It's hard to say, but I think at the current moment it would have to be La Mer by Debussy... incredible piece of work, and the only composer (besides Vaughan-Williams) to really capture the mood of the sea, in my opinion.

Well, besides Beethoven's 9th, which has already been mentioned, I would have to say Prelude in C# minor by Rachmaninov. Its super chord-heavy.
So here's to living life miserable.
And here's to all the lonely stories that I've told.
Maybe drinking wine will validate my sorrow.
Every man needs a muse and mine could be the bottle.

There's too many to choose from. But after a quick lottery...Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92 is the winner. This piece is one of my favourite musical pieces of all time because it captures pretty much everything in relation to what I like about music.

My favourite film compositions are probably James Horner's main theme from "The Land Before Time" and John Williams' main themes from "Jurassic Park."

I like Bach's Toccata and Fugue, Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain, and Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C# Minor.
