These some of my favorites.

Pachelbel's
Cannon in d Minor

Wagner's
The Flying Dutchman Overture

Ravel's
Bolero

One of my favorite modern composers: Nobuo Uematsu
Aeris' Theme

I remember the first time I heard this. I was about to hit start on the game, but just ended up sitting there listening to the music. To this day it still gives me chills.
Final Fantasy

Just two examples, but there are many more. And now for some Clint Mansell
Lux Aeterna

I highly recommend checking out games and movies for some the best modern composers. So many powerful and moving pieces out there.

I absolutely love Nobuo Uematsu's work! Music composed for video game's soundtrack's is very under rated in general...which is a shame considering the amount of talent and musical genius in the gaming world.

I felt the same when I played FFVII


I love the two you posted....a couple more of his I like....


From Final Fantasy X - To Zanarkand




And I cannot discuss Nobuo Uematsu without mentioning One Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII!




A concert based on Nobuo Uematsu's composition's with music from Final Fantasy VI, VII and X will be played in London next month by London Symphony Orchestra. It's the first time that the London Symphony Orchestra will have performed a live concert of video game music. I'm delighted that his work and the recognition of music from the gaming industry will be honoured in this way.....but they sold out of ticket's month's ago

Thanks alot. I love Ravel's Bolero and Nobuo Uematsu's music. FF 7 was my favorite game ive ever played, and fell in love with his music from there.

Still computer generated, but orchestral sounding ff7 soundtrack

From the French opera "Lakme"
A beautiful song about picking flowers...

"In order to be protected by Ganesh
Let us go to the pond
Where swans with wings of snow joyfully play
And pick blue lotuses."

You are quite welcome. I'm not ashamed to admit that I got a bit misty eyed listening to those.

Here's another good one from a film that was a great historical fiction. Michael Kamen's
An American Symphony

I've been a fan of Edvard Grieg ever since I heard...
Into the Hall of the Mountain King

Another game music composer that stands out for me is Yasunori Mitsuda. Here is his opening for Chrono Cross.
Scars of Time

This next one is a classic composer, but I was introduced to him through the movie 'The Hunt For Red October.' To my knowledge his music isn't in the film at all, but his name was mentioned and I was curious. When I found him I was more then surprised, it was different and experimental, I wasn't sure what to think, but it was kinda cool. Here's the first piece I heard by him. Niccolo Paganini's
Caprice No. 1 and 2

3rd violinc. mvt3

@imafungi

Thanks fungi. I like Chopin (tandandandan...). So, that's Nocturne. Thank you.



Not much to add right now. Please wait. GTG, but will BRB. Hopefully with some classics.

J. S. Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D minor



Great thread, OP. "Cloud sharing" at its best. Lots of excellent selections by other commenters. Got me re-acquainted with some nearly forgotten old favorites.



Best while listened to in a Rollerball stadium right before a limited-substitutions and no time-limit game.
