The 10 Best Classical Music Tear-Jerkers

Most of us have favorite pieces of music, or maybe a favorite composer.  Something that helps us focus on work, stay calm during the morning commute, or maybe music to help get us through a workout.  But is there music that never fails to make you tear up?

Maybe it’s Vesti la giubba from Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci, as Canio cries the tears of a clown.  Or possibly Solveig’s Song from Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt, as Solveig waits for her love to return.

Any Top Ten list is subjective, but Classic FM, based in London, has put together their list.  I’d be interested in knowing what’s on yours.
