Greatest Classical Music Pieces


The Contenders: Page 2

21 W. A. Mozart - Requiem

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!

22 Richard Strauss - Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30
23 W. A. Mozart - Symphony No.40 In G Minor, K.550
24 Ludwig Van Beethoven - Bagatelle In A Minor, WoO 59 - "Für Elise": Poco moto

Why is this so low hasn't anybody heard it?

25 Jean Sibelius - Swan of Tuonela V 1 Comment
26 Mozart - Turkish March

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!

27 Brahms: Hungarian Dance No. 5 in G Minor
28 Franz Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

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

29 Modest Mussorgsky - Night on Bald Mountain
30 Aram Khachaturian - Sabre Dance
31 Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 V 1 Comment
32 Christian Petzold - Minuet in G Major
33 Claude Debussy - Clair de Lune

Better than that overplayed "moonlight sonata". This song is the best song about moons ever written.

The antithesis of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Beautiful piece, has a vibe that's not as dark. The mood conjured can only be summed up as: immersive.

34 Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture

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.

Truly empowering and magnificent. It contains such power within it.

That finale though
