    Well ...
    Who knew? Not me.

    Mikhail Pletnev (famous Russkie pianist and latterly conductor) is also a very able composer!

    Here is his rather good viola concerto.
    Purely tonal to my ears, I'd expected some avantgardism, but no.

    Excellent performance of Bruckner's 9th symphony conducted by Currentzis with the 'missing' 4th movement substituted for some Ligeti. It works quite well!

    Quoting the person who posted this link on Facebook....
    "So beautiful...
    Rather than Shostakovich's usual brooding darkness and sardonic wit, these pieces are full with warm lyricism and Slavic charm."

    This works surprisingly well.
    Bach's D minor Toccata and Fugue played on the harp.



    I think my fingers would be a bloody, pulpy mess if I tried that.

    A new composer for me; Othmar Schoeck's violin concerto, sub-titled "Quasi una fantasia" - which seems to mean stream of consciousness meandering. But it turns out to be very pleasant and enjoyable stream of consciousness meandering!



    Rather good.
    I shall be investigating some of his other works now. ... cello concerto, violin sonatas ...

    Some excellent full concert videos on the Gothenberg Sympony Orchestra's website.
    Shosty 10, Mahler 3 and quite a bit more.
