Not for any terribly pressing reasons, i just found myself obsessed with Waltz's now, specifically Tchaikovsky's 'Waltz of the Flowers' from the Nutcracker. So what i'm lookin for is some other good Waltz's from classical artists, i searched limewire for a generic 'waltz' under different composers, and nothing was really found.
If you could, i'd appreciate some good solid waltz suggestions with the proper names, cheers!

The Blue Danube Waltz by Strauss seems to be a popular one. Also, try the Minute Waltz by Chopin, Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, and Ravel's Valses Nobles et Sentimentales. I too enjoy classical waltzes.

I hate people like you. Comments like these are the number one reason why the pit sucks.

Another good Tchaikovsky waltz is the second movement of Tchaikovsky's Serenade in C for string orchestra. Brahms also wrote some noteable waltz.

Another style that is similar to the waltz is the mazurkas, which Chopin was know for. There are several distinct forms of waltz. There's waltz for ballroom dancing and as art songs (like Tchaikovsky's and Haydn's), and there's waltz as serious composition (like Chopin's).

Normally I'm not one to give a link to wiki but I thought it would help you. I learned a lot from the article and a list of composers is at the bottom.
