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.
Low content posts, including memes, pictures of ticket stubs, etc., should be submitted to /r/ClassicalMemes - such posts made here will be 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.
- /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.
