I'm not really a connoisseur of Classical pieces, but as a musician there are certain selections that I really respect and do enjoy. My absolute favorite is commonplace, but I still love it. That said, my vote is Beethoven's Piano Sonata in C-Minor (Moonlight Sonata). Something about that piece is haunting yet provocative.
The 5th, biatch.
This is the first movement of Beethovens 5th symphony. Composed between 1804 and 1808.

My 3 favorites....all of them around 10 minutes long or so.
Check out Nico Muhly - Speaks Volumes
... If he was a few hundred years old... he would probably be on all of those kind of lists.
Pachelbel's Canon in D. You hear it everywhere..even if you dont know it. Check out this Pachelbel rant video below. Enlightening and hilarious.
A comedian rants about how much it sucks to play Pachelbel's Canon in D on a cello. Recorded live at Penn State, this piece by comedian/musician Rob Paravonian has been a favorite on the Dr. Demento Show.
I watch and listen to a lot...
I tend to lean more toward opera... that said, probably my favorite non-operatic piece is adagio for strings by Barber
kill them whitey ded
i listen to opera more than anything at this point, but i do still listen to a ton of classical.
that being said, i think my favorite non-operatic piece is Adagio for Strings by Barber.
here ya go...

Four Season- Vivaldi.
We are ND
Blast from the past.
Aaron Copland is my favorite American composer (hell, maybe my favorite composer period). Love "Fanfare for the Common Man", and of course "Appalachian Spring." He also wrote the score for the film Of Mice and Men.
Another great piece that I absolutely love is John Williams' "Air and Simple Gifts" that he composed for President Obama's inauguration in 2009. It features Itzhak Perlman and Yo-Yo Ma. Interestingly enough, it also features elements from Copland's works. I remember watching it and the song brought tears to my eyes because it was so hauntingly beautiful. Anyway, here it is:
Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Anthony McGill, Gabriela Montero perform a John Williams' composition for today.
