    Default New to Classical

    Hey all,

    I recently purchased Mike Oldfields Spheres and think it is awesome. Now I know most don't class it as entirely Classical music, but I would like to discover some (more) classical music. Could anybody tell me some artists that produce music similar to Mike Oldfields Spheres album? I have tried a little Karl Jenkins and I also quite like that, but am not too keen on the choir aspects, right now at least. So I guess I am looking for more Orchestral music?

    Many thanks in advance.

    David Bedford orchestrated Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells. I don't know if that would suit you. Bedford and Oldfield collaborated on a few projects though their compositional starting points are very different.

    You could give Michael Nyman a listen,he wrote the score for The Piano,which I've still not seen.
    Then theres John Williams who used to be in a band called Sky before writing film scores.
    A few years ago Sir Paul McCartney wrote a symphony,can't remember what it was called tho.
    And all those moments are soon lost,like tears in the rain•••
