Whether you're a musician, a newbie, a composer or a listener, welcome.


  • When submitting a link to a performance, please state the title and composer, and ideally the names of the performers.

  • Memes and other low-content posts about classical music and composers should be submitted to /r/ClassicalMemes - such posts made here will be removed.

  • Off-topic submissions will be removed. Submissions with 2 or more reports will be auto-moderated. We do check automoderated posts to make sure nothing was wrongly caught in there, but if you believe your post was wrongly removed, feel free to message us.

  • Self-promotion is handled on a case by case basis. Standard redditiquette about spam applies. If you're a musician, otherwise active in the sub, advertising your own upcoming concert, that is fine. If you heavily promote your own content and do little else, your posts will be classified as spam and removed.

  • Before posting, consider whether one of our sister subreddits may be more appropriate for your submission. For instance, music identification requests could be posted to /r/tipofmytongue, your own compositions to /r/composer, movie soundtracks to /r/moviemusic and video game soundtracks to /r/gamemusic.

  • The term "classical music" is somewhat porous. While this sub is not limited to Western classical music – there is no reason not to discuss other classical traditions here - that is currently its main focus. Contemporary music strongly influenced by classical traditions is also entirely appropriate to discuss. Popular music with significant classical influences is also welcome provided that the clear purpose is to consider that music thoughtfully in the context of classical traditions. Beyond those cases, most popular musical genres are better discussed elsewhere, and posts about them will be removed.


  • /r/classicalresources - A variety of resources to help you expand your classical knowledge. Contains guides for beginners, an index of important composers and their works, and lists of classical pieces organised by genre, era, and theme.
