      Haunting; you can tell what inspired the work just by listening.

      Try Music for 18 Musicians too.

      On a modern note, this album is absolutely FANTASTIC.

      Thank you... this made me turn off John Suchet and explore! There is a beautiful, if rather melancholic, simplicity about it.

      Great thread, and I've really enjoyed listening to various posters' contributions, thank you. I remember watching a film, Death in Venice, back in the early 70s for which the soundtrack included Gustav Mahler's Adagietto in 5th Symphony. The first time I heard it I was mesmerised and, more than 40 years later, it still haunts me and remains my favourite piece of classical music. It is sad, but simultaneously uplifting. When eventually I join the great Seagull in the Sky I'd be more than happy to have this played at my send off. Enjoy.



      Mrs SUA Seagull and I were on holiday in Venice a couple of years back and attended a performance of Vivaldi's Four Seasons by the Venice Chamber Orchestra, in a small baroque church just off St Mark's Square. It was a tiny venue, an intimate audience of no more than 30 and the setting was stunning. The concert itself was quite beautiful. I believe that such concerts are a regular feature and would unreservedly recommend the experience to any NSCers visiting Venice as a great way to spend an evening there.

      About time this got a bit of a bump. I'd not heard this before, it popped up on my Spotify classical playlist and it's blown me away



      When I say 'blown me away', I mean it's really quite lovely music to listen to at work.

      We have just started rehearsing Carmina Burana... I have a whole series of pretty challenging earworms!

      Classical is great to relax and think to, or just relax. I used to drive a cab and listen to the Southern FM or one of the main nationals and flipped the dial one day to classic Fm. The physical effect on me was instant. Relaxed. Stayed with it until Fri and Sat nights when the weekend warriors would demand more upbeat sounds. "WTF is going on with the tunes drive?" etc.
      On another note.Here is some 'nearly classical' that I really like.
      Have you seen the Muppet Show........
