Music That Gives My Readers Goose Bumps – part I

My rather spontaneous post about  my top 10 music that gives me goose bumps inspired by Cosi Fan Tutte turned out to be my most successful post by far.

I’ve received a lot of feedback on different social media sites and fora, it would be too much of a pity not to share this, as there is excellent stuff in there I could have mentioned myself. Listed below in random order. I’ll quote the source’s avatar name in brackets, and my little personal comment (if any) right next to it.

To make these posts manageable I’ll only list 10 per post. Again, source are all publicly available Youtube links.

Expect more to come.

By the way, I’d really appreciate hearing more from you, this has been extremely fun so far!

Mozart: Piano Concerto no. 21 – Andante (GuidoF) – oh yes absolutely, this piece I’ve even added to the soundtrack of my own wedding video.

Bach’s b-minor mass (GuidoF) – sure, I’ve already posted about it here.

Ravel: Ma Mère l’Oie (SonnetCLV) – Ravel really has extremely touching moments

Berg: Lulu’s death (Albert7) – I’m not a Berg fan across the board, but this is beautiful

Verdi: Don Carlo – Et giammai m’amo (GuidoF) – among my favorite Verdi operas as well

Vivaldi: Gloria RV589 (accwai) – Yes yes yes, can’t be bothered with most of Vivaldi, but this one is great!

Scarlatti: Sonata K213 (accwai) – In a recent twitter conversation with Jens F. Laurson (@classicalcritic) he seemed shocked by my somehow dismissive comment here about Scarlatti leaving me cold. Well, he has a point, and I’ve since changed my mind. This is another case in point.

Bantock: Celtic Symphony (Metairie Road) – have to admit had never heard this before, but beautiful

Brahms: Alto Rhapsody (Andolink) – I doubt Andolink has read my blog post about it, but he recommended exactly the same Herreweghe recording – nice.

Bach: Largo from the Double Concerto BWV1043 – oh yeah, this needs a future blog post.

That’s all for today, as said before, more to come! And please, give me more!

I'm not a professional musician, I don't work in the music industry, I'm just what the name says, somebody who loves music. I've been in love with music for all of my life, took piano lessons for nearly 10 years, and played in several amateur Jazz groups. I go to concerts, both classical and Jazz, quite regularly. And I collect music previously on vinyl and CDs, now on my computer, and am slightly OCD on my music collection. You can reach me at Musicophile1(AT)gmail.com
