Ok, here we go with the third series of "What are you listening to?".

I'm listening to Pletnev playing Rach-paganini rhapsody.

I'm listening to the great modern German organist Lionel Rogg (whom I've actually spoken to at the Music-scores forum before,) play Louis-Nicolas Clerambault's Suite du deuxieme ton on his CD Clerambault: Suite du premier ton; Suite du deuxieme ton. I must say, it's ravishing :).

Für Elise by Badura-Skoda :). I have learnt to re-appreciate this piece after hating it and not listening for the longest time.

Don't listen to it for a couple of years ;-). And whenever someone plays it run out of the room screaming.

Cherubini's Requiem in C Minor: Dies Irae, performed by the URSS Symphony Orchestra & Choir conducted by Roszdestvensky. Both Beethoven and Haydn admired this piece, which during that time was rated as highly as Mozart's Requiem, and I too think it is worthy of such an honor. Cherubini's characteristic perfect choral writing, a model for choral music, especially in England, to follow, develops the warm, lush, & gorgeous characteristic polyphonic idiom of Palestrina, a composer whom Cherubini studied & admired, and combines it with his own natural, almost violent dramatic power & energy, his amazing genius. Beethoven & Schumann considered him the greatest dramatic composer of their time. He was born in 1760 and died in 1840.
