  1. I know everyone's choices would inevitably be subjective to some extent. So I think there is great room for variety and little room for argument over which are indeed the ten greatest movements ever composed. I hope that this will at least serve for each of you as an occasion to revisit the classical music that you love and consider the greatest, as it has been for me. Here are my choices in no particular order: 1. Beethoven String Quartet No. 14, Op. 131, last movement "Presto". This is the one that inspired me with the idea for this thread. So I think that this IS the greatest movement of music ever composed. For me, it constitutes the powerful victory of the human spirit over hardship and evil. I think there is no more victorious music ever composed. 2. Mozart Symphony No. 40, last movement "Allegro", a dramatic movement that forges ahead despite every hardship. 3. Beethoven Symphony No. 5, 1st movement "Allegro con brio". 4. Mozart String Quartet K. 421, 1st movement "Allegro" 5. Schubert String Quartet No. 14, D. 810, "Death and the Maiden", 1st movement "Allegro" 6. Brahms String Quartet No. 1, Op. 51, No. 1, 1st movement "Allegro" 7. Mozart Requiem K. 626, 7th movement "Confutatis" 8. Handel Messiah Oratorio, "Hallelujah Chorus" 9. Bach Partita No. 2, last movement "Ciaccona" 10. Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 29 "Hammerklavier", last movement "Largo Allegro Risoluto"
