I am going through my iTunes library and am DJ-ing for myself. So far I have played:

- Adagio for TRON (Daft Punk)
- Derezzed (Daft Punk)
- Symphony No. 3, final movement (Saint Saen)
- Adagio, strings arrangement (Samuel Barber)
- Egmont Overture (Beethoven) [I miss playing this and the 5th Symphony with the orchestra]
- Elements - Fire (Michael McLean)

Playing now:
- Finale Op. 52 (Robert Schumann) [also miss playing this with the orchestra]

Next up:
- Concerto in E minor, 4th movement (Edward Elgar) [still remember playing this with the orchestra]
- Symphonic Dances, 1st movement (Sergei Rachmaninov)
- Libertango (Astor Piazzolla) [my teacher played the piano part in this CD!]
- Explosive (Bond)


I think that's enough for today. What have you been listening to lately or are listening to now or plan to listen to soon?

Oh, here is my teacher at the piano in Libertango (9 years ago):

- Joe Cocker...amazing. I'd like to see a Joe Cocker sub-forum. Considering his earlier excesses it's remarkable that he isn't dead...

I often listen to anime music. NOT Dragonball Z or Pokemon, but real anime. A lot of great composers are writing stuff for them, here's a sample:

Right this second I'm listening to the "Oblivion" soundtrack by M83. The music is better than the movie was, imo.

More recently, I've gotten hooked on "Sinnerman" by Nina Simone. I'm not a huge jazz fan, but this song is something else:




I've also been listening to Peter Broderick. He's hard to pigeonhole; he's got one instrumental, new age-ish album that's just lovely ("Float"), but he also does quiet indie folk that makes me think it's what Simon and Garfunkel would sound like if they were still recording together. I love this quiet, haunting song about a man who is drowning:

I'm currently listening to the Rachmaninoff cello and piano sonata. Earlier today I listened to a lot of Bach keyboard music - numerous WTC selections and a couple Partitas. Next up is probably a Chopin concerto or the B minor sonata.

Grappelli playing Gershwin hits ... presently
"Our Love is Here to Stay" ... remember Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron dancing at sunset beside the Seine ... to my mind one of the most charming bits of dance in the movie "An American in Paris".

PS Bach, Beethoven and Brahms pall ... need a bit of fresh air.

There's no fresh air in Bach, Beethoven, or Brahms? I'm afraid I'll have to violently disagree.

Some great music to be found there. It's a shame the sheet music isn't more available. What you usually find is some amateur transcription. They should get on that. They could be making some good money selling the sheet music. Video game music too.

So much of Chopin's Ballade No. 1 right now. My favorites so far are the Ashkenazy and Zimerman recordings. I just started working on this piece.

Other non-piano music.. Muse and Franz Ferdinand.

Muse is piano music too. Looks like he's had some composition training too, especially in the modulation a little after 1:30

I've got "For once in my life" by Stevie Wonder on a loop in my head.What a great singer and song writer he is.
I've also had Beethoven's fourth piano concerto in my head for the last week or so.I heard Uchida playing it at the proms last week and although it wasn't note perfect by any means, it must have made an impression on me.The 4th is my favorite and I even made an effort to learn it at one time (What was I thinking?)I've been fiddling with the first movement cadenza this week though and I might inflict it on you all in the next recital.
Good old Youtube.Uchida's performance is here if anyone's interested.

Playlists on my mp3 player are very heterogeneous. From classical to alternative, from folk to metal. With the exception of pop, rap, hip hop and the like.

At the moment I'm listening to Two Steps from heck:


Tarja Turunen (though I prefer her Nightwish era)


Loreena Mckennitt

Boira,

I really like this one song you posted by Loreena Mckennitt. Very tonal!, very easy to figure and play by ear and be worked up on the piano. I think I'll fool around with the chords for a while.
