I dont know about any other coutary but in india it is supposed to be the top of all music. Classical music is loved and lived in the fairs, Festivales and every harmonic moment out here. So i define it as divine.

I guess I would define classical music from the era it was written as well as the people who wrote it.

My personal favorite is Mozart and his Requiem is spectacular.

I do love a lot of the classics like Bethoven, Bach, Tchaicovsky but have always been partial to Mozart.

I think most people think of classical music from an era point of view and I say that because we now have "Classic Rock" which refers to the 60's and 70's era rock music.

When someone mentions classical music, I just immediately think of Mozart, Bach, etc...

For me, classical music is technically beautiful and doesn't rely on emotions, or lyrics to give it meaning. It cam be from any era as there are many modern classical composers.

I agree. You can't leave any of the fundamentals of this era out by substituting implemenative ways of new music and sum it up to Classical music. Just an opinion.

Well, I was always taught that the Classical period in Classical Music started in 1750, just after Bach's death and just before Mozart's birth, and that Bach was a Baroque composer. The Classical Music period ended with Beethoven's death. Personally I refer to everything else as mainstream classical but not of the classical period. Most people have a good idea of what I mean by that.

For me it's about the feel / style of the music. A piece can be played on a flute and be ultra-modern, so it's not the instrument. And if I'm going to a concert that bills itself as having relaxing classical music I wouldn't mind if they had modern-written pieces in that same style. I understand that the word initially had a specific meaning, but meanings change over time. Blues music as a genre has changed over time. I think that's a good thing.
