This Christmas hymn is well known and nice too: Adeste Fideles ('O Come, All Ye Faithful) and it is attributed to the English composer John Francis Wade (it seems that the exact composer of this piece is unknown).

Gustav Mahler was an Austrian composer of the later Romantic period. He was a conductor and composer concerned with showing many feelings in one piece of music. Mahler wrote ten symphonies (the last being unfinished) which contain the vast majority of his entire repertoire. Besides symphonies no.1, no.4 and no.5, I can mention as favorite pieces:

Symphony no.5 - Adagietto
Symphony no.10 - Final movement
Symphony no.2 - Movement for 2 pianos
Blumine (2 movement dropped from symphony no.1)
Piano quartet in A minor
Symphony no.9 – Adagio
Symphony no.1 – 2 movement

Mahler has always scared me. Those symphonies are so long and intimidatingly ambitious. As he said to Sibelius, he thought they should "be like the world", embracing everything. I've found it hard to know where to even start with his work, but now I have a list! Thanks, club.

And tapari, your Sibelius list was positively DANGEROUS. The Swan of Tuonela and the Wood Nymph won me over, then I went to amazon and started buying. I now have a collection of the complete symphonies and most of the other major works, including the full Lemminkainen Suite (and the whole work is wonderful, not just the Swan.) Of the symphonies, I've listened to 1-5 so far. 3 is my favorite, but I like 1,2, and 5 very much as well. 4 sounds like whoever wrote it should have been taking anti-depressants, not writing music, but Sibelius was convinced at the time he was writing it that a throat tumor would kill him, so its dreariness is kind of understandable. Also like his string quartet "Voces Intimae" very much. Now I'm wondering how much your Liszt post is going to cost me.

I'm afraid I haven't been able to move on to the Rachmaninoff or Mahler yet, because I've fallen in love with Sibelius. I just discovered this site and thought I'd link it if anyone else is interested:

http://www.sibelius.fi

It's a great resource for learning more about Sibelius's work. There are analyses of the major works, with sound files illustrating Sibelius's use of harmony and thematic development.

I feel like I have a better grasp of his Symphony 4 after reading more about it and am actually coming to appreciate its darkness. "Enjoy" may not be the right word for this work, but I definitely appreciate it, and I can imagine certain moods where it might be the only piece of music I'd want to listen to.
