How about Mozart's Symphony #41, the Jupiter Symphony. It was the first cassette (yes, a cassette!) of classical music I ever bought way back when. I listened to it over and over again! :D

Are you referring to the full 15 minutes or just the last 5 that everybody seems to play? I like to listen to the full thing. It's only when you hear it in its entirety that you appreciate the crescendo more :)

Vivaldi's Spring and Pachelbel's Canon in D are also two of my favourites.

We fade away, but vivid in our eyes
A world is born again that never dies.
