There are a lot of pieces of classical music that seem to be used over and over as background music, so I made a flowchart to keep track of them. It’s best viewed on a full-size computer screen; on small screens the links might not line up correctly. For a hi-res pdf, click here.
Cliché or not, these are beautiful pieces of music, and I hope you get the chance to enjoy the full works, and not just the overused snippets. Happy listening!
