RE: What's your favorite classical music?
I think some of the best modern contemporary classical music is on film soundtracks.
The soundtrack for 'Perfume - The Story of a Murderer' is majestic.
The movie itself is a personal favourite of mine, also a lot of 'artsy' women have read the novel it's based on (Das Parfum), particularly German girls, as the original novel is in German.
'Das Parfum game' has worked wonders for me with hipster/artsy girls.
Whether as a Hail Mary to rescue a flagging set or as something to casually drop into a conversation about books/films/music you love, watch the girl's eyes light up.

Giuseppe Verdi drops a dose of red pill with "La donna e mobile (The woman is fickle)," also one of the most catchy tunes of classical:

Modest Mussorgsky. Heard his song "Midnight on Bald Mountain" when I watched Fantasia as a kid (I'm 23 now). Had my parents buy me a CD of his stuff at age 9. He's a Russian master, in my book.

Check out Gould playing Bach's 1st Piano Concerto. There's that ominous part where the music starts drowning and getting progressively softer over the period of around 30 seconds, then explodes into the finale. One of the greatest passages in all music.

Very subtle of you to mention that piece and pianist and not mention that the most famous recordings were done under the baton of the man whose name you took for your forum username.

RE: What's your favorite classical music?
Bernstein was the monarch of classical music. Mostly anything worth watching had him at the podium. He chose who made it and who didn't. He alone was responsible for reviving the music of Gustav Mahler after a long period of neglect. Even after achieving worldwide fame for composing the music of West Side Story, it meant nothing to him, and chose to be buried with a score of Mahler's 5th on his chest.

He was the most eloquent man ever put down on record. He could speak about paint drying on the wall and make it sound like the most fascinating thing in the world. Listening to him speak was almost a greater pleasure than listening to him conduct.

One of the great American geniuses. He came from an era that produced true cultural icons, men who lived and died for their professions, who gave their blood and sweat for perfection. Long gone are those great men.

Bach's Brandenberg Concertos, horn and trumpet concertos but gun to my head my stranded atoll piece would be ironically be The Four Seasons by Vivaldi.

Video RE: What's your favorite classical music?
Shostakovich's work needs a bump here. My favorite is the Seventh symphony, partially because I'm a history buff. After his volunteer enlistment into the Soviet infantry was rejected due to his terrible eyesight, Shostakovich wrote this symphony to represent the bitter resistance of his home city of Leningrad against the German invaders. For its Leningrad radio premiere, Karl Eliasberg, the conductor of the Leningrad symphony, had to run around the city dodging Nazi artillery fire and bombs looking for anyone who could play an instrument since all but 14 members of his orchestra had been killed.

After seeing "Eyes Wide Shut," I find this tune pops in my head from time-to-time:

(Dmitri Shostakovich - Waltz No. 2)

I don't think this will get a lot of popular support here, but lately I've been obsessed with the sacred works of Palestrina, a 16th century choral composer.

Even as an atheist, I find his work, and the work of his contemporaries, to be deeply moving and full of humanist spirit.

Upon entering a cathedral, smelling the incense, watching the flickering of the candles, and listening to this divinely man-made music, how could one not be a true believer?

I think you'll like this, it's breathtakingly beautiful

RE: What's your favorite classical music?
With the possible exception of the violin, the piano is arguably the greatest solo instrument. It is the instrument where the higest levels of performance are found, with the largest repertoire of works by the great composers.

Here's Yuja Wang in an encore performance of Bizet/Carmen variations.




Here's a just-the-highlights reel of virtuostic, romantic literature for the piano. A lot of Chopin and Rachmaninoff. I'm partial to the finale of the Prokofiev Concerto at 3:58. I'm not sure what the chick at 1:45 is doing with her body, like she's fighting with the instrument





Here's Daniil Trifonov in a tasteful interpretation of the Chopin Etudes (Opus 25).




Classical music represents one of the great artistic traditions of western civilization. When someone extols the accomplishments of other cultures, just ask: where is their classical music, their great composers?
