A 52 Week Autobiography Through Music – Week 29 – Western Classical Music
I admit that this is all a bit silly. I am giving lots of time to individual Rock and Roll artists yet I can't single out one composer of western Classical music that I would consider worthy of their own video. Not because I don't think they're important or worthy of respect but rather that I was personally never overly influenced or captivated by any one composer's music music in the way that I have been by the Rock and Jazz music I talk about.
Also, no matter how accepted it is I really don't like the term "Classical Music". Classical was a period in western music like Baroque or Romantic. To refer to the whole range of western art music music as "Classical" just kind of bugs me. I also don't like the term "Art Music"...
Here though is what wikipedia has to say about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_music
