23Modest Mussorgsky - Night on Bald Mountain
24Johann Strauss II: an Der Schönen Blauen Donau

Such joy and excitement is shown in this piece- the orchestration if pure magic.

25Brahms: Hungarian Dance No. 5 in G Minor
26Johann Strauss II: an Der Schönen Blauen Donau
27Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 9V1 Comment
28Christian Petzold - Minuet in G Major
29Claude Debussy - Clair de Lune

Better than that overplayed "moonlight sonata". This song is the best song about moons ever written.

The antithesis of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Beautiful piece, has a vibe that's not as dark. The mood conjured can only be summed up as: immersive.

30Tchaikovsky: The Nutcracker Suite, Russian Dance

Such a lovely piece... - keyson

31F. Mendelssohn - Wedding March (from A Midsummer Night's Dream)
32W. A. Mozart - Clarinet Concerto in A K622
33J.S. Bach - Air On the G String
34Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture

One of the most iconic pieces in all the classical repertoire at #50?

It's truly embarrassing how low this song is. This song is the DEFINITION of powerful.

Truly empowering and magnificent. It contains such power within it.

That finale though
