Things to Know

  • If you're new to classical music, and are looking for recommendations: first of all, welcome! /r/classicalresources is an archive for people who aren't sure where to start or are looking for more music they'll like, and we send all requests for basics over there. In addition to that, if you're posting an extremely frequently asked question, you may be told to use the search bar to look for similar posts.

  • If you see something that is rude, offensive, or otherwise strikes you as wrong, please report it and we'll take a look. Reports bring things to our attention faster, and posts and comments above a certain number of reports will be automatically removed (with exceptions as needed).

  • Posts from accounts under a certain (small) amount of karma must be manually approved by a mod in order to appear in the feed.

  • Remember that not everyone has the same tastes. If you can't tell why anyone would like a particular composer, don't be afraid to ask rather than dismissing them as "overrated." (On that note, please don't insult others for liking or disliking a specific composer!) And if you're feeling alone in your love of a specific composer, feel free to post some works of theirs that might intrigue others.

  • We acknowledge that the term "classical music" is somewhat porous. While this sub is absolutely not limited to Western classical music, that is currently its main focus.


  • /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.
