    With Robert Merrill? Utterly utterly sublime!

    Big fan of Grieg's Piano concerto by Grieg.



    I'll be honest, since getting into classical music, I've realised how much of it was written just to allow someone to show off.

    I have a multi CD set of the Ring Cycle but as I find opera close to unlistenable I've never played it.
    I've started listening to Radio 3 and most of what they play sounds great.

    A few favourites

    Peter and the Wolf
    Carnival of the Animals
    Nutcracker Suite

    Cavalleria Rusticana (not sure of my spelling) and Concerto de Aranjuez are both truly beautiful pieces of music, capable of moving me to tears almost. Especially the performance of the latter in the film 'Brassed Off'. (The original on Guitar is also amazing)
    Not limited to classical music but for some reason Brass Band music always moves me, it's just so evocative and powerful and expressive.

    Anyone who loves classical music, especially on piano, should youtube Valeriana Litsova (again not sure of my spelling). Talented in the extreme and you can lose hours watching and listening to her

    Just back from an evening with Mark Radcliffe in Bramhall.
    He was asked what gigs he sent to these days and interestingly he said he isn’t that keen on going to rock or pop music gigs as it all seems to be like stuff he heard before but now prefers to go to listen to sacred choral music, Thomas Tallis or Harry Christopher and the 16.
    He plans to do a grand tour of European cathedrals to listen to evensong.
