Classical music, please?

I got so hooked up on the Requiem for my friend by Zbigniew.

 

Do you have your favorite?

Thanks for that Vesna. I haven't listened to that for ages. It is haunting. (I also loved his friend Kieslowski's movies - Three Colours trilogy - particularly Three Colours-Blue.) l have so many classical favourites - for sad music, I often listen to Richard Strauss's Four Last Songs. For work, I can't get away from JS Bach, and for an old, all-time favourite this fairly recent version of Schubert's Erlkรถnig with fantastic animation:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JS91p-vmSf0

Bach, Handel, Vivaldi

Same, but specifically Brandenburg Concertos, Water Music, Four Seasons.

 

Also Chopin A Flat Polonaise

This Bach's composition is so divine and touching. One of the best I've ever heard

Oh wow. I love this thread! Heart

I have a Spotify playlist with my go-to classical music, and I'm looking to grow it. I'll go listen to the ones you guys listed here.

I'm not very good with titles, so I can hum it to you, but I won't be able to identify the piece by name. Robot Sad

 Oooooh - what a wonderful accident. Was the cellist Yo-Yo Ma?  One of my all-time favourites.

 Third in a row, but the best performance.

I'm sorry, I'm completely ignorant when it comes to classical music, but if you like this, you might want to listen to Jeremy Soule's soundtrack for TES5 Skyrim game. Among many normal-length songs, there is a 40 minutes long one which is very atmospheric and is played with classical instruments (or maybe just a synthesizer) interleaved with sounds of nature. I guess there is a lot of such kind of music. But this one I love very much.

 

Gives me shivers when I listen to it

Here's a classical video I recently came across: Vaughan Williams' Five Mystical Songs, recorded in lockdown by baritone Thomas Guthrie and the Temple Church Choir. Make sure you stay for the glorious Let All The World at the end:

For something a bit less traditional, church music doesn't get any more bloodcurdling than Giles Swayne's Magnificat. Guaranteed to wake up even the doziest congregation:

John Cage, Four Minutes Thirty-three Seconds. Sublime.

Chopin, when I am working. 

I like all sorts of classical music, but a lot of it is too energetic to work to. Take flight of the valkries, for example. I can't help but get invovled - I end up conducting the orchestra.

Georgy Sviridov - The Greatest Hits (Full album)

 

'Good girl. Now put your hand in there.' He guided it inside the jeans, with her fingers resting midway on her panties. She kept her hand there but looked up at him, half aghast, half entranced.

He looked expectantly at her. She knew what she was meant to do, but it took her a few seconds. Then, slowly, she began rubbing gently against her panties. Her face looked small and her eyes soft. He smiled as though everything was now in its place and sat down again on the sofa.

'Good girl. Now start again. Tell me exactly what happened.'

She opened her mouth, continuing to rub compulsively, and began the story again. 'Well... we were talking together, and sitting... and you - you...' She looked at him, distracted. He was clearly enjoying the spectacle before him. She'd got into a rhythm now with her hand and couldn't seem to stop. 'You lifted up my skirt, and you moved your hand up my leg and... ' Her voice was small. '...under my panties. And you wouldn't stop probing. You had me up against the wall, and you were so much stronger than I am - than I was.'

He looked at her happily, unable to fully believe his eyes. What a sweet thing.

'You wouldn't stop. You put your tongue all the way down my mouth, not because - because' she trembled 'you wanted to kiss me, but because you wanted to fill me up, to not have any orifice that didn't have you inside. You were always there.'

He had already got up, and was moving closer towards her. 'Come with me' he said. 'Come over here'. He took her by the hand and led her to his desk. Then, breathing heavily, he pulled down her jeans and panties, leaving her ass exposed to the air and her **bleep** shuddering inwards.

'There.' She could hear the smile in his voice. What had she got into? But it was much too late to think about that now. 'Put your hands here', he showed her, putting one of her hands palm down on the desk and the other on her **bleep**. 'That's right. Now you can start humping the desk. And keep talking.'

The desk was hard and a couple of inches higher than the bottom of her **bleep**, so that she had to stand on tip-toes to fully reach it. It was humiliating. Somehow even more humiliating than before. She humped up and down against the desk, at first gently, then obsessively. She could almost feel him, even with the air between them, as he stood there behind her, watching her ass hover up and down, in and out.

'You raped me. It was - humiliating. You would come - and then - you would be all over me, your hands wherever you wanted. Your **bleep** wherever you wanted, like I was just some... some thing.'

Maybe a bit off topic but I created a playlist I feature on one of my sites designed for productivity.

It's a mixture of classical music, epic orchestras, relaxing electronic music, and some relaxing movie and video game soundtracks. I always have it on when working.
