My answer is probably a tad stereotypical, and is this even considered classical?

YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

I adore this suite.

Yes it is classical. My favorite version is the one by Dutoit. I love how the "Jupiter" sequence sounds like every movie score stole from it.

If you haven't heard it yet I recommend the La Mer from this release:



The pines of rome and fountains of rome is great too.

Hey, it's not stereotypical when it is the pinnacle of classical music. The Planets truly are among the greatest works of art ever created.

I adore the music of Vaughan Williams:

YouTube - Vaughan Williams: A sea symphony - Behold, The Sea Itself.

Cori already posted a work by Faure but I thought this work deserved mention.

YouTube - Gabriel FAURE': Pavane, Op. 50 - Paintings By "CLAUDE MONET"

And Stravinsky deserves mention as well.

YouTube - Igor Stravinsky conducts final of Firebird

Thanks for this. I recognize the melody but didn't know who did it. I've got collection of his Barcarolles which are great.

I also like Satie:

YouTube - Erik Satie - Gymnopédie No.1

I love Yo Yo Ma. I've seen him play in person a couple of times and it just made me cry.
