We have a string quartet which I’m super excited about, but I’m classical music illiterate. My Fiance is a bit anti-Canon in D due to the fact he was in a string quartet and had to play it all the time. Does anyone else have any other suggestions?
Please and thank-you!

I have found this web site where you can listen to a lot of classical music. Perhaps you can find something. also, i’m pretty sure your string quartet will have some nice suggestions.

Have you asked the string quartet? They may appreciate having the opportunity to suggest songs that they enjoy playing and you could then look them up.

Most of this genre of music that would best fit walking down the aisle (if you ask me!) is from the Romantic period. Schubert is beautiful, for example! I think the best thing to do is to Google “romantic period composers” or “classical period composers” and once you find some names, type that and “string quartet” into youtube and listen to lots of stuff. This way you can try to find something you like! Since your fiance obviously has played classical music, why not ask him if he has a favourite composer and look through some of their pieces?

PS – Amaroo’s suggestion is really great too. Often musicians “fave” pieces are really beautiful and uncommon!
