Now, I'm not talking about "favorites" per se, here, but what really are stress reducers (research bears me out). Mozart wins, hands down. and not just his piano music, but also his symphonies -- most notably the 40th -- and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

The last two are recommended for relaxing migraine sufferers. and I can attest that altho I don't get migraines, and I get headaches rarely, Mozart removes them more rapidly than any over the counter medication.

Now, if I'm talking about my favorite Mozart, that would be the 4 horn concerti (surprise, surprise! ) and the 40th Symphony.

If any of you haven't done so I highly recommend watching the movie Amadeus. The film is about Mozart and it won Best Picture among several other awards several years ago.

Don't know if its technically considered "classical" but when I'm stressed I enjoy the soothing sounds of the "Witches in bikinis" song "Party like a Chimpanzee"

Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade was something I adored as a child. It is fun.

I love that, but I prefer his piano concerto. American in Paris is not chopped liver, either.
