    Descriptive Words for Classical Music

    Sometimes when I`m making a post, I get stuck trying to find the right adjectives. So I thought this thread might be helpful. If anyone can think of any I missed, feel free to add on...

    I`ll try to put them in some sort of order at some point. Not sure, alphabetically or grouped according to similarity...

    glorious
    triumphant/al
    wonderful
    great
    thrilling
    gentle
    sweet
    flowing
    fluid
    lush
    rich
    heavy
    sombre
    solemn
    dramatic
    exciting
    bombastic
    colourful
    lean
    beautiful
    gorgeous
    full
    thin
    uplifting
    dry
    driving
    sensitive
    kitschy
    schmaltzy
    tense
    dense
    trudgy
    abusive
    reedy
    brassy
    catastrophic
    cataclysmic
    cacophonous
    dissonant
    consonant
    edgy
    brilliant
    sparkling
    romantic
    lovely
    ebulliant
    amorphous
    energizing
    dark
    light
    intense
    sensuous/al
    static
    revolutionary
    upbeat
    uptempo
    lively
    jaunty
    bouncy
    fun
    refreshing
    funny
    humourous
    amusing
    tedious
    endless
    enchanting
    mysterious
    disturbing
    intelligent
    inspirational
    inspiring

    Maybe at some point it would be fun to have examples of each term. I think we may have to start a new thread for that...

    Ok, but what classical music would that describe exactly?
    ''Music, I feel, should be emotional first and intellectual second.'' - Maurice Ravel
