    I'm quite like Shostakovich's music for 'Hypothetically Murdered', a satirical play from 1930:

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    ὃν οἱ θεοὶ φιλοῦσιν ἀποθνῄσκει νέος [Those whom the gods love die young] - Menander

    I grew up with Grieg's Peer Gynt suites. Wonderful music! I have not heard the complete rendition however.

    Of course the Mendelssohn is terrific too!

    Sorry. I'm not into Schubert's music.
