    Cool! There are so many different styles, hard to pick just a few pieces. Beethoven's 3rd 'Eroica' is great, maybe the best. Mozart's late symphonies, like no 39 or 41. Hard to beat those. Bach's orchestral suites are incredible beautiful and spiritual.

    Maybe those are my top three if I am forced to decide.

    I got into classical music by listening to Strawinsky's Firebird. I thought it sounded so magical.

    Chamber music: Mozart's quartets dedicated to Haydn. Refreshing!

    Baroque music: Albinoni, light and emotional, very Alpha, maybe... Händel's Rinaldo.

    If she likes romantic, then Wagner can be interesting. And also Bruckner, although he can be a little heavy. Doesn't get more romantic than that.

    You said she likes Mahler's 5:th. The Adagietto movement is famous. Probably the most soulful thing ever written, it's almost scary. Mahler has great orchestration, incredible sound, but he is also almost too complex for me, I feel, so I haven't listened that much to him.

    I'm thinking that Mozart is probably the best. Some of his music captures the spirit of life, like in his symphony no 41, I mentioned above. One doesn't really expect anything deep from him, and yet the music has that impact.

    @Tallmo I can get you into Mahler if you want. The Leonard Bernstein versions are probably going to be the most "accurate" since I've never found a bunch of recordings of Mahler conducting Mahler, even if people might otherwise think the Bernstein versions are the pop versions or something. Do get into Mahler, I have two recordings of Das Lied von der Erde (which is probably the worst thing to start on, it's sung all the way through but the singing just adds more complexity on top of the instrumentals instead of it being like most of the Des Knaben Wunderhorn songs found in the symphonies where there's at least a sort of "conventional" melody to follow and the instrumentals seldom get louder than the singer.) I think this is how you get into Mahler: you start on the first symphony and you work your way to the last symphony. That's how I did it when I first heard some Mahler and liked it at least.

    Default Bach - Concerto for Violin and Oboe in c minor, BWV 1060a

    Love this:

    ........ G. ........... K. ............... C ........ H ........ E ...... S ........ T ...... E ........ R ........ T ........ O ........ N ........


    "Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the Church, is often labeled today as fundamentalism... Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and swept along
    by every wind of teaching, looks like the only
    attitude acceptable to today's standards."

    thanks for the advice. Listening through the symphonies from no 1 is a good idea. There's also a practical problem with these huge romantic works. One has to have peace and be well rested. Not tired after work in the evening. But maybe one symphony every Sunday. I can start tomorrow.

    But i like the 5th so far, parts of it. Although its hard to pay attention through the whole work. One cool thing: The very slow melody from the Adagietto reappears towards the end of the symphony but now faster and in a happier mood. It's like some integration process has taken place. Took me a while to notice that. But I'll get to the 5th in five weeks.

    @Tallmo I feel like listening to symphonies is one thing I like to do when I'm tired like reading books or watching a movie but then maybe that's just me. As long as you're not having to listen to music for school or work or whatever I feel like it's a relaxing activity even if it's long, complex, and emotionally turbulent late Romantic music. You get absorbed in it and by the time it's over you're not tired anymore. That might not work if you're not currently into that kind of music at all though.
