The giant German composer and pianist (1770 – 1827)

The Top Ten

1 Ode to Joy (Symphony No.9)

I like it because it is very grand.

Among critics, it is almost universally considered Beethoven's greatest work of all time.

The Anthem of the European Union - MatrixGuy

Nothing parallel to this!

2 Symphony No. 5

Everyone all over the world knows this song, the four opening notes are so famous even though three of them are the same. Even if you have never heard this before it will sound familiar to you. I just love this because you know Beethoven must have put a lot of time into this fabulous symphony and it really pays off. This Symphony will be remembered forever!

This symphony is filled with emotion that reaches the darkest places of the human soul.

Love that music I heard it in an orchestra before as a 5th grade field trip


3 Moonlight Sonata, Movement 1

To be able an just kick back on a Sunday morning and drink my coffee, listen to the birds, and relax an enjoy life... Is what it is all about

AMAZING! This is the most emotional piece you will ever hear in your life! This piece gives me goosebumps down my spine every time.

It feels like a dream that keeps getting better and better. The triplets and the interjections make it all the better.

So soothing

6 Violin Concerto In D Major
7 Sonata N°8 In C Major Op.13 "pathétique"

Over all the piece is just brilliant! my favorite would have to be the second one!

8 Beethoven, Symphony 7, Allegretto, mvt 2

I feel inspired when I listen to this song. I often play this song in the back of my head for hours or even days at a time.

This is a lesson for all progressive music : classical, prog rock or prog metal

The most beautiful piece of music ever written with the most ingenious dynamics I've ever heard

Beautiful music

9 Violin Sonata No. 7
10 6th Symphony - Pastoral

I really love it. The best.

The Contenders

11 The Ruins of Athens / Turkish March

I really like it

12 Moonlight Sonata, Movement 2

It is so great I really want to know how to play like that.

13 Sonata No. 14 Moonlight Sonata

Moonlight sonata is by far the best Beethoven had ever composed

I feel desperation and beauty when I listen to this

14 Symphony No. 9
15 Egmont Overture, Op. 84

Very pleasing to the ears. I would say one of the more difficult songs for a piano player. You'd have to be very good to get this one down not like Fur Elise.

16 Piano Sonata No. 8
17 Piano Concerto. No. 5 Emperor
18 Symphony No. 7
19 Minuet in G Major, Woo 10, No. 2


20 Sonata No. 8 Pathetique
