41Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings
42Carl Off - Carmina Burana - O Fortuna

43Brandenburg Concertos - Johann Sebastian Bach

As a whole these pieces are some of the best music ever written. The quality, style, and uniqueness are unsurpassed.

44Paganini/Liszt - Etude no. 3 in G sharp minor "La Campanella"

One of the highlights of the virtuoso repertoire. It is a treat to listen to and heavenly to play.

One of the most exhilarating pieces of music I have heard. The height of virtuoso piano.

45JS Bach: Bach Chaconne

Listen to Heifetz play the Chaconne. This is perhaps the most sorrowful piece I've ever heard, and just by composing this one piece, Bach has made his way to the top of my musical list. It's truly magnificent, the way the emotions can dig deep inside the hearts of listeners.

How is this so far down the piece? My favorite piece by my favorite composer...

Factually proven to be the hardest piece to play on the violin.

46Ludwig Van Beethoven - Bagatelle In A Minor, WoO 59 - "Für Elise": Poco moto

Why is this so low hasn't anybody heard it?

47G. Tartini - Devil's Trill Sonata

How is this not number 1 or at least in the top 5?

48P. L. Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6
49Maurice Ravel - Bolero

What's the principle of woman sexuality? Scientists can't say exactly, but listen to Bolero and you will know...

This is the definition of powerful! Heavy metal from the 20's!

50Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor

What?! This should totally be in the top 10. It's so powerfully elegant, blossoming passionate grandeur. A flawless composition.

51Erik Satie - Gymnopedie No. 1

This is amazing underrated. Just look it up!

52Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2
53Franz Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

If this masterpiece was a created in any of the western or elegant societies, the world would knew it as the best classical music piece ever composed. And so well do we now.

Amazing, Liszt is the greatest composer of all time

54W. A. Mozart - Summer Overture
55Hector Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique
56O. Respighi - Pines of Rome
57G. Rossini - The Thieving Magpie Overture
58Bizet - L'Arlesienne Suite
59Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 7

It's a piece of masterwork.

60Bedřich Smetana - Má Vlast Moldau
