Sometimes Life is Good

Case in point -- I just got a CD reissue of one of my favorite classical LPs of all time. Serge Prokofiev playing his gorgeous 3rd piano concerto...

...which also includes his solo piano version of the gavotte from his Classical Symphony.

Apart from being stone beautiful, that comes in at way less than two minutes -- EMI should have released that as a pop single back in the day.

Lovely choice by I prefer his heavy metal compositions like "Alexander Nevsky" and "Romeo & Juliet"!

Hello, please remain seated,

Thanks for posting the Gavotte. I was unfamiliar with that piece and will definitely add that to my spotify list. In return, I offer you the following 1 minute and 37 seconds of sheer beauty that is the 3rd movement of Sibelius' Sonatina No. 1:
