    What are yours?

    Here is my number one. Overplayed but excellent nonetheless (which is why it is overplayed)

    I like the Pilgrim's Chorus

    Saint-saens 3rd (especially the 2nd and 4th movemnents)

    Faure's Pavane

    Cyber Bird b Takshi Yoshimatsu

    Chopin's Etude No.3

    Allegri's Miserere

    Vivaldi's Winter

    Tailleferre's Vocalise for High Voice

    Ravel's Jeux D'Eau

    Penderecki's Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima

    And I'll just admit it: I like Rhapsody in Blue too...:frown:

    This is playful.


    This is satirical funny.

    I like that Classical Music isn't all just for drama and droll, but also had it's own lighthearted moments that went down in history. - There's a place in Soho that has a plaque that says Mozart once performed there on Old Compton Street, I was like 'wow' - 'Apparently he played all over Europe' but, Mozart played Soho. - 'a little bit of wow still'.

    Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" is a favorite. The CD Conducted by Felix Slatkin of the
    Hollywood Bowl Symphony is one of the best versions.

    Pagnini was once asked to produce his birth certificate to prove he wasn't the son of the Devil he played so well.
    ...
    He also purposely tuned a string too tight so that it broke whilst he was performing, and finish his shows on the remaining strings.

    I'm partial to the Etudes (Chopin).

    And for no-brainer classical, Vivaldi, Pyotr Ilyich, Wolfgang, Ludwig, etc.

    Can't stand Strauss. Oompah!
