  • Classical music suggestions

    Can I get some suggestions for classical music? I have a lot of the happier classical music, and quite a bit of the very popular music, but I'm interested in adding darker classical. For example, Moonlight Sonata or Hungarian Rhapsody #2 by Franz Liszt. Any suggestions?

          Mahler's Symphony No. 5, particularly the Adagietto from movement four.

              Also Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings - you'll know it from the movie Platoon - it's one of the first pieces I heard performed live (by the St. Louis Philharmonic, no less) and it's an amazing, haunting piece.

                Thank you. That is a great suggestion. So far, I've been listening to a lot of Chopin and Liszt samples.

                  Bartok String Quartets

                  Really any Bartok is excellent - Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste

                  Love the middle (7-11) or late (12-16) Beethoven String quartets as well.

                  I'm fond of string chamber music, though

                      I'm a big fan of Mahler's stuff. Symphony Nos. 5 and 7 were by far his best stuff, IMO.

                      You don't get to hear hear Mahler performed live very often because he wrote so big - most of his symphonies require 100 or more performers, including in one case a guitar and banjo. If you get the chance to go to a performance of one of his pieces, do it. It'll blow you away.

                        I've added these to my collection so far:

                        Symphony #4, Fourth Movement by Gustav Mahler
                        Hungarian Rhapsody #2 by Franz Liszt
                        Nocturne in B Flat Minor Op 9 #1 by Chopin
                        Danse Macabre by Saint Saens
                        Adagio for Strings by Samuel Barber
                        Symphony #4 in A minor Op 63 by Jean Sibelius

                        Keep the suggestions coming. I plan to download 75 songs today.

                              Serio and Odair Assad Play Piazzolla.

                              Brazillian brothers who are among the best (if not the best) classical guitar duos in the world.

                              If you get a single piece, get the Assads playing the Tango Suite by Astor Piazolla.
