I first heard it here, and was spellbound. Starts at 3:00 (anyone know what starts at :032? love that too), reaches it's climax with a shadowed Nosferatu framed by the castle door:



Also really love that triumpant part in Copeland's Appalachian Spring

It's taken out of the film Nosferatu (Werner Herzog, 1979). Original soundtrack by Popol Vuh. The track is called On The Way.

George Bizet Symphony 1 in C. He began writing it four days after he turned 17, and he completed it a month later. I absolutely adore this work. Bizet was considered to be the French Beethoven.
