Be sure to listen to both parts.

I first heard it as a child, probably at school if I remember correctly and it reminds me of my childhood. It has a powerful suggestion of overcoming the storms of life and conquering all that befalls you.


I only listen to classical when i'm reading in bed so it makes me sleep

Possibly quite the opposite of what you listen to but verrrrrrrry relaxing - and entertaining. Despite being minimalist his work is both evocative and expressive.

Hi Lazza yes indeed I have and I agree his music is provocative and stirring..brings out the femininity in some men. beautiful music...

Greg just called you a posh cow

I think that Satie's personal life, being a bit of a loner and a sandwich short of a picnic appeals to me. I kinda feel an affinity.

I will have to think of a few pieces to talk about with you and will definitely listen to anything you would recommend, provided I can youtube it.

My first love is Opera tho...I listen to it everyday.

Hey!!

Lazza has gone to vote for you in the madness section

The composer is Franck

Will Youtube it.
