Indeed, as MrQ asked, whose interpretation of Vivaldi?

 

Anyway, nice choice with "Married Life." I love its waltzy nature, how it starts off lighthearted and sweet, but becomes slow and sad, though somewhat hopeful. If you can, find the complete soundtracks that Pixar produces for the cast and crew of each of their movies. I'm partial to the track "Cumulonincompoop."

John Williams, Hans Zimmer and Michael Giacchino are my favourite composers!! Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell are two of the best violinists I know of. Andre Rieu is a good violinist and his orchestra is top notch.

I was lucky enough to try the Stax SR-009 at my dealership a few weeks ago, and I felt the 'Holy Crap!' moment when I played 'Genesis' by Justice =)

If you like french electro, try SebastiAn's new album, Total. One of those tracks is in my original list.

Ornette Coleman - Free Jazz

 

Just listened to this for the first time ever, mind blasted. 

 

From Wikipedia:

 

Quote:
The record was recorded in stereo, with a reed/brass/bass/Drums quartet isolated in each stereo channel. Free Jazzwas, at nearly 40 minutes, the lengthiest recorded continuous jazz performance to date, and was instantly one of Coleman's most controversial albums. The music features a regular but complex pulse, one drummer playing "straight" while the other played double-time; the thematic material is a series of brief, dissonant fanfares; as is conventional in jazz, there are a series of solo features for each member of the band, but the other soloists are free to chime in as they wish, producing some extraordinary passages of collective improvisation by the full octet.

For wow'ing the 'unexperienced': Money for Nothing - Dire Straits.

Simple but effective.

 

As for classical, I like this one very much on headphones:

This one needs to be mentioned also:

(every individual track)

I'm loving 'Magneto' track from the X-Men: First Class ost. 

 

Can anyone recommend similar? Sort of Electro Orchestral stuff would be great!

 

Thanks
