My first CD was this, which I got in a charity shop when I was about 8. I’m still not sure how into avant-garde classical music I actually was as an 8-year-old, but certainly won’t complain.

And my first vinyl record, which I bought about a year ago:

Ooh I love "Rite of Spring"! ("Firebird" is pretty great too.)

You were a pretty hip 8 year old.

That's really a pretty cool choice @never wears a mac!

I still remember the first time our music teacher had played the Sacrificial Dance to us twelve-year-old  charts listeners. It was magical, the whole room seemed to vibrate because he turned the big speakers to full volume and when it ended, no one dared to make a noise.

The first classical music CDs I bought were the sixth symphony of Tschaikowsky and the Unfinished symphony of Schubert. These are still my two favourite symphonies although Schostakovich's fifth comes close.

Your first LP is very cool too,  does it also have My Lovely Horse on it? a-hard-days-night-george-10

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Oh wow, that must have been an experience! You have great taste in symphonies too, Shostakovich is fab.

Haha, sadly My Lovely Horse was a mere foal back then …

@Martha I hope you know how to play the unnecessary sax solo in My Lovely Horse!

 

For those who have no clue what we're talking about, watch Father Ted, just do it, you won't regret it. (It is part of my purpose on earth to get as many people as possible to watch Father Ted. One of the best television series ever made!).
