I'll start it off with :
Ave Maria by Franz Schubert (especially female vocals)
I have a few favourites from Erik Satie:
Pieces Froides - Trois Danses De Travers
These are just my favourite three, but I could pick any Satie piano piece.
Claude Debussy's Etude No. XI pour les Arpeges Composes and Clair De Lune
But possibly the most beautiful piece I've heard so far is Camille Saint-Saens' The Cuckoo in the Heart of the Woods
Gorecki - Symphony No 3 - sad but beautiful
Sibelius - The Swan of Tuonela
Basically any of Chopin's Nocturnes
Nyman - The Piano Concerto
Beethovens moonlight sonata
Anything from The Planets suite by Holst, especially Neptune, The Mystic.
Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries
Famous Beethoven's Famous 9th Symphony
I wouldn't call Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries "beautiful"... epic perhaps but not beautiful... but i do agree on Beethoven's 9th Symphony especially the Ode to Joy part... but here are two more to round off my top 3 at the present time:
Canon in D major for strings and continuo by Johann Pachelbel (the best version is the one conducted by Jean-Francois Paillard)
Etude, Op.10. No.3 in E "Tristesse" by Frederic Chopin (sad but beautiful, about lost love.... it's rumored that Chopin wrote it for a woman he loved in his youth and lost to someone else) << listen to this one and tell me what you think...
Fingal's Cave- Mendelssohn
Debussy - Le Mer
Bach - Brandenburg Concertos
Trying to listen to some of this. Wow, iTunes is being gay as fuck...
Why? what is Itunes doing?
Won't connect and if I do, it won't stream the songs without a very long buffer.
Most def. La Mer!!!!
Also pretty much his entire piano repitoir (sp?)
There are far too many beautiful classical pieces name in a thread.
Hmmmm.... well let me list a few favorites off the top o' me 'ead:
Mozart- Kyrie from C Minor Mass; Concerto for Flute & Harp
Beethoven- Piano Concerto No. 2 adagio; Kyrie from Missa Solemnis
Berlioz- Adagio from Romeo & Juliette
Gorecki- Good Night; Sym. 3
Tchaikovsky- Sym. 6 4th mvmt.
Mahler- Ruckertlieder; Sym. 10 Adagio
Berg- Violin Concerto
Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody On Theme Of Paganini
Werd, this is an ace piece.
Anyone else with their beautiful picks?
Tavener- The Bridegroom
Schubert- Piano Sonata 20
How about we show Youtube clips of some of these? Do you have one of the Canon in D that we like Thoth? ....
