This site is for those of you who love to listen to or want to get into the wonderful world of classical music.

I am just a simple music lover who happened to take some serious college classical music classes and talked to many music lovers about their favorite composers and music pieces. I listed some of the most popular classical music pieces by great composers. Think of this list as a "must" list to build your music collection.
