    Post Re: What is your favorite piece of classical music?

    These are great works folks. Here are some more of my favorites not yet mentioned:

    Bach - Passacaglia et Fuga
    Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition (whole thing)
    Liszt- Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
    Chopin - Prelude op 28/15 - "Raindrops"
    Rodrigo - Concierto de Aranjuez
    Romeo and Juliet overture - Profokiev
    Stravinsky - Rite of Spring
    Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata

    And Opera:
    Pilgrim's Chorus from Tannhaeuser (Wagner)
    Die Walkuere - Leb wohl, du kuehnes herrliches Kind!
    Tosca - E Lucevan le stelle - Puccini
    Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici (Brindis) (I like the lyrics to this)
    Sposa son disprezzata (Vivaldi - from Il Tamerlano)
    Vogliare Mi Bene (Madama Butterfly) - Puccini

    When I consider these wonderful pieces in a racial light, I notice that:
    1. The Slavs tend to express deep, deep pathos/suffering in their music - and also sometimes joy and exultation of a type
    2. The Italians are masters of the "human" emotions - joy, love, grief, dispair, anger -etc
    3. The Germans are good at jaunty "inspirational" music (like Wagner at his best - Ride of the Valkyries, etc) - and also at some stuff that can be really transcendental (like Bach)

    While I must admit to being a long-time admirer of the Master (Wagner), nothing stirs my inner soul as does the Jägerchor from Weber's "Der Freischütz".

    Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!

    Post Re: What is your favorite piece of classical music?

    Last I read, 'favourite', not 'favourites' was in the title of this thread

    1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky. My favourite classical piece since I was six years old. I'm listening to it now, actually. Brilliant
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Jaunty - Inspirational? - Just watch it behind the wheel:

    Wagners "Ritt der Walküren" gefährlichste Musik für Autofahrer
    London (dpa) - Wegen seiner Lautstärke und Schnelligkeit ist Richard Wagners "Ritt der Walküren" nach Meinung des britischen Automobilclubs RAC die gefährlichste Musik für Autofahrer. Die Organisation verwies am Mittwoch in der Zeitung "The Times" auf eine neue Studie der kanadischen Memorial University, derzufolge solche Musikstücke die Reaktionsschnelligkeit des Fahrers um 20 Prozent senken. Nach Wagners Walküren stehen "Firestarter" von Prodigy, "Red Alert" von Basement Jaxx und "Insomnia" von Faithless oben auf der Schwarzen Liste. Empfohlen werden hingegen ruhige Lieder. Umfragen zufolge bevorzugen britische Autofahrer jedoch Rock und keineswegs Kuschelsongs.
    Für die kanadische Studie führten Probanden geistige und körperliche Tätigkeiten aus, während sie Musik von unterschiedlicher Lautstärke und Schnelligkeit hörten. Ihre Reaktionsschnelligkeit verlangsamte sich den Angaben zufolge, je lauter die Musik wurde. "Es ist wichtig, dass Autofahrer ihre Musik sorgfältig aussuchen", sagte der Psychologe Conrad King. Andere Studien hätten gezeigt, dass sich bei schneller Musik das Unfallrisiko verdopple. Ein schneller Takt beschleunige Herzschlag und Blutdruck: "Ob man sich Oper, klassische Musik oder den neuesten Rave anhört, spielt dabei keine Rolle", sagte King. "Entscheidend ist das Tempo."




    Wagner 'dangerous to drivers'
    From correspondents in London
    April 15, 2004

    WHEN Richard Wagner composed his powerful Ride of the Valkyries in the 1850s, he surely wasn't thinking of any danger he was posing to 21st century motorists.
    Britain's RAC Foundation for Motoring today named the strident classical piece as the No 1 tune not to play while driving, based on research which the foundation says shows that loud music can cause accidents.
    The Dies Irae from Giuseppe Verdi's Requiem was also considered a no-no. The top five list of tunes to avoid while behind the wheel was rounded out by three modern songs - Firestarter by the Prodigy, Red Alert by Basement Jaxx and Insomnia by Faithless.
    To help music-loving motorists, the foundation also provided a top five list of songs that may safely be played while driving, "albeit quietly".
    Norah Jones's smash hit Come Away with Me was deemed calm enough, as was Mad World by Gary Jules. Other songs on the safe list were Another Day by R&B singer Lemar, Too Lost in You by girl group The Sugababes and Breathe Easy by boy band Blue.
