Favorite Classical Pieces

Name some of your favorite classical/orchestral pieces.
These can be pieces that were recently composed.
For example, in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, a couple of my favorite classical/orchestral pieces are the scenes where Ginny kisses Harry and where Professor Slughorn tells Harry about his mother during the time that she died.

Or you can refer to classical pieces like Night on Bald Mountain or even 12 Etudes, Op.10 No.4 in C sharp minor by Frederic Chopin.

Two of my favourite pieces are:

- Samuel Barber's Adagio for strings
- Ghostland - Interview With The Angel

Both very moving pieces.

I'm also a big fan of Philip Glass and his work. Forgot to mention that.

Pruit Igoe is another of my favourite pieces and should have been on the list.

I don't go out of my way for classical, but I listen now and then to Bach's Sheep May Safely Graze and recently sat down for a visit with old friend Peter and the Wolf.

It's a piano piece, but I've always liked Beethoven's Fur Elise. It sounds so lonely, and then it kinda parties, but it only really has a good time for a short while, and then freaks out a bit, before going back to being lonely until it passes out.

These are probably the ones that I listen to the most.

- Handel's Water Music (Andante. Apparently there's more than one "Andante" movement. The piece confuses me... But there are a lot of other great movements too.)
- Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A Major. (Adagio and Allegro)
- Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major. (Adagio)
- Weber's Bassoon Concerto in F Major. (All movements.)
- Vivaldi's Bassoon Concerto in E Minor. (Allegro Poco)
- Marcello's Oboe Concerto in D Minor (All movements)
- Vivaldi's Oboe Sonata in C Minor (Forgot the movement. XD I think Adagio.)
- Vivaldi's Sonata for Oboe and Bassoc Continuo in G Minor (Adagio)
- Vivaldi's Four Seasons (Summer and Spring are my favorites... Which is hilariously ironic since those are my two least favorite seasons.)
- Handel's Organ Concerto in D Minor (Adagio)
- Chopin's Etude No. 10 No. 3 "Tristesse"
- Samuel Barber's Adagio For Strings
- Dvorak's New World Symphony (Largo)
- Dimitry Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2 In F Major (Andante)
- Ravel's Introduction and Allegro for Harp, Clarinet, and String Quartet

For more recent stuff... I really like the anime One Piece's background music. A lot of it is very orchestral. And some of it is really pretty. Best background music ever, I say!

The thing with classical music is I can never remember the damn composers and piece names. They're usually long and have numbers and crap in them. So I like the music when I listen on the radio, but no idea what any of it is called. Though like Tuck, I do love Peter and the Wolf. :D And I love the Final Fantasy soundtrack as well.
