There's no way I can stop at one! Rach 3, for it's otherworldly beauty and mind-blowing magnificence; Beethoven's symphonies 6, 7, and 9; Bach's Brandenburg no. 4; Shostakovich's piano concerto no. 2; Barber's violin concerto; and, of course, Mozart's "Jupiter" symphony. These are all equally excellent, and particularly recommend attending a live performance of the Beethoven 9 and Rach 3, if you get a chance. The energy and brilliance that radiate from the stage is absolutely transporting!

I like the works of Johann Strauss II, remind me of the circus atmosphere;
The Four Seasons (Autumn, Spring, Summer, Winter) by Antonio Vivaldi;
The famous Symphony No.5 - Beethoven & First Movement by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart;
Vienna Blood;
Worth mentioning: Ride of the Valkyrie, Richard Wagner - numbers of old movies using this classical piece, Toccata And Fugue, Johann Sebastian Bach - many old horror movies using this song.

Ahh, almost forgot it, Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, remind me about how well Tom & Jerry mimicking this into parody. On some sense, Tom & Jerry's ending version sounds better.

The Aria from Bach's Goldberg Variations (played by Glenn Gould -of course- or Maria Tipo!)

Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel. It's such a beautiful masterpiece. I absolutely love how all the instruments harmonize with one another to create such a powerful piece, just like a cannon.

So many! The first composer that pops into my mind is Tchaikovsky. I love how enchanting his music is.

Mozart is always reliable for me, especially Piano Sonata No. 15 in C.
There're also Chopin's Piano compositions (too many to mention).
Also Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens.
