Recommend symphonic music for me to buy

OK, so when I'm at work and reading lawsuits and contracts and requests etc, rock music/etc is just distracting, but I like music in general. So normally I put on some type of symphonic music. Much of this takes the form of movie soundtracks.

Examples of stuff I really like:
Hans Zimmer / King Arthur OST
Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard / Gladiator OST
Basil Poledouris / Hunt for Red October OST
John Williams & the Boston Pops
Prague City Philharmonic / Music from the Films of Sean Connery
Hans Zimmer / Crimson Tide OST


But that's just a sample. What else is out there?

Get some Boston Symphony Stuff or Chicago Symphony Orchestra, they have a lot of good stuff. Not quite the same effect as Zimmer Music but good stuff.

I have a subsonic site you can check out if you'd like with all of my music on it for listening.

Re: Recommend symphonic music for me to buy

Some of Bach's and Bethoven's stuff is fairly sweeping. Especially Bethoven's 9th symphany and I also really like his 4th and 5th symphanies. Motzart is good, but generally not as 'stirring' like most of the music you listed.

I am not sure if you are interested in the style of music, but a lot of celtic and gaelic 'classical' music can be fairly rousing. I am a big bag pipe fan myself. That and just listening to a nice Irish woman singing makes me realize why my british ancestors where so hot for invading the country.

Three OSTs that I really like ....

Gettysburg OST - R. Eldeman
Enemy of the State OST - T.Rabin
Armageddon OST - T.Rabin

Trevor Rabin OSTs are more of a mix between symphonic and a little electronic rock riffs. Gettysburg is a must have if you like symphonic soundtracks.
