Here's one a lot of people may know without even realising it.

Richard Strauss and others were influential in terms of Hollywood film scores including Star Wars and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30 is a tone poem by Richard Strauss, composed in 1896 and inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophical 1883–1885 novel Thus Spoke Zarathustra.

She has an amazing voice.

It is interesting to listen to this Spanish take on opera and classical music.

I find the erhu to be a remarkable Chinese instrument that dates back to the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

This is a moving rendition of the Butterfly Lovers.

Where the Andes (longest & 2nd highest range) and Amazon (largest rainforest) meet, in this collision of ecosystems and cultures, where sub-zero glaciers become collosal rivers, gives birth to this soul enriching music often used during Ayahuasca (Yagé) ceremonies. P.S. annoying how Prince Harry and Hollywood la la circles are riding this bandwagon and manipulating these ancient ceremonies.

It is a nice rendition on erhu.
The composition was written in 1959, originally for the violin.

Good shout. Some of the great big band stuff has its roots in old US Folk, same happens in Colombia where 16th-19th century classics are revamped into orchestral ensembles in the 30's, 40's & 50's.

The 16th century genre of Cumbia born out of the interaction of Indigenous American, African and European culture in the Bayou of the Magdalena river and Mountains of Maria, is interpreted by big band orchestras.

Cumbia



Same with Mapale, a Guinean folk dance from medieval Africa still preserved till this day in Colombia, adapted to big band. You get this a lot, genres from as far as Czechoslovakia to the Levant still preserved in Colombia hence so many UNESCO world intangible heritage bestowals and hundreds of folk genres still celebrated in the country.

I host a channel about Classical Music on YouTube. It's in Portuguese, though.

Countrywise, the countries with the finest composers are Germany and Austria: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Mahler, Brahms, Wagner, Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Richard Strauss, Johann Strauss; and many others which are not so famous: Hummel, Graupner, Dittersdorf, Telemann, Pachelbel... the list is enormous. Even Haendel, who is one of the most regarded national composers of England, was actually German.

Then comes Italy (Monteverdi, Scarlatti, Palestrina, Vivaldi, Boccherini, Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, Donizetti, Bellini, Respighi, etc.), Russia (Tchaikovsky, Glinka, Cui, Rimsky-Korsakov, Glazunov, Balakirev, Mussorgksy, Stravinsky) and France (Rameau, Lully, Berlioz, Gounod, Bizet, Delibes, Saint-Saëns, Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, Poulenc). Other European countries have a sizable number of "nationalist" composers or composers born there but which moved (Chopin, for example, a pole by birth but moved to France), but not reaching the level of these countries.

Americas have less ones. USA has three big stars (Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein) and a bunch of minor ones. Brazil has also three big stars (Villa-Lobos, Nunes Garcia and Carlos Gomes), and Argentina also three (Ginastera, Piazzola, Ariel Ramírez) but mostly not very known abroad.

Asia and Africa have their own musical traditions and, except some outsiders, don't fit in the concept of Classical Music. Japan has two famous names (Ryuichi Sakamoto and Toru Takemitsu), but are both from 20th century and they follow already the post-tonal aesthetics.
