The title says it all. What are your favorite classical music composers, symphonies, or other works?

I think mine has to be Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

Though this is a good one also:

It is Brahms Symphony No. 3 In F Major, Op. 90: 3 - Poco Allegretto. It's melody is actually used in Carlos Santana F. Dave Matthews - Love of my Life.

This one is one of my favorites:

Bruckner Symphony No. 9 - II. Scherzo. Bewegt, Lebhaft-Trio (Herbert von Karajan with Berliner Philharmoniker). Embedding was disabled, so... My favorite part starts at 0:48 into the video.

Here's another great one:

Elgar - Nimrod (from "Enigma Variations") (Barenboim)

More classical videos can be found here

I'm a big fan of John Dowland.

Semper Dowland, semper dolens.

Well there is lots of great Classical music out there.

Franz Liszt -
Dante Symphony - Finale. Purgatorio - Magnificat
Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

George Frederic Handel -
Messiah. I recomend this piece in its entirety. Although you will recognize certain movements within the piece such as the Hallelujah Chorus.

Richard Wagner -
Tannhauser - Die Pilger sind's (Pilgrims Chorus)
Tristan und Isolde - Liebestod

Antonin Dvorak -
Sympony No. 7 in D-minor. Third Movement.
New World Symphony

i like edgar varese' a lot. got into him after reading about zappa liking him. lots of dense percussion going on in there.

fur elise is beautiful though.

I've always like to knock the dust off of my speakers with The Planets by Holst. Not a hidden gem or anything but, I think one of the all time greats.

Here's a goody

Well, that didn't work for some reason so you have to click the link to hear it.

Planets Holst! It goes away for a while then comes back like you're hearing it for the first time.

Faure's Requiem

Check out theInternational Music Score Library Project public domain music scores.

Experiment with composing! I have used these people's (Myriad) composer software for a few years now, the free is fully functional.
