61Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 7

62Bedřich Smetana - Má Vlast Moldau
63Chopin: Waltz No. 1 in E flat Major, Op. 18
64Hans Zimmer - Gladiator Suite
65Howard Shore - Concerning Hobbits

This beautiful piece of music perfectly capture the spirit and essence of hobbits and and their beautiful and peaceful land, the Shire, a fictional location envisioned by Tolkien which represents all that the earth should have been, a peaceful and beautiful place in which the inhabitants are unhindered by greed, hate, and war of this corrupt and tainted world.

The Can-can that can!

73Giuseppe Verdi - La Donna è Mobile

76O. Respighi - Feste Romane

Also extremely difficult to play

77Leevi Madetoja - Symphony No. 2
78Camille Saint-Saëns - Symphony No. 3

Underrated masterpiece, which the case of most Saint Saens music

79Dvorak - New World Symphony ( Symphony n°9)

Beautiful, just beautiful, especially the 2nd movement. This one piece inspired three of the greatest film scores of all time: star wars, Lord of the Rings and jaws. What other pieces here can you say that about?

Especially the 4th movement. The one that got me into classical music.

80Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending
