Whoa, don't get me started with Joe Hisaishi, he is the best composer alive nowadays, (in my eyes ears). He is just pure genius.
Ok, just this one which has an interesting composition of instruments, but is very soothing.
Joe Hisaishi's - Sea of blue (from Hanabi soundtrack):

My kids all love Hiyashi (and Miyazaki, of course) - they have about 30 pieces of his on their Ipods

When I was 7 or 8 I used to listen to Ravel's Bolero while I played with my army men in the back yard - perfect.

Did somebody mention Bizet's Carmen yet?

I had not be able to acquire more music of Hisaishi recently, and I love it. I manage to obtain years ago, his Freedom, Piano Stories 4 CD, and other anime's soundtracks pieces, the most I like are from Freedom are: (certainly less sooth than Sea of Blue)

and also within classic like, José Pablo Moncayo's Huapango (mexican composer), learned hearing it from Luis Cobos direction at Mexicano's Album 20 years ago, here inside Cacahuamilpa Caverns, I would had loved been there!!, at a certain poin trumps sound sound different, well I had been inside Cacahuamilpa Caverns but not in a concert, that would had been quite an experience.

found this other Huapango version, different symphonic and director, sounds good too, more quality _https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HAmrz3-ehI

I don't have near the breadth that many of you have in this area.

I played saxophone in junior high and did well. Usually 2nd chair, sometimes 1st. I could recognize a whole, half, and quarter note today, and not much else. :-[

Out of my small classical collection, one of my favorites is Manuel De Falla's El Amor Brujo/Danza Ritual del Fuego. Lots of "gear switching." I find the cadence very compelling in many spots.

This is taken from the 1976 complete recording by Elly Ameling (soprano), Anna Reynolds (alto), Philip Langridge (tenor), Gwynne Howell (bass)
Sir Neville Marriner, Conductor
Academy of St. Martin in the Fields
