Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana :-)

Anything by MANTOVANI

Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, particularly the slow movement. Holds a lot of memories for me.

I also like Sibelius' Finlandia - don't know why but it always makes me want to cry.
Pathetic aren't I?

Vaughan Williams - Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis - Magical!!

Dear All


My all time favourite is Canon in D by Pachelbel.

I first heard this piece of music on a 45rpm record in my early teens.

Listened to many variations of this since.

Take gentle care
Best wishes
Elizabeth, EOS

May well have a long session with the headphones tonight. Accompanied by a few cold drinks.

The Romance from The Gadfly Suite by Rostaprovich - it was the theme music for Riley, Ace of Spies

Beethoven - Piano Sonata No. 23 in F Minor "Appassionata"

My poor old digital Yamaha is just about up for this but not ideal.

Another great one at full volume (or with decent headphones on) is Cars by Gary Numan - was listening to it earlier this afternoon. It was used in an advertisement on television recently but can't remember which one.

Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 2 in C Minor

I do rather like Handel's Water Music and Firework Music too and yes - a decent music system does make all the difference


Andrew Report 9 Feb 2013 17:25

Mines the Water Music Suites by Handel. I have several different recodings of the work. I like to play it loud when no-one else is in the house (like now) Sounds very nice with 90 watts per channel and floor standing speakers.
