Favorite Classical Music Standard?
September 2, 2015 11:47pm CST
Glad this question was asked. Gave me a chance to search for the musical composition on YouTube and found links to several videos which can be explored later. Most people think Mozart or Beethoven or Bach. My pick? Debussy: Clair de lune Although? This is the "standard" per Europeans or Americans. - Are these composers so well-known in the non-Western countries? - If not, who are the revered classical composers? (tsn)

I listen a lot of chamber and piano music, and it is a hard choice. If you were asking for a symphony, my preferred is Brahms 4th ; Beethoven op. 18 n° 1 for a string quartet ; for 2 hands piano, Satie Gymnopédie n°1 ; and for 4 hands piano Brahms again with his Hungarian dance n° 5. But it is really a hard choice, and I regret to have to forget Chopin, Mussorgsky and Schumann for the piano. And I forgot opera : it would be without any hesitation Bizet Carmen for me.
