    ah bin - just start with those like 20 Top Favourites... those normally are a compilation of usual favs. then u can work ur way from there.

    my personal favs are usually baroque/chamber music. JS Bach is usually on my must-buys.

    I have a thing for Beethoven: my fav is still his Symphony No 6 (Pastoral) -- I always stop and savour whenever I catch a whiff of it playing from anywhere. (I also like #9, #5, #7, #3 )

    Some other favs:
    - Violin Concerto -- Beethoven, Brahms, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky
    - Piano Concerto: Tchaikovsky's #1, Rachmaninoff #3

    On getting started:
    - Symphony 92.4; and use the "What's Playing" link to figure out the names of the piece being played.
    - Walt Disney's Fantasia, the original one, has a great way in interpreting some great music.

    On a slightly different tack:
    - Bohemian Rhapsody is good as well

    Many years ago there was a series of albums called "Hooked on Classics"...which are medlies of famous and popular classic melodies set to a disco (!) beat. I listened to them before I listened to more serious classical music. Still have the CDs and now let my son listen to them. It is easy for him to understand and when he hears the real piece he would be interested.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    yep...remember listening to hooked on classics, as well as switched on bach (played on a moog synthesiser by wendy/william carlos). fab!

    Moonlight was my exam piece

    Chopin was the 2nd piece ..........

    they both "sound emotive" but are to be treated with a complete different approach.

    Yup, but the 3rd movement for moonlight is quite difficult. How long did you get to master it, as in similar to those recorded piantist's standard. Any idea on how to master it?
