  1. 1:55 this is actually chopins 2nd sonata 3rd movement the funeral march

  2. It’s actually Chopin’s 2nd Piano Sonata in Bm, 3rd movement “funeral March”

  3. Where is the "Rite of Spring" ??????? There was a RIOT at the first performance! People were shocked.

  4. The chopin is wrong. That's from his Second Sonata, not Concerto.

  5. 3:12. This guy looks like the Asian equivalent of Jimmy Page.

  6. Bach – Toccata and Fugue in D minor

  7. Some of my other favourites as a metalhead/progger (I know not all of these are strictly classical, but still)
    Debussy – Clair De Lune
    Debussy – Reverie
    Gershwin – Rhapsody In Blue
    Rachmaninoff – Concerto No. 2 C minor
    Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 1 E minor
    Mozart – Piano Concerto No. 23 A major
    Beethoven – Moonlight Sonata Mvmt 3
    Vivaldi – Summer G minor III Presto

  8. That's actually chopin sonata no. 2

  9. Bach is definitely a metal head from the 18th century. A bass guitarist for sure.

  10. Where is Verdi's Requiem Dies Irae??? That's really "metal"!

  11. Wait, No Sacred duPrintemps? Threnody for Victims of Hiroshima? Music for strings Celeste and Percussion? no Christopher Rouse? Bach's A minor prelude and Fugue (the Great),

  12. Ludvig van Beethoven's Symphony no. 5 🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘

  13. Here I am thinking to myself “alright well Rite of Spring is gonna be number 1”… come to finish the videos and there’s NO STRAVINSKY AT ALL!!! 😵😵😵

  14. One great classical masterpiece missing here is Night on Bald Mountain.

  15. 0:39 YES YES YES YES YES YES!

  16. Shostakovich was a Romantic, way past the classical era.

  17. The 3rd Movement from Moonlight (Beethoven) is metal af.

  18. WHAT
    CHOPIN'S "CONCERTO"
    NO
    SO MUCH NO
    IT'S THE THIRD MOVEMENT… FROM A SONATA
    A SONATA
    NOT
    A
    CONCERTO

    SONATA OP. 35, THIRD MOVEMENT

    Sorry, but that pissed me off.
