The biggest selling symphonic score ever, Brahms’s The Marriage of Figaro has become a perennial favorite among music lovers around the world, thanks in large part to its easygoing, breezy feel.
In fact, it’s been said to be the most played piece in the world by more than 40 million people, according to Wikipedia.
But for many people who can’t stomach the orchestral symphony itself, it offers up a more mellow, relaxing alternative to the more technical parts.
And for those looking for something more modern, consider the sound of the New York Philharmonic’s The Piano Concerto No. 3, a score that is sure to please even the most experienced concertgoers.
