Valentina Lisitsa - covers of Michael Nyman's music arranged for piano. Fragile and beautiful - her version of 'If,' already a very moving piece of music is exquisite.

I've been listening to an odd mis-mash of music lately; the last few days my wife has been attending a wedding in another state so I've dragged out my CDs in my car and played a bizarre medley of sounds; from the Ink Spots ("I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire") to Lorena McKennitt ("Mummer's Dance"; beautiful song) to Marilyn Manson ("Redeemer") to Frank Sinatra ("My Way").   Not kidding.  

This morning, whilst driving to the airport to pick her up, I popped in my CD of Louis Armstrong's greatest hits.  Armstrong is just sublime to me; "What a Wonderful World" is 'comfort music' to me.  

My musical taste is just all over the map; the only things you won't really find much of in my collection are hardcore rap or country (though I do have a bit of Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline in there...).

Driving is a great opportunity to listen to medleys of different kinds of music, IMO. It's funny how I connect certain places I drive by with the music I listened to when doing so, sometimes. :)

It's great you have such a diverse taste in music. There is always something new to discover! It's not that I necessarily dislike other genres of music, but my collector's passion is mostly focused on rock (70s classic rock and 90s alt-rock, especially), jazz (bebop/modern, mostly) and classical music.

I've been watching a couple of music videos with my daughter, recently. She especially likes easy rhythms and real people dancing, rather than animations. She liked Daft Punk's "Around the World", "The Scatman" from the 90s, or Lou Bega's "Mambo No. 5". ;)

 

The last CDs I listened to were Franz Schubert's symphonies 7&8 (or 8&9, according to the old counting), by Leonard Bernstein and the Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam; and jazz: Earl Hines recordings from 1940-41.
