This is the correct answer :)
Tchaikovsky, Bartok, Debussey (currently learning Claire de lune) are all very nice for Piano, but Chopin definitly is the best for me, due to the sheer imersity of his pieces... they all have so much feeling.
I am a rather poor pianst at best, Chopin is far beyond me, +++Rep to anyone who can manage Fantasie Impromptu.
I was learning the piece by Chopin from the movie 'The Pianist' the one that gets played at the start and the end, however could anyone tell me the name of the piece he plays to the german soldier?
Thanks alot, glad to see there are some other classical music likers.

I've always been a fan of Gershwin for pure listenabliity. (american in paris, blue, etc)
Chopin is also good stuff
with violin there are lot of really good ones, Debussey, Saint Saens and Faure's sonatas are nice

Ahh chopin - I have a pianist friend who can play one of his Mazurka's (don't know if there is only one or many?) - I think it sounds very haunting and cool.
There used to be a great game called Elite (old school) and it had cool classical music on it - baba yaga, in the hall of the mountain king (think that was the name of it) and some wagner pieces of course.
Come to think of it, it actually might've been Elite 2 that had some of those pieces on it..but anyway... :mblah05:
P.S Claire de lune is awesome.

This is also a good one: Dvorak - The new world.
On a dark winter sunday afternoon if you have 3-4 hours free nothing beats Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner. It doesn't suit a sunny day and a light mood though.

Whoever mentioned Philip Glass has good taste... I recently played one of his pieces for a school music performance assessment, did ok... If anyone's interested, it's the theme from the 'Truman Show', called 'Truman Sleeps'. Currently listening to 100000 People.
Yeah, Clair de lune is awesome, but I hit a wall today... Chopin must have had the most deformed hands...
