Very nice. 

 

I only dabble with classical here and there. I used to blast these in work which is really nice. If you like piano..

Good to have a dedicated topic. Worth mentioning that your first video is not Mozart's Requiem in its entirety, but excerpts; the Dies Iræ, Rex Tremendæ, and Lacrimosa movements. Can't remember the name of the last movement. 

 

On the topic of that composition, the crescendo on "judicandus homo reus" in "Lacrimosa" is amazing, and brings me the chills every single time. I remember performing the entire Requiem in a big church, and its effect was simply unfathomable. It went as if automatic, I barely ever glanced at the sheets. This sort of music does something to you.

Thanks for mentioning! I will post the full composition.

Good topic, man! Classical music was pretty much my life some years ago, so I'd like to share with you one of my favourite pieces (I'm assuming we're not taking the 'classical' definition strictly)


Tárrega's compositions have always spoken to me, for some reason. I find that he is unjustly overlooked as a composer.


One of Barrios' sadly underrated gems, played by the man himself. A pity that the recording's quality isn't that great :/

This topic has been inactive, sadly. I felt that I should share these:

Very elegant interpretation.


My favourite Nocturne. Not exactly classical, but I think it's fitting.

My favorite composer is Antonio Vivaldi. He had the sickest beats.

My favorite composer is Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. He was an absolute beast at composing catchy melodies and knew how to create breathtaking orchestrations. Here is one of my favorites. The A section (first two minutes and, I think, last minute and a half) are so full of passion it's impossible not to feel something. If not, I question your humanity. ;)

 

 

And this is my favorite symphony from ANY composer. What makes this symphony unique is that instead of the last movement being a finale, as most composers do, he ends it with a very sad and tragic movement. Apparently he believed that he was writing music about his own death. A few or couple days after the premier of this work he was found dead, presumably suicide. For those unaware, he was homosexual and often struggled dealing with it. In fact, he attempted suicide soon after his first and only marriage.

 

 

Truly a giant of the romantic era.  :^:

My favorite composer is Mozart, his compositions are  jovial, elegant and catchy at the same time. 

 

Can't choose my favorite symphony so here's something to listen to:

Mozart's Requiem is the one that stands out the most for me. There's just something about Dies Iræ and Lacrimosa.

Scarlatti was f*cking incredible.


My favourite Chopin Nocturne. It would be a sin not to post it here.

Amazing music in this topic so far. The Mozart posted by OP is amazing.

 

 

No mention of Elgar so far. A british composer, and probably my favorite. Well known for "Pomp and Circumstance" and "Enigma Variations"

 

This is Enigma Variations. Possibly one of my favorite pieces of music of all time.

 

 

 

 

 

Also I thought I would put this as I have just been writing about acoustic guitars in another topic. Its more modern, early 20th century but I don't know what other category it would fit in. Orchestra and classical guitar. Beautiful music

 

Rodrigo, Concierto de Aranjuez. Movement 2 - Adagio.

The comments section of this ballade is full of anime related stuff, could be worse, they could be there to hate it.

 

 

I suppose someone with knowledge of music theory could explain why those codas are so awesome, but all i can say is; I came.

I really like Chopin. Great music to sit doing work to.

Any Beethoven fans? :p

 

One of my favorites...the music feels like he's enduring such torment...possibly the inevitability of his hearing loss?

A beautiful piece by the unjustly forgotten Russian composer Kalinnikov. A fine example of cyclical composition that also incorporates the minor iv device that was milked to high heaven in the 1950s.
