|Rec Me Essential Classical/study Music|
My college year started Tuesday, and so I'm looking for more study-optimal music. Classical, electronic and film scores work great, although the latter can lead thoughts to the movie (and therefore others as well). Basically, rec me any essential classical, stuff similar to what's here, or just awesome music with few or no vocals/lyrics. Post rock doesn't work cause, well I've only found one album I really like.
The Four Seasons
Cello Suite No.1, Prelude in G Major
\"Pathetique\" Sonata, I
|4||Symphony No. 5|
In the Halls of the Mountain King
Prelude No. 4 in E minor (\'Suffocation\')
The Rite of Spring
Also Sprach Zarathustra
|11||Tchaikovsky, Pyotr Il\'yich|
Piano Concerto No. 1 In B-Flat Minor, Op. 23, I
(The instrumentals for the whole album)
(and most of Discovery)
Right Here, Right Now
"Zion baby! It's obviously the city where the last remaining humans live, and the robots are coming to kill us. Doesn't that just make you wanna party?!"
|Sigur Ros, Phillip Glass (the -Qatsi Trilogy in particular), most of Steve Reich's stuff, Thomas Newman's work on Road to Perdition, and Clint Mansell's score for The Fountain have all served me well in the past.|
|7 is probably my favorite Pianist of all time.|
|Sod off. Explosions in the Sky is amazing.|
|Johann Sibelius is great for Studying, as is Antonin Dvorak. Maybe try Dvorak's 9th symphony.|
|Brian Eno's ambient stuff is great for studying. |

|Search anything by Christopher Parkening, arguably the best living classical guitarist. He's got a lot of top-notch recordings.|
|if he's a classical guitarist and doesn't have a mustache he sucks.|

IDM is the way to go for studying. It excites the area of the brain which makes you remember things thus it makes you study better...and BoC fucking rocks so win win.
though I do believe "Classical" music does the same thing.
|In my music class this week we listened to The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten. It was pretty awesome and quite relaxing in spots. |
|John Williams - John Williams Plays Bach|
|Tchaikovsky is my favorite composer of all time.|
On a more relevant note... 'Miles Davis - In a Silent Way' is awesome study music
