BEGINNERS.

 

EDIT:  Actually, you know what.  I've been wasting my time.  No beginners seem interested and it's just a bunch of experts chiming in with their 2 cents.  So, why don't you guys just handle it then?

i'm a classical beginner. just wanted to tell you thanks for starting this thread.

Think of this this way, you don't know a lot about French cuisine but want to invite your significant other for Valentine's day, you'd still check the reviews before choosing simply because there are only pros and no cons to do so.

 

By the way, I'm not an "expert" in classical music.



I believe what OP was trying to do is getting the ball rolling.  A simple search on Head-Fi for "classical music" yields thousands of threads, most of them similar to one another, and from what I've read, when people ask, "What kind of classical will I be interested in?" the answer head-fiers give rarely contains a specific performer.
