I've suddenly become quite overwhelmed by classical music. I can't get enough of it at the moment but the problem is I know absolutely nothing about it. My absolute favourite based on my limited and novel knowledge of the genre is Tchaikovsky.

Any suggestions? I'm sure there are at least a few classical music lovers here.

Verdi's Four Seasons. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Carl Orff's Carmina Burana.

There is the noisy classical music of the nineteenth century (Beethoven, Brahms, etc), and the gentler music of the eighteenth century (Mozart, Handel, etc). I rather prefer the second kind. Got any preference?

For more modern classical I really enjoy Ludovico Einaudi



and Max Richter too



All the old classical genius you've probably already heard of

I'm not sure how to respond. I really don't know enough about it. From what I've listened to Tchaikovsky is my sort of thing which is quite loud I guess? It seems quite epic and intense compared to the other stuff I've listened to. Almost cinematic in a way, I find it quite enthralling! It evokes a strong emotional response in me.

So many responses so far I will have a lot to check out thanks guys and keep 'em coming!

By the way to the person who posted Ludovico I absolutely love his stuff too! I didn't really know it was considered classical music but it makes sense. Anything else like that with pianos I really like also

I don't understand the popular culture reference lol. I must be missing something. Care to elaborate?

In that case, Beethoven and Brahms may be your thing. Check their symphonies. Also the first section of Holst's Planet Suite (the one about war) is dramatic enough for anybody.

Max Richter does a bit of piano stuff like Ludovico as well

Also here's another, they're kind of classical, kind of rock, kind of electronic but so so epic, they generally write film trailer music

2 Steps from Hell

I'd recommend Puccini - Madame Butterfly in particular.

Also Bizet's Carmen. That's got some right catchy little tunes. Goodness help you if you get one of those stuck in your head

I didn't even think of opera.
If the OP likes the "noisier" kind of classical music, then Wagner is another possibility.
