    I recently found this one [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_qutnEe_DM&feature=related"]YouTube- Telemann - Quatuor Parisien N°12 (Chaconne) / Il Giardino Armonico[/ame]

    It can be from any genre; I like being introduced to music I've never heard before.

    Oh gosh, I do not think I could pick just one. There are many things that I consider beautiful pieces of music. I'll try to stick to three though, all that are from different genres:


    Apparat - You Don't Know Me
    Genre: IDM/Electronic

    This entire album is beautiful, but the pure emotionality of this song in particular stands out for me. I know that the alignment I have to this song and the feelings it causes for me are largely unique to my individual psyche, but I feel like others might be able to hear it. It is a wonderful fusion of organic and machine.

    [YOUTUBE]4AhpoqTkuwY[/YOUTUBE]


    Amp - Glasshouse Jam
    Genre: Ambient/Post-Rock

    The simplicity of music. There is very little going on. But there is simply so much movement in all of this. The depth and breadth of all this is just boundless. It's a very gentle form of beauty.

    [YOUTUBE]ekQvQQ6QRNA[/YOUTUBE]


    iamamiwhoami - T
    Genre: Electronic/Ethereal

    This is definitely a new style for beauty in music if you ask me. However this does not dimish the quality of it at all. This is simply raw and open. It really taps into something primal and instinctive.

    [YOUTUBE]bW89Pv8QrX4[/YOUTUBE]


    There is a lot to music when I listen to it. To me there are elements to music that I personally find make it quite beautiful. Although this does not apply to everyone, I think it is enough that most people can recognize it. The common theme that I notice is having some kind of persistent, and slowly changing background tone. It's usually of a deeper/lower frequency. This more or less "fills" a lot of the dead space that a lot of music is simply missing. It keeps the mind busy and allows one to tap it emotionally. The higher order tones which don't even have to match the rythym create the active portion that the mind can follow. This certainly does not explain everything, but it is a rough overview. If you can put together the right sound elements, you can create beautiful music. However, it is the human nature that really brings it up to another level. One where you can see the sound reflecting something that is inner to all of us.

    Pick your player:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OlI0RLQJoU"]YouTube- Hilary Hahn - Sibelius Violin Concerto (part 1)[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6Kq0qMMpgU&feature=related"]YouTube- Christian Ferras plays Sibelius Violin Concerto: 1st mov.[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-KhwIWASk4"]YouTube- Sibelius violin concerto - 1st movement - 1st part[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SvAf-QbuvQ"]YouTube- (1/2) David Oistrakh - Sibelius Violin Concerto (1st mvt.)[/ame]

    Both women are much more fluid where Christian Ferras is much more mechanical, I like all the portrayals.

    Oistrakh is always amazing, from the most demanding and powerful movements to the most fluid interchanges.

    It would be really hard to pick the MOST beautiful piece of music, but here are a few that never fail to leave me breathless.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LUbpqsFMWnE"]YouTube- Liszt Rhapsody #2 for piano and violin[/ame]
    Not only is this piece stunning but it is enhanced by a rather remarkable pianist.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhN7SG-H-3k"]YouTube- Yiruma - River Flows in You[/ame]
    While a bit more simple in it's construction that the Liszt Rhapsody I posted above, it is still stunning in the way it is executed.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yN73k-1bPMg"]YouTube- Mirella Freni - Turandot - Tu, che di gel, sie cinta[/ame]
    Liu's sucide aria from Puccini's Turandot. It's heart wrenching if done right.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Upg6wwaS2cs"]YouTube- Lisa della Casa sings "Mi tradi"[/ame]
    I love how this piece flows. Props to Mozart. Also props to Lisa della Casa who actually makes this impossible aria seem somewhat easy. As I am currently learning it, I assure you it is not.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9shXm0cIeEY"]YouTube- Eric Whitacre conducts "Sleep"[/ame]
    Erich Whitacre has composed some of the most amazing choral music I have ever heard. I did this specific piece my junior year in high school and was lucky enough to get the chance to sing it under the direction of Mr. Whitacre himself. It was amazing.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXOYcd6KZ0E"]YouTube- Diana Damrau as Queen of the Night II [HQ][/ame]
    While this is a vengeance aria and meant to be terrifying, I still find it beautiful. Especially this specific performance of it.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzQjTUJ8Cuw"]YouTube- Corrine Byrne - Quia Respexit from Bach Magnificat[/ame]
    Quia Respexit from Bach's Manificat. Hauntingly beautiful.


    I could probably spend hours creating the perfect list, but for now I shall leave you all with this.

    This song never fails to give me goosebumps. It's a gorgeous song and it saddens me that the band is breaking up.

    Pachelbel's Canon, violin version.

    I know, it's incredibly common, but I still love it.

    The first time I heard this I was eight and on a school field-trip. It's difficult to find a good version online, apologies.
