I'm listening to the Hamelin recording of Liszt's Piano Sonata in B Minor. Amazing. Just incredible.

I like Maisky's.


Been listening to Shostakovich's 14th Symphony recently, bleak and rather depressing but very beautiful.

I've been listening to lots of Tchaikovsky this weekend. Especially loving Symphony #6, the Violin Concerto, and The Nutcracker.

Ellington's interpretation of (parts of) The Nutcracker is also interesting. Not amazing, but there are times where the jazz tone works quite well.

Holy shit yes! That movie may have had a weak third act but that sequence was incredible and that piece of music was absolutely incredible.


Late to this party, but I totally agree. My favorite part of the movie.

Yeah, Lacrimosa is staggering in The Tree of Life.

Also, Dreww posted this to my FB with the tagline, "Why Melancholia's worldview is wrong." I see no flaws in the argument:

:lol:

pleasantly surprised it's a guitar version... not to upstage that clip... but, for my money, the most beautiful performance of this piece ever is a duet by ida presti and alexandre lagoya...

That was great, though I prefer Hubert Drewwfus' for now.



Performance seems a bit stilted but the visual on this is similarly useful.

edit: this guy has a bunch of these
