    Mine would have to be O Fortuna from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff

    I'm also a big fan of "The Rite of Spring" by Igor Stravinsky

    My favourite is Swan lake. I can still see myself doing my homework to this. ( and yes I can remember that far back)

    Hi Peter,

    Mozart's Piano concerto no 21, (Elvira Madigan theme)

    Bruch Violin concerto 2cnd movement.

    A totally amazing piece of Brazilian music played on this year's Last night of the Proms. I'll find the name later.
    Rasga o coração, Villa Lobos

    Anything by Bernstein. He interpreted everything the best of all in my humble opinion. And West Side Story is probably my favorite for music.

    Pinckney, you should know better than to ask a question like that.
    Too many.

    EDIT: Not Jupiter. The planets all sound the same (not!)

    MARS The Bringer of War
    (by Holst) was what the played over the loudspeaker in the piazza de Michaelanglo in Firenze as the minutes counted down to the millennium turnover. I think they made it as dramatic as you please considering some were saying it would be the end of the world on the dot or 2000. 'Course some optimistic soul had the foresight to have some music of jubilation for after the stroke of midnight. But that lead in was surreal and I will never forget MARS playing with for real smoke rising illuminating the humans hanging off the statues and monuments. Was like a scene from Hell, without the anguish. Absolutely surreal as a painting by Heironymus Bosch, and never a cross word anywhere in that city that night. Context is everything, I think.

    I always had a soft spot for Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #2 but I've heard it so often, don't know if I still list it on top.

    But I think I'll have to go with Johnny B Goode. . . for the next 5 minutes at least.

    Hello Peter,

    Rachmaninoff:

    1. Second Piano Concerto
    2. Second Symphony
    Franz Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody
    Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D Major
    Amilcare Ponchielli: La Gioconda (Opera)
    Gustav Mahler: The 2nd, 3rd, 8th, and unfinished 9th Symphonies.
    George Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
    Mozart: Requiem
    Verdi: La Traviata (Opera)
    Bernstein: West Side Story
    Tom Waits: His entire discography (yes, I know this has little or nothing to do with classical music, but the soul of what is great in great classical music for me cannot be escaped in this mention.)

    A ton of other stuff, but these immediately came to mind.
