These are the opening snippets of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 - the opening of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd movements.  I'll try to edit this by adding YouTube clips of performances of each movement.  I just compiled such an excellent board when Pinterest failed me!  I'll try again soon. ---UPDATE --- Pinterest have become bastards & won't let me redirect to great performances for fear I'm spamming. Pinterest is anti-educational!

Brahms Symphony No. 4.  His final, and best, symphony.  I love Brahms use of melodic 3rds in his later works - compare the descending 3rds here and in Brahms Intermezzo Op. 119, No. 1 for piano.
