I haven't found salvation in classic music yet, though I know about an inspired piano song "The Heart Asks For Pleasure First" by Michael Nyman.
But I'm open for suggestions!

I like his symphonies most. Weird but most of the time I go towards russian composers... like Tchaikovsky, the aforementioned Shostakovich or maybe Sviridov. Prokofievs symphonies also get me. Generally I'm not into most concertos and the like...

With Orff I found that digging out more of his operas is kinda hard... however Carmina Burana is all over the web for some reason.

John Williams (although I don't thinks he counts as a classical composer).

I like Jack Wall's work.
He does computer games, yes, but it's classical none-the-less.

Despite his music being quite cool, I can never shake the feeling that each time I listen to many tracks of his, it's all a single track. It's like he's composing the same piece over and over since star wars.

Couldn't say I know any (apart from the obvious ones), nor listen to them. Though i did read an article about a Spanish farm that made cows listen to Mozart while milking, which resulted in significantly more milk output...

Baroque:
Vivaldi

Classical:
Joseph Haydn

Romantic:
Rachmaninov(especially his Piano Concerto No. 2)/Chopin(Rain Drop Prelude)
Though both churned great work out.

Contemporary:
None in particular.




Personally I find Mozart and Beethoven over used. Mozart himself was the closest thing you got to a pop musician back in the day. He didn't really compose what he felt but rather what other people wanted to hear.

Beethoven is also a bit over-used. He's was also very fussy. I'm playing Beethoven's 'Scherzo and Trio' for my Grade 8 piano exams this year, and it's the first time I've come across a music score where all the dynamics(crescendos, diminuendos, staccatos etc.) were all already put in, leaving nothing for the player to interpret for themselves. Which I personally find a bit restraining.

Just my 2 cents.

Beethoven's emperor concert, surely that IS a masterpiece?

But yeah, I guess those big names are already completely explored. But I'm more or less just starting out to explore the classical world ^^

But it takes a long time to really find out what I like as most pieces you need to hear quite a few times before they settle in.

I must be a noob, because I really like Ein madchen oder ein weibchen From the magic flute. And it's the most catchy part of the whole opera ^^ I mean, you should somehow like Mahler or something, but nooo I rather have this light stuff haha

I like all kinds, don't know that many names really.
I don't listen to classical music much but a one list could be:

Bach
Tchaikovsky
Prokofiev
Saint Saens
Ravel

Bit random but Bach on number one foo sure. Was suprised to find noone mentioned Bach Is it cause its to obvious?
I like the translations of his work to other instruments too. The uneasy depth of the violin stuff gets soft and pleasing when its done on guitar.

If John Williams counts, then I say Philippe Vachey.

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.
