I only noticed one thread involving any of these in a loose form, so I figured it was about time to start one that encompassed all "classical" genres. I'm not really sure what to call them as a whole, since "classical" is a form in itself. But whatever.

Anyway, I don't listen to a lot of classical music because I feel like listening to too much of it would lessen its quality to me. It's like how if you eat too much $500 cake, the cake ends up tasting old and drab in the end. I'm also not exactly a classical genius, but I still love the music.

Right. So post your favourite classical music. Big sleeves and hair are also welcome.

A few of my favourites:

"The Moldau" by Bedřich Smetana Small | Large


"'Little' Fugue in G Minor" by Johann Sebastian Bach Small | Large


"Asturias" by Isaac Albeniz (Orchestral version) Small | Large

I love classical, and like you I typically reserve it for special occasions. For me, music of this caliber needs to be savored in the proper setting - no distractions, and preferably in the evening with a good set of headphones. It's a bit sad to think how hard it is to find such a setting lately. Anyway, these are the pieces of those eras that move me the most:

Frederic Chopin - Nocturne In E Flat Major, Op.9 No.2 Small | Large

A fine example of what a piano is capable of when in skilled hands. Kind of bugs me that it's been used in tv shows and movies, but if it introduces people to Chopin it can't be all bad.

Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 in C Minor (II) Small | Large

Eargasm at 0:56

Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto 1 - B Flat Minor Small | Large



The Lark Ascending - Ralph Vaughan Williams Small | Large

One of my favorite pieces that I've ever had the pleasure of performing.

MAX BRUCH - Violin Concerto No, 1 in G Minor. Op. 26. - SHLOMO MINTZ/Claudio Abbado/Chicago Symphony


EDIT: Holy shit, it's been too long since I've picked up my violin. That might need to happen soon because HOLY SHIT MY VIOLIN NOSTALGIA.

And I fucking love that first movement of the Bruch Concerto HNNNNNNNNNNNNG
