Listening Recommendations to Get to Know Classical Music

There truly is a mountain of beautiful music in the world to choose from to listen to. Here I want to give you a relatively short list of pieces which are classics, even by classical music standards. Each one would be perfect for family listening time or for a class. Bonus points if you look up the part you or your student is learning, and follow along with the part or score. Please use a high quality speaker system or, as a last resort, earphones. These are each individually gorgeous pieces I love to play and to listen to again and again. I hope your year is filled with the glory of great music and the inspiration this provides.
