Can anyone recommend romantic classical music?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Looking for classical music that is relaxing and romantic for a nice sunny spring day at the park. Classical guitar comes to mind, 

Anyone can recommend a good album? What I am really trying to avoid is mostly the famous classical artists who you'd hear all the time anyways. Want to find some gems of romantic classical music.

Rachmaninov - Piano Concerto No. 2, particularly the second movement. 

 

This is a link to another recording of the same piece:

I know Rachmaninov is well know, but I couldn't miss the opportunity of sharing one of my favourites.

 

 

Others will come to mind later.

Try this work by Delius:

This work by Vaughan Williams is an oldy but a goody:

Good recommendations. Never heard of Delius but I like him. Added a few new artists to my collection but not sure about how they rank on the romantic side. I already have quite a few Debussy albums, never thought of them as romantic though :D

 

Any classical guitar recommendations?

Try this guitar concerto by Rodrigo - Probably more melancholic than romantic, but still a very moving piece:

Not exactly classical but...gitarist Al Di Meola, album "Orange and Blue"

 

 

I also highly recommend Shiv Kumar Sharma's music. He plays a northern Indian instrument santoor. Album "Elements: Water"

@W0lfd0g

 

Thats a track I heard before but could never find. Thanks, it is a great piece, I actually really like this style. Any other music in this vein? It is such a great piece.

 

@Mutabor

 

Some really exotic recommendations. They are pretty good, not sure about romantic but I will definitely add them to my collection. Particularly, I really love the presence of the guitar in Orange and Blue. What kind of music is that? Its very good and different from the stuff I have. I also like how it possesses so many unique elements and a deep bass. 

 

Great recommendations so far, I love discovering music like this :D

I enjoy immensely the three CDs of Paganini's Work for Guitar and Violin by Moshe Hammer and Norbert Kraft.

Volume 1

Check these out - Two versions of a work by Elgar.  This first version is a guitar arrangement and the second is the original:

If you're looking for a great classical guitar music, then try Julian Bream's Ultimate Guitar Collection.

 

2 CD's worth of classical greats at a nice price. The 2nd CD is devoted to romantic Spanish guitar classics, which is perfect for a sunny day.

 

I haven't heard this particular set, but it contains most of Julian's "hits" from the past, and he is (was?) an excellent interpreter and player.

This is late english renaissance music, but very beautiful.  The original version is for lute, but it works well on guitar too.
