Hello!

I would like to receive suggestions about classical music I should
listen to before I die.

I will base my next purchases on your suggestions.

Regards and thanks in advance.

There will be plenty of music after you die, and it's free. Save your money.

I fully agree Mar 31, 2010

Brian,

I admit I do agree. (You've made me laugh hysterically)

But in the meantime I would like to hear suggestions anyway.

Thanks, though. It was the best reply ever!

Y

Bach B minor mass Mar 31, 2010

I played it last Autumn and was very moved by it.
Mahler's 4th symphony - sheer joy.
Wagner Adagio for clarinet and string quintet
Rossini overture to the Barber of Seville
Wow, I'd better not go on, the list could get very long.

My favourites Mar 31, 2010

Carnival of the Animals and the Danse Macabre by Saint Saens
The Planets by Holst
Carmina Burana by Karl Orf
Swan Lake by Tchaichovsky
The Four Seasons by Vivaldi

There are so many pieces, but I would say these are my favourites!

my compatriot Mar 31, 2010

I am proud to be a Chopin's compatriot and on the 200th anniversary of his birth (widely celebrated in Poland) I would recommend you his nocturnes. This is the music I usually play while working at night. On the other hand, if you really want a taste of Polish sound (of his time), do go for mazurkas.

spring! Mar 31, 2010

The Four Seasons by Vivaldi


A few days ago I was going to the train station and there was a violonist playing in the street. I gave him a coin and he asked me: madam, what would you like me to play for you? I was completely puzzeled so I said: something joyful... oh, I know! Vivaldi's Spring! and it was the best performance of Spring I've ever heard!

Wat to listen to before you die! Mar 31, 2010

I would suggest Ravel's Bolero. The original, long version, if you please. You need to stretch out the time before you die as long as possible.

Ride of the Valkyries - if you have to go, you might as well go out with a roaring bang. That is Wagner, I believe. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Enjoy them for as long as the Good Lord grants you time.

Happy Easter!

Lucinda

Some ideas Mar 31, 2010

Vivaldi's "The four seasons" and music by Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni.
Bach's "Toccata and fugue in D minor" (if you get to hear it in a cathedral played on an organ - its mindblowing).
You can never go wrong with Mozart.
And from contemporary classics Id suggest Ludovico Einaudi.

Brahms' 4th symphony Mar 31, 2010

Far from being a classical music expert, but I simply love Brahms' 4th symphony. I feel like the movement of the music is lifting me on seawaves... or something like that - I can't really describe it, but do listen to it.

When I was little I also used to love bringing out my Dad's LP of Classical Russian music and listening to Borodin's "Steppes of Central Asia" and "Polovtzian Dances". I get very emotional listening to them now, but I don't know if it's because of childhood memorie

I get very emotional listening to them now, but I don't know if it's because of childhood memories or because they're prime examples of classical music.

Beethoven's piano concerto no. 5 Mar 31, 2010

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akc0v_KTZBM

This is what I asked my wife to play at my funeral, or just a little bit of it, maybe.
