Greatest Classical Music Pieces


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Richard Strauss - Also Sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30
22 W. A. Mozart - Symphony No.40 In G Minor, K.550

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

23 W. A. Mozart - Piano Concerto in C #21 K467

For it is the most beautiful Piano concerto ever made!

The 2nd movement Andante only. Otherwise it would be longer. - Gaspar

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 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

26 Brahms: Hungarian Dance No. 5 in G Minor
27 Jean Sibelius - Swan of Tuonela V 1 Comment
28 Modest Mussorgsky - Night on Bald Mountain
29 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!

30 Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 V 1 Comment
31 Aram Khachaturian - Sabre Dance
32 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.

33 Christian Petzold - Minuet in G Major
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
