I'm personally looking for genius sorts of classical music, like Howard Shore makes.

And I don't mean "soothing" and "calm" as in "making one fall asleep."

I'm looking for compositions that make you feel...safe. Comfortable. Perhaps even loved, but gently.


Vocals are appreciated, but not in the powerful operatic style. So I guess sort of modern compositions would contain what I'm looking for.

Example: Howard Shore - Into the West

Chopin - Prelude no. 15 will be the best piece you've ever heard. Prefferably performed by Idil Biret.

Don't bother with classical music its all unimaginative, low E-string riding crap with drums that replicate jackhammers. OK???
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Bach's cello suites will have something along those lines.

Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings

My friend just showed me this.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

I'd go for Rachmaninoff's rhapsody on a theme of Paganini, Copeland's "Appalachian spring", and second Barber's adagio for strings and the Bach Cello Suites. and maybe some Vaughan Williams, ie "the lark ascending"

Pavane by Faure is a beautiful piece.

Also pretty much anything by Einaudi.
#20
Yeah, Einaudi has the mood you're looking for, as do Arvo Part's choral works...and Bruckner's motets too (Locus Iste is one of the most beautiful choral pieces I've heard)
Ceci n'est pas une signature

Les Berceaux by Faure (The Cradles)
O Nata Lux by Lauridsen
The Faure piece is a bit more on the depressing side, but my favorite of the two.
#26
Hey, i don't know if this is what you want, but either way it's really good music. It's the string quartet. There are a bunch of classical versions of rock/metal and such. It's very niiiice, and is quite soothing as you can most likely pick up on what song it is. Let me know if this is what you are looking for, and I can get you a list of some artists that there are covers of.

I'll join in on the general Chopin suggestions, everything he ever made makes me feel so... calm. At peace, sort of.

Wow you are such a dumbass...


...there's no low open E string in classical music.

...modes and scales are still useless.
