    My favorite piece of all time is the "Eighteenth Variation" on a Theme of Paganini, by Rachmaninoff.

    I've loved classical music since I can remember. It started off with scores to epic films, classic crossover, and sacred music. I've been expanding my interests as the years go on. There's nothing quite like Bach, Wagner, Beethoven, Mozart, etc. There are so many CDs out there. What are some of your favorite particular CDs that you feel any classical music lover should have in their collection? Thanks.

    Classical music make up a majority of what I listen to.

    I love Liszt, Mozart(His Requiem was amazing) and Rachmaninoff, S. Bach and myself(Just had to add that in, I do a little piano composing sometimes.) if I had to name my top 5 favorite composers.

    I´m not such a big fan of classical music, but I appreciate the work of Beethoven a lot!

    An other case is Carl Orff. It´s not exactly classical music...he created something of it´s own. I´d call it "epical classical-orientated music". It´s just wonderful. So much power, so much emotion! The switching between loud and feebly, between fast and slow. For his "Carmina Burana" he even created an own artifical language! I find his work outstanding and really impressive.

    I'm a big fan of Carl Orff. I love his music no matter what label is tagged on it. It is powerful and emotional. It really hits me. I especially love Carmina Burana. There's nothing quite like it.

    I saw that someone made a video using clips from 300 with that song. Check it out.

    Classical music is a big part in my life. Come to think of it there isn't much out there that I do not like. Some of the modern stuff is pretty good too, as long as they follow the general rules of composing. I find that listening to classical music while I'm working in my shop brings out my best. Some of my all time favorites are:
    1. The Planets by Holst.
    2. Lohengrin: prelude to act III by Wagner.
    3. The Firebird suite by Stravinsky.
    4. The Water music suite by Handel.
    Then again there is Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture, Brahms Sympony #2 in Dmaj and his Tragic overture #4 in Emin. Vivaldi's Four Seasons. I also listen to alot of classical guitar stuff. Fernando Sor, Terraga, Carulli, Giulani. Stuff composed for Lute by Luys De Navareaz and John Dowland are my favorites.

    A good site to find these free is http://www.classiccat.net/index.htm 100% free.

    I tell people I like "classical music," meaning that I like selected artists from Baroque, Classical and Modern genres. Not so much the "new music" or postmodern stuff -- it's kind of trivial, like all jazz, rock, blues and pop.

    But, I dig the greats, especially the Germans and wops. Who can ignore Schumann, Brahms, Bruckner, Beethoven, Strauss, Berwald and Mozart? Respighi and Paganini? Even Saint-Saens is a classic, although Debussy has lost favor. I can enjoy some Chopin, but no Mendelssohn or Dvorak.

    If you have other friends into classical, share mp3s before you buy. Conductor makes a big difference, orchestra less so.
