Music Favourites

In the hairdressers this week (where else!) one of the hairdressers suggested some of his favourite musical pieces which I've listed here in case anyone else might find it interesting too:

  • The Legend of the Glass Mountain (Nino Rota)
  • The Dream of Olwen (Theme from the film 'While I live'.  Hearing it now on YouTube, I've always loved this piece and didn't know what it was)
  • Ravel's Piano Concerto
  • Warsaw Concerto (Addinsel)
  • Cornish Rhapsody (Hubert Bath, 1944)
  • Martha Algavich playing: Rachmaninov, Ravel, Chopin Concertos.

Incidentally, I had high- and low-lights (or high and low notes?!) put in and no-one (absolutely no-one) has noticed! Or perhaps people are too tactful to say they look awful?

This looks like a good CD for film music, and Naxos is generally a good brand:  http://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=8.554323

Now I'm thinking of a list for the hairdresser ...

  • Yellow River Piano Concerto
  • Kol Nidre (Bruch)
  • Bruch Scottish Fantasy
  • Bruch and Mendelssohn Violin Concertos
  • Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No 1
  • Introduction and Rondo Capriciosso by Saint-Saens.
  • Lizst Hungarian Rhapsody
  • Tchaikovsky Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and Romeo & Juliette, Pathetique
  • Schostokovich 
  • Lizst Liebestraum
