Sorry, Forgot to add, they are both amazing. Danse Macabre is just so amazing and beautiful in a weird way. It's popular but good.
A River FLows In You always makes me want to cry when I hear it, which makes it so good. Very emotional.

Wow, That piece by Danse Macabre was really nice! I liked that one a lot.

The Planets Suite by Gustav Holst is pretty good, especially Jupiter 3nodding

Venus and Naptune are my favorite from The Planets.

My all time favorite is Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral by Wagner... I HAVE CRIED COUNTLESS TIMES LISTENING TO THAT PIECE.
Ney Rosauro - Marimba Concerto

(Really, anything by Tchaikovsky.)

Debussy - Clair de lune

(Really, anything by him, too, or Chopin.)

George Antheil - Ballet Mechanique

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEuDFJd6_2U


These are all pretty common pieces, so you're probably already familiar with them, but that doesn't make them any less awesome!
Im in piano, so of course I listen to piano pieces^^. I think my favorite although I love almost every piece I hear) would have to be Beethovens 9th symphony. Its amazing he could still manage that piece without his hearing. Instead he listened to the vibrations off the piano. That takes talent:3
Seeing some good stuff here. Love me some Dvorak, Saint-Saens, and Debussy. :3

Anitra's Dance by Edward Grieg (from the Peer Gynt Suite). You may have to turn it up a bit, I had a hard time finding any recordings loud enough. xP


And Dvorak's Cello Concerto is really superb. This is only the first movement but the whole concerto is amazing. I just saw it last week at the Phoenix Symphony, in fact! n_n Zuill Bailey was the cellist and I enjoyed his interpretation immensely. One of the best performances of the concerto I've heard.

xd I suppose I should also put up my own favorite piece. Currently my favorite piece is Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2. It is fantastic!

What a coincidence to see you loving this piece!

I've just been practising it on the piano. ^^ Still struggling to get past the first few bars well(!!!)

I've been hooked on Rachmaninoff very recently.. if you like Rachmaninoff, I am sure you'll like this beautiful piano piece:

mrgreen Wow. That's very impressive that you are attempting to learn it! Do you consider yourself to be a fairly good pianist?

I'm very sad that I have not heard this piece before, but I definitely loved it! Thanks for that. And I can't agree with you more. I've been hooked on Rachmaninoff for quite a while now so I can see why. 3nodding

Have you heard his Vocalise Op. 34, No. 14 before?


And for the sake of more Rachmaninoff, have you heard is Rhapsody on a Theme by Pagannini? (Here is part 1 of 3)

Peter and the wolf Sergei Prokofiev


That one is really cool. I heard it once on the radio and thought it was fantastic. (I also found it kind of interesting that it was narrated)
Lord Sreder



You might have heard this piece before. It's a popular piece with audiences! (often an encore piece I find) I always thought whoever played this for me.. I'd instantly fall in love with them. emotion_kirakira

The masculinity of Rachmaninoff's music just flows through this piece. Amongst the gentle tenderness he portrays at about 1:15 and onwards. It's a masterpiece!

Ahhh Paganini is definitely a piece I've heard many times over! It's a very famous piece as I know. Not a huge fan of it though! I prefer the piano concerto No.2 over it. :3

I have heard of the Vocalise before somewhere, but didn't know it was by Rachmaninoff!

Thanks for that, it is truly a beautiful piece. Just listened to the cello and piano accompaniment version too. I love that as well as the vocal one.

Indeed I have. And in fact, I'm learning that Prelude as we speak! mrgreen (The chords really are monstrous) It's definitely one of his more popular encore pieces (though not as popular as his Prelude in C# minor Op. 3, No. 2.

I do like really that Paganini piece, but I can agree with you, I definitely prefer his 2nd piano concerto over that one as well.

mrgreen Well now you know it was by Rachmaninoff and I'm sure that might make you like it even more.

I never listened to any other version of than the vocal and orchestral version. I must say, that was really nice. 3nodding

Well here is another one by Rachmaninoff. I don't know if you know it, but here is his Etude Op. 39, No. 6. With this one, someone reeaally has to be a virtuoso pianist to pull it off. sweatdrop
