Mine would be Shubert's "Ave maria" (D. 832, Op. 52, #6 for you purists out there)

I share in hopes that others will share their favorites, and I might discover something new to me.

AMAZON.  Got the albums, downloadable onto a Kindle.

And you aren't dealing with "The House of Mouse."

I prefer Night on Disco Mountain.

I may have to play this sweetmeat on my show.

Beethoven Symphony #9
Carl Nielsen - Symphony #4
Mahler's Symphony #3
Shostakovich's Symphony #7
Smetana's The Moldau(Ma Vlast)
Wagner - Siegfried Idyll

I know, I know some aren't actually 'classical'.

 

Pachelbel's Canon in D. When we had it played at our Wedding 20 years ago it was not as ubiquitous as it is now.

Mozart's Requiem conducted by Karl Bohm.

At the moment:

Mozart - Piano Sonata No. 11 in A Major, K. 331
Gounod and Bach - Ave Maria

Fratres IS very nice. A bit frantic at the start, but I suppose that's the intent. As for symphonies - I suppose they are a bit boring, but the structure was probably helpful before recorded music was available - an audience member knew what to expect and could plan their evening of listening accordingly. I like the sonatas... Thanks for posting!

"The Young Prince and Young Princess" by Rimsky-Korsakov

and

"Standchen" by Franz Schubert

Mozart Concerto 622 is my absolute favorite, out of many.

It's a lovely romp between a clarinet and orchestra, so simple, almost childlike in its joy. The middle piece is a lullaby from heaven, gets me right there.

For me personally the piece brings back fond memories of being back in my mid-twenties, living without a care in my own little world.

the Brandenburg Concertos

Samuel Barber's Agnus Dei

One time in college there was a tornado watch and I just happened to be in the music building at the time that the acapella choir was working on the piece. We were all sent to the blackbox theater in the basement where I got a practically private concert. Beautiful.

Oh my.

So many to choose from.

Beethoven, Symphony #5, Vivaldi, The Four Seasons, Strauss, The Blue Danube.

Those lead my list.  Now if I could only get my old iPod back from my daughter...
