Fine choices, Diemen

I love Beethoven too. Beethovens symphonies! And his life...

I love him more than Mozart. I like some Mozart, but I think most of his operas are boring. The Requiem is very special though. And he wrote many pieces I like, too.

Ill add some by:

Christoph Willibald Gluck - Orfeo ed Euridice

Georg Friedrich Hndel - The Music of the Royal Fireworks, Water Music, Messiah

Joseph Haydn - The Creation, and especially for Gickies Gageeze: Symphony No. 82, "The Bear"

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Sonatas for Piano and Violin KV 379 (373a), KV 454

Franz Schubert - Symphony Nr. 7 (b flat) D 759

Bedrich Smetana - Ma Vlst

Igor Strawinsky - Le Sacre du Printemps

Peter Ilyich Tchaikowsky - Swan Lake

Johann Strauss - The Blue Danube

Sergey Prokofiev- Romeo and Juliet (ballet)

Claude Debussy - La Mer

Richard Wagner - Lohengrin, Tristan and Isolde, Parsifal

Johannes Brahms - Requiem

Schubert: Impromptus.

Better pick than "Fr Elise".

I played both, though a long, long time ago...

I like so many that I don't even know the names of

Four Seasons
Pachebel's Canon
Ravel-Bolero

And especially ANY classical piece played by Yo Yo Ma-one of my favorites is Bach, cello suite # 1. I saw him at the symphony last week, and got to meet him briefly at a reception afterwards. What a sweet, humble, down to earth man. Some of those classical musicians can be a bit snooty

The sound he makes w/ that cello just floors me, it's so gorgeous

Maybe it's because I'm a pianist and I've heard way too many students play it.

I can't believe I forgot the Schubert Impromptus - good catch, hiphop. Also, Stravinsky's Rite of Spring is excellent, as is Petrouchka.

One of the best opera authorities has died.

Rest in Peace, Marcel Prawy.

W.A. Mozart's requiem mass is sublime.
