This is a personal favorite:



Virgil Fox

Heavy Organ

That's right...Heavy Organ.

And Virgil did.

Bach's organ works are my go to fave and you can't beat that album.

Get it? Beat that album?



ETA: Apologies. I made a mistake. The Little Fugue is from Fox's Bach: Great Organ Works, not Heavy Organ.

But hey: Heavy Organ:



There is current in our land (and several European countries) at this moment a kind of nitpicking worship of historic impotence. They say that Bach must not be interpreted and that he must have no emotion, that his notes speak for themselves. You want to know what that is? Pure unadulterated rot! Bach has the red blood. He has the communion with the people. He has all of this amazing spirit. And imagine that you could put all the music on one side of the agenda with his great interpretation and great feeling and put the greatest man of all right up on top of a dusty shelf underneath some glass case in a museum and say that he must not be interpreted! They're full of you-know-what and they're so untalented that they have to hide behind this thing because they couldn't get in the house of music any other way!

-Virgil Fox

What I listen to depends on my mood and what I need to get done.

Ah, then you might love Beethoven. Try his Symphony No. 7, especially the first 2 movements. The second movement is sublime. The first movement is absolutely delightful, but you have to make it through the long, slow intro. But it's worth it!

Beethoven's piano sonatas from his middle period are wonderful listening too!

And an easy place to start with program music is Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique. It tells the story of a guy who takes drugs and hallucinates meeting his dream girl and then it goes downhill from there, with the last movement depicting him watching witches dancing at his own funeral.

But just listen to anything you can get your hands on. If you don't immediately like it, move on until you find what you do like! You'll start to notice what styles and periods resonate with you.

Enjoy!

I've got a couple - I like "Epic" classical music. Such as the below.
Dvorak - New World Symphony 4th Movement
Holst - First Suite
Holst - Jupiter
Saint Saens: Carnival of the Animals~Aquarium
Camille Saint-Saëns - Danse Macabre
Toccata and Fugue in Dm
Pines of Rome
Faure - Pavane

I'm also including the below, as this falls close to classical.
Russian Christmas Music
Prayer of St. Gregory
Palladio - Normal
Palladio - Techno Remix

Some of these you probably heard before - but these make turn heads in the car.

Verdi's Four Seasons. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Carl Orff's Carmina Burana.



Excellent choices! Especially for someone who likes Tchaikovsky.

OP - May I also recommend Stravinsky? Here is the Firebird... (Also try Rite of Spring!)

I love Mozart!

OP - La Nozze Di Figaro is quite fun from an opera standpoint - but Opera is a bit of an acquired taste...

WOW. I wasn't expecting such an overwhelmingly positive response! I'm gonna have a LOT to delve into now
I can't tell you guys how much I appreciate this and I more than welcome any further suggestions.

I'm going to be revisiting this thread a lot as my taste develops. For now I'm gonna slowly work my way through all the suggestions so I can compile some stuff I like (as of now) for my MP3 player.

Great stuff

It is amazing when you think about it, the magic created with just 8 notes.

Think about all the music in the entire world. Different in so many ways, yet the same.

Created with 8 simple notes.

I second this motion. Amadeus is as close to a perfect film I've seen. I wouldn't change anything in it, even his annoying laugh.
