I'm on a Rachmaninov kick: Piano Concerto No.2; Rhapsody On a Theme of Paganini,played by André Previn, London Symphony Orchestra & Vladimir Ashkenazy. This Russian knows how to play Rachmaninov!
I love Ashkenazy's Rachmaninov! As for weather-related musical choices, pretty well every weather means classical to me, except when it's really, really hot and I get an urge to hear salsa, reggae, tropica.Glen Gould is captivating. I always lean toward the speakers, listening for his voice.
For some reason I really enjoy Irish traditional music so much more during the winter months. I think it must be a link to a warm turf fire and a pub in County Mayo with friends.
There's many jazzes, and many decades of jazzand I love many of them, including many latin jazzes.And then -- there's jazz. Thelonious Monk and Coltrane just don't work for me. Such a girl thing, I suppose, re jazz, but there you go. :)Signed, A Girl, Unashamed.
