Music of the Day: 16/04/13

There is so much good stuff in today’s recommended music, from sublime Brahms to great rock from Feeder. Enjoy!

Orchestral

  • Johannes Brahms, Symphony no. 4. This symphony is simply stunning, and I’d forgotten how great it was until I put it on last night (it’s going to be one of my examples for our Symphony topic in finals). I haven’t compared many versions, but the Simon Rattle/Berlin Philharmonic version seems very good to me, although I know some critics have taken issue with the tempos.

Chamber

  • Camille Saint-Saëns, Clarinet Sonata in E-flat major. An essential part of the clarinet repertoire, and for good reason – a great piece full of character and very fun (although fiddly) to play.

Vocal

  • Eric Whitacre, Sleep

Jazz

  • Duke Ellington & His Orchestra, Take The ‘A’ Train

Rock/pop/?

  • Feeder, Buck Rogers Seven Days in the Sun. Just great, simple, tracks.
