Here's a composer who has managed to pass me by until now - the Mexican Arturo Márquez (born 1950). Here's his Danzón No 2, with the brilliant Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Orchestra from Venezuela.

A well-known piece in a version new to me. Saint-Saens - "Danse Macabre", transcribed for piano by Liszt, and "arranged" by Horowitz. Not the best sound, and I agree with a couple of comments - recorded a bit too closely, and the piano could have been tuned better - apparent at the very end. But a spirited performance by Dmitry Masleev, aged around 26 at time of recording.
I came across a better performance/recording on medici.tv earlier today, but it does not seem to have hit YT yet.

Excellent - and I agree that the piano sound isn't brilliant (or rather is too brilliant). I didn't detect out of tune though - you have a finer ear than me - unsurprisingly.
Don't blame me - I voted remain :con

A reworking of "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana by Carl Orff.

Thanks Chaggers - quite my cup of tea. :)

I stumbled across this and quite like it. Nothing great, but a decent performance of Siloti's transcription of "The Swan" from "The Carnival of the Animals" (Saint-Saëns).

No, not a swan in sight, but it still calms me in totally daft times. :y

In total contrast - Eva Cassidy, January 1996.

And contrast again. The nostalgic piano music of Eric Satie combined with artwork by Edouard Leon Cortes. For me, absolutely wonderful. I hope others will enjoy.

Try this if you haven't come across Gisela João before. She's a modern-day fadista, and has become incredibly popular in Portugal.

Fado is a traditional Portuguese music genre, generally performed with just voice and acoustic instruments, particularly the fado guitar. It's usually mournful in character, expressing resignation, loss, melancholia and longing. Not exactly cheerful stuff, but worth a listen.

Thanks for that - a voice I find very attractive and I'll be searching for more of her recordings.
I did come across this - the same song and recording, but with Portuguese text. I find the sound of the language quite beautiful, and the way the vowels elide - is that the right word? - quite fascinating.

A fave Rach/Prel. Not great sound, or performance, but it has something....

Looking through an old hard drive, I found some music videos I had almost forgotten about.

For late-night chill, how about this from Norwegian pianist Tord Gustavsen and his trio?

Du Var Främling Här Igår.

Sound familiar? You'll probably recognise it, though, as it's a cover of "I Close my Eyes (and Count to Ten)", best known from its recording by Dusty Springfield, though the Swedish words are completely different.

Dusty's version is great, but if anything I prefer this one, sung by Anni-Frid Lyngstad, who had a successful solo career before she joined Abba.
