True that, Mars is pretty scary stuff. Next to look up the Brahms #1.
Slightly OT but I was listening to Bach's Ciaccona (Chaconne) from the Partita for Solo Violin in D minor the other day and it occured that it would make a very interesting piece done prog rock style. Like Ham Sandwich suggested, it would work as a selection of passages from the piece, probably not possible to tackle as a whole, but then again, wouldn't it be grand?
Btw I admire what Brahms had to say about this piece:
"On one stave, for a small instrument, the man writes a whole world of the deepest thoughts and most powerful feelings. If I imagined that I could have created, even conceived the piece, I am quite certain that the excess of excitement and earth-shattering experience would have driven me out of my mind."
