The Top Ten
Honestly, this is the best thing I've ever heard! It's a masterpiece. If I don't feel good, I just listen it and it takes all the stress on me, clears my mind, helps me think.. So if you didn't listen it yet, you really miss something big. Listen it right now!
This song is so overrated! Only the third movement is any good, and I would hardly call it the greatest classical piece ever! Beethoven is great, don't get me wrong, I voted for his 9th (which he composed when he was deaf, by the way). All you idiots just need to see this quote from the composer himself on this very piece which, I think, sums it up.
"Surely I've written better things."
-Ludwig Van Beethoven
The ominousness and the sheer beauty and simpleness is just amazing!
This is the best classical piece like Bohemian Rhapsody is the best song. - AlkadikceV 15 Comments
It leaves such character after listening to it the first time.
It leaves even more after the second time.
No matter how many times you have listened to it, it will continue to inspire you forever.
My favorite classical piece by far. Possibly the most beautiful music ever written in any genre. Whenever I feel sad or angry, I play Canon and it just makes me feel better. I tear up every time I listen to it.
Much better than all the other classical works. Missing Vivaldi's four seasons in the list, would be a good number 2 after Pachelbel.
I absolutely love this song. It just calms me down. - TheHabsFanV 15 Comments
Let's be honest and in simple terms, what's not to love about this epic apotheosis of music?
Dun dun dun dunn - DJvedar1234
This is like 1 hour, not 10 minutes - levtomas1998

This a very great song go to YouTube listen my friend visiting cried... weird.
Finale of the 9th Symphony and European Anthem. - Gaspar

This music is suspenseful and just really cool. If you've never heard this piece, you should!
This one puts a smile on your face and gets you all charged up with its amazing intensity!
Really powerful! I love this piece.
To me this is really the best piece of classical mus ic.f rom the soft intro to the powerful choral voca ls.t his piece is perfe ct! a nd those awesome not es.d uh du du duh du du the du du the du du the d... I also like the rainbow version of it. - Toucan
Is indeed a legendary composition. Listening to the Intro makes me feel as if I am witnessing the BigBang, something huge, massive and spectacular. The transition in the music is as smooth as butter. Needs to be high above in the rank!
Wow. Many people know this better as "The Vampire Song" or Toccata and Fugue in D "Dracula" minor. This song is so intense yet so beautiful.
This music entity proves, that from chaos, order emerges and yet, they are the same.
I cannot believe the first work by Bach is at #7! This Piece is genius.V 4 Comments
This song is too good to have been written by a human being - mukumadzivire
only the 1st movement - allegro
of the serenade which lasts 16 minutes - Gaspar
This reminds me my childhood. It's such an amazing piece. - keyson
Enjoy it before falling asleep - Gaspar
I am Mozart’s descendent and when I was a kid my father told me amazing stories of this guy.V 2 Comments
Honestly this should be at the top.
Für Elise is AMAZING
It's not that amazing when it is played 30 times daily on a street piano. - Alkadikce
The last piece of music Mozart ever wrote, he put all of his knowledge he gained throughout his years into writing it on his deathbed. It's only when someone is in a situation when they can truly convey real emotions into a piece of music and that's exactly what Wolfgang did in requiem.
It is said that it's his best work, but he didn't finish it. A pupil did. - keyson
This has to be in top 10!
And from the best 5 also
Amazing piece, lacrymosa is the best!
Incredible at the end of the film "Brassed Off", like a force of nature!
Kill the wabbit - Mariomaster63
Dope ass song
Why is this so low hasn't anybody heard it?
Actually too many people heard it compared to much greater classical pieces. - Alkadikce
Same on piano as Smoke On The Water on guitar. Beginner's favorite, everyone thinks he is cool if he can play either sotw or Für Elise. - Alkadikce
Every second of it just breathtakingly beautiful
This song is beautiful.
CHOPIN WAS CONSIDERED THE BEST PIANIST OF ALL TIMES
Simple and nice introduction, very well developed body of the concerto, very pleasant, calming but still serious and reflective. Very, very nice to listen.
Pleasure to listen to this piece. So relaxing, but with some serious moments.
Very pleasant, relaxing and romantic.
Such joy and excitement is shown in this piece- the orchestration if pure magic.
Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers is a very similar style, but for me it's more artistic than Blue Danube. - Alkadikce
Blue Danube is bae!
It's the music in 2001: A Space Odyssey. No matter how you hear it, the music is insurmountably epic, and deserves to be in the top five.
Yay This is kieran's favourite
Bach�s most popular cantata - Gaspar
The greatest piece of classical I have ever listened to. Motivating calming inspiring!
WHAAT? Number 22. Have you ever listened to this? Wo.another shock from this sites terrible voting.
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
I love this song - Orlemley
Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and symphony no.40 have to be my favourite pieces by W.A.Mozart. I find symphony no.40 really romantic for some reason and literally feel like an elegant princess when I listen to this even
For it is the most beautiful Piano concerto ever made!
The 2nd movement Andante only. Otherwise it would be longer. - Gaspar
Better than that overplayed "moonlight sonata". This song is the best song about moons ever written.
I don't know how this piece could be so low. Yes Beethovens moonlight sonata and 5th symphony are incredible... But this is, in my opinion better, so beautiful and well rounded and I could listen to it on repeat for the rest of my life.
The only piece of music that can make me cry
good songV 1 Comment
When I learned how to play it in the piano I felt anything in the world is possible. - keyson
After learning this, I thought I was able to play anything in the world!
Why isn't this on the top ten?
Incredible piano playing!
There are so few votes on this list? I put it #1 in my remix and it immediately becomes #33? - Alkadikce
Surprised this is that low. It's one of those one everyone has heard at one point or another and really gets you pumped.
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.
Sweet paired with explosions youll surly have a blast - PrinceOfFireV 4 Comments
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.
I love the whole symphony! My favorite part is the second movement! It has a cor anglais solo, I love cor anglais solos. The second movement is my favorite piece out of all music on the world.
I would classify it as "pop-classical". It was meant to be popular, not to be a work of art. - Alkadikce
My favorite concerto, why so low? =(
Only at 45?
49th? O Fortuna is one of the top 5 best pieces I have ever heard or will hear.
Probably the only thing I liked about Excalibur. Really stirring. - truckturner
This is too low. O Fortuna is still used in pop culture to this day.
Lyrics: Salsa cookies, windmill cookies, they gave you diarrhea. Ow, paper cut. Sandpaper aah!
