I am not a fan of classical music, but I absolutely adore Pachelbel's Canon - all-time masterpiece! So it's my choice.

Your choice?

One of my very favourites. In fact there are too many to list and it seems almost impossible for me to pick just a piece/movement out of an opus. It's just like asking for a fave out of Quadrophenia, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway or Dark Side Of The Moon. :cool: :smoke:

Ah, Mondscheinsonate. Love it. If you play it backwards you get Because by The Beatles. The rumours said so back in the day. :hail:

Stravinski - Firebird Suite (I actually played this one with my high school orchestra, which was seriously competitive - I played timpani and this was a blast!)

I also really like Stavinski's Sacre du Printemps

Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition is also a favorite

Holst - The Planets

Albinoni - Adagio

Growing up in upstate NY, my parents would frequently take us to see the Philadelphia orchestra in the summer at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) - under the stars... Tchaikivsky, Stravinski, Copeland... pretty amazing experience
