Children love it especially, it was my first favourite piece too!
Primavera is still among my top choices but the one I currently appreciate the most is Also Sprach Zarathustra by Strauss
But I go through phases. For art (I include prose), I personally can't talk about an actual favourite, as there is so much to appreciate in every masterpiece. Others I listen to frequently are Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Brandenburg Konzert 1 (favourite is part 4), Va Pensiero, the 4 seasons and Beethoven's 5th symphony.
I still love it and I am not a child anymore
Also Sprach Zarathustra is a powerful and grandiose piece
I like it, but it is a bit too long for me
Of course there is, they are masterpieces after all
Ah, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is as classic as it gets for Mozart
It has a lovely and noble tone, truly
I have not listened to all the Brandenburg Konzert pieces, but that part is my favourite too so far!
Going to listen to Va Pensiero now
That symphony is the classic scary music
It is full of suspense and conveys that feeling very well and has a few calm parts that act like the calm before the storm. It is good, but again, I am not a huge fan of it since I like bright and happy pieces
