Nigel Paterson Identify Symphony Themes (23) RE: Identify Symphony Themes 19 Mar 18

The convention I grew up with was 'Classical' with a capital C, refers to the historical time period, roughly 1750-1830, 'classical' with a small c is a catchall word for the vast amount of other orchestral music (sometimes called 'serious music'), art music, film scores etc, etc. that abound.
            Joe, if you enjoy listening to symphonies, don't fret too much about remembering from where a theme came. Make your own play list, keep listening, and be on the lookout for composers whose music you haven't heard...Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler et al have had it all their own way for too long!
