Some of my favorite Classical Music Pieces

Post by Deleted User 15475 » Sat Jan 09, 2021 2:44 am

I'll start out with Beethoven Symphony 9 op 125. Everything seems to blend well together, a tad sinister but optimistic as well.

I like the Roches version of The Halleujah Chorus. You can see it on a SNL episode from November 1979 hosted by Bea Arthur.

Eric Carmen "All By Myself" (interlude based on Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto # 2) & "Never Gonna Fall In Love Again" (melody based on Rachmaninov's "Second Symphony") (both from 1976).

Nobody's mentioned Ravel's Bolero? Accessible to everyone, yet still has its complexity; it is my absolute favorite piece of classical music.


Take anything people say with a grain of salt, a lime wedge, and maybe a bottle of tequila.
