️ Have a lovely Sunday!

  4. You are great. Thank you! It is such a fun to listen to all these masterpieces.

  5. This is a great compilation of passionate and epic classical compositions. You can feel the energy in these music pieces. I heard a lot of these compositions in great films and Nobuo Uematsu(Final Fantasy composer) was inspired by these compositions for some of his wonderful tracks in the games.

  6. Classical music touched my heart this year 2022. I love this site ever since. I used to find it boring but I was just ignorant. Music is magic and alive.

  7. Back in my younger days, I used to think it WAS boring, but now that I’m up in years, I love it!!

    Fantastic selection; thanks for posting. 👍

  8. What a horrible caption – who ever said that ?

    If I were the maker of this video I would have titled it :

    Classical music is so very much beautiful, it cannot be topped by anything else.

  9. Just leaving comment on another definitely not boring classical music compilation – to make sure I listen to it again someday

  10. NOT boring in the least! The great composers of the past were like the rock stars of today! In the past there was Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, the three B’s and in the 20th century we had the Beatles, BeeGees and the Beach Boys, three other B’s! Anyone who erroneously thinks? that classical music is boring should listen to the famous Khatchaturians’ Sword Dance and George Enesco’s beautiful stirring Romanian Rhapsody along with Strauss’s great timeless waltzes/marches like his famous Egyptian March and polkas which will send you spinning around on the dance floor in your head, just to name a few but there are many many more! What’s boring is listening to the same kind of music all the time! As a lifelong pianist for over 60 years and a composer who has performed my work publicly I think of music as one big diner menu, something for everyone’s tastes! The arts are food for the soul! Enjoy it all! Great melodies are gifts from the spiritual realm in the stratosphere, the universe! Amen~

  11. Palladio. We all know it’s gonna be good when we hear that! Thank you for putting in one of the most epic pieces.
