I am sure we have some classical music aficionados here. What better way to bring them out of the woodwork than starting a thread about it? :biggrin:

Post away your favorite classical music here!


I'll start.

Ou est le Chopin?!

And it may not be 'classical' (in that it's from 2006!) but Avril 14th is beautiful. Heard it first in Marie Antoinette, really builds up to a profound and moving finish:

Can't go wrong with Chopin.

I'll see your Chopin and raise you a Vivaldi. :biggrin:

Ou est le Chopin?!


I have occasionally claimed that if I was stranded on an island with no music but Chopin, I would be content. Not enthused with my lot in life, but content.

If Grieg had written more, he might replace Chopin- though I must say his music is so overwrought it might be dangerous if I didn't listen to anything else...

Some favorites from the Peer Gynt Suites:

And of course, the proto-metal of the Mountain King:

Daaayyum. I'm not sure whether that inspires me in my efforts to learn the guitar, or makes me want to give up and just listen and watch...

Another great thread CM!! My favorite genres of 80's music, motown, disco and classical, share equal love from me. I will have a ball here! Thanks for putting it up.

A couple more of my favorites. It's amazing, I've been listening to these since I was old enough to listen, thanks to my dad, and some people I know have never heard these in their lives, or if they have know what they actually are.

Aram Khachaturian - Sabre Dance

Giachino Rossini - William Tell Overture Finale

We now move on to the William Tell Overture:

Brassed Off - William Tell Overture


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz_9FrhCBnI

Andrea Vadrucci (Vadrum) - William Tell Overture. This one is now one my favorite versions of this piece, and if you watch the video you'll soon know why

I'm a violinist so I have a thing for paganini, but I'm pretty sure his compositions can be universally appreciated.
