Hello,

Can anybody give me some famous/essential organ works or maybe piano from the masters like Bach and Chopin Tchai etc..

For example Bach's organ works entertain me, where as his ones with other instruments bore me.

Thanks.

Ludovico Einaudi or something and the song's called Le Onde. Absolute magic. It's so nice to listen to, make sure you check it out

Bach's Toccata and Fugue in Dm, best piece ever
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

JS Bach, Well Tempered Clavier I & II
JS Bach, Goldberg Variations
JS Bach, Keyboard Partitas
JS Bach, Organ Fugue in G minor BWV578
JS Bach, Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV542

Find Glenn Gould recordings if you can.

...modes and scales are still useless.

I don't think this counts as Bach or Beethoven...

But the organ Steve Winwood plays in Gimmie Some Loving is pretty badass.

Not classical, but Max Richter rocks. (did the stuff for Shutter Island.)

thread needs more chopin love

The thing about Chopin is that litterally 99.9% of what he wrote is piano stuff. So to say "recommend me something Chopin that is on the piano" is like saying "recommend me something by Descartes that I can think about," you can do that with all of his stuff lol.

If you're looking for more modern stuff, check out Jerry Martin and Marc Russo (famous for their Sims compositions). If you're looking for feeling you might be interested in Tenmon. While the latter isn't necessarily famous, the first definitely is. Though neither is essential. For essential stuff, check out some Gershwin or any Chopin.
