I'm a big fan of B minor. A lot of my favourite music I have later found out is in that key. Tchaikovsky used in for two of his symphonies, including his longest, Manfred. It also features prominently in Swan Lake. Other great works in the key include Shostakovich's 6th Symphony, Gliére's 3rd (Il'ya Muromets) and Paderewski's only symphony (Polonia), the latter two of these are both epic works of over 70 minutes' duration.
