So classical music fans what is your all time favourire piece of classical music? (it can be in any style of classical music). Mine is Scottish fantasy, 1st movement by the German Max Bruch, When I listen to that piece it always seems to bring up pictures in my mind of the Scottish highlands tribes and their falied Jacobite rebellion. I also get pictures in my mind of the English soldiers coming to destory their way of life so they can never rebel against the English again (yes it is a very sad sounding piece).
Other pieces I really like are Prince Igor from the Opera Polovtsian Dances by Borodin, The four seasons, summer- 3rd movement by Verdi (but I do like all the pieces of the four seasons it is just that is my favourite), Joy of man desiring by Bach, The heart asks pleasure first by Nyman, A night on a bare mountain by Mussorgsky, Fantasia on greensleeves by Ralph Vaugham Williams, Symphony no. 5 in E minor, 2nd movement by Tchaikovsky, The young prince and princess from Schelerazade by Rimisky Korsakov, Requien for my friend- Lacrimosa by Preisner, 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, Le onde by Einaudi, The Ashokan farewell by Ungar, Violin Concerto, 2nd movement by Philip Glass, Concerto for flute and harp in C major, 2nd movement by Mozart and Mars the bringer of war by Holst (but I do like all the pieces of the plantes it is just that is my favourite).
