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.

78 Leevi Madetoja - Symphony No. 2
79 Camille Saint-Saëns - Symphony No. 3

Underrated masterpiece, which the case of most Saint Saens music

80 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.
