Can't for free? What?


What I think you are asking however, is no. You can usually find classical CD's for less than a dollar a piece at old music shops, Bach recordings are a dime a dozen though the good ones are generally costly. Pandora has a FEW good classical stations as well.


EDIT: also, there are a few single downloads of certain pieces, none of which I can think of off the top of my head. Google public domain classical music.

Don't we all, this is the real world however. You can either buy them (or download them illegally). I don't endorse illegal downloading but if you want it free that's the way you'll probably go unless you find good stuff in public domain.

Unfortunately, we americans are not blessed with a pirate party to procure our spotify rights. Just use grooveshark or something, though they don't have the widest selection. Their lack of black metal has recently enraged me.

IMSLP (IMSLP.org) has a section for free, legal recordings of many pieces (it'll be on the page of the actual piece you're looking for). You're not going to find Horrowitz, Bell, Ma, Bernstein, or the like on those sections however.


(protip: use torrents or go to college, music libraries have weeks and weeks worth of classical CDs)

just youtube... real classical musicians didn't write albums, so theres no point in buying one when its best to be listened to based on your mood... start off listening on youtube to bach, mozart, tchaikovsky, and bethoven, that'll give you a good feel for what kind of stuff you like for certain moods you're in, also those will give you links to videos of other musicians... also listen to yiruma, he's modern, but writes piano pieces that will smash your heart into a bajillion pieces, put it back together, then melt it down

Also, the website Medici.tv is a great source for classical videos. All top quality (not user uploaded, but all recorded professionally). They also stream live concerts

Best $10 a month I've ever spent
