44 Paganini/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.

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

47 P. L. Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6
48 Erik Satie - Gymnopedie No. 1

This is amazing underrated. Just look it up!

49 JS 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.

50 G. Tartini - Devil's Trill Sonata

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

51 Maurice 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!

52 Rachmaninoff - 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.

53 Camille Saint Saens - Danse Macabre V 1 Comment
54 Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2
55 Franz Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No.2
