    Well, it doesn't really, but I get goosebumps whenever I go to the opera or a concert. Astonishing feeling, I can't really describe it. Polovtsian Dances by Alexander Borodin is the one that makes me go wild. I've written a hub about it. smile

    There are things by Puccini which just tear me up...  Another piece which comes to mind is the finale of Elgar's Cello Concerto.  Nonetheless, niether Puccini nor Elgar are my favorite composers by a long shot...so sad music doesn't mean it's great - the slow movement of Beethoven's 9th is also sad; however, it's probably the single greatest movement ever written, unlike anything by Puccini or Elgar, although they're great as well...hope this helps

    Not really cry, but there are some very beautiful pieces out there which can leave a strong effect on you. Try listening to some Strauss works like Der Rosenkavalier Suite. Also, check out this hub with some of my favorite classical music works. They might make you cry.
