Hmm...I've never cried from listening to a piece, but there are certainly some fantastice, emotional pieces out there.
When I watched Shine for the first time the other day, when David Helgoff played Rachmaninoff's Concerto No.3, it did put a smile on my face. It was so delicatly played, I was amazed! I would love to learn that one day.

IMPORTANT: in the movie Shine it's played by Rafael Orozco, who's like 1000x the pianist David Helfgott is.

Helfgott went through great psychological illness, went through a cruel psychiatric  treatment and survived it. The fact that his piano playing ability has remained although scathed by his illness, is a miracle and a testament to human courage.

Yeah but Orozco is like 1000x the pianist Helfgott is, and he played it in the movie. Give credit where credit is due!

I would have to say the ending climaxes of both Rach 2 and 3 have brought tears.
And also once on a live performance of Rach 2, the first climax linking the development to the recapitulation section during the first movement made tears in my eyes like never before.


And if any one of you have played Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) before, the music from Gusty Garden Galaxy has probably made some tears in your eyes. I strongly recommend this one!

A couple of classical pieces bring tears to my eyes.......... Air on a G String, Pathetique

Both these pieces are very nostalgic for me as my mother used to play them on piano and I heard them a lot growing up.

Many pieces are very powerful and make me cry, yet I am attracted by this one symbolic performance of Traumerei by Horowitz in Moscow. Great moment in history- The audience is crying too!



Brahms' "Wie Melodien Ziet" (for high voice) makes me cry, and it is about music in life and how it brings tears to our eyes!

I haven't cried during a performance yet, only while practicing.

What music (classical) doesn't make me cry? Live... oh, boy, what can I do?

But I'm particular to Chopin's Andante Spianato op.22, Liszt's Un Sospiro, Etude d'execution transcendante 12 (chasse-neige), Chopin's nocturne op.27 n.2 transcribed for the violin-piano... I'm already crying, just thinking of it...



for the classical guitar:  Barrios' Una Limosna por el Amor de Dios, Un sueno en la floresta, Villa-Lobos' Prelude n.3... Gardel-Le Pera El Dia que me Quieras...

Chopin's Tristesse...

Debussy's Clair de Lune (violin and piano)

Violin: Puccini's O mio babbino caro (transcription)... Thais' Meditation (Massenet)... the list is endless.

And Bach, Bach, Bach...

Beethoven: Moonlight Sonata esp the adagio, Piano concerto No 5, adagio  Symphony 9 and Symphony 6.

Mozart: Clarinet concerto in A major, adagio

Pachable: Cannon in D


I was listening to Pollini's version of the Chopin ballades last night 8), I heard Nos 1,3 :-*,4 and the prelude in C# minor. As well as the bliss from listening to these pieces I was moved so much I started to weep after I finished listening to it, I thought gosh its so moving oh my god! and the tears just welled up in my eyes...so I suppose this counts even though it was somewhat delayed. :P

Chopin's etude op.10 no.3. It feels like a goodbye song.

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata 1st Movement. It sounds so dark and with a moon in a beautiful night..

Vitali's Chaconne. This is a violin piece but it is so melancholic.

Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata.

hi, there!
isn't another thread with the same subject or i had a deja-vu? anyway, it's amazing to know what moves someone: there are the classic tear makers, and some surprises.
to me, the most moving piece i can remember is sgambati's arrangement of gluck (the melody), particularly in the interpretation of guiomar novaes. what a wonderful piece of music!
best!

Wow there are so many......a few off of the top of my head though:

Chopin: raindrop prelude, andante spianato, piano concerto no. 1- romance, ballades, nocturnes, standard stuff....

Grieg: piano concerto, many of his lyric pieces, parts of the holberg suite

I do have to say that I am a fan of several video game / anime music that is really touching. This includes the mother series, neon genesis evangelion, howl's moving castle, final fantasy, etc.

However the ultimate unquestionable piece that moves me to tears is the last movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony. I always feel so small when I hear it, like I am standing in the presence of God. The epic yet moving and sentimental nature of it will always stand out in my heart he most. Not only that, but the story behind it, and how it epitomizes Beethoven's work as his last symphony just puts it on a pedestal for me.

Oh and still somewhat classical / modern, Korean pianist Yiruma's music is also quite moving in a very loving sentimental way.

well i havent been brought to tears ever since i failed to get into a music skl. i tore and burnt the letter that told me so lol. but most of the the music i've listened to thats really lovely and touching is bach's f# minor fugue from WTC2, the solo keyboard concerto in a major 2nd mvt, goldberg variations aria. the aria's especially moving when the 30th variation ends and ends with the aria. and chopin's ballade in g minor too although i dont really like chopin's music there are parts in the g minor ballade thats really wonderful especially in the triplet and duplet bars when the key changes from b flat major to a g minor and the ending's great too. to me bach's music really means the most i love the a major fugue on a theme of albinoni too

I agree completely. I hear a lot of people bagging his ability, but the fact that he still has the talent he does after all that he's been through is amazing. That and I have spoken to him and Gillian personally and they are great people. He is pretty much what inspired me to want to learn Piano.

Franz Liszt's Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen.  Liszt composed this piece after the death of his daughter.  It goes through all the stages of grief and ends with the most exquisite chorale, What God Does Is Done Well.  I particularly love Liszt's organ arrangement of his original piano composition.

Yes, though I like the Busoni Transcription. That and Ravel's Ondine and Debussy's La Cathedrale Engloutie performed by Karl Lutchmayer. Quite a magical concert. I've also been moved by parts of Messaien's Visions D'Amen, Rachmaninov's Third Piano Concerto, and Smetana's The Moldau. Also, performing the Hallelujah Chorus with Albany Pro Musica was a magical moment for me.

Without a doubt, though, the sixth movement of Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem. You have to listen to this, and you have to listen to it on a stereo system loud enough so that the feel the sound as well as hear it. And, before you listen to it, you must read and memorize the translation, because half the beauty of this piece is his choice in lyrics. This is still my favorite piece of music.

Someone recommended me that piece but I can't get into Brahms for some reason.

Several works come to mind re the question of this thread (I recall a meltdown at a live performance of Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps, both Louanges), but what brings quite a number of tears are those works by J.S. Bach that are lost such as 2 or 3 Passions, some 100 church Cantatas, a lot of of worldly Cantatas and any number of orchestral works (I read an estimate of perhaps some 20 lost Violin Concerti alone; thinking of what those 3 we have are like we have a major loss to bear there alone!).

What we have may constitue no more than perhaps as less as half of JS Bachs oeuvre. Deplore!
