Classical Music is not as popular today as it used to be. It has been around for hundreds of years and it is the oldest type of music out there. There are different types of classical music such as Medieval, Romantic and contemporary classical. Many people who listen to classical music have a deep appreciation for the music and the composer. They do not know why they are mesmorized by the sounds and how it makes them feel. Classical music is very complex in nature. It does not have just one or two chords throughout the whole score. Classical music consists of many instruments or one instrument in a song. It takes on various sounds and feelings. It is not just soft sounding as many people think; many compositions are complex, dark and mysterious.
Many people often think of listening to classical music in a restaurant with a bottle of wine and in the company of friends and or family or that it is just for high-society people. But there are some to enjoy listening to it most when they are alone. Classical music is played a lot on public radio stations and there are also places on the internet where you can listen to it as well. There are many composers with CD’s that you can buy from a retail store. Do not forget about the wonderful orchestra concerts out there too! Not many people will appreciate classical music when they first hear it, and sometimes it is because listening to classical music is not what they are used to listening to. If you take the time to learn about classical music, what it is about, how it is written and why, you will grow a deeper feeling and appreciation for this type of music.
Classical music can also reduce stress and blood pressure. It is compiled of high-frequency sounds and it is said by some studies that these sounds re-energize the cortex of the brain and it stimulates health. Most popular music today operate on low-frequency sounds. These low-frequencies give you the opposite effect and make you feel down. Classical music is also extremely beneficial for pregnant women.
