Re: The Classical Music Worship Thread

I love good classical music...studied it at University. I have way too many favourites to list them all, but off the top of my head, my top three would be

1. Chopin - Nocturne in F# major
2. Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique
3. Orff - Carmina Burana

1. RUBINSTEIN: piano concerto no.2 in c minor

I think you mean Rachmaninoff . Rubenstein didn't write a concerto in C minor. But Rachmaninoff's 2nd is very famous and in C minor.

I love L'Arlésienne.

And Gershwin, have to love Porgy and Bess, especially Summertime.

And he's really considered modern classical, but Yann Tiersen.

Re: The Classical Music Worship Thread

Have you guys heard the Glasgow Love's Theme classical piece from the Love Actualy soundtrack? I love that piece. It's very sad though Also, I like Russian Sailor's Dance and a piece called "Fantasy Quick" but I don't think anyone is familiar with that one at all.
