In terms of Classical music, I've always liked Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue. As a kid, our family always flew United. I always remember walking through the tunnel connecting both parts of Terminal 1 at ORD. Rhapsody in Blue was always playing. To this day I still love the song.

I really do like Gershwin's Concerto in F. The Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.2 is beautiful, even if the second movement is now treated as a bit of a cliché (no thanks, I'm sure, to Eric Carmen) - I feel the Moderato and Allegro Scherzando are actually better; I have a record of Rachmaninov performing it, and I have to say when I first heard it I was surprised at how quickly he took all the movements. There's a lot of good stuff in the music of Elgar, and despite being largely ignored there are some fantastic moments in "The Apostles". Brahms' German Requiem has some beautiful passages too.

There's a lot of sacred choral music which I haven't even touched upon here which has some eerily beautiful passages. I don't know whether anyone else has an interest in that, so I won't go into that.

Agree with those who like 'Rhapsody in Blue' - a true classic.

My all-time favourite will always be Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 though. If only because I took my future wife to a concert featuring it and we got engaged the same evening....  . So quiet, delicate, lyrical......very 'UN-Beethoven' really........

pachebel's cannon in D is by far the best. I'm not sure what it is about it, but it is just great. There is only one thing i want at my wedding(besides the wife of course) and that is the have cannon in D played while she walks down the aisle. My wife can do anything else she damn well pleases, but this song has to be played.



And here is a comedian talking about. nice find on youtube. So true about cellos in orchestra.

As far as classical music goes, my favorite for long has been Schuhmann's concerto for orchestra and piano in a-minor.

My sister used to like her when I was a kid. Good to know she is still around. There was a very popular one by her that made it to the UK charts in the 80's. Cant remember the title.
