    I can listen to this two or three times a day. Incidentally, it was broadcast on German radio to mourn Hitler.

    Most of my collection is cello. And most of that is Bach (coincidentally his cello concertos played by YoYo Ma). But what I don't have of Bach's I have Mendelsohn, Beethoven (Brandenberg concertos used to be my 'go to sleep' music in high school). I have recently fallen in love with this piece :

    It doesn't have to be Jacqueline Du Pre, but she is just plain amazing.

    (Kol Nidrei is the name of the prayer and service that is said in synagogues the night before Yom Kippur).

    This piece just smacks me upside the head and I can listen to it on repeat constantly.

    Another group of symphonies that I am working on getting is The Planets, but I can't remember who by.

    I miss my classical station from back home...

    Richard Wagner's Die Walküre is one of my favorite pieces. I also love Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov. I really like bombastic music. I love Tchaikolvsky's 1812 Overture. And I third, or fourth, The Planets. I just downloaded the entire thing and am enjoying it.

    I know nothing about classical music.

    But putting Symphony Hall on my SiriusXM and being in traffic is fucking relaxing as hell. It's also great to put the windows down and blare it to everyone else.

    This is the best concert and it's so awesome that the King's Singers uploaded the whole thing.

    Also, this is another extremely informative piece of music. If you can understand everything that's going on in this video then you've got a pretty strong grasp of music history and theory.

    When i was younger i found a package of 20 Classical music CD's for 20 included all the really well known ones as well as stuff from the romantic period and one that i didnt expect to care for but found really good...Gregorian Chants.

    Its a very relaxing thing to listen to. Just clear beautiful voice that lingers in the soul.

    Debussy is the jam. I used to listen to this every day for, like, months. Now, I am a bit more restrained and only listen to it every week.

    Alright, I need to ask you guys something, I heard a song on the radio today called the "Sound Barrier." I only caught some of it, and that it was being done by a British composer, Sadly I can't find a trace of the song anywhere on the 'net. Can anybody help?

    I could probably dig up a bunch of game compositions that I really like, but I'll just settle for leaving this movie one here.

    Nearly anything done to this music is instantly epic, especially if timed to coincide with 3:23 :) I wash the dishes to this and I rarely complain.

    I really like Tchaikovsky and Berlioz.

    This might be my favorite piece of instrumental music:

    I also am a fan of Mozart and Beethoven and Wagner and Liszt and so on.

    As for more contemporary composers, I really really enjoy Phillip Glass (though I understand why some people don't)
