I don't know if it's my absolute favorite short piece, but this Scarlatti sonata, as interpreted by the incomparable Horowitz, is a delight to any fairy.  :)

There are quite a few, and I don't know where to begin.

Debussy (Arabesque, 1 and 2)

Chopin (Nocturne)

Beethoven (Pastorale)

Liszt (Love Dream)

Tchaikovsky (Concerto pour piano no 1)

Yes, I love the Pastorale, especially the 3rd movement, with the oboe and bassoon counterpoint. :) :) :)


Kind of got me there as I'm not much of a classical music person. I'm lucky to have any class at all! LOL. But I do like some Wagner here and there.

O'Tink, to come up with only one best-loved would be difficult...the Pachelbel Canon in D a definite contender...also Beethoven 5th Piano Concerto, and his 6th Symphony the Pastorale...

Since age 18, I have loved Domenico Scarlatti; JS Bach especially the Glenn Gould interpretations; Boccherini's famous minuet, but especially Night Music From The Streets of Madrid. And since you posted Mad Mary and her brother with their very special Ode to Joy, I have listened to that semi-daily!
