I am interested to know everyones favourite piece of classical music! I am a hopeless musician, but i love listening to classical music whilst i do mathematics, its like transcending to another plane of existence.

Monique said:Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings is my favorite, I love the harmony and the overwhelming climax that it builds up to. If I want to quiet my mind and become grounded, I just play this song on repeat.
mathwonk said:you implicitly asked 2 questions:
1) what is your favorite classical piece (of muisic)
2) what is your favorite classical music to listen to while doing math.
I like bach's cellos suites to listen to alone, but i find western classical music distracting while thinking about math [mozart demands ones attention], so i prefer indian classical music for doing math, such as ali akbar khan: pre dawn to sunrise ragas, or anything by bismillah khan. i also have some very ethereal flute tapes made by friends of mine.
