If you are into slow moving music check out anything by Gabriel faure. I love cello versions of his songs (my fav is Elegie Op. 24 done on cello)

Check out the classical music for beginners link below, it may be just what you're looking for. It breaks the music down into the different periods and gives recommendations from each, which can be downloaded or bought from Amazon. Excellent little resource for starting a classical music collection.

Manny that is a pretty good observation. I never thought of that, but the bigger the name the better the music. It's true you should start off with big names like Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, his music is very beautiful, and he has a big name with many letters to it, and avoid small names like Carl Orff, and whatever you do, do not listen to Carmina Burana.

Hello blue,

Classical repertory is so huge ..
I personaly recommend you :

Bach's B minor mass
Mozart's C minor mass for 2 choirs and orchestra ( the kyrie is fantastic )
Ravel's piano concerto in G ( slow part )
Barber's "adagio"

emotion, emotion..

If you like Philip Glass, you should check out Max Richter.

I'm just listening to the Kyrie now, and it's honestly incredible. I loved the choir, and the overall power of the music was unreal. Thank you so much for the recommendation, I'll check out the to others very soon.

Chopin's a good place to start. For one, he's a cool bro. Secondly, I think some of his best pieces are 'Winter Wind" and "The Ocean". Romantic music is really dramatic and gives me cool chills sometimes. Haydn's a strange bro, he's got strange music; but it's all really good anyway. Handel's music is really soothing. I like his "The Water Music" collection;I have it on CD. If you like opera, you should check out the popular Mozart ones, like The Marriage or Figaro and The Magic Flute. Carmen(by Georges Bizet) is a really good opera too. Stuff that gets stuck in your head easily has got to be Fur Elise(Beethoven), The Four Seasons(Vivaldi), Canon in D(Pachelbel), and the little clip of a symphony, Ode to Joy(Mozart). You can even hear those some of songs playing when the ice cream truck comes rolling around.

Blue, I recommend listening to any J.S. Bach piece. To me, each piece has it's own relaxing qualities. It's great to listen to if you're feeling stressed!
