With all classical music, what makes a great composition
even greater are the solo artists and orchestras. I have included in my list the
name of the solo artist (if applicable) along with the orchestra, title of album
and release date. Should make it pretty easy for you when you are looking for
it, but if you’ve got any questions, give me a shout-out and I’ll get back to

(orchestral, film music, brilliant!)
Title: Rhapsody in Blue; An American in Paris

I enjoy classical music but also know the best recommendations need to be left to the expert and she has you covered. My reco's of music are varied, in some ways extreme and may not seem to all fit together. With that said, I enjoy music that holds the following for me and often times all in one song: tells a great story, has appropriately high or lo energy, has a 'beat' I cant get out of my head and often catches me by surprise. There are too many to show here so i will update over time. If you have a recommendation give us a shout to add to the list!
