41 Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No.1 In B Flat Minor, Op.23
42 Samuel Barber - Adagio for Strings

Only at 45?

43 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

44 Giacomo Puccini - Turandot, Act 3: Nessun Dorma!

Beautifully integrated into mission impossible 5's soundtrack

45 Gioachino Rossini - Overture to William Tell
46 Jean Sibelius - Finlandia
47 G. F. Haendel - Air (of Water Music Suite I)

If you don't know it google! - Gaspar

48 P. L. Tchaikovsky - Sting Quartet No.1
49 G. Tartini - Devil's Trill Sonata

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

50 Carl Off - Carmina Burana - O Fortuna

This is too low. O Fortuna is still used in pop culture to this day.

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 J.S. Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 in G major, BWV 1007
57 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!

58 Bedřich Smetana - Má Vlast Moldau
59 Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor

What?! This should totally be in the top 10. It's so powerfully elegant, blossoming passionate grandeur. A flawless composition.

60 Dvorak - New World Symphony ( Symphony n°9)

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.
