    Post Re: Classical Music Lovers?

    Favorite would have to be Tchaikovsky for his sheer volume of inspired work. I also don't think anyone else wrote symphonies, operas and ballets all of such brilliance.

    Close seconds would be Wagner, Mozart, Mahler and Schubert. I also enjoy Beethoven, Brahms, Rossini, Prokofiev, Johann Strauss and Rimsky-Korsakov immensely.

    Puccini, Verdi, Shostakovich, Dvorak, Bach, Rachmaninov, Liszt, Vivaldi, Corelli, Bruckner, Chopin, Paganini, Saint-Saens, Grieg, Sibelius, Stravinsky, Faure, and Richard Strauss get a lot of playing time as well.

    I don't really like Haydn, Handel, Schumann, Bizet, Vaughan Williams or Elgar. Haven't really listened to Berlioz, Weber,Telemann, Purcell, Schoenberg or Webern. Holst, Offenbach, and Ponchielli all wrote good music but had limited bodies of work.

    To summarize my all-time favorite select few pieces:

    Tchaikovsky - Swan Lake, complete ballet
    Tchaikovsky - Sleeping Beauty waltz
    Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture
    Tchaikovsky - Romeo and Juliet Overture
    Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto #1 in Bb minor
    Mozart - Don Giovanni Overture
    Mozart - Requiem, complete
    Mozart - Symphony No.40 in G minor, molto allegro
    Rossini - Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Overture and Largo al Factotum
    Stravinsky - The Rite of Spring
    Mahler - Symphony No.5 1st Mvt.
    Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No.2
    Schubert - Ständchen (Serenade)
    Wagner - Pilgerchor from Tannhäuser
    Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries from Die Walküre

    Finally had a chance to listen... nice!

    I liked all of it, especially The Tomb and Hexenkessel. But I'm most partial to Twilight, since I keep playing it over and over.

    Thanks for the links!

    Post Re: Classical Music Lovers?

    I have been getting into classical music this last year. Mainly when I started to learn to play piano. I am really into Richard Wagner,Antonio Vivaldi,Bach,Bethoven,Franz Liszt,Chopin,etc and many others. I think classical music is the highest form of music up to this day(even though, I been listening to metal music most of my life)
    Just close your eyes...can you remember
    The generations not so long ago
    I feel the shameless urge that we must restore
    Our former king to his rightful throne
    And with me lords and maidens
    We wait for the chosen son's return

    I come alive
    It's a time for celebration
    Our will to restore
    Make our past become the futre once more

    Still he lives! 2000 years have passed
    And still we're yearning for his return
    We fulfill a wishful prohecy
    And so the chanting begins
    Hail Caesar...Hail Caesar...we render unto you
    What is still yours

    Favourite Classical Music Tune

    If you had to pick a favourite classical music tune, which would it be?

    Mine would be Johann Sebastian Bach's famous organ piece, Toccata and Fugue in D minor.

    J. S. Bach - Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565
