or Chopin's Marche Funèbre.
also Dvo?ák's 9th or Metamorphosis by Phillip Glass
but i don't know many
Rite of Spring
Steve Reich's Music for Eighteen Musicians or New York Counterpoint
also obvious choice but mozarts requiem. little beats that
but Barber's Adagio for Strings
Finlandia by Sibelius and Pachelbel's Canon are nice too.
Populist but lovely!
its a tone poem by Jean Sibelius
I've been listening to his music for 35 years and it still melts my heart.
I like Erik Satie - Gnossiennes No 1 and Für Alina by Arvo Pärt
you know it.....dum dum dum dum...dee dee dum dumde ddeee dee deee
Air on a G string
Saint Sans - Danse Macabre
Rhapsody In Blue
I listen to radio 3 a fair bit in my work van. I hear some amazing stuff but can never remember what they're called or who they're by.
Gavin Bryars & Philip Jeck performing "The sinking of the Titanic"; far better than the other recording I have, too.
Also, Arvo Part's "Silentium" from "Tabula Rasa" is mega hot.
i've got that on cd, but is this a different recording? Mine has the titanic thing and the jesus' blood never failed me yet one
Totally different recording. Very recent one, and considerably longer, I think. It's properly amazing.
I love Boomkat. They have all my money.
That is the one off the end of Oceans 11 (by the fountain), right?
Le Gibet or Pavane pour une infante défunte by Ravel.
Dmitri is my favourite, and his cello concerts are just marvellous
Mars, The Bringer of War by Holst (a milestone in modern classical music, I remember Bowie citing is as very influential)
Bach's Brandeburg Concerts (lovely baroquey)
Mozart's Hornkonzert/Figaros Brollop/Exsultate Jubilaten
Parts of Holst's Planet Suite (particularly Mars)
Carmina Burana by Orff (Old Spice advert!)
And bits of Mahler's 5th...and all of Beethovens piano sonata's
Vaughan Williams - Sinfonia Antartica
I do have one, but I'm too earthy and gritty to say so here.
By Hector Berlioz is staggering, and evokes a feeling of hopeless love.
chopin's ballade 1 also comes to mind.
