    General comment: Feel free to comment on musical contributions, but at least accompany it with a choice of your own. I'd also like to reiterate if people can provide links, please post them!

    Would have mentioned this myself as I very much enjoy Glenn Gould's recordings. Also his rendering of the Goldberg Variations.

    http://www.youtube.com/results?sear...gould+goldberg+variations&aq=1&oq=glenn+gould (various parts performed)

    (Ar regards Cage's 4'33'' I reckon any composer/musician will appreciate an audience to remain quiet for the duration of a piece. It is the main reason I personally prefer recordings over live performances, as I find any noises from the audience quite distracting.)

    various excerpts from Fauré's Nocturnes here: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=&search_query=faure+nocturnes&aq=f

    Mahler - 3th symphony >Das trunkene Lied<. Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Riccardo Chailly conducting.

    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=&search_query=mahler+3rd+symphony&aq=0&oq=mahler+3 (various movements)

    Never understood why the intricate 4th movement's Das trunkene Lied (after Nietzsche's Also sparch Zarathustra) is followed by the "Bimmm-bammm..." chorus of the 5th and last movement...

    eh? Is that not the 3rd Symphony he renamed, not the 5th? And there is a 6th Symphony?

    Listening to "Flight of the Valkaryies"
    Makes me want to go invade Poland.

    Beethoven had 9 symphonies. The 3rd one, originally the "Bonaparte" symphony, was renamed the "Eroica" symphony after Napoleon crowned himself emperor.
