Classical music listening tips:

- Just because it starts off slow and pretty doesn’t mean it’s not going to get seriously intense later on. In fact, there’s probably more of a chance.

- Most pieces average about 8-15 minutes long. Entire symphonies can last roughly an hour, but you can always find separate movements. Be patient and wait. Even if you already know it and just want a specific part, just enjoy the build-ups, man. 

- There’s all kinds. Anything from dark Russian waltzes to peppy English marches, to thousands of symphonies by various composers. Even if you don’t like a certain tone, there’s always more and if you find something you like, and if you listen on YouTube, the recommendations are pretty good at linking similar styles.

- Non-lyric stuff is great for studying, relaxing, or just spacing out.

- In the quiet parts, try to avoid turning up the volume too loud (but of course if you need to, then 2 clicks or so should do), unless you want to jump a foot out of your seat when the dynamics suddenly change.

- Cool stuff to get you started that you might recognize from cartoons or movies or something:

Johann Strauss II - The Blue Danube Waltz , Tchaikovsky - Waltz of the Flowers , Verdi - Aida - Grand March , Vivaldi - Four Seasons , Pachelbel - Canon in D Major , Frederic Chopin - Nocturne In E Flat Major, Op.9 No.2 , Gioachino Rossini : The Barber Of Seville - Overture , Rossini - William Tell Overture Final

- “But it’s so boring and quiet and slow!”

Well, there’s always the ones who skip the intro, if you’d like that better:

Khachaturian - Masquerade Suite - Waltz , Franz Schubert - Marche Militaire , Johannes Brahms - Hungarian Dance No. 5 , Mozart-The Marriage of Figaro , Wilhelm Richard Wagner-Flight of the Valkyries

- It’s not just old, dead guys either- there’s cool modern stuff too:

Blue Shades - Frank Ticheli , Into the Storm - Robert W. Smith , Equus By Eric Whitacre , The Hounds of Spring - Alfred Reed

- A few pieces I personally like:

George Gershwin - An American in Paris , Dmitri Shostakovich - Waltz No. 2 , Rossini - The Thieving Magpie Overture , Franz Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 , Bach - Air on G String , Prokofiev - Dance of the Knights , Shostakovich - Symphony No 7 in C major, Op 60 - Gergiev , Gustav Holst - The Planets, Op. 32 , Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition , Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture

- I can’t even really think of every piece I like just off of the top of my head right now. There’s just so much out there! So go out there and listen, and have fun.

I'm so tired why won't they speak up, or shut everyone else up. Like if you aren't going to talk about it but show it to other musicians who give interviews tell them, hey you know just don't mention this anytime soon? I haven't said anything, but he obviously doesn't do that let's them talk about it and he remains quiet.

I do think it’s interesting that his team is allegedly allowing multiple people to listen to the music but we have yet to have any of it leak. When are they going to let Julian listen and hit us with 6 second audio clips?
