Video games and classical music go great together. Piano pieces seem to be the most popular inclusions.

wonderful list idea!
102 dalmatians also included the Nutcracker Suite in the Winter level :)
Posted: 5 years, 2 months ago at Apr 6 11:23
There is also the Nutcracker Suite, Pastoral (6th Symphony), and L'Apprenti Sorcier from Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance.

I'm led to believe that Mozart's Turkish March is played throughout 'Escape Plan' for the PS Vita.

Got a few you can add:

Mega Man Legends (PS1)

Piece: Nocturne Op.9 No.2
Composer: Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin
In Game: "Present" (Music box theme in Roll's room)

On YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DOTnu5sLz8

Piece: Little Fugue in G Minor
Composer: Johann Sebastian Bach
In-Game: Juno - Last Battle Physique (first battle)

First Battle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MelB4_5Vfk&list=PL8980394D908FF542
Second Battle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6quIGAk-GzQ

It should be noted that only the first version of this track is on an official licensed disc... the other can only be obtained by gamerips as the Mega Man Legends Soundtrack only contains half the game's music.

Both of these were adapted by Makoto Tomozawa of Capcom.

Dude Totally forgot:

Mega Man Legends 2 (PS1):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFKJOKLlJGA

The Sulpher Bottom theme is Vivaldi's "Four Seasons~ Spring"

This was also adapted by Makoto Tomozawa of Capcom.
