What works of music have put you (on the verge of/..) to tears?

Many in my case, such as Bach's Prelude No.2 from WTK 1, and my beloved Mozart Requiem Mass (* sigh * Very Happy)

but recently, I've been INSANELY listening to the following, with which this has occurred:

Bach-Busoni
Chorale in G Minor "Nun Komm der Heiden Heiland"
(Horowitz ~ ever thankful for having gotten this recording Wink)

&

Pergolesi's Stabat Mater (again, I know. lol)

it's so addictingly depressing, if that makes any sense at all (without sounding too nuts, lol) Rolling Eyes

so anyway, just post whichever moving sad piece that's either made you cry, or on the verge of tears...

Wink Smile


Of course everyone is going to expect these from me...

Chopin's 4 Ballades, Barcarolle Fantasie... etc..

Well, I must admit that I have been listening to some classical & baroque era lately! Smile

Some that I've really liked and have made me *ermm* emotional. Wink...

- Four seasons by Vivaldi
- Ave Maria (after Bach)
- Brandenburg Concerto No 4 (BWV 1049) (!!)
- Some random Meditation from "Thais" thing I'm addicted to
- Garcarole from "The tales of Hoffman"
and a few more...

A lot of Baroque sends me into some weird analysis of life, I really enjoy it. Smile

Proud or not? Cool lol
---

More romantic-wise I've really been loving the Songs Without Words, so beautiful! Crying or Very sad

That is all! Smile

Canon in D.
Ballade in G Minor.
Hungarian Rhapsody No. 8.
Piano Concerto No. 3 in D Minor.
Rondo Capriccicio.
Moonlight Sonata 1st.
Pathetique 2nd.
Nocturne No. 1 in B-flat Minor.
Impromptu in A-flat Op. 90 No. 4 (I think)

Beethoven Cativina slow movement

An eyebrow fell into my my eye when I was listening to Chopin's Waltz Op. 70 No. 3 (in G flat major). And that's it.

ha Mozart's Requiem is pretty popular Wink

how could not but love it? Cool

I started tearing at piano lessons this morning. Dang Bach and his extravagant Baroque mastery.
I had asked my teacher if I could learn his 3-Voice Inv. No.2 or 4 or 7, and she played them out for me. Each freakin one made me tear, I had to turn away and pretend I was doing something else.
I chose the fourth ultimately, I'm not sure why... it's not my favorite either, but something about it.. Rolling Eyes

I think the only piece that's ever made me cry is Arvo Pärt's "Spiegel im Spiegel," but that's probably mostly due to what it reminds me of rather than the music itself. It is possible that I cried while listening to Albinoni's "Adagio in G Minor," but I can't be sure.

Other emotional pieces for me:
Liszt - Un Sospiro
Chopin - Ballade 4, Raindrop Prelude, Nocturnes Op. 9 (all), 15/1, 37/2, and pretty much all the rest of them, Ocean Etude, Grande Polonaise Brilliante
Vivaldi - Nulla in mundo pax sincera
Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 in G, Prelude; "Air" from Orchestral Suite No. 3, Partita III in E, "Jesu, joy of man's desiring"; "Zion hort die Wachter singen"
Beethoven - Pathetique 2nd, Moonlight 1st (yeah, it's completely overused, but it is beautiful)
Ravel - Jeux d'Eau
Mozart - Flute and Harp Concerto (I am not looking up the K number or anything because GOD he wrote a lot of stuff)
Barber - Adagio for Strings
Elgar - Nimrod
Dvorak - New World Symphony (the entire symphony is exquisite), Song to the Moon
Delibes - Flower Duet from Lakme
Saint-Saens - My Heart at Thy Sweet Voice
Faure - In Paradisum
Satie - Gnossienne No. 1, Gymnopedie No. 1
Schumann - "Almost too serious" from Scenes from Childhood
Schubert - Impromptu Op. 90, No. 3
Debussy - Clair de Lune, Sarabande (from "Pour le piano")
Thomas Newman - Orchard House
Rachmaninoff - Prelude Op. 32 No. 10, Concertos 2 and 3, and basically his entire oeuvre
Scriabin - Impromptu Op. 12, No. 2

Yeah, uh. I'll stop now.

Rachmaninoff's D minor concerto didn't put me to tears, but I'd like to post it here cuz it's the one piece that has made me feel all possible emotions the first time I listened to it.


Offtopic: Ravel's concerto for the left hand alone, the first time I actually listened to this piece, I nearly had to vomit. It made me feel sick, I don't know why, but I love this piece Smile.
