Hmm, Yo-Yo Ma seems like a very talented classic musician. He can play some really slick violin stuff.

Might not be your cup of tea, but it has a fantastic soundtrack and is a pretty good story.

I enjoy a lot of classical music but the one that instantly comes to mind first is the Planets Suite by Gustav Holst. It's wonderfully expressive and ranges from heavy, aggressive and full of power to soft, gentle and ebbing and flowing with great ease. Everyone seems to have their own favourite rendition, as many orchestras have their own take on the suite and each piece can sound notably different from orchestra to orchestra. This is my personal fave - the Chicago Symphony orchestra, performing my fave movement from the suite, Venus, Bringer Of Peace.

I listened to the song you recommended as well as a few other songs from the Planets suite. They're so amazing.
