That Ones A Classic!
Classical music that you love…
Dale stole one of my all-time favourites (O Fortuna from Carmina Burana), so I’ll have to share a few of my other favourites instead…
I adore Mozart, so I have to include at least one of his beautiful compositions. There are so many to choose from, but I’ve gone with Symphony 40 in G Minor – a stunning piece, I think you’ll agree!
Another classical piece I cannot hear often enough is Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saëns. Those not familiar with the title may recognise it as the theme tune to Jonathan Creek (which is a show I love!). Many, many years ago I played the violin and it was this piece that made me love that instrument so much.
Finally, a most wonderful piano-led piece – 18th Variation by Rachmaninoff, which featured in the film Somewhere in Time (which is a lovely film, by the way, and one everyone should watch!).
So, there you go – three classical tunes that really do it for me! Which ones make your list of top classical hits?
