Best Classical Bands/Artists

Classical artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good classical bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top classical music bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Classical groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all classical bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest classical bands of all time, since the most famous classical music artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best classical music.

You can click on the classical band names to see more information about that particular notable classical music group. If they're near the top of the best classical music artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top classical music bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the classical band names themselves.

List artists include Paul McCartney, Billy Joel and many additional artists as well. This order of the list changes dynamically based on votes, so thumbs up your favorites. If you're a fan of Terry Bozzio or Tori Amos, make sure you give them some love.

All important, significant and iconic names in classical music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new classical bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of classical music, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into classical music music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good classical music bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent classical bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best classical bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest classical musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular classical bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

Re-rank the list to fit your opinions, make it votable then share it with your friends to see what your social circle thinks of this topic. (248 items)
