Bizet, Puccini, Poulenc, Jacob, Hummel, Copeland, Mozart, Rossini, Schubert, Strav, SOME Tchaik, Howard Shore, (secretly) Ravel... and many others that I can't think of right now, I think.

2. something can help me identifying this song?:  http://www.thehydetube.com/Mr.ARMOS-89.html

Shostakovich string quartet No. 8, second movement i think.

While we're talking chamber, Ravel String Quartet and Barber's Summer Music for wind quintet.

I love Grieg's "Peer Gynt Suite"
The parts I've heard anyway: Morning, Anitra's Dance and Hall of the Mountain King.

I like other classical music, I am not sure of a favourite, though.

I have such mixed feelings towards Peer Gynt. I've heard it butchered by high school bands and orchestras so many times... but when played properly it's still rad. Hmm.

Thankfully, I've never heard it butchered. I've heard the Apocalyptica version, and I love cellos but I prefer orchestral versions of it.

I haven't really listened to orchestral/symphonic music much lately, with the exception of the soundtracks to The Lives of Others and Final Fantasy XII.

...has anyone mentioned Gustav Holst? 'Jupiter' is quite possibly my favourite piece of classical music, although that's a hard call to make with Elgar's Nimrod, Jenkins' Adiemus, Copland's Rodeo, and almost everything written by Beethoven or Tschaikovsky.

I should get my classical CDs out again :)

Final Fantasy XII.
Final Fantasy!  :D

Nobuo Uematsu = WIN. Not sure if he did twelve though, I wasnt that into twelve, really. I like the older ones better.

FFIX soundtrack <3 love all the variations of the Kuja themes.

A darn good tune....  :) 

Much better on pipe-organ than played by the whole orchestra, though. (IMHO)

Me too. I loved VII and VIII the most. The soundtrack to XII wasn't done by Nobou, though, which makes it much more symphonic than the melodic music of the great Nobou. I had the luxury of attending a concert in Stockholm where they played lots of Final Fantasy music and I swear I must have spent half the time crying, it was so beautiful. Plus, there are those memories of 15-year old me singing along to 'Eyes on Me' and 'Melodies of Life'...

If I ever learn an instrument, I want to learn some of the Final Fantasy pieces. Including Kuja's Theme. Which I know off by heart, sadly. (Kuja! He's pretty, even if pyscho :))

anywho, everybody fucking listens to Mars.  *rolls eyes*  i swear, it's almost as overplayed as Bartok's Romanian Dances (which can now be found in football video games).  you can even find Mars sampled in Blame Canada, from South Park the Movie's soundtrack.

frankly, i really love Holst's Jupiter, Saturn (especially), and Mercury.


Also, Copland's Rodeo is awesome, and nobody ever mentions it.  It's sad, because it's great American-style music.

I read from pages three onward but not the first page. Sorry, I was in a hurry. I'll try not to do that again in future.

I don't actually like 'Mars' unless it is either live or loud, preferably both. And I fell in love with Rodeo when they played it on Classic FM back when I listened to radio regularly. 'Hoedown' instantly caught my attention.
