Good Classical Music

do any of you have suggestions for good classical music?

i like J.S Bach a lot, so far hes my favorite

of the Mozart i've listened to, i'd say i liked 47% of it

i like Bethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Schubert's Ave Maria

i've listened to some others, but im kinda new to it.

Look up Carmina Burana by Carl Orff. It's a mostly minimalist cantata, but has lots of depth, and some pretty badass percussion.

Here's a version that I'm performing in, but it honestly sounds better with full orchestra: [link]

It's even more interesting if you know the original songs! He also composed the soundtrack for Alan Wake.

Ottorino Respighi - The Atalanta Symphony Orchestra recording of his three "Of Rome" works is excellent.

I will also second Holst, Mussorgsky, Brahms and Wagner. Oh, and keep in mind, there is always more Beethoven to hear! He is an obvious example of profound composition for a good reason, and researching his works always provides a good exercise in discovering great music.

A bit of Ravel wouldn't hurt?
