    It's been a while since I heard La mer... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OFT...CED38FEF&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=27 (part 1, automatically links to parts 2 & 3, performed by the Orchestre du Paris with Seji Ozawa conducting, and to Clair de lune and L'après-midi d'un faune via Related Videos)

    I know only one piece by Kodaly, probably the Hary Janos Suite (originally an opera); here's a link to the full version (with an rather odd introduction and commentary all througout...): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJIRimighS4&feature=PlayList&p=871F608AFA852270&index=0&playnext=1 (part 1, followed by pts. 2 & 3; also links to various performances, excerpts and some other pieces)

    Dmitri Shostakovitch - Symphony No. 13, "Babi Yar:" Adagio

    Approporiately powerful for such a grim and tragic subject. Very moving.

    It's indeed his most well known piece. I visited his birthplace in Hungary last year (a small city called Kecskemet), so that's where I got to know him. The Hungarians consider him one of their greatest composers (together with Bela Bartok and Franz Liszt)

    :goodjob: made me get out the CD again as well (recording by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic).
