Symphony No.3 in C minor for organ and orchestra by Camille Saint-Saens. The organ passages in the final movement are pure power and rival anything JSB ever wrote. And that's some praise for a Frenchman coming from a Brit. Also the piano concerto no.2 in F by Dmitri Shostakovich is superb.

As a Classical Bassist, Violinist, and a fellow composer, I have to say my all time favorite composer is Mozart. I have an extensive collection of music though...mostly baroque and classical *my favorite periods*..My other favorite composers are Haydn, Salieri, Handel, Telemann, and Bach.
My all tiem favorite pieces *not in any order* are...
-Mozart - 4th Violin Concerto
-Mozart - Symphony No. 41
-Telemann - Viola Concerto in G
-Handel - Messiah
-Mozart - Divertimento in D and in F *my favorite recording of them is by Ensemble Wien*
-Dragonetti's Bass concerto in A *my favorite piece to perform hehe*
