Music - new age / classical / opera recommendations

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I wasn't able to find a forum that really matches my question, but think people here would have the most experience to do so....

Anyway, most of my life I've listened to rock, metal, etc... but have developed more of an interest in other types of music. I used to play piano as a child and like listening to pieces that are either entirely piano.... or a mix of piano / violin. I'm looking for pieces that are either bright or dark, but that are soft and orderly and not very chaotic.

I've searched and searched and listened to tons of classical, but there's not a lot that I like. I'm picky but have a hard time describing what I like because I'm not an experienced classical listener and because the genre is so varied.

I'll be listening to this music when I'm working or relaxing, so while I do like a lot of the music by famous composers like Beethoven, Chopin, etc... a lot of it is too intense.

Here are artists / songs that I've found that I love:

Hayley Westenra (Pure - Dark Waltz)
Nobuo Uematsu (FFX Piano Collections - Zanarkand, Tifa's Theme)
Johann Pachelbel (Canon in D Major)
Sarah Brightman & Fernando Lima (PasiĆ³n)
Emma Shapplin (Eterna - La Notte Etterna remix)
David Lanz (Best of David Lanz - Cristofori's Dream)
David Lanz (Best of David Lanz - Variations On a Theme from Canon in D Major)
David Lanz (Best of David Lanz - Dreamer's Waltz)
Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli, London Symphony Orchestra (Time to Say Goodbye - There for me)
Misa Johnouchi & the Li-Hua Ensemble (Asian Wind, piano version)

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
