Bach - Fantasia and Fugue in G Minor (Great G Minor)

Mahler's 2,3,5,8 symphonies are really good too. Any of the planets by Holst are good(mars is still my favorite).

Honestly I know tons more but don't feel like writing it out.

I played Classical for a couple years before moving to acoustic and such. One of my favorite songs that I played was Wilsons Wilde. It is a Renissance piece. I just really liked the sound of it. And if u want complex. Ghiribizzo by Paginini has a ton of fast sliding. Then Waltz from Sonata #9 by Paginini is VERY complex. It takes a lot of finger work.

One of my absolute favourite pieces is Bach's clavier concerto no. 1, which I think you should check out, even if you know a little Bach. I managed to find my favourite recording (Angela Hewitt) of it on youtube too

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HY3TcklLfug

Nevermind the weird video, it was the only one I could find with that particular recording. Only the 1st movement of 3, but if you like it you can probably find the other movements on youtube.


If you want complex, you can check out bachs Kunst der Fuge too.

Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is gorgeous, one of my current favourites. So is Schubert's Trio for Piano, Violin and Cello. Those along with endless Chopin and Schubert piano pieces are my favourites recently. Oh, and Honegger's Third Symphony.

Beethoven - Symphony No. 7, 2nd movement


Yes! Duum, dum dum, duuuum dummm. It's somehow really dark but uplifting. I love how that's the soundtrack to some of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe episodes.

I remember you enjoying it last time I posted it in a classical music thread here. I plug it everywhere I go.

The first of Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances is my favourite piece of music right now. Listen to that.

I had to play a song by bach called Concerto for two violins in D minor (why do all classical pieces have boring names?) and I actually liked the song a lot...very intricately woven parts that make it difficult to master rhythmically--challenging/fun stuff

From my post in "the classical thread:"


My must listen to list (that most of you have probably already heard):
Beethoven symphonies 3, 5, 6, 7, 9
Beethoven piano sonatas 8, 14, 17, 21, 23, 32
Beethoven piano concerto no 5, and violin concerto
Beethoven string quartet no. 14
Mozart symphonies no. 25, 29, 40, 41
Mozart divertimento
Mendelssohn violin concerto in Em
Tchaikovsky symphony no. 6
Tchaikovsky violin concerto

If you're just now beginning to listen to classical, I'd say start with the Mendelssohn violin concerto in Em. It will be new (you haven't heard it before), but it is an excellent piece, and not too hard to understand and get into.
