Getting Classical Music III

Suggestions for those who don’t already love all music.

Berlioz: Romeo & Juliet – Love Scene

Leoš Janáček: Sinfonietta

Liszt – Dante Symphony – 2. Purgatorio (1/3) – the poor souls are coming out into the daylight

Scott Joplin: Treemonisha finale “Real Slow Drag”

Bernard Herrmann – Vertigo – Scene d’Amour – great movie music

Ennio Morricone: Gabriel’s Oboe – movie music in a tux

Nun liebes Weibchen, the ‘Cat Duet’ (attrib. Mozart-it sure sounds like his music)

Bryn Terfel: “O Waly, Waly” – a folk song, but so what?

Rene Pape sings Wotan 1/2

Around 3:00, very tender music for Wagner – Wotan’s farewell to his daughter, Brunnhilde

Eva Marton 1983 – Turandot – “In questa reggia” (Puccini)

Around 3:10, heads for the heights

John Rutter : Requiem 1/7 – Requiem aeternam

 Villa Lobos – Bachianas nº 5

Rocio Banquells – Cucurrucucu Paloma – pop music, but so?

Bryn Terfel – Suo Gan

Waxman: Sinfonietta for Strings and Tympani – I used this to open my very first produced play at age 18
