Gorecki has his own thread but I feel that this bears repeating.

Henryk Gorecki - Symphony of Sorrowful Songs.

That sounds eerily ominous and somewhat disturbing. Is there a particular recording you would recommend?

This one is highest rated, and contains most of the work I've heard of his. I absolutely adore what I've heard so far. I need to man up and get ahold of it.

A very broad genre, indeed. So many subgenres, musicians, instruments....

I love Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet (1935) and Peter and the Wolf (1936):

I like Eric Whitacre's choral compositions-particularly his work with the Virtual Choir. Check it out on youtube.

Two more heavyweights:

*Gustav Holst: The Planets (1918). I like that connection Planets' names --> Classical mythology --> Classical music.




*George Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue (1924). Here, piano is played by Leonard Bernstein (which should be mentioned in this thread too):

Anne Akiko Meyers Birds In Warped Time - Violin - YouTube

The video is being a bit spotty on my end, but it's a great bit of music, I hope some people can hear it through.
