Right know I am listening to a 3-minute:22 piece by Barry John, it was from the movie 'Out of Africa' (1986). The best parts come at the 1-minute:48 and 2-minute:14 spots, and then it ends  Sad

Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 15, Op. 27, in c-sharp minor, I. Adagio sostenuto; and Piano Sonata No. 8, Op. 13, in c minor, II. Adagio cantabile.

Chopin's Nocturne in E-flat, Op. 9, No. 2 and Schubert's Standchen (Serenade) from Schwanengesang. Also, Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1 and Scriabin's Etude in c-sharp minor, Op. 2 No. 1.





...and any classical music on Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes.

Mendelsohn's Fingal's Cave from the Hebrides Overture for me. A truly lovely piece.

Otherwise: Finlandia, Nimrod, Adagio for Strings and Bach's Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor all do me just well!

SAS23: You have exemplary taste! I heartily endorse your choices.
Nimrod (from Elgar's Enigma Variations, for those who aren't familiar with this piece) is my number 1 choice.
I just wish it were longer; each time I listen to it, I want it to go on and on and on and on....

Beethoven's 9th Symphony, especially the Ode to joy. I'm not a big fan of classic music, but this is a masterpiece.

I agree with Captain Gomes, Pachelbel's Canon is my favourite.

You haven't heard Flight of the Bumblebee until you've heard it done by a tuba!

I personally can't stand Pachebel's Canon, for personal reasons. I have played it every year since the seventh grade for graduations, ceremonies, and rehearsals. I play the cello and the bass. I have always played that low bass line that goes bummm...bummmmmm...bummmm...bummm....

It gets a little trying on the nerves when you have to play it as a processional for a graduating class of 400 students. You just want to play faster and turn it into a 400 meter dash for the grads. 15 minutes? Bummm...bumm....bumm...

No thanks.

7.7mg: It is actually Sonata -14-, Op27 No2 Adagio Sostenuto. Indeed a very nice piece because after 7 years of playing this piece, I have learned to play this with the utmost grace and beauty. Wonderful song truly truly.
Also thanks to this song, I became a chick magnet for my Junior high school.  Smile (for a limited time period)
Beethoven's Piano Concerto No3 in C is also a peaceful piece.

Debussys "Le Cathedral Engolutie" Meaning" The Sunken Cathedral". Also his other piece: "Le Fille aux cheveux" (Girl with Blond (Flaxated) hair)

Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings (Theme for HOMEWORLD: 1999's game of the year)

Schuberts: Ave Maria is also a soother as well as Moment Musicaux in A-flat major.

Wagners: Evening Star and Tchaichovsky's June Barcrolle.

Oh and the Jurassic Park Theme.

Great movie, Woody Allen's Love and Death. One of my all-time favorite. Also, good choice on Prokofiev's Lt. Kije Suite.

Oops, my bad! For those who don't know, it's popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata.

Clearly, none of you have ever heard Fantasia On A Theme By Thomas Tallis, by Vaughan Williams (known colloquially as "The Tallis Fantasia"). I beg you to download it, buy it, whatever. It will blow your mind, that's a Cedarjet Guarantee.

Also a lot of Aaron Copland's stuff, Appalachian Spring etc. Who says Americans haven't got any culture?

Years ago I worked for a SoundWharehouse in Dallas, Texas that just happened to specialize in Classical music. Believe it or not I had a wonderful time working there and had the opportunity to listen to hundreds of different pieces with Pachalbel's Cannon and Vivaldi's Four Seasons being my favorite. One of the funniest things to happen was when a middle aged woman (me being 18 at the time) came in and tried to order a CD. She knew how the music went, and was sure it was by the Composer "Taco Bell." Can't make that up, got her fixed up and on her way.

Another CD that I listen too regurlarly is the Fantasia Soundtrack, loaded with excellent pieces, though Right of Spring usually gets skipped, brings me down.

Regards,

James
