    The 6 best classical musicians not necessarily in order; Vivaldi, Strauss, Ravel, Mozart, Handel, Chopin, Brahms, and my favorite Beethoven.

    european art music is divided up into several eras:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval_music
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance_music
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baroque_music
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_period_(music)
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romantic_music
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20th_century_classical_music

    the most widely listened to is probably Baroque and Classical. hope that helps some. i started playing violin when i was 10 and i still haven't found every piece i like. good luck!

    If you have recently seen V for Vendetta (Which could have been much better :rolleyes: ), the song featured at the end is known as the 1812 overture by [SIZE=-1]Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. It is played at many 4th of July concerts too. This is one of the most well known classical music pieces. Also, various Beethoven symphonies are quite popular and extremely good. I recommend any type of Mozart if you are studying.

    You know that nub on top of PA? yeah there
    Either Mozart's or Verdi's Dies Irae from the requiem mass, youll recognize one of them, both are really good.

    I really like Bolero by Ravel. There's also a piece called Adagio in G minor that I love, but I can't remember the composer right now.
