    I'm more a fan of Beethoven

    Furelise
    Moonlight Sonata
    The Tempest
    Ode To Joy
    Piano Concerto 1.3

    but I like "Adagio for Strings" by Samuel Barber the best

    Has to be the piano version (not fully orchestrated, though i do like that too!!), of Elgar's Chanson de Matin - my mum has been playing it since i was very little, and it has the ability to make me happy or sad, depending on what mood i'm in. I also like the Halleighleuiah(so not spelt right, don't care!) chorus, by Handel, and others but i don't know their names.

    Sorry, but i'm not really into classical music. Nothing against it, just don't really get round to ever listening to any of the stuff. Maybe you could educate me??

    In no particular order...

    * Mozart, Lacrimosa
    * Bach Double Violin Concerto (I always play second violin..)
    * Beethoven, Fur Elise
    * Beethoven, Moonlight Sonata
    * Rimsky Korsakov, The Bumblebee (I've always wanted to play this piece.. I will one day)
    * Ciprian Porumbescu, Balada
    * Vivaldi, The Four Seasons
    * Pachelbel, Kanon in D (But I've played it at too many weddings... it was THE wedding song of the 90s)

    I love many more but these are some of my favourites.
