63 W. A. Mozart - Summer Overture
64 Hector Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique
65 O. Respighi - Pines of Rome
66 G. Rossini - The Thieving Magpie Overture
67 Bizet - L'Arlesienne Suite
68 Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 7

It's a piece of masterwork.

69 Chopin: Waltz No. 1 in E flat Major, Op. 18
70 Hans Zimmer - Gladiator Suite
71 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.

72 F. Chopin - Ballade in G Minor
73 George Gershwin - Rhapsody in Blue

I've heard this master piece to much and I've won a musical competition with this piece on solo piano. But before you can understand Gershwin you have know who he was and to listen to some other of his orchestral pieces (like An American in Paris, Piano Concerto, Cuban Overture, Second Rhapsody, Girl Crazy overture, etc.) and his piano preludes. Some people say that American composers Aaron Copland (1900-1990) and Gershwin have the same music but that isn't true! But over Rhapsody in blue: It's a rhapsody like a piano concerto composed in 1924 and is in my opinion on number 15-20 in my top 40 Classical pieces and the best piece of George Gershwin. The famous version of these days is arranged by American Ferde Grofé and the original jazz band version is composed by Gershwin, the piano solo played by Gershwin (There is still an audio from his performance), and the piece is conducted by Paul Whiteman. The Gershwin audio is 10 minutes and the full version is 16-19 minutes and sometimes ...more

Honestly people haven't heard this thing enough! It's combination of classical music and jazz takes pride as it describes New York City beautifully, played out in the Disney movie Fantasia 2000 of course.

74 The Second Waltz - Dmitri Shostakovich

I had quite the fit of tears...

75 J.S. Bach: Brandenburg Concerto

Vivid excitement through trills and grandeur

76 Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 5
77 Pictures at an Exhibition - Promenade, Modest Muggsorksy
78 Orpheus in the Underworld - Infernal Gallop, Jacques Offenbach

The Can-can that can!

79 Giuseppe Verdi - La Donna è Mobile
80 Vincenzo Bellini - Casta Diva
