    I'm looking for some recommendations for classical music. Stuff I have that I like: O Fortuna, Vivaldi's four seasons.

    I like what I've heard by Beethoven, but wouldn't really know where to start if I actually wanted to get some of his better stuffs.

    What have you heard from Beethoven? if you have not listened to the Ninth Symphony, I highly reccomend it. It's my favorite classical work.

    Also you'd probably like Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik

    That's part of the problem, I honestly don't know.

    But thanks for the recommendations


    EDIT: I didn't remember to mention this in my first post, but if you happen to know of any modernizations of Classical music (like Canon Rock) I'd like to know about those too.

    Yeah. Problem with classic music is that the titles are so hard to know.

    Let's see...

    Poet and the Peasant Overture by Franz van something..

    Haha becca, you jesus'd this thread big time (almost 10 months after). Still looking for recommendations, Mal? I love both of the songs you listed above. I'm sure you already have Canon in D. :)

    Anyway, off the top of my head I pick Air on the G String by Bach, Ode to Joy (Beethoven), Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (rachmaninoff), The Seasons (Haydn), Hallelujah Chorus (Handel), Sull Aria and Voi Che Sapete (Nozze di Figaro, Mozart), Barcarolle (Les Contes d'Hoffman, Offenbach)....ugh so many more.

    It also depends if you any particular preference with instrumentation.
