i prefer mostly modern music, but i do enjoy classical from time to time.. anyone have any favorite pieces? (include whole pieces, concertos, or segments, any you wish) I have to say i am very partial to wind instruments, such as the flute/piccolo etc...they have such a beautiful sound...that is why i love many of these particular pieces: Vivaldi - the goldfinch, and Four Seasons (Spring) Bach's Flute Concerto, and Flute Sonata in E Flat an anonymous flute tune knows as "Greensleeves" Bizet - Entr'acte to Carmen (act 3) Bizet - III. menuet from L'Arlesienne Suite no 2 though i do enjoy the more thundrous, almost martial pieces as well. I would have to say that -"O Fortuna" is my all time favorite...the darkness, the thundering orchestra, the grim lyrics in latin (the translation is incredible in english) - a close 2nd would be "Adagio For Strings" Op.11 so sad, so moving -a close 3rd would be Pachelbel's Canon on a ground in D (hat tip to Ordinary People, when i first heard it) oh, and has anyone heard the London Philharmonic Doing "Symphonic Led Zeppelin"? truly *AMAZING* one of my favorite CD's...a must have for a Zeppelin fan.
