Wistfulness and Tragedy

Gabriel Fauré: Pavane (1887) for orchestra (and optional chorus)
Richard Wagner: Andante (mvt. II) from Symphony in C major (1832)
Jan Ladislav Dussek: Concerto in B-flat major (1805–06) for two pianos and orchestra
Hector Berlioz: Nuits d'Été (1841/1856) for voice and orchestra
Fauré: Suite from Pelleas and Melisande (1898) for orchestra
I'll hold off on saying much until the long-anticipated Actual Radio Show Blogging begins, soon. That Régine Crespin album is one of the best things ever, though.

Yip. Crespin's Nuit D'ete is totally awesome.

You're the one who got that CD for me, a couple or three Xmases ago. Excellent choice!

One of you or the other bought me a copy of that Crespin album a couple of years ago, too. Thus do musical tastes propagate through the immediate family...
