    In A Fool's Paradise, I kinda see it, kinda don't. Thats just me. Is it supposed to be the double lead part or just the solos?

    I can't hear much of Summer in Inferno...is it talking about the intro part of the song? And also, I did hear something about Masquerade being a classical song, too....anyone know which one?

    Probably '98. It seems like something that would be classical.

    Right after the keyboard solo, that whole baroque-sounding section. If you listen to the right part of the Bach piece, it's there note for note, both the backing and the solo. Complete with the huge arpeggios at the end.

    I can't wait, the use of classical quotes is one of my favorite things about SX.

    Sweet...I got the right one! Just picked up Mass in B Minor by Bach, trying to find it by memory. Gonna track down some of this other stuff eventually...

    (And I totally agree with those saying this thread ought to be a sticky.)

    I still don't hear Inferno in summer. It's Phrygian and a pedal point on V, nothing really unique.

    OK, I just got to hear Bach's Mass in B Minor for the first time, and I've got a question. I could tell that the initial chorus from DWoT came from the "Confiteor" section, but I only recognized the slow, a cappella section. So that raises the question, were the first few measures of the DWoT version written by SymX and then it goes into Bach, or is it all from the Mass and I just didn't put 2 and 2 together?

    I listened to Bachs' BWV 847 "by accident" and then noticed it was already listed here -_-... well, if you listen to it long enough, it also has a part from Out of the Ashes intro, a little clip from 0:22->. This part is around 0:50 in the MIDI. http://www.piano-midi.de/midis/bach/bach_847.mid

    Maybe you, Luis, can include this in your list next time you post this in these forums ;)

    Beethoven's Sonata Opus 13, movement 1 is pretty badass. I'm kinda thinking about doing a Metal version on guitars and keyboard.

    Who composed the Turkish March? Was it Mozart?

    Very interesting, thanks for this thread ;)

    I had already noticed about half of them; I'll have to listen to the other classical pieces again as well (got them all in my cd collection).
