Lack of popularity? Well aren’t you quite the optimist ;) This is beautiful Alfoxus. You know I’ve only recently begun listening to classical, Beethoven my gateway drug. So I will be looking to you for some great suggestions. No pressure :)

Beethoven was my gateway drug too funnily enough. The Moonlight Sonata was the first classical piece I remember liking (particularly 1st and 3rd movs). I’ve always had a slightly weird relationship with classical music as a result of having formal piano lessons as a kid and being made to practice pieces I didn’t like. But now that I’m writing my own music I’m on the lookout for inspiration wherever I can find it!

As for some suggestions…

So Russians and Romantics basically (if you discount Glass).

Hope that helps :)

Frédéric Chopin - Étude Op 10 No 9 (performed by Valentina Lisitsa)

So moody and lyrical, love it.

Chopin - Nocturne 19 in E minor, op. 72, no. 1.

Great performance by Vladimir Ashkenazy. Freddy’s use of rubato is part of why I love him so much, but it does result in a lot of awkward performances by musicians who apparently can’t be trusted with that sort of freedom. Took me a while sifting through those to find this one.

Why y’all gotta be speeding up so much guys? And always in the most inappropriate places too.
