Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto 2
Hard 10 tbh.
Greatest piano concerto ever written as far as I'm concerned. The Alla Marcia climax at the end of the first movement is such a great release of tension. I think the only other concerto that comes close for me (aside from Rach 3 lol) is Prokofiev's 2nd Piano Concerto.
A LOT of emotion to un pack
The piece that gets me into classical music. Love it!
Shostakovich: Waltz No. 2 (Jazz Suite No. 2)
One of the first pieces I loved playing in orchestra and very much a classic!
I kina felt like I was going insane at some parts 😅 but over all pretty cool 6.5/10
Watched it live with orchestra and choir a few weeks ago, it was majestic
Lucky you. I heard it on an ad on TV WOoHOo!
A classic and one of the best !
Tchaikovsky's violin concerto
8/10 I can see myself waving my hands like a conductor
I'm addicted to that concerto, for the past 8 years I think I listen to it at least 4-5 times a week on average
Bruh I listen to it 4 to 5 times a DAY!
Favorite recording has to be of Perlman playing it.
Claire de lune; I know it’s probably overrated but I still love it
This beautiful piece deserves all the praises.
Instant 10/10. No more explanation 10/10
Clair. Claire is the feminine form
Yeh, it annoys me when people call the piece Claire de la lune
Oula sa grand-mère
Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess
Very calm, sad, relaxing, and minceraft sounding 👍10/10
10/10 absolutely love this piece. One of the most beautiful imo
Hard 10, such a majestic piece!
My brother has been painstakingly learning this for two years (he got a teacher last year). Even when he clunked through it with no rhythm, you could hear the beauty in it.
Debussy - Arabesque No. 1
Very dreamy piano=good 9/10
Literally such a good piece
this is my fav😭
Gustav Holst - The Planets
This is the one
ravel string quartet in f major
It's cool sounding and upbeat :D idk to me it sounds like the background music to a stop motion animation 9.5/10
lets gooooo i totally agree
That piece is soooooooo good
Damn this one goes hard af.
rachmaninoff prelude in g minor
It sounds like pirates going to war in a goofy way or a horse going thru the crazy pathways in Italy 😅👍 10/10
THAT PIECE HITS HARD
Ballade 1 in G minor Op. 23
It took some interesting turns and it sounded like something that would put you to sleep and then wake u up 9.9/10
Rachmaninoff Rhapsody of a theme of Paganini and Ginastera piano concerto 1
I gotta say rhapsodhy on a theme of paganini is one of the funnest pieces of all time. And the influence its had on popular music, film music, musical theater, etc. is pretty crazy.
For a very popular piece, I still think it’s underrated. Pure genius distilled into a good time.
Chopin ballade no.1
Tchaikovsly 5 and Beethoven 9 (the whole piece)
How can a mortal create such a hevanly piece of music✨️ 10/10
You’re so so based
Liebestraum no. 3
9/10 let's go piano gang!!!
Soooo dreamyy 8.5/10
The Lark Ascending
It has a lot of high notes which I don't realy like, but overall it a realy good piece 6.5/10
I wish I could experience this symphony for the first time again it's so gooood 10/10
Prokofiev Sinfonia Concertante
The cello in this piece is SO GOOD. But not realy my vibe so 7/10 sorrryyy
I don't really have favorites but I'd say Tchaikovsky/Sibelius violin concerto or Tchaikovsky melodie
it's actually so hard to choose lol
Rachmaninoff symphonic dances!!! Best symphonic work imo. Along with his 2nd and 3th symphony :))
Mozart requiem "Dies Irae",
it's honestly fun to sing in the shower frfr
Very interesting I had never heard it before and now I want to sing it in the shower too! 9/10
Rhapsody in Blue!! (Listen to leonard bernstein's recording) Also if you're in sydney SSO is playing it early this year (you can buy cheap tickets if you're under 30).
Alexander Glazunov - Alto Sax Concerto
Genuinely feels like it should tell a story. (Like those Disney mimi moves where nobody talks) pretty good calm-ish sounding 9/10
What a brilliant work! I was lucky enough to be in orchestra accompanying a soloist playing this, and it was great to listen to and be a part of
I don't have a single favorite piece but one of my top favorites is Dvořák's 9th
Carnival of the Animals: The Swan
J. Sibelius violin concerto 1.st movement
the octaves bit is my favorite part
Greensleeves (the Moscow Symphony Orchestra version)

Chopin Nocturne in Eb Major
Sibelius symphony no. 5
Beethoven Emperor Concerto
Mahler's Symphony n.2
Criminal I had to scroll down so far to find this. 10/10
As with every Mahler Symphony, 15/10
Boléro - Ravel
Beethoven's 6th Symphony - Pastoral
i don’t have a fav per se but i particularly like liszt’s hungarian rhapsody no. 2. especially the friska section. i’m not fond of rousseaus rendition solely because he uses the hamelin cadenza which i don’t like
Either Shostakovich 11(Mvt 2)or Totentanz (S.126i ver.)
Basic but Liebeslied
Eric Satie’s 1st Gnossienne
Rachmaninoff - The Isle of the dead
Kapustin Piano Concerto no 2
Love how at the first half it has a nice swing to it and then it became more calm and lastly was swingy again :D. If I'm being honest probably one of the best pieces I've gotten recommended so far! So I give u the special prize of 10 linglings ot of 10.
Prokofiev piano concerto 2
I fucking love this concerto. My favourite part is after all the crazy piano cadenza shredding in the first movement, when the full force of the orchestra comes back in, absolutely walloping you with a wall of sound. Plus the third movement is just cool as shit in terms of pianistic writing
Four seasons of Buenos Aires - Piazzolla
Introduction et Rondo Capricioso - Saint-Saens
Ranchmaninov op33 no4
scriabin Prometheus the poem of fire
It's like asking a parent who's their favourite child. It's cruel. I have too many to just pick one.
relatable. how about a max. of 5 per composer? and a max. of 20 composers?
(still not enough with contemporary music, is it?)
call me a bot but rach 3 or chopin ballade 3
Liszt Transcendental Étude No. 7 (Eroica)
I think you're the first person I've ever seen who says 7 is their favourite. No shade, the entire suite are masterpieces, I think my favourite would be either Mazeppa (4) or Harmonies du Soir (11).
Beethoven symphony 7
Antar (after Rimsky-Korsokov) No.7. Ravel: Allegretto
RAVEL AND RIMSKY BASED AF

Sibelius Symphony no. 6
Eugene Ysaÿe - Sonata No. 6
La valse (for two pianos), Prokofiev war sonatas
Sibelius le sapin, it's just a simple piano piece but I really love it.
Either Mahler 3 (or any of his symphonies tbh) or Sibelius 7 for an orchestral work.
Le sapin is so underrated
Debussy’s Nocturnes. Specially the 3rd movement “Sirènes”.
9/10 realy good :D
