Greatest Classical Music Pieces


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings

Only at 45?

42 J.S. Bach - Air On the G String
43 Giacomo Puccini - Turandot, Act 3: Nessun Dorma!

Beautifully integrated into mission impossible 5's soundtrack

44 Gioachino Rossini - Overture to William Tell
45 G. Tartini - Devil's Trill Sonata

How is this not number 1 or at least in the top 5?

46 Paganini/Liszt - Etude no. 3 in G sharp minor "La Campanella"

One of the highlights of the virtuoso repertoire. It is a treat to listen to and heavenly to play.

One of the most exhilarating pieces of music I have heard. The height of virtuoso piano.

Ridiculously god, the best

47 Jean Sibelius - Finlandia
48 G. F. Haendel - Air (of Water Music Suite I)

If you don't know it google! - Gaspar

49 P. L. Tchaikovsky - Sting Quartet No.1
50 Carl Off - Carmina Burana - O Fortuna

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!

You get the point - Mariomaster63

51 Brandenburg Concertos - Johann Sebastian Bach

As a whole these pieces are some of the best music ever written. The quality, style, and uniqueness are unsurpassed.

52 P. L. Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6
53 Erik Satie - Gymnopedie No. 1

This is amazing underrated. Just look it up!

54 JS Bach: Bach Chaconne

Listen to Heifetz play the Chaconne. This is perhaps the most sorrowful piece I've ever heard, and just by composing this one piece, Bach has made his way to the top of my musical list. It's truly magnificent, the way the emotions can dig deep inside the hearts of listeners.

How is this so far down the piece? My favorite piece by my favorite composer...

Factually proven to be the hardest piece to play on the violin.

55 Chopin - Nocturne op.9 No.2
56 Edvard Grieg - Peer Gynt Suite No. 1
57 J.S. Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 in G major, BWV 1007
58 Beethoven - Symphony No 6
59 Maurice Ravel - Bolero

What's the principle of woman sexuality? Scientists can't say exactly, but listen to Bolero and you will know...

This is the definition of powerful! Heavy metal from the 20's!

60 Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 7

It's a piece of masterwork.
