[n.b.:Brahms was 19th century (1833-1897). And Bach composed in the Baroque style, not Classical]


close enough for jazz.

Gee, I love it when people dissect my creative nonsense.

[n.b.:Brahms was 19th century (1833-1897). And Bach composed in the Baroque style, not Classical]

Anachronisms aside, I was generalizing. Plus, Baroque is a type of Classical music.

Thank you, this has been a production of Capricious Pilfer

I guess this could be considered a Freudian Slip, or maybe just forgetting the word. It's supposed to be Capricious Piffle.

ooh!

i'll take a romeo y julieta.
what about the whisky?

well, at least i smoke in the knowledge that someone smoked before me and drank, and looked out their window knowing that whoever came and went, the white paint opposite would never yellow, and the dawn would come, no matter who died of love.

*aghast* Oh NOOOOO... all these years of music training down the drain. History is on the verge of being rewritten. But please do me a favor and cite your source, Wunderkind, so I may die happy

Ok, maybe Baroque and Classical aren't exactly the same, but I haven't had years of music training (ok, I have, but junior high band and Jazz aren't the same as what you're talking about) and I've always just called all pre-1850 music that's played on public radio stations classical. Perhaps I would be more right in saying that it's classic music.
