So there's been a lot of talk about modern music and some talk about video game OSTs in this topic, but from what I remember reading through here a few months ago, there wasn't really much talk about classical music. So I want to change that.
I'm interested what some of your favorite composers are from this period (just for clarity, I'm talking about classical music in a general sense, be it baroque or impressionalism) and maybe link one piece made by them if the composer in question isn't that well known.
So for me, I seem to like several Russian composers, as I like Peter Tschaikovsky, known for the balletts Swanlake and Nutcracker (Nutcracker Suite), and Modest Mussorgsky. From Mussorgsky you might have heard Night on Bald Mountain
or Pictures at an Exhibition
Also to get them out of the way and because I like them as well, Bach, Beethoven and Mozart have also composed a lot of great pieces. I also think that they're well known enough that I don't really need to link something by them.
