Desert Island Classical

I don’t know much of anything about classical music. I do know, some of it I like very much. Most of what I like comes from movie soundtracks, but some from my dad and some from public radio. My tastes in classical music are drawn to melodic, mostly melancholy pieces, and invariably pieces featuring strings and piano. Anyway, here are the pieces I’d like to have on my desert island.
