In a classic example of killing two birds with one stone (if I say so myself), here is Dutch contralto Aafje Heynis singing Brahms's Alto Rhapsody for the benefit of JH, who is not too familiar with either.

Ever bump into an extraordinarily prolific composer you'd never heard of before? I had that yesterday, thanks to JH (again), the composer in question being Christoph Graupner. Like Bach in Mendelssohn's time, the 20th century brought a revival of interest in Graupner's work that is most encouraging but still has a long way to go.

I have a lot of exploring to do. For now, this spectacular piece may whet your appetite for more. Do read the wiki page and marvel at the prodigious output of a composer who deserves a far better fate.

I love the sound of the Oboe d'amore. So it's wonderful to come across (on Dutch classical radio) a concerto for the instrument by the Italian Baroque composer Antonio Lotti. (All these new names!) This is the version that was played:

1. Allegro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVq5aIWSYQM
2. Affetuoso: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHIyF5ql8NQ
3. Allegro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j41U2nwCEM4

I love the sound of the oboe d'amore.

To say nothing of the viola d'amore--and blow me down if there isn't a flūte d'amore as well. And they're all here in this splendid little concerto by Christoph Graupner.

This is for Joshilyn H, who introduced me to Herr Graupner, as a small token of thanks for all the wonderful videos with which she has been regaling us over the past few months and particularly during the present stressful time.

I consider myself a fan of "modern" classical music. My favorite are Prokofiev, Debussy, Satie, and Philip Glass (although he's a different era). Prokofiev's Nevsky...woah!

This thread has a lot of good info and recommendations and I'm still going through it.  So far I seem to have similar taste to NickandthePassions.  Also, I have been enjoying Chopin's Nocturnes lately:

Regarding Satie, my favorites are the Gnossiennes
