4. Heroic polonaise- Chopin
5. Appasionata sonata- Beethoven- Mostly mov 3

7. The tempest sonata- Beethoven- Mostly mov 3

Have any others? :)

I wonder if this count as classical?


If so, then this might be my favorite piece. I also like The Chariot of Fire and Cannon in D.

Quite ironic that I listen to Yanni - Nostalgia then go straight to Metallica - Damage Inc afterward. O.O

Ah yes Fantasie-Impromptu is one of the best. I've even tried learning it myself, made some progress.
Also I like Revolutionary √Čtude, Op. 10, no. 12 also by Chopin
I can play quite well Polonaise in A major, Op. 40 No. 1 "Military"
also one of my favourites.
I have heard of Heroic but I can't remember what it sounds like.
EDIT: Aha I know now. How could I forget that melody...

PS: Chopin music is technically from the Romantic Era...

I like all the music from "Rigoletto" (the opera, not the movie). A couple months ago we went to see Beethoven's 9th. I like chopin but I cant tell you the names of any of the pieces :P

I like Toccata and Fugue in D from Bach very much.
Furthermore the Mattheus Passion. And a lot of others.
