For a change I brough some classical music to work. Two of my favorites are

 

Portrait of Vladimir Horowitz

Mahler Symphony No.2 - London Symphony Orchestra

 

Does anyone here ever listen to classical? If so, what do you like?

mainly the very popular stuff...im still building the collection...plus ive taken up classical piano so listening/playing lots of bach.

 

I love the cello, so have Elgar (i think) plus Bachs preludes. ANd finally have started to get a bit more into chamber music like the Trout etc especially quartets/quintets...they sound really pure to me.

Miserere - Allegri

The Planets - Holst

Scheherzade - Rimsky-Korsakov

7th & 9th Symphonies - Beethoven

Finlandia - Sibelius

Organ Concerto - Saint Saens

Eine Alpensinfonie - Richard Strauss

 

If those don't inspire you to start stealing riffs & chord progressions, take up karaoke!

Gosh, there's so much good stuff ...

A few favorites, though:

 

Chopin piano pieces (I like "My Favorite Chopin," by Van Cliburn)

Aaron Copeland, "Appalachian Spring"

Brahms Piano Concerti Nos. 2 and 3

Dvorak's "New World" symphony

Most anything by Debussy ...

 

I usually go in phases where I listen to a lot of classical music for a while, then don't listen to almost any .... This post makes me want to dust off a few discs, though, for sure. thanks!

Too many to mention... But recently, I took a short vacation and I drove for two hours to the mountains. I put the Goldbergs played by Keith Jarrett in the car stereo, of all things... and on *harpsicord*! My friend and I listened in awe without saying a word. Amazing!!

 

Also, Strvinsky's "Rite of Spring" by Zubin Metha

Chopin's "Studies" by Pollini

Shostakovitch "Preludes and Fugues" by K. Sherbakov

and of course the Well Tempered Clavier played by Glenn Gould - I listen to it once a month at least. :)

Marino - is the Glenn GOuld performance on piano or harpsichord? I'm looking for a nice piano performance.

 

My list topper is the Brahms BbM Piano Concerto. It's such a powerful piece. Of the biggies, his music always seems to fall into my fingers, too. All of his short piano pieces.

 

Pick a Brandenburg, or the 2 Violin Concerto by Bach.

 

I also love the Solti-Chicago recordings of the Beethoven symphonies.

 

Does anyone have a favorite recording of "The Rites of Spring"

Gould played the WTC on the piano - he very seldom played harpsicord. It's one of his greatest recordings IMO.

BTW I DON'T advice his recording of the Brahms Bb concerto with Bernstein. It's so slow and peculiar, I feel you should hear a more "normal" interpretation before Gould's.

 

I have two version of the Rite of Spring - by S.Ozawa and Z.Metha. Both are excellent.
