I accidentally discovered Bach's Cello Suite no.1.


 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:

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.

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.
