    Oh, my...there are TONS of great videos out there. I go there often to watch Oistrakh and Heifetz.

    Some popular ones/my favs.

    Kyrie from Mozart's Great Mass in C - Gardiner, R&R Orch., Monteverdi Choir

    Menuhin and Adolf Baller play Brahms' Hungarian Dance No.5

    Furtwangler conducting Beethoven's Ninth (final minutes) for Hitler and gang
    Terrible audio, of course.

    Perlman's Master Class This one is pretty nice.

    EDIT: One more Perlman Master Class

    EDIT2: Perlman playing Mendelssohn at 13. I wish I could have done that when I was thirteen.

    Hello all,

    On:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXd6M99-rz8

    I have put what must be the rarest LP of the Concertgebouw orchestra,
    a 1976 private issue live record. Only a few copies were made.
    The conductor was Andre Vandernoot, and they are playing Brahms Hungarian dances 6 and 5. And it sounds they had a lot of fun there...

    Greetings,
    Rolf

    I find the choice of tempo and general sound horrible on the Furtwangler / Hitler video! All you can hear is the percussions and, God, this is way too fast. I suppose some of it is due to the poor audio quality.

    I can’t resist mentioning my favourite singer:

    DFD singing F Schubert

    DFD singing G Mahler

    and… Dame Felicity Lott…in this video in her early career, which, perhaps, reminds me of a lot of things…

    There's also another good video of the finale of Beethoven's Third Pno Concerto performed by Brendel/Abaddo and the Lucerne Festival orchestra, but I cant seem to find it at the moment. Too bad there is no CD available of this or I would have it by now!

    Here's one for any of you (other) John Williams fans out there (!!)

    I can say with some certainty that this where I first came across the Hungarian Dances, some of them at least.

    Pigs in a Polka

    [nostalgia]It was the early years of the '90s and the country was just opening its doors to privately-owned TV channels. My maternal grandparents had a cable connection in their house, and this cartoon along with a couple of others were recorded on tape from one of those channels*, so that I could watch them whenever I went to their house.[/nostalgia]



    *That company owns/has rights to telecast about 10 or 15 channels today.

    Oh God, this is going to take me awhile... gives the chance for another count-down!!! It's not quite in good order yet, I may well come back to this.

    10. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Wddtne7KSs - Yes, THE prelude, Rachmaninoff playing it. Sorry Rach...

    9. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=928NSu5S-uo - I can't help it! Osmo Vänskä's whistling is just cool. And it's STILL classical music!

    8. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8YUIG3YgxQ - The end of Mahler's ninth is quite possibly one of my favorite endings in all music, and Bernstein describes it SO WELL!

    7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9yLz...eature=related - Sibelius concerto: Heifetz owned this piece for about 20 years because nobody else would (or could) play it.

    6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NwLDMcA9U4 - Enescu's recording of Chausson's Poeme. I've not heard Neveu's yet in full, but I don't think what I have heard of her's can compare.

    5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AK5lJFhrQ4 - Heifetz's rendition of Vitali's Chaconne sent shivers down my spine.

    4. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPQxhIC1Tls - The second movement of Sibelius' third symphony. It's probably my favorite symphonic movement in all of Sibelius (not counting the Seventh)

    3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1pbWzCRZEE - Yehudi Menuhin playing the last few minutes of Bach's overwhelming Chaconne from the second partita in D minor.

    2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5C99JyP2ns - Jaqueline du Pre's Elgar. It brought me to tears the first I heard it. The best.

    1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rECVyN5D60I - Bernstein conducting the last 5 or so minutes of Mahler's Second Symphony. Not quite the best, but still my favorite video on all of Youtube.
