sweet mother of Jesus, I just found THE most awesome site on the whole wide world of internets. hold your breath, here it comes;

http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer.php

yes. for anyone who plays a classical instrument, or classical music (classical instrument isn't even always required, I believe), this is your new favorite buddy. as you can see, there's a megagigantic shitload of composers listed on the site, click on any composer you like & you'll find soundfiles & sheet music, organised by instrument, concerto, et cetera.

as for a few things that drew my special interest;
*the fucking FUGUE from Bach (Toccata & Fugue in D), which is a freakin' masterpiece.
*Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. oh yesss.
*Chopin's Nocturne No 21, that was played in the movie the Pianist.
*Pachelbel's Canon in D. by now I'm fucking sick of the thing, because everybody keeps listening to/requesting/playing it, but it's simple, it's easy, it's fun & when you listen to it for the first time, it's even also very beautiful.
