As far as composers go, Gershwin in one of my favorites (I was in tears when I couldn't go see the Gershwin Tribute at the Sydney Opera House). I just love his jazzy, very
NYC style of music. Rhapsody in Blue
being my favorite composition ever. Accept no subsitutes.
I'm also quite fond of Tchaikovskys work. The Nutcracker Suite, Firebird Suite and Swan Lake I am very partial to in particular, I also like Beethoven's Fifth, Sixth and Ninth Symphonies (Ode to Joy
being my second favorite classical piece).
I also like Edvard Griegs work. Such as the Pyer Gynt and Pianon Concerto.
As for individual pieces, I like Dance of the Hours, The Pines of Rome, Toccata in Feuge in D minor and Pomp and Circumstance. I also like works the feature a heavy use of the harpsichord
, such as Sonata in D minor (Scarletti)
I feel like I should listen to mor Chopin and Mozart, any reccomended pieces?
