What is/are your favorite classical piece(s) that “hypes you up”

jimmy_the_turtle_

- Verdi, Requiem... all of it, best piece ever written - Sibelius, Symphony no. 5, 3rd movement - Wagner, Vorspiel to act I of Das Rheingold (my god, the tension!) - Wagner, Wotans Abschied from Die Walküre (Leb wohl, du kühnes, herrliches Kind, makes me feel like a god) - Wagner, First parts of act III of Siegfried (there is thunder involved in the prelude) - Respighi, Pini di Roma (Villa Borghese) - Bartók, Concerto for Orchestra 5th movement - Dvořák, Symphony no. 9 1st and 4th movements - Shostakovich, Violin concerto no. 1 (fast parts, II and IV) - John Adams, The Chairman Dances (just good fun) - Brahms, Schicksalslied (DOCH UNS IST GEGEEEEBEN...!!!! What a twist!) - Brahms, Gesang der Parsen - Berlioz, Act IV Chasse royale et orage (pantomime) from Les Troyens - Purcell, March for the Funeral of Queen Mary, Funeral March I (how stately) - Verdi, Act I Scene I, Storm from Otello - Tchaikovsky, Symphony no. 6, 3rd movement (let's keep the 4th for a different moment, shall we?) - Rachmaninoff, Piano Concerto no. 2, 1st movement - Manolis Kalomiris, The Destruction of Psara (includes dramatic narrator) - Manolis Kalomiris, In St. Luke's Monastery (again, the narrator does it, I don't even know Greek but it just works) - Richard Strauss, Don Juan - Ralph Vaughan Williams, A Sea Symphony, I. A Song for All Seas, All Ships (fun fact: the composer said after first rehearsal something like "I did not know an orchestra could produce such a sound!") - Tchaikovsky, Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture - Sibelius, Symphony no. 2 Finale - Shostakovich, Symphony no. 10, 2nd movement - Oscar Lorenzo Fernández, Batuque from Reisado do pastoreio - Jón Leifs, Galdra-Loftr Overture - Jón Leifs, Hékla (it's about the volcano... should say enough) - Grieg, Old Norwegian Melody with Variations, XVIII (intense 50 seconds, those) - Joaquín Turina, Danzas fantásticas, III. Orgia - Carl Orff, Carmina Burana, "O Fortuna!" and "Fortune plango vulnera" (I know, the pop music lover's classical music and the classical music lover's pop music... see it as my classical guilty pleasure) - Heitor Villa-Lobos, Symphony no. 6, 4th movement - Stravinsky, Rite of Spring

Brahms Schicksalslied, best horn solo ever. (yeah I was a horn player)

Sibelius 5 is legendary

Hey, every opera needs a libretto!


[deleted]

What makes you say that?


muffinpercent

Wait, Rach 2 *1st* movement? Not the 3rd?


jimmy_the_turtle_

I'm not that familiar with the other movements so I didn't think it'd be a good idea to talk about them. I've heard it's briliant - all of it - but I haven't gotten around to it yet. That's the case for many of these larger, multi-movement pieces like these symphonies and concertos and operas. For instance, I once listened to all of Otello, but it's too long ago to really remember it beside a general feeling of "yeah, I remember enjoying it". Or Sibelius' 5th: I know the first movement and allegro molto but that's it really. Need to work on it, I know.


genuinenuisance

not really "hypes" me up, but the sacrificial dance in the rite of spring helps me get through essay writing at 2 am.


Sambo1987

Definitely 'Short Ride In A Fast Machine' by John Adams.


ursulahx

Finale of Mahler 2. I can’t be alone.


IoSonCalaf

You are not!! This is my “pump me up” and has been for years! Which recording? I like the live Tennstedt version.


ursulahx

I always go back to Rattle with the CBSO.


IoSonCalaf

Rattle takes it a little too fast for my taste, but his orchestral balances are divine.


exlapp

The entire piece is awesome. That build up to the recapitulation of the first theme in the first movement gets me pumped, every time. I blasted this a week ago on my Sonos surround sound system (playbar, subwoofer, two Ones as satellites), Sonos Ones in my bathroom, bedroom and office, and my Sonos Move in my kitchen. There’s a DVD of Alan Gilbert w/ the NYPhil playing Mahler 2 for the 9/11 concert - IMO, a great rendition. I nearly shook my apartment complex to the ground blasting the final movement. Fucking epic.


