    hey I've heard songs here and there that I liked from the classical genre, and I always meant to check it out further, but never got around to it. I know danny elfman made that tales from the crypt theme that rocks, and I love the next generation star trek theme.

    can anybody recommend some good classical music for me to check out?

    Excellent list. I would add some Paganini, Chopin and Johann Strauss II to it. :up:

    Vivaldi's Four Seasons are among my favorites, as is anything Wagner. Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain is awesomeness as well.

    Rimsky-Korsakov, most famous for "Flight Of The Bumblebee", is well worth a listen as well. :up:

    i like swan lake but mostly because of loom, and in the hall of the mountain king because of jet set willy. and what ever the docking music was in elite. edit: the blue danube

    Gustav Holst's Mars is also fairly popular and was in the original fotage shown for x-men 2.

    For Wagner, I prefer Kinder-Katechismus. The piece was based upon a lyric he wrote for his children to sing to their mother on her birthday.

    I play the trombone, and when I was in school, I had a private teacher that went to UGA, she could play that on the trombone.

    I find that movie soundtracks can be fantastic. Theres a good CD called classic FM at the Movies. Failing that Debussy is good, as is Howard Shore and John Williams

    I'm a trumpet player and played that piece in concert when I was in college. It was damn hard. I can't even imagine playing it on a trombone. She must have been incredible.

    -Brahms Symphonies (especially the third is one of my all time favorites) and the German Requiem

    -Anything from Beethoven (He's GOD... look at Missa Solemnis, Diabelli Variations for piano...)

    -Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung (4 operas of 3 hours each... and not precisely little italian operas, but heavy german sheeyat, lol....)

    -Mahler's Symphonies

    -Bruckner's Te Deum

    -The very underrated Busoni Piano Concerto op. 39 (85 minutes long, 4 percussionists and triple winds needed plus a finale with a six voice male chorus singing a text about music from Öhlenschlager's Aladdin)

    -Prokofiev's 2nd and 3rd piano concertos, both violin concertos, Peter and the Wolf and Romeo and Juliet.

    -Shostakovich's symphonies.

    -Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Petrushka and The Firebird

    -Holst's The Planet's

    -Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra

    -Richard Strauss: ANYTHING

    -Orff's Carmina Burana

    -Ligeti's Piano Etudes

    -Pederecki's Saint Luke Passion

    -John Adams' Harmonielehre

    That's about what I can think of at the moment.
