As we continued talking, I learned that she most enjoys the orchestral repertoire. With little forethought, these are the five pieces I recommended in the produce section of Wal-Mart.
- Piano Concerto #3 - Rachmaninoff
- Symphony #1 - Mahler
- Symphony #7 - Beethoven
- Adagio for Strings - Barber
- The Planets - Holst
What orchestral works would you have included in your list of recommendations for a musical novice (assuming they have already been exposed to several of the "major" works)? I'd love to hear your recommendations in the comment section below.