NoneOtherxx

That's also one of my favorite moments! I just feel like no one milks those chords at the "molto pesante" marking just before the first theme is restated on all strings. I've listened to many, many conductors play it with many, many orchestras, and the only one who I think does it justice is Rattle. For reference, \[this video\]([https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwRPYijLygA](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwRPYijLygA)) at exactly the 15 minute mark. Regardless of the orchestra or the conductor, still the best piece ever written IMO.


opus_125

HAHAHA. That’s really milking it. I think, from memory, Bernstein may be the only one who comes close to milking it like Sir Simon, but that may be just because he generally takes a faster tempo than most for many of the passages - so it feels like that section is dragged juxtaposed to preceding passage’s pace. Haitink may have what you’re looking. I’ve listened to many recording as well: Kaplan, Dudamel, Bernstein, Solti, Tilson Thomas, Abbado... none come that close to really making it feel “very heavy” the way that Rattle does in that YouTube clip. Thanks for sharing.

Dixit Dominus (Händel). I just can't listen to it while driving or I'll be speeding.

HOW DID I NEVER HEARD OF THIS MASTERPIECE BEFORE ???????????


sabdeyazdan

Very nice choice, it's one of my favorites too :)


emroo07

Dvorak 2, Beethoven 9 and this. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=RDEMXPhOJOYOQ not a classic but performed by London symphony orchestra


JzudemB

Beethoven 7 is pretty crazy Grieg Piano Concerto (sort of personal thing on that one) I often experience that I get way more hyped by pieces I have already played myself


viagraeater

Love the Grieg piano concerto too, it is epic.


gunaahokadevta

when it comes to comparing symphonies on the whole, beethoven 7th is my all time favorite.


eszther02

Little Red Riding Hood Etude by Rachmaninoff. It's a bit dark but... Oh well. And also la campanella. It gives me cheerful vibes. Also Sibelius concerto 3rd movement. It's exciting. Some guitar pieces, too. Villa-Lobos Prelude no 1. And some Francisco Tárrega pieces that aren't melancholic or sad. This one is a little bit cliché but Asturias. And The Four Seasons. And weirdly I can vibe to any kind of renaissance street music. When I wanna get hyped or cheerful or just wanna vibe I listen to those. Maybe those give me the strongest vibes


NEO_X1

Ahhh I thought I was alone in Sibelius 3rd movement, such an amazing ending to an epic piece


Necatrix01

Well.. it would be a cliché but: Ride of the Valkyries - Wagner. In the hall of the mountain king - Grieg. Dance of the knights - Prokofiev


lscrivy

Dance of the Knights is pretty lit


claymountain

Yep I defenitely agree with Grieg and Prokofiev, they just get me hyped af. I'm in a student orchestra and since we won't be able to perform a concert anyway we decided to rehearse these two. Along with some John Williams and Hans Zimmer for good measure.


gunaahokadevta

dance of the knights is so good

prustage

Almost anything by CPE Bach - particularly his symphonies and keyboard concertos. A lot of his music is high energy - very fizzy and urgent. Also, Glinka's Russlan and Ludmilla Overture, opening of Mendelssohn's "Italian" and Debussy's Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum - marvellous bubbly ending that leaves you feeling elevated.

Cliche in every sense of the word, but "In the Hall of the Mountain King" for sure.


Hyperhavoc5

Shostakovich symphony 10, mvt 2 is the ultimate hype song


exlapp

Mahler 1 Mahler 2 Brahms 1 Brahms 4 (final movement) Beethoven 5 Beethoven 9 Vivaldi Winter (Janine Jansen’s recording is out of control) Beethoven - final movement of Appasionata Sonata Beethoven - Pathetique Sonata Brahms - Violin Concerto (first movement), Brahms - Piano Concerto No 1 Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 2 Bach - Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D minor Mozart - Piano concerto No. 20 Mozart - G minor Piano Quartet If not specifically listed, assume either 1st and/or final movements as giving most “hype”, but each of the listed pieces in their entirety are my faves. I’m sure there’s a ton more that I’m forgetting, but these are few I can name without thinking too hard. Edit: also Beethoven Op 131 final movement, but listen to at least the movement before as it transitions so well into that finale. Just listen to the entire thing because it is truly one of the greatest works ever written by anyone. Ever.


