BEETHOVEN-Turkish March (from "The ruins of Athens") -- Evgeny Kissin
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtg8Gi11nic&feature=g-all-lik

The Turkish March of Beethoven is a piece of work "The Ruins of Athens." Supposedly the goddess Athena returns to the beloved City (before 1821) and sees only ruins, there was once such a glorious city .

took a couple of days off from wagner.... but tonight, I'm staying home and putting in the DVD of 'the ring resounding'.. Never seen it. that was one of the draws of this set.

But before that there is a disc of overtures and the "siegfried idyll' that Solti recorded with vienna during the time he recorded 'the ring' that was included with the set

there is a little choral work called Kinder-Katechismus that has a melody from 'the ring'
performed with the Vienna boys choir. Other than that this disc is identical to
Wagner: Overtures / Siegfried Idyll

but I'm listening to it from
Wagner: Der Ring des Nibelungen (Super Deluxe)
of course, and no it will not fit on my shelf and I don't know where I'm going to store it. I honestly didn't think about that part when I bought it.

Nada: funny, but I'm just listening to "Winterreise" right now myself too! (Schreier/Schiff here)

Skaynan -

sorry for being late (I had to be on the phone for quite some time).

Yes, coincidences happen. - I had started to make my own list of 25 favorites to post on the other thread and came up with a lot of Schubert and suddenly felt the need to listen to "Winterreise". It's giving me shivers all the time ...

With Pregardien/Staier I never felt the need to watch out for other performances; on the radio I once heard Hotter with some songs of Winterreise and thought it to be great singing. So maybe in the future ...

As for my list: I can't "boil it down" to 25, I'll probably won't post it ...

Listening now: Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 5 "Reformation"; Symphony No. 1. Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid/Peter Maag
