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
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

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:






"Do you laugh at jealousy?"

"No, I don't even laugh at seasickness! I happen to regard jealousy as the seasickness of passion."
