G. Mahler Symphony No. 2
G. Mahler Symphony No. 3
G. Mahler Symphony No. 5
S. Barber Symphony No. 1
N. Rimsky Korsakov Scheherezade
R. Strauss Alpine Symphony
R. Strauss Death & Transfiguration


As a brass player, these are my favorite. But the Adagietto from Mahler's fifth Symphony is pretty much the most beautiful piece of music I have ever heard.

an arrangement of "Salvation is Created" by Tchesnokov
On a Hymnsong of Philip Bliss by Holsinger
third movement of "Rikudim" by van der Roost, but because of the imagery our director interpreted as a "married couple's first dance"
and I actually thought that the first movement of Holst's First Suite was quite beautiful.

I guess this just my personal perceptions of beautiful...

The most beautiful piece EVER written is John Cage's 4'33". Nothing even comes close. I encourage you all to purchase it from iTunes, or find a orchestra play it live. It's just life changing beautiful.

And really, "Horkstow Grange" from Grainger's "Lincolnshire Posy" is just amazing.

Agreed. For added effect, I have 1996 Blue Devils right after it on my playlist. :tup:

I saw one person put down Elsa's. Which is the second best ever.

The best ever is Grainger's Irish Tune. It will change the way you listen to music.

For me, it's The Echo Never Fades by David Gillingham. I played the piano, and while in competition, playing that solo really made me feel the emotion on stage.

I do have to agree that Whatsoever Things is also a very beautiful piece. It's amazing how Camphouse takes one simple theme and inverts it, gives it motion, augments or diminishes it, and etc. Camphouse all around is one of my greatest inspirations for emotional compositions. :bow:
