    We should include romantic/baroque era in here as well as classical!

    Probably both Chopin concerti (although Op.21 in F minor is my favourite), Chopin's Op.52 ballade, Bruch violin concerto, Mendelssohn violin concerto, all of the Schubert impromptus, Beethoven symphonies nos. 3, 5, 6 and 7, Beethoven piano concerti nos. 4 and 5 and the violin concerto. Liszt's mephisto waltzes, the B minor sonata, Faust symphony, the Transcendentals Nos. 4, 8, 10 and 12, the Paganini Etudes + Liebestraum. Rachmaninoff concerti nos. 2, 3 and 4 and the Paganini Rhapsody.

    Sorry, I just cannot choose a single favourite!

    How about you OP?

    i have made a Spotify™ playlist of the fragrant Vilde Frang.

    The current track is the Allegro Moderato from Tchaikowsky's Violin Concerto in D Major.

    They are all wonderful tbh.

    Ah wondeful thank you! I am excited to go through that list :thumbsup:

    For me on the top of my head it world be: Vivaldi-four seasons, Mozart symphony No 40, 4,25,36, Antonin Dvorak new world symphony, I love love love Beethoven- moonlight sonata and Fur Elise (I love them both equally), recently I stumbled upon "The best of Tchaikovsky" on youtube, I can't say I was familiar with his work at all but I really enjoyed it

    That's about all I can think of right now Thanks for your post!

    Aah! You're reminding me of so many things I didn't liszt!

    I love the Beethoven sonatas, especially the late ones - I can play the No.23 Appassionata and the No.32 in C minor. Some of the most wonderful of Beethoven's works in my opinion.

    Try the Tchaikovsky symphonies - the 4th is my favourite!

    Gustav Holst - The Planets. Mars and Jupiter being my favourite. Jupiter is a masterpiece.
    Cello Suite no. 1 - Bach
    The whole complete Cello Concertos - Vivaldi
    Toccata et Fugue - Bach
    Sugar Plum Fairy - Tchaikovsky
    The girl with the Flaxen hair and Clair de Lune- Claude Debussy

    Impressionism rather than Classicism, but in the spirit of the thread:

    Oh I do wish I had some musical ability! I listened to Tchiakovsky's 4th symphony, would it be odd to say I felt "empowered"? haha

    Absolutely - it really is a very structurally complex work - the analysis is very interesting if you can find it somewhere.

    Well, one instrument is the right number in my opinion! I know someone who plays harp, cello, violin and flute.

    The only instrument I ever chose is the piano and, as that has been my only instrumental focus, I have the delight of learning the Liszt B minor, for example, which truly is a masterpiece and is so rewarding to learn, particularly the andante sostenuto and the staccato beginning the fugue - to think Clara Schumann despised it when it was dedicated to her husband!

    I do love Bach's cello suites, and the Brandenburg concertos too of course. I could list a ton, but if it was just one piece it would have to be Dvorak's New World Symphony. Each movement is just perfect

    At the moment, Ave Verum by Mozart. We are singing it in choir. I also love Habanera from the Opera Carmen. Sorry, that's more opera than classical but it's kinda similar
