Favorite Piece of Music

Recommended Posts

That's a great piece...good choice. I'd rather listen to that than any of the four symphonies, frankly.

My favourite piece of music...that's impossible to say. It changes daily.

Corelli - Concerto Grosso Op. 10 No. 6 - Allemanda.

It's been that way for years, and I have no idea why. Ah well.

I'll agree with Mr.Graham on this one - It does change daily, It's very hard to say "Here's my Favourite Piece of Music" but for Now, I'll go with Tchaikovsky - Violin Concerto . (I'll probably post another favourite tomorrow - which reminds me - Merry Christmas People.

My favorite piece of music, eh? Well, as most of the others have said, it changes daily. Usually it is a Chopin polonaise. They are, in the lack of a better word, orgasmic. At the present moment however, my favorite piece of music is Mozart's 'motet'; exsultate jubilate.

EDIT: It just changed to Evard Grieg's fugue in f minor for string quartet, gah...

EDIT #2: Hehe, now it's Anatoly Liadov's Mazurka op 15, no 1.

My favorite piece of music is the full Firebird Suite by Stravinsky. That hasn't changed in a few years. Before that, I liked Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue best.

The Gabriel Faure Requiem Mass...never in my life have I felt so close to God as when I sang 'Hosana in Excelsis' at the top of my lungs in a Catholic cathedral in the middle of a huge bass section. It moved me in such a magical way, that I can't help but thank God for everything, all the bad all the good...all the things I am jaded about....Linda, I miss you

pieces like that are why I compose, why music is me why my passion is to create music....

Presently: Schubert- 4th Symphony "Tragic" 2nd movement

I think Boléro is inexplicably repetitive and can bore one to death.

I have a new top 6. Here shown in no particular order

* Beethoven - Piano sonata no 13

* Beethoven - Piano concerto no 5

* Grieg - String quartet in Gmaj

Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante in E- Flat!! I LOVE that piece. Although, IF you have never heard it before (You all SHOULD have heard it before! *cough* Nico... *cough* :happy: ..... JK) make sure you listen to a good performance of it. When it's played badly it sounds horrible! (Well, it's IMPOSSIBLE for Mozart's music to sound horrible :laugh: ). It'l sound bad.

It does change from time to time, though. Sometimes its Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" Overture, and sometimes it's Mozart's "Cosi fan Tutti" Overture and other times it's Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 9 in E- Flat. :D Oh, and also Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22 in E- Flat.

Which one? The one for violin and viola, or the one for oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and horn? They're both in E-flat.
