Hi everyone!

I have a classical recommendation: Lavinia Meijer - 'Nuvole Bianche'. (I can't post any links yet so you have to search for it yourself on Youtube )
Lavinia is a Dutch artist, she plays the harp. I think it's a beautiful song.

Nuvole Bianche is originally written by the contemporary composer Ludovico Einaudi for piano.
The harp version sounds very soft and naturally beautiful. Thanks for the song recommendation.

My recommendation is an interesting interpretation of a famous piece of the 19th century.

Thanks for the information! Didn't know that, but I have to admit I don't know anything about classical music apart from the famous pieces of Bach, Mozart etc.

Something along those line, please!
Had never heard of that one before. Listening to it right now, interesting stuff.

It's got a little bit of Gershwin, a little bit of Beethoven, and frankly, a little bit of just about everything all in one album!

Wouldn't call this "classical" music, but I guess it's hard to categorize so might as well give it a random label.

Steve Reich - Music for 18 Musicians

I always feel like I have to be doing something smart when I listen to this piece.

I'm pretty into Beethoven's symphonies, a lot of orchestral soundtracks (Joe Hisaishi, Alien, LotR), I absolutely dig The Rite of Spring, and anything else by Stravinsky, but I'm looking for more artists to add, preferrably ones who are very adept at making complicated and difficult music, or at least very stimulating and emotional music.
More modern composers would be cool too, I've been getting into Philip Glass, but I want more and more!
Just a thought, I don't get bored easily, but if a song doesn't leave me wondering what it's about, I might not enjoy it, so very mentally stimulating music, if that helps at all.

Thanks a biscuit

Yup, a little, but I don't have a lot of his stuff in my collection, something I'm hoping to fix once the library opens up again.

I recommending listening to Arnold Schoenberg (especially Verklarte Nacht, Op. 4. The most beautiful string quartet I've ever heard) for complex atonal music like Stravinsky (though the two approach the situation with two very different schools of thought) and Steve Reich (his phases and Music for 18 Musicians are great) for minimalist stuff like Phillip Glasshole.

And I also love John Cage, my favourite (modern and otherwise) composer. Check out Sonatas and Landscapes, A String Quartet in Four Parts, Four, and Roaratorio.
