    He really wrote this for glass harmonica . Basically that is the sound you get when you rub the rim of a wine glass with a wet finger. Genius

    For those who think classical music was written hundreds of years ago , here's a tune to say otherwise

    Guess many may recognise the tune but how many know it is celebrating the opening of a railway ? Italians have so much more style than we brits

    Both soundtracks to the film Gladiator by Hanz Zimmer.

    There are really too many but when was very young i used to listen to peter and the wolf by Prokofiev finlandia by Sibelius pearl fishers by Bizet.Then i enjoyed the planets by holst.Most Handel and some choral works especially miserere by allegri.There are many others but this is a start.

    Some great stuff there miles.

    Arvo Part - Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten

    I've always enjoyed early-20th century American composers like Gershwin and Copland.

    Then there's Holst's Planets suite that I played repeatedly whilst growing up.

    Jupiter - youtube.com/wat…30c

    And that in turn influenced not just the composers I love now but the modern composers I most enjoy.

    And as a proud British man I obviously adore Elgar.

    I always come back to Tchaikovsky's 4th Movement, Symphony 6 though. Beautiful, sad and alluring.
