    I'm not sure if this exactly fits in here, but hey, it sounds epic!

    My favorites:

    Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto #2 (C Minor)

    (Can play the music right from Wikipedia)

    Brahms Violin Concerto in D

    (Links in page to youtubes)

    Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings
    (Link is 1st movement, whole thing is good)
    (I like just about everything by Tchaikovsky though!)

    Something a bit more modern, and forum appropriate:
    Secret song link
    (This whole 2-disk set is awesome - I highly recommend giving it all a listen. My favorite track is probably "No Matter the Cost")

    Since nurman posted an Uematsu piece, I have to as well:
    To Zanarkand

    John Williams is good, but Nobou Uematsu is better! :whistling:

    Here is another piece from Thomas Bergersen's upcoming first commercial album Illusions, "Promise." How he so consistently makes music this powerful and moving is a mystery yet unsolved.

    Schroeder playing the second movement of Beethoven's Pathetique piano sonata (a bit shortened):



    The gods are crying. Wonderfully played, Schroeder.

    “Sometimes, through the window which opens onto the garden, strands of melody waft upwards from Chopin, and mingle with the songs of nightingales and the fragrance of roses. He never stops working.”

    The most epic Christmas song!



    I'm moved to tears when hearing it at the right time. Epic! I wish I was a child again...

    A merry Christmas to everybody.

    That drummer is playing pretty well, but I think it doesn't mix that well with the Barber of Sevilla.

    Mozart made a couple of kinky or obscene compositions. See here for a complete list of his known compositions: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Köchel-Verzeichnis

    You probably mean this:



    Sorry for posting a link involving a bunch of Germans singing it, I always get German links first on my Youtube account :whistling:.

    It's among my favourite choir pieces, but I don't think that it's better than Wagner's Pilgerchor. It's a bit too much like Mozart IMO, but that's just my personal taste.

    Nice thread. Here's a few that haven't been mentioned.

    Couple excerpts from Mahler's 2nd Symphony:




    Arnold Bax's Tintagel, great intro:



    Can't have an epic thread without a coda to a Bruckner Symphony (slow build up to the climax):

    This is my favourite of them, but the rest is pretty cool too.

    A wonderous place youtube is to find gems of musical art.

    Johann Sebastian Bach Cello suite #1 [Prelude] (BWV 1007)




    Johann Sebastian Bach Cello suite #5 [Prelude] (BWV 1011)
    Some searching on youtube has yielded no result,
    in finding a good lute version of this piece.

    Beethoven's 3rd symphony "Eroica", the grand finale, my absolute favourite from Beethoven.



    This is the greatest ending of anything which has ever been composed (2:30+ and in particular, 4:50+), it knocks you off the chair when hearing it for the first time! The finale of the 9th can compare with it, but nothing else even begins at that! Turn the volume up! And have a look at the contrabass player, that's Rock'n Roll!

    Haydn: Everything is different from today!

    After Beethoven died, many composers didn't dare to compose symphonies for some time because of Beethoven's mind-blowing creations, fearing the inevitable comparisons with them at that time. This is one of the reasons why!

    Composed by Wagner, of course.
