This thread most definitely deserves to take off. There's a lifetime of good work in the broad field of classical/art music. Which makes recommendations difficult at times.

Here's a quick sampling of a few pieces that I adore.




(This is the track I hear in my head when I imagine a Slaughterhouse 5 adaptation by PTA, scored by Jonny Greenwood. Actually I wonder if JG listened to this for inspiration for his Shasta Fay Hepworth track on IV- some interesting similarities)



There are loads of guides on the internet on where to start with classical. Best thing to do is find a few radio classical radio stations, tune into them when you're cleaning/driving/studying, and you'll probably come across something will change your life.

Ludovico Einaudi, Debussy, Chopin, Rachmaninoff
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.

Erik Satie, because if you like to read compositions, his sheet music is as lyrical and humorous as a Mark Twain piece.

Great thread! A few favorites:






If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk
