Castaway on an iSland with only an iPod....

...what would be on your iPod?  Well, hopefully you have some food and shelter on the island, otherwise your iPod is not going to be much use to you.

Here's my list (so far):

Vivaldi - Four Seasons.
Handel - The Messiah, Water Music, Royal Fireworks Music, anything else that will fit.
Mozart - The Magic Flute, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Piano Concertos (all of them), last 7 or 8 symphonies, Laudate Dominum from Solemn Vespers, K 339, Requiem Mass, Coronation Mass.
Beethoven - All the piano concertos, all the piano sonatas, all the symphonies, all the string quartets, The two masses, the violin concerto, the triple concerto, all the overtures and marches and anything else that will fit.
Schubert - all the symphonies and a few of his piano sonatas and anything else that will fit.
Mendelssohn - Anything that will fit.
Bruch - Anything that will fit.
Dvorak - New World Symphony and anything else that will fit.
Chopin - Polonaise Brilliante for Cello and Piano in C major, Opus 3, all the preludes and the two piano concertos.
Brahms - All the symphonies and anything else that will fit.

Well, as you can see, I will need a lot of KBs on my iPod, 'cause that list ain't complete.

I would also of course have works by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Liszt, Schumann, JS Bach, Telemann, Haydn, etc.
