Jaqueline du Pre was of the most talented cellists in the 20th century.
Here career was tragically cut short at age 28 when she had to stop performing due to MS.She died in 1987 at the age of 42.
Here is one of the most beautiful works by Gabriel Faure, his Elegy Opus 24.

Thank you Mozart! We have missed you!

I miss your writing too :(

I don't have any classical music to share but I watched The Signal a few weeks ago and just loved the soundtrack to it.

Here is a link
The Signal (2014) Trailer #1 Music - YouTube

I will also include a quote from a wiki article I looked up about it

"Co-writer Carlyle Eubank explained the film similarly saying "The real crux of the film is how the characters... find who they are as people through adversity"."

and this

"
The musical score for The Signal was written by composer and experimental musical instrument designer Nima Fakhrara.[21] Fakhrara, who has a background as a dulcimer player and student of Persian classical music, approached the production seeking to contribute having been a fan of Eubank's earlier film Love.[22]
As half of the film takes place indoors, Fakhara produced a number of custom instruments for the film designed to limit resonance, including a pagoda made of ceramic insulators, gongs, a number of bowed instruments, a steel marimba, and a tenor violin fashioned with viola strings.[22] When the characters journey outdoors, the music and instruments were changed. A number of the custom instruments had to be transported to Skywalker Ranch, where Fakhrara was mastering the score.[22]The music supervisor was Aminé Ramer.
Fakhrara and Eubank went through 45 versions of the music for the opening credits scene before they chose a final version."

Film music !! YES !! The Signal was new to me...have to check that film out.
Being the movie obsessive I am ( favourites Italian and French cinema ) : here is a famous song from one of the greatest film makers from Hungary Bela Tarr , one of the great visionaries in cinema.

Yes, excellent

I am uncertain as to whom she is singing about...her husband or her lover?

Can you answer that?

Cool Circle dance

Karrer ( the main protagonist in the film ) is her lover,but she finished the affair with him ( she is married ) , and he tries to rekindle it by offering a shady deal ( smuggling ) to her husband Sebastyen to get him out of the way for a limited time.
She broke off to have a better life and get famous as a singer ,so the song is directed at her
( somewhat former ) lover Karrer , but one could well take it as a statement about love in general.
And here is another one:
Tarr's epic masterpiece is ''Satantango'' ( what a title ! ) , a 7 1/2 hour film made in 1994, only to be compared with Bondarchuk's 'War and Piece' ,1966, or Rivette's grandiose 'Out 1',1971 . ( These are the greatest visionary films in modern cinema in my books . )
Here is the so called ''Circle dance 2 '' from Satantango.

Maurice Ravel wrote the famous Bolero , we all know that.
But among his most colourful and intense works is e.g. the Concert Rhapsody "Tzigane'', a Gypsy style Fantasy. here played by one of the most stunning violinists of our time:
Patricia Kopachinskaja.
The first 5 minutes are without orchestra and around 5.15 the orchestra sneaks in.
One of the most intense works of Ravel.

Gabriel Faure is a longstanding favorite of Mozart.
Not sure whether I posted this in the past , but here it is anyway :
the magic last movement of his Requiem Opus 48 "In Paradisum".
There is no more beautiful music than this.

The most exciting violinist and of the best pianists around together in one of the grandest works for violin and piano , Beethoven's mighty, colossal 'Kreutzer Sonata '>
High voltage !!!

Great to see that you have been back on here Mozart
have missed your wisdom. I did my best to keep the boat
afloat . I haven't been on for a while been struggling with
my own demons.
This composition says what I feel.