sabdeyazdan

Surprisingly the last Mvm of the Mozart's very last symphony: Jupiter(No. 41), the 4th Mvm Also Danzon No.2 by Arturo Marquez


LoupeRM

Yes Mozart sym 41 movement 4 is my clear number one also, conducted fast by Szell or Bohm. Other candidates: the last 2 minutes of Beethoven 7, or Schumann 4, the egmont overture, Shostakovich Sym 10 movement 2, Eroica movement 1, Bach Brandenburg 5 movement 1, the fast parts of the Mozart Requiem, the finale of Don Giovanni.


sabdeyazdan

I like your choices, especially reqium, don Giovanni, egmont and eroica


TchaikenNugget

\- Mahler 1 mvmt 4 \- Shostakovich 7 finale (saw some Shostakovich in the comments, but I'm surprised I didn't see this one!) \- Dvorak quartet 12 finale \- Ravel's "La Valse" \- Holst's "St. Paul's Suite"

Prokofiev Piano Sonata 7, 3rd Movement - Precipitato 7/8 time and a syncopated whirlwind. Bronfman’s recording is excellent—and Glemser on Naxos is actually pretty hard to beat.

I feel like a lot of people are just listing things that they think sound cool or beautiful, and don't necessarily get your blood pumping, which I thought was what this question was asking. But anyway here goes. Definitely last mvt. of Shostakovich 11. Favorite recording has to be Nelsons with Boston, he's the only one I can find who takes at a speed that actually "hypes me up." First mvt. of Shostakovich 12 is similar to 11 finale, and it has similar hype vibes. Last mvt. of Shostakovich quartet no 9 is also great, but it has different vibes because its not in 4/4, and 4/4 tends to hype me up more than time signatures in 3. Shosty 5 finale is also pretty darn good, as is the finale of 6. Shostakovich can write a damn good fast movement. Also, should mention Schubert Death and the Maiden finale, cause it has similar vibes to the shostakovich stuff, just nonstop eighth notes and a similar tempo and feel.

Recently haydn op 76 no 2 first movement and op 76 no 6 last movement and beethoven last mvt from op 132 (which makes me want to break my fist). But theres lots... I have a playlist called 'a quick fuck you' with short, hyping pieces designed to show to anyone who thinks classical is boring (esp directed a friend who dislikes haydn). It contains various single movements under 4 mins: Mozart K407 rondo is maybe my favorite. OK lets throw in Debussy quartet mvt II. For exercise, I listen to huge stuff eg. Brahms op. 56 or op. 68, Beethoven 9th or Diabelli variations, st john passion, mass in Bm, Art of fugue and MAYBE the best of all the GROSSE FUGUE!!


doc_fontaine

The 1st movement of Beethoven's 8th. You're in no doubt that something is happening when that symphony begins. The way the orchestra just sort of explodes into life, it's like the conductor's got a starting pistol.


JimPalamo

Eroica 3rd movement.


markodochartaigh1

Ruslán and Lyudmíla Overture, Glinka. And Danse Bacchanale, Saint-Saëns. And Slavonic Dance #8, opus46, Dvořák.

Dvorak 9, movements 1 and 3 for sure! Also movement 1 of both Beethoven's 6th and 9th.


Peraou

OK I will probably edit this 10000 times as I gather my wits and think of more, BUT, I just want to start by saying that everyone thinks the Dies Irae is the best part of Verdi’s requiem (and it is really amazing), but the real BEST part of the requiem, is the Tuba Mirum!!!!!!! It will send you dashing forward on wingèd shoes to greet any obstacle with a smile. It is perhaps the single best trumpet/horn entry in the entire classical œuvre! (In my quite unhumble opinion). (Also great: the Lacrymosa and Libéra Me/finale) but tbh the whole thing is wall to wall bangers and it slaps from start to finish. Anyway will update with more soon.
