    RACHMANINOFF PIANO CONCERTO NO 3 has always been my favorite piece of music. Here are a few minutes of it. sorry don't know how to get the video up


    Snap, Doug (re Rachmaninov 3rd). It was a high point of my career as a pianist to play this concerto... Although it starts off with disarming simplicity, the work seems to cover a whole world of emotion, and it is probably the most demanding work in the piano repertoire.

    Even the whole experience of learning it has broken at least one pianist (see the film 'Shine'). Changed my life, for sure.

    Maurice Durufle's Requiem has been haunting me recently. If choral music speaks to you, I recommend a listen... although (like a lot of my favourite pieces) it's kind of an acquired taste: grows on you.



    Perhaps the most intense moment is the Pie Jesu, starting at 20:45. Sung here by Polish Ewa Wolak. (There's also a superb recording of the legendary Janet Baker singing it, available on Youtube).

    Apparently, so Durufle told his wife, many times while writing the work he was moved to tears by it, as though discovering the music rather than composing it.

    This, like all the music that I treasure, seems to have a 'mid-wifing' quality, helping to process, to move on.

    Anyway, I hope that someone somewhere gets something out of this piece.

    PS please excuse the fanfare etc at the beginning. I didn't know how to make it start at the beginning of the actual piece.

    Just what I needed to switch off and relax - my favourite opus of J.S. Bach. Sublime.

    I've just discovered this thread, I'm sure there are many great links to explore!
