I know very little classical music, but Ludovico Einaudi is a particular favourite.

I've liked every classical song I've played in symphonic band and stuff I've heard off of my Star Wars soundtrack. I'm curious about this genre of music, but I don't know anything about it.

Anyone recommend any good composers? Albums?
Many film soundtracks are full of good (semi- or neo)classical music.
I like the soundtack albums for "The Mission", "Cinema Paradiso", "Seven Years In Tibet", and many others. Plus J.S. Bach (the Brandenberg Concertos is a good place to start) and W.A. Mozart-the later symphonies and the opera overtures (plus many others).

I am a big fan of Philip Glass and Michael Nyman. I recently discovered minimalism and really things that most of the time all the piano strings.

A man before his time, I recommend Erik Satie.

Domenico Scarlatti is an astounding pianist/composer. Highly recommended anybody look into.
