    Expanding my classical collection

    I have a few classical CD's, Beethoven's 5th and 9th. Copland's Appalachian spring. I am looking for something more lively and fast. If anyone could post some recommendations I would appreciate it.
    Thanks Jimmy B

    Dvorak's Carnival Overture always gets the juices flowing for me, along with Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony, especially the 4th movement.

    Sorry for the late reply. The boards look like know body replied. Jack I did go after the Dvorak carnival overture. The week after I posted this Seattle's classic station was having it's Beg week (listener funded) and it happened to be payday so I donated and will be getting several CD's to listen to. Thank you for the other recommendations.
