    help me with specific classical music

    i am obsessed with this playlist at the moment:


    are there any good violin piano duet albums? looking for performances, but compilation works too.

    i've always wanted to like classical music, but never found it interesting, until now i guess (thanks to a show on amazon called mozart in the jungle). but i cant do the symphony/orchestra, gotta keep it simple via solo duet or trio.

    i like highly dynamic expressive music, 'let loose, get wild' type stuff. not technically perfect refined scripted etc.

    Little off the classic but think you would like Led Kaapana & Bob Brozman (In The Saddle). Strings of a different sort Hawaiian slack key & slide steel guitar two of the best thrown together.

    I like Baroque chamber music just a few players distinct sound.

    Check out Claude Bolling's (piano) jazz collaborations with classical musicians: Jean Pierre Rampal (flute), Andres Segovia (guitar), Pinchas Zuckerman (violin), Alexandre Lagoya (guitar), Yo-Yo Ma (cello), etc.





    Argentine tango music might be appealing too; traditionally a combo of piano, violin and bandoneon (e.g., accordian). Astor Piazolla's 'tango nuevo' movement pushed the envelope incorporating classical and jazz influences.

    He considered this his best album:

    How about Igudesman & Joo?




    on a more serious note, there's Isaac Stern:




    And another vote for Yo Yo Ma:

    Try Laurent Korcia's album Cinema. Music that's featured in movies with often some interesting arrangements.

    thanks lucretia, i really enjoyed the igudesman & joo, though i could have done without the antics.
    and then the duet with yo-yo-ma holy crap that was powerful. i knew of him but never actually listened to any of his performances, will def look into.

    found this little gem:

    The Brahms violin concerto, the Bach cello suites, Elgar's cello concerto played by Jacqueline du Pre, Beethoven's last string quartets, and if I could sway you toward choral music, Bach's B Minor Mass, which rivals my wife saying "yes, I'll marry you" as the greatest thing I've ever heard.
