Can anyone recommend me some stuff similar to this:



Not just opera, but in the same tone/feeling.

That isn't opera it's lieder (Lied - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Schubert wrote over 600 of them, so good to look at others by him as he is considered the greatest in that area.

looking for best stuff from Stravinsky (besides Rite of Spring), Delius, Sibelius, Dvorak, Bartok, Schopenhauer

and operas besides the obvious (Don Giovanni, Marriage of Figaro etc)

I really like Les Noches from Stravinsky.

As for Bartok. ALL of it except his vocal works are top notch. However, Concerto for Orchestra, Works for piano and drum, and the utterly illuminating "Music For Strings, Percussion & Celesta":



Off the point but, I also really have been liking Berlioz from the astounding 'Symphony Fantastique'.

I personally enjoy Stravinsky's Symphony in C, particularly the first and fourth movements.

Is anyone interested in critiquing a rock guitar arrangement of Mozart Moonlight Sonata. I appreciate your candid opinion.

Anyone have any suggestions for somewhat fast and furious classical piano music? It could either be solo piano or a larger group of instruments where piano is simply the focal point, either is fine. Start this video at about 3:30 to hear an example of the kind of stuff I'm looking for:

Well, you've certainly come to the right thread Jansz! When you said "somewhat fast and furious piano", I immediately thought of several different pieces, all of which are readily available in the iTunes store (or anywhere, really, if you don't use iTunes). I will provide you with the full titles here so you can search for the exact ones.

Ludwig van Beethoven:

Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13, "Pathétique": III. Rondo: Allegro




I'm sure you've heard his "Moonlight" Sonata. Here's the third movement:

Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-Sharp Minor, Op. 27, No. 2, "Moonlight": III. Presto Agitato



Piano Sonata No. 23 in F Minor, Op. 57, "Appassionata": III. Allegro Ma Non Troppo - Presto



Franz Liszt:

Totentanz



The sinister theme in this piece is called the Dies Irae. I can tell you more about it if you're interested.

Sergei Rachmaninov:

Prelude in G Minor, Op. 23, No. 5



I also encourage you to check out two pieces by Robert Schumann:

Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood), Op. 15 and Masquerade Suite. Both of those works contain many short movements (the first one has 13 and the second one has 20), all of which are about 1-2 minutes long, each. Available on iTunes, and YouTube (some of them anyways).

I hope that's the kind of stuff you need!

Oh, they are all piano solos.

These are perfect BD! I'll try and check out all of them. I think the Liszt one is my favorite. And you have me intrigued here—tell me more about the Dies Irae!
