Greatest Classical Music Pieces

Gaspar
Classical pieces of no longer than 10 minutes composed before 1850.

The Top Ten

1 Ludwig Van Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata

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!

HEY GUYS classical is lame, Rock and Roll and Alternative forever - KingofSnails42

2 J. Pachelbel - Canon In D Major

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.

Ugh, the best.

This is like 1 hour, not 10 minutes - levtomas1998

There's a nice joke about this piece in Spanish, for whoever understands it. "Para quien compuso Beethoven la 5ta sinfonia? ¡Para papá! " - keyson

My favorite of this list. and of whole genre. - zxm

8 George F. Handel - Hallelujah Chorus

This song is too good to have been written by a human being - mukumadzivire

9 J.S. Bach - Toccata and Fugue In D Minor

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.

Possibly my favorite classical piece - BrotherOfWolves001

Scary

Incredible at the end of the film "Brassed Off", like a force of nature!

15 Leszek Jasionowski - Andante from Modern Piano Concerto No. 3

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.

16 Johann Strauss II: an Der Schönen Blauen Donau

Such joy and excitement is shown in this piece- the orchestration if pure magic.
