    Fantasia on Christmas Carols and Hodie by RVW, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, the Choir of Guilford Cathedral, and conducted by Sir David Willcocks, on the EMI label. It's getting me into the mood of the season!

    Default What are you listening to right now?

    Every forum has one of these threads

    I'm listening to the Sibelius violin concerto 1st movement as I'm typing right now. For some reason, after practicing violin, I always feel like listening to this concerto.

    As strange as it may seem, I was thinking about starting the same thread, here.

    Anyway, right now I'm listening to nothing, apart from the ambient noise(more like hearing). But before that I was listening to JSB's harpsichord-arrangement of Vivaldi's concerto for 4 violins.

    Mendelssohn's String Octet, my favourite, alongside with the obvious Violin Concerto. This recording is by the Medici and Alberni Quartet, it's an old rip I got from someone... I'm looking for a better recording of the Octet. Any suggestions?

    The one on Naxos seems to get good reviews.

    Debussy Orchestral Music CD - Concertgebouw/Haitink. The best CD I currently own. Also have Glorious Pipes with Gheorghe Zamfir on the panpipes, and Diane Bish on the organ ... SUPERB stuff.

    This morning on the way to work I listened to Shostakovich's 2nd Piano Concerto, along with part of the finale to Mozart's operatic fragment L'oca del Cairo, KV 422. As it turns out, L'oca del Cairo may actually be a composition of J.M. Kraus of Sweden, but the piano concerto seems to be authentically Shostakovich

    Shortly prior to this post... Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies (Orchestra). Currently (applying the corrective to my "Brahms myopia"), Hungarian Dances 17-21 followed by Symphony #3. Mustn't hold the actions of Brahms supporters of the 19th century against Brahms himself. After all, if someone held the actions of certain Wagner supporters against Wagner, I would be very, very angry, and I might write a letter explaining how angry I was
