I'm not a HUGE fan of classical but I don't care for the big bombastic symphonies so much. I do like Tchaikovsky's pieces however so, I guess its a matter of individual composers in the case of classical for me. [/quote:3brz869i]
(Just to add to this:) Surely this is the case for most fans in most genres. I mean, I like &quot;metal&quot;, but just because someone is a musician working with that genre doesn't mean I'm going to like their output. Likewise, there are classical composers I like, and others I don't. (Hey, there's bluegrass I like and bluegrass I don't.) And, of course, just because I generally like a musician's output, doesn't mean that I'm going to like all of it. I can think of plenty of bands that I love to death but are nevertheless capable of producing things that make me think, &quot;Well, that was rubbish!&quot;. <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->

Of course, that goes for books and authors, too. People will tell me things like &quot;Hey, you like that science fiction stuff, you must like this thing.&quot; Which IMO is not terribly sensible .... <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> And of course, sometimes authors that I generally like deliver me a turkey (maybe a very successful turkey that clearly lots of other people think flies like an eagle, but not me!). Still ... I've liked all of &quot;Prince of Nothing&quot; so far! <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: --> view post
