Need help re:classical music

Hey guys, i need to make a video soon and i need to have some music in it. I need something classy and fast, mainly strings... Something you'd see on a Maybach Commercial or a Rolex commercial. If anyone has seen the World of Maybach movie on maybach.com....the 2nd half of that song is perfect. Vivaldi's Summer Presto is another great example.

Not sure if you guys know a lot about classical music and whatnot...

Thanks Guys!!!

Does it have to be presto? What length? You may want to listen to the final allegro of Vivaldi's Winter movement.
first movement of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto though it has a lighter tone
first movement of Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata
The Ciaccone from Bach's Partita for Violin #2
The First and Third Movements from Bach's Violin Concerto #1 in A minor
The Vivace from Bach's Double Concerto in D minor
The Presto from Bach's Violin Sonata # 1

If you are looking for something stormy for strings, violin in particular, nothing really matches the Vivaldi you noted since it is meant to feel like a sudden summer thunderstorm.

The music from the Maybach site sounds baroque to me, not classical. I cannot place it but try the Bach pieces I mentioned. I think they fit what you are seeking.

In addition to those Taittinger mentioned, take a listen to:

Mozart Symphony No. 38 in D Major, K. 504 ("Prague") Finale (Presto)
Mozart Symphony No. 40 in G Minor, K. 550 (Allegro molto) (perhaps too popular/familiar)
Beethoven Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125, 1st Movement (Allegro ma non troppo) (another familiar one)

Well that would be adagio and not presto, not the tempo the OP is seeking.

The Mozart #40 and Beethoven would definitely fit but are larger orchestral pieces; I was not sure if they were what the OP needed.

yea...id like to have it feature mainly strings, but not 4 soloists...just a string orchestra playing something fast paced and perhaps with a good amount of quick string crossing. the best example i can think of would be the vivaldi summer presto...thats my best example.
