My favorite piece of music from the Classical period is Beethoven's 9th Symphony, as well as his 5th and 7th symphonies.

If you have any pieces that you prefer, post them below.

Nice Beethoven's symphonies choices. My favorite is his 9th. Have you listened to his 6th?

I also like Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, Mahler's 5th and 9th symphonies, Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn, and Ravel's Miroirs.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique is magnificent. I also do enjoy Haydn's Surprise Symphony, as well as Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, and Mozart's Piano Sonatas.

If you like the sonatas, then you should try the concertos. The sonatas were gems, but they were intended for private performance and enjoyment. The concertos are like the sonatas but 10 times better :P

Most, if not all (I'm sure a lot of people would say all) of Beethoven's piano sonatas are damn good. They're all fun to play, too, but I only learned the Moonlight, Pathetique, Appassionata, Waldstein, and Tempest. Hammerklavier's a good one, but it's long as hell (the third movement's like 22 minutes or even half an hour, depending on the interpretation), so I'm not going to be learning the whole thing any time soon, lol.

I could go on and on for other piano solos, concertos, and orchestral works. There are literally hundreds that are definitely worth listening to...
Have no regrets.

Mozart's Requiem Mass, especially the Lacrimosa.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

I find it a bit hard to get into classical music because of the lack of vocals. I am so spoiled with having lyrics to latch onto. Nonetheless, I do really like this piece by a relatively lesser known composer.

Music with vocals is always good, but I've always appreciated the talent of the artists that compose such great pieces.

L'Histoire du soldat Igor Stravinsky

I don't think it's embedding right when I preview.. I'm following the instructions I think, anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of the will of God. The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth,

I love classical music, particularly the modern period.

After I'm done listening to Stravinsky up there, I'll post another one.

This is the very best version of Mozart's Requiem KV 626 there is IMHO.

Lacrimosa is hauntingly beautiful, it can easily bring tears to my eyes.
Bronto?
Congrats.

Worthy and enjoyable pieces all. I am torn between Beethoven's 3rd Piano Concerto and his Violin Concerto.

Did anyone know about the fact that Johan de Meij wrote Symphony No. 1 "The Lord of the Rings" in 1988? Apparently, Howard Shore doesn't have monopoly on LotR music :D

Here is one performance: https://www.youtube.com...

It's usually performed by a wind orchestra, as this is how it was arranged originally, but I've also heard arrangements involving strings as well, although I didn't enjoy them as much.
