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.

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...

Gustav Holst - Mars, the bringer of war

Possibly the most metal piece of classical music

Know little about classical music, but I love Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," Ravel's "Bolero," Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," Schubert's "Death and the Maiden," and Bedrich Smetanau's "Thee Moldau."  It is just amazing that someone can writer an expressive melody like "Ave Maria," sheer genius and a real gift to the world.

Handel's Water Music. I think I lived in the 18th century in a former life.

Timaso Albinoni Adagio in G minor

I need to use  the "Use Old Embed Code" option. My first link didn't have it so let's try this one:

Mine, as cliche as it is to say, is Beethovens' 9th the "Ode to Joy". 

Hey, that's why they call 'em classics! Can't go wrong with Canon In D Major, either

Honorable mention:

 It's only 4 minutes long, but the brief opera set to Dante Allegaris' Vide Cor Meum, written by Hans Zimmer for the movie Hannibal. I think it is an absolutely beautiful, haunting piece that is both ethereal, ghostly and incredibly romantic. 

Beethoven's "Fur Elise" 

 

As well, I'll sometimes have the TV on Galaxie's "Baroque" channel, but I don't always catch the title and composer.
