This doesnt count as classical music, but ill post anyway. The Remake of Sigur Ros' Flugufrelsarinn by the Kronos Quartet. They came to my college and played a bunch of wonderfull pieces but the Sigur Ros cover blew me away, almost had me and my friend in tears. The room was just pitch black with a slight blue/green glow from the bottom of the stage (just to give the setting) haha, enjoy!

EDIT: Here's Glenn Gould's performance of the Hindemith movement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vx8CjKLm6HM

I find it to be too staccato, but it's still a great performance.

Gustav Mahler - Piano quartet in A Minor


You might recognize it from Shutter Island.


Not technically classical, but whatever.

I'm pretty sure he meant "classical" in the sense of "Western art music" instead of "music from the Classical period." He posted a Chopin piece, too, which is also from the Romantic period, albeit early Romantic instead of late Romantic, like Mahler.

True. Actually I think the term "classical" is thrown around more often when being used as "western art music" than when talkinga bout the classical period.

This is also another cool piece, one of the most haunting pieces i've ever heard although it's 20th century classical. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dPDO3Tfab0

Edit: Nocturne 9 2 is another one of my favs. Chopin was really amazing, it's like he could make you feel what he was going through with his piano.

Tchaikovsky's 6th has the rather remarkable distinction of being one of the very few pieces of music that can actually make me cry. I felt some tears welling up while listening to the recording of "La fille aux cheveux de lin" I posted here, though. It's probably the best version of it I've heard.

I love Adagio for Strings. The choral version, a setting for "Agnus Dei," is even more haunting. They're both great in their own way, though.

That one really is beautiful. I would posted that one if I could have gotten my mind off of Mahler.

I love this one. A guy at my school always brings his cello and I always ask him to play this.



I would kill to have the time/talent to play the cello

I think it's the most beautiful sounding instrument.

Quote by MakinLattes
it pulls at my heartstrings. I'd learn the cello solely to play this.



Me too. I almost decided to learn cello instead of guitar, but I figured Guitar would be easier.

Turns out Bach doesn't sound as good on a guitar.

The fugue in Tocatta and Fugue in D minor by Bach
Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven, I particularly like the 2nd movement/development in it.

That one is okay. As cliche as it sounds, this is by far my favorite Bach-on-guitar piece.

Especially between 3:44 and 3:53. It's one of the most difficult Bach pieces to play on guitar, and John Williams plays it better than anyone else in my opinion.

I love those two pieces too.
But i'll have to say Violin Concerto in A minor, BWV 1041 by Bach, the allegro assai movement. Plus i play it on the violin, and it's just lovely to play.

^ I like the 1st movement even more then the 3rd.

As much as the speed of the 3rd movement amazes you and gets the blooding flowing through your veins, the 1st movements modest tempo is haunting and sends you into a trance.
