Seems that the music thread has gotten away from some of the truly great melodies of all time. To remedy this, I would like to propose that aficionados post some of their favourite works from the Baroque, Classical through the Romantic eras, (1600~1750; 1730~1830; 1820~1920, respectively)
I will begin this thread with the Maurice Ravel orchestration of Modeste Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition, as performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Herbert Von Karajan:
