One of the first real songs I learned to play on the piano. It does bring a feeling of melancholy.

Chopin Nocturnes, anyone? Try any recording by Guiomar Novares

For me, and I hope this doesn't piss anybody off, it's more a respect or awe for the talent and ability than the actual sound of the piece. IN other words, I am not awed or moved by the rising or falling scale but I am by the speed and fluid movement that brings it alive.

This fine fellow (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=nti1sBqJfmg) makes a grand job of contemporary composer Ludovico Einaudi's Le Onde.

Wow. What lovely music. This album has a gorgeous feel to it. I especially like Questa Notte and the beautiful but short Canzone Popolare.

Moonlight Sonata Makes me CryMe, too. As does the adagietto from Mahler's 5th symphony.

The Adagio for Strings is always a heartbreaker for me...

I've been in a Mozart phase for about twenty years. However, as of late I've been listening to a lot of Brahms and now Holst with his Planets. I can't get over Mars-Bringer of War. Fabulous piece.

Ooh, Chopin's Sonata No. 2 for Piano is good and so are Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini and Vocalise. The theme to Schindler's List by John Williams is haunting.

Oh yes! Mars sends chills up my spine. I agree, fabulous piece. I also think it's neat to hear the stark contrast between Mars and Venus. Such a huge shift in mood.
