Not exactly classical, but still excellent.

Pavarotti and Tracy Chapman - Baby Can I Hold You Tonight

For half way between baroque & classical:

C P E Bach

Here is an amazing rendition of his Flute concerto
Philippe Bernold with the Concerto Avenna in Poznan (Poland) in 1989

Check out the speed / tempo and virtuosity!!!

I don't give much for Andre Rieu's showmanship; but in this piece, he stays very much in the background and leaves the stage to a 13-year old girl. And does she ever deserve to be on centre stage!

One of the best selling classical music recordings of all time and certainly the most successful recording of a new composition in the history of the classical record business - Henryk Górecki - Symphony Nº3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVITZUQ_uIU


A solo soprano sings a different Polish text in each of the three movements. The first is a 15th-century Polish lament of Mary, mother of Jesus, the second a message written by a 18 year old girl on the wall of a gestapo prison during World War II, and the third a Silesian folk song of a mother searching for her son killed in the Silesian uprising. The first and third movements are written from the perspective of a parent who has lost a child, and the second movement from that of a child separated from a parent.

Core 'ngrato

There are many versions of this classic written for Enrico Caruso by Salvatore Cardillo in 1911.

I have chosen a 1961 version by Franco Corelli.

And a 1930's version by Tino Rossi

Joaquín Rodrigo's moving Concierto de Aranjuez.

Yes geoq, that is brilliant. Haven't listened to it for ages, got it somewhere, but funny thing is as soon as you mentioned it
the opening bars came into my mind. Stirring is what I'd call it.

Joaquín Rodrigo's moving Concierto de Aranjuez.

There are a number of versions on youtube. I have chosen one by Kaori Muraji - 村治佳織

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUrLvfyCTy4

and another by Joaquín Rodrigo

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHTIHvhn6bc

Joaquín Rodrigo lost his sight at the age of three after contracting diptheria and wrote his compositions in braille.
