Default What are your favorite orchestrated pieces?

I'm looking for new orchestral-type songs. All I listen to are Apocalyptica, Beethoven, and John Williams. Any song ideas that would open my eyes a little more? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Listen to the score for The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, or nearly anything else by Ennio Morricone to start with. It's pretty easy to get into, and that's how I got started with Orchestral music.

I will have to check that out. I like many orchestrated pieces though. I have been working on some myself.

How about the soundtrack from Gladiator. Though not all orchestral over the course of the album it does have its moments such as The Battle. A very exciting orchestral piece. Very Germanic.

I'm partial to Graeme Revell. He composes fantastic (IMO) movie scores. The musical score for "The Crow" is one of his best.

I believe I can give a little insight on this thread:

If you want really amazing orchestrated music, the 1st thing you have to ask yourself is from what period of music do you prefer:

Baroque: Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, etc.
Classical: Mozart, Hayden, Piccinni, etc.
Romantic: Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Verdi, etc.
20th Century: Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Debussy, etc.

The best thing to do is to listen to samples of each of the above composers, then target in on which period you like the most. As for me, my favourite pieces include:

Beethoven's 9th Symphony
Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto #3
Mahler's 5th Symphony
Shostakovich's 24 Preludes and Fugues

Of the above, Beethoven is from The Romantic Period while Rachmanioff, Mahler, and Stostakovich are all from late Romantic/20th Century period

Hope this is a starting point: Once you enter the rhelm of Classical Music, there's seriously so much variation and pieces available that it takes more than a lifetime to truly enjoy...

I most definitely like Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, etc. The scores from the last X-Men was pretty good too.

The thing that San Fransisco orchestra did with Metallica is sweet!

Their orchestra leader guy knows all about metal. It was sweet!
