My favourite orchestral works

ah, what to say? There is so much incredibly beautiful orchestral music out there; these are probably the first 10 that came to mind. Rossini's overtures delight me too....and soooo many more compositions......


I chose the youtube selections randomly. It's worth exploring the different interpretations online but these will be a safe jumping-off point....
