Greatest Classical Music Pieces


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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!

62 Bedřich Smetana - Má Vlast Moldau
63 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.

64 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.

65 Howard Shore - Concerning Hobbits

This beautiful piece of music perfectly capture the spirit and essence of hobbits and and their beautiful and peaceful land, the Shire, a fictional location envisioned by Tolkien which represents all that the earth should have been, a peaceful and beautiful place in which the inhabitants are unhindered by greed, hate, and war of this corrupt and tainted world.

66 Camille Saint Saens - Danse Macabre V 1 Comment
67 Liszt - Piano Sonata In B Minor V 1 Comment
68 Jupiter - Gustav Holst

The complexity and layers to this masterpiece are remarkable. Never, ever gets old. Never fails to get me aggressively conducting in my living room whenever it comes on. - pixelmusician
